Ah yes the struggles of playing your electric guitar without an amp while hearing the notes you play clean everyday. Tbh i really need an amp and i miss hearing the distortion sound when my guitar was plug into a amp and i was hoping if anyone would give me pointers for my first time ever to purchase an amp and also could someone explain to me about cab packs and guitar pickups and why im asking this is bc i dont know anything about guitar sounds and i just came to the school to improve my leaning and about a month ago i want on the store and saw the cab packs and the pickups and i think i know a little bit of guitar picks up but not fully and to me the stuff in the guitar selection is the guitar and the cab packs and the pickup and tbh i want to start learning about what products and gear that i could get for when i play guitar to make it sound better and yeah so if anyone would tell me it would make me feel less dumb lol

    Also, don’t forget most shops will let you test out amps before you buy them so you can always go in and test some and see what you like.

    I don't know all of the ins and outs of amps, but from my experiences at various guitar shops, I always find tube amps to be the clearest and most crisp sounding. Running a tube amp through a cabinet seems like a lot of peoples setup, and I may do the same when I can afford it.

    Hope this helps!

    boss katana, great with patches u can use to create a lot of sounds, and the option to set it to 0,5 watt, so the neighbours still like you (and the amp does really sounf good at 0,5, i use it all the time)
