View Full Version : Any interest in contributing to a guitar amp primer thread?

02-21-2010, 12:01 PM
This (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=553066)thread, along with tax return season, has got me wanting to get back into playing electric guitar. Up through college, I played a lot and got pretty good, but mostly acoustically. My first and only guitar amp was a Peavy Bandit 110 (I think that's the right number.) But I've never really been well-versed in the equipment side of things.

Would any of our resident guitar gurus be interested in presenting the different features of amps, what to look for, what makes a solid practice amp, etc? I'd be interested in bass amps as well.

Sorry for the open-endedness of the question, but any info would be appreciated.
