Tops 20 Amplifier Heads
Top 20 I would recommend buying
My Top 20 Amplifier Head that I would recommend you buy. We all have our own choices of what sound you are looking for. These are my top choices even though some are very expensive in today's market. You get what you pay for most of the time. You can buy small and cheaper amplifiers. But you might be wasting money in the long run if you really want to play live with a band. I will tell you why below.
I put a X before those I have owned. I have owned some other amps other then these, but they were not my top choices. I judge these amps by the MANY I have heard on stage, that have just rocked the house down with awesome sound! But I have to say after owning some of these I have ended up owning LINE 6!
And if you have heard some of my videos you will know how close I can get to almost every one of these amps. And you wouldn't know the difference if I told you I actually had the amp or not.
I also own two PODxt models with Model Packs installed on both, and the FBV Shortboard.
PODxt Rack Mount for live shows only.
When it comes to guitar heads for me now. I will not buy any head under 100 watts. Not unless it has XLR left and right outputs to run through a mixer. After 27 years of playing live nad doing videos, I have chosen these heads also for the all rounded sound they produce. That's if I were to even go with any other then Line 6 anymore? Line 6 is loaded with allot of amps, cabinets, and effects based off allot of these models already. And if you go listen to allot of my music www.dreidmusicalx.webs.com and on You tube where I have over 85 videos. You would see what Line 6 can do. I use Line 6 in all of my Direct Recorded videos. very cool stuff and the way of the future to me!
