Have you been trying to find a good and decent guitar amp but haven’t been able to find one? When you’re a guitar player, whether you play an electric guitar, an acoustic, or an acoustic-electric guitar, your amp is the most important part of your equipment that you need. If you have a bad or low quality amp, then your tone will sound off and terrible, so you need to find the right amp that fits your needs, your instrument, and has a good, crisp, high quality sound to impress your audience, even if you’re just playing for friends and family at home.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re first starting out and just now learning to play the guitar, or whether you’ve been playing for years and need a new amp, you need to find an amp that makes you and your playing sound good, not terrible. All of your hard work would be for nothing if you practise hard and then have a terrible-sounding amp.
So, what are amps, anyway? Amps or guitar amps are called amplifiers, shortened to amps. They’re a piece of equipment designed to help guitar players and boost your sound so you can be heard even if you’re in a large auditorium. There’s no specific size that amps come in; they come in many different shapes, sizes, and features. Every single amp ever made has its own set of unique features, so what you need depends on you as a guitar player as well as the type of guitar you have.

They have a huge selection which is what you want to see, including the best prices in the marketplace for amps. One of the neat things about Music Planet is that they don’t just sell amps and guitars; they also sell guitar amp combos that you can choose from.
- Joyo JTA05 Sweet Baby 5 Watt Vintage Tube Amplifier. It costs $499. It has a 12AX7 preamp tube, a 6V6GT power tube and it also has tube rectifications via a 5AR4 tube, which is unheard of for amps of this price! The all valve, all hand-wired class A circuitry, this amp will give you a truly vintage sound just like old, classic records. Then, when it gets to the lower volumes, it has clean, crisp tones, but when you turn the volume up, it breaks it up nicely. The low wattage gives you a warm tone at higher volumes.
- ENGL E635 Fireball 100 Head. It costs $2,499. It’s one of the best amps on the market and here at our store. The name matches exactly what this amp is—a Fireball. It has a clean channel that will let you shimmer in crunch tones all by pushing the gain control passed 12. On the Lead channel, the gain will really shine and show you its full potential with its deep, crisp sound.
