The sound of an electric guitar depends on the amp
The sound of an electric guitar or a combo amp discord Today we will talk about how the equipment is responsible for the sound and amplification of a guitar. By itself, the electric guitar, as you know, sounds exceptionally quiet, dull and inconspicuous, therefore, the amp will greatly influence its sound.First, some general theory. So, there are tubes (this is the best that can be), the transistor (inferior tube) and hybrid - a mixture of the transistor and lamp.Let us consider the first category: these combos fully implemented on lamps (perhaps with the exception of the power supply) and the entire audio signal path passes through the tube circuits, transistors and chips may be present, but should not affect the sound. There is a view not only to build quality, and circuit boards, but also applies to the sound. Tube Amplifiers are better than others "get along" with congested sound of distortion (high overload) and various sounds (fuzy, overdrive, all kinds of distortion).The disadvantage of these are a higher price and a number of other nuances. For example, the lamps have a service life (sometimes it's 1000 hours) and then may be workable, but the sound quality will decline. Coma, they are much stronger noise at low volume, especially when there is no ground in the power supply. There is a small nuance, and when the Tine combos - you must first turn on the power light bulbs]and only a minute to include a second switch (Stand By). This is to ensure that the bulbs have a filament might warm up enough before it is submitted to a high voltage - it prolongs lamp life, or at least does not reduce. Sometimes the lamp may have a microphone effect - ie the lamp becomes sensitive to sound vibrations, it causes feedback (excitation, which sounds a shrill whistle) circuits or simply unpleasant overtones adds to the game. This effect is most likely to occur because of the large depreciation of lamps as the factory lamps with effect rejected. Another drawback (perhaps for someone and not a problem) - it is their electricity consumption. A little 5 watt combo can consume 100 watts from the network and is not highly dependent on how loud you play the volume. Accordingly, the larger the combo, the more powerful it requires a power supply and the greater will be the cost of electricity (this is more a problem for Rep. (Rehearsal) bases and small studios). This is the eternal dilemma for electric guitarists. That is all, I hope this article has proved to have interesting and informative.
