So you’ve just got your first guitar amplifier, and you’re ready to plug in and start rocking out, recreating some of the classic tones that you’ve heard from your favourite guitar heroes. The only problem is, you’re a little bit confused as to what exactly each of these little knobs actually does!!! But don't worry, PMTVUK are here to help!
In this video, we take an in depth look at the most common types of amplifier controls and how best to use them. We'll be looking at the difference between volume and gain, and how these controls work depending on whether you're using a solid state transistor amp or a valve or tube amplifier. We find out how to use EQ and tone controls to find your amplifier's tonal "sweet spot" and take a look at the differences between reverb, modulation and delay effects...plus much more!
