Amplifier Stack

An amplifier stack is a setup. There are half stacks, full-stacks, double-stalks and plain old stalks. The term we use depends entirely on the music style we are aiming towards. It’s not the same for retro heavy metal guitarists than for jazz guitarists. In regard to instrument amplifiers, there are two types. The combo amplifier includes an amplifier and a loudspeaker that are both separated and united by cables. The amplifier head can be placed on top of the loudspeaker. Electric guitars have half stacks.


Guitar speaker cabinets tend to use diverse speaker size combinations, including a 12” speaker or a 15” speaker. They might also include two 10” speakers, four 12” speakers or eight 10” speakers. Different bands use a wide range of guitar speaker cabinets, but it’s all about appearance since most of the times they don’t really make sounds at all. It all depends on what you are looking for. In Britain, one of the best-known amplifier stack manufacturers is Marshall. Marshall manufacturer has gone a long way and has had many modifications throughout the years. Today it has a setup that is much more portable. In America, there are plenty of well-known manufacturers, from Vox to Randall to Peavy 6505 half stack.

The Peavy 6505 is a viable alternative if you’re looking for a persistent all-tube distortion sound. Rock, hard rock and metal players use this option quite often. Because of the way that it is manufactured, it provides the user with a solid tone and great durability. On the other hand, Vox has gone a long way since it was first created. This manufacturer has developed amplifiers for many years. Vox amplifiers have clearer tones that might sound like bells. Vox amplifiers have built-in reverb and tremolo circuits so that the guitar player can enhance the music. Metal guitarists tend to use Randall amplifiers since this manufacturer focuses on solid-state circuits.
