An amplifier is an essential piece of kit if you're playing an electric or bass guitar, and though it's not always necessary for an acoustic, you may still need one if you are thinking about gigging in large venues or outdoor stadiums. The Chase branded guitar amplifiers suit all instrument types and meet the needs of novice guitarists and professional musicians alike. We have top-of-the-range bass amps along with great value guitar amps, all at virtually wholesale prices.
We also offer a great selection of Chase guitar gig bags and cases, which guarantee to protect your bass, electric or acoustic when itís packed away for a rainy day or setting off on a tour across America
The best guitar amplifiers at the lowest prices
It doesn't matter if you're a first time guitar novice or Brian May, your music will only ever sound as good as the amplifier you're playing through. The right guitar amp can have a dramatic effect on your live performance and can dramatically enhance your playing as well.
Even if you spent next to nothing on your guitar it can still sound half decent if it's played through a top quality amplifier. However, if you have the best guitar money can buy, it will still sound dire if you amp isn't up the challenge. It's a bit like putting Lewis Hamilton in a Ford Fiesta; still quick, but no chance of making pole position.
How to choose the best amp for you
There are a number of things you need to take into consideration when buying a guitar amplifier. First and foremost, the type of amp you purchase will depend on the type of guitar you're using. Amps can range from basic 15-watt versions that are ideal for beginners practicing in their bedroom, to the high end 100-watt amps commonly used by musicians performing in large venues.
They are available as combo units, which include the amplifier and the speakers in one unit, or as amp heads, which require separate speaker cabinets. Many rock guitarists choose powerful amp heads for maximum volume, although running a combo amp through a PA system can have a similar effect.
At Chase Direct we offer a great selection of Chase branded combo units that offer outstanding sound quality and are easy to carry! This makes them ideal for gigging or transporting to the studio for a practice session or lesson.
Amp features can vary greatly and it's important that you choose the equipment you know will match your needs. For example, do you require am amp with different channels so you can change between a clean and a distorted tone?† Or do you need built-in effects to add colour and depth to your playing? We have a fantastic choice of amplifiers to suit every guitarist's style, whether you're looking for a budget bass unit to jam with in your garage or a class-leading acoustic amp to begin your gigging career.
