In the realm of music, electric instruments have a significant role to play, but there's a catch: they require amplification to do so! In fact, while performing in large spaces, even acoustic instruments need to be amplified. Additionally, amps and effects don't just have to be used with guitars and basses, nor do they have to be loud. While most amplifiers fall into one of the categories we just went through, there are a few outliers, such as keyboard and electronic drum amps, which can typically be used to magnify almost any instrument as long as you can attach a pickup or microphone.
Consider this collection of amplifier, if you're new to your instrument, as the doorway to your future sound. Once you've got your hands on your brand-new gear, your instrument will be the key that unlocks it.
