There's a great mix of products on this page, with both valve combos and solid-state combos featured. Valve amps (sometimes referred to as 'tube amplifiers') are analogue and preferred by players after a more organic, hard-hitting sound that blossoms when turned up loud. They are therefore perfect for gigging with! Solid-state amps (sometimes referred to as 'digital amplifiers') are generally more reliable, and often more versatile than valve amps too — with many boasting multiple amp sounds and even built-in effects. They also sound good at lower volumes, so if you're looking for a combo amp under £500 that's good for both the home and the stage — this may be a more flexible choice.

The likes of Fender, Marshall and Vox offer both valve and solid-state amps, with the latter even specialising in unique hybrid guitar amps. Boss and Line 6 are regarded as the kings of digital, with their amps acclaimed for their flexibility and tube-like sonics. Trust us, they're brilliant bang for the buck!
