Definition for: Amplifier

An electronic device designed to project the sound produced by an electric guitar. Amplifiers can be used to add distortion or other effects to the guitar and adjust the prevalent tones it produces. They are usually solid state (which use semiconductors), but many musicians prefer the warmer tone of tube amplifiers. This has led to hybrid amplifiers, which combine the two technologies.
