I need to know what a preamp is

a preamp is anything that changes the signal before it is amplified by a poweramp. hence, preamp. It can be the equalizer on the amp, the gain, chorus, even you pedals may count as preamps. anything that modifies the tone.

What a preamp really does is after the modifying of tone and everything, it makes your signal a bit louder, to line level, and then the poweramp takes over.
