Okay, so i'm not too bad on guitar (going for Grade 5 soon), but i suck at set-ups, equipment, amps, pedals etc.

WTF is the difference between one of them head unit things that sits on top of an amp and the amp itself? Why the need for both? I don't gettit.

Thanks in advance for the help (or lack of it )

The head unit connects to the cab(the speaker)

Its so you can combine a different cab and a different head unit if you want. They are always more expensive since the head units are very good, a decent head unit is $1000.

So basically if you wanted better settings options yet with different amplifications you'd do that?

if you have a combo amp, its like a smaller version of a cab and a head. it's like taking a bunch of pedals and effects and combining them into one package. they're easy to use and less to carry around. you don't see too many bands that play with combo amps.

Head:


In order to get sound from a head alone, you need a cabinet (which can come in various speaker combinations, but I'm going to post a 4x12 to keep it simple:

This combination is commonly known as a half stack.

You can plug two cabinets into a head simultaneously, like so:

This combination is commonly known as a full stack or even simpler, a stack.

A combo basically is a head and cabinet in one, they NORMALLY come in either 1x12 or 2x12 form:


That's pretty much it for basic knowledge
