So, what are the advantages of a stack amplifier? For starters, all the legwork is already done for you. You won't have to spend hours agonizing over which head to pair with which cabinet: instead, you've got a buffet of perfect matches already laid out for you to choose from. That makes the decision process as easy as picking out a combo amp, but these full and half stacks completely blow their all-in-one cousins out of the water when it comes to power.
Just like any other amplifiers, you'll have your choice of tube or solid-state here. On top of that, there are a few stack amplifiers that really stand out from the ordinary. Take the Marshall Custom Tattoo series, for example. Featuring the work of legendary tattoo artists like Phil Kyle and Tutti Serra, these stacks look as incredible as they sound. They're the perfect way to turn your stage presence up to 11. A few other great examples of outstanding stacks are the EVH 5150, based on the sound and specs of Eddie Van Halen, and the Ibanez TSA series, which has the historic Tube Screamer circuit built right into the front end.
Whether you like to play face-melting riffs or jangly classic rock, there's a stack amp here for you. Think of these stacks like all-in-one amplifier kits that can take you from scratch to venue-shaking power in one step, without having to worry about picking and choosing piece by piece.
