The 10 Best Guitar Amplifier Cabinets
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in December of 2018. While the days of huge stacks are (mostly) long gone, it's still common practice to route a guitar through an amplifier then to a standalone set of speakers. This gives an artist complete control over the sound as it enters the mix, ensuring that their creative expression comes out exactly as desired. Whatever volume level you're after, the right cabinet will let you be heard, loud and clear. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

How good your guitar sounds is incredibly dependent on the quality of your cabinet. Products from Fender and Marshall are especially popular among rock groups, partially because their mid-range lends itself well to intense soloing. The Eden is great for a variety of styles, and promises to really pump up the volume, should you so desire. It's hard to go wrong with the Bugera, which is surprisingly light, especially in light of its resilience and respectably high max volume. The Laney looks every bit as good as it sounds, and if you can afford the premium price, the Vox is simply one of richest and loudest you'll find. Modern guitarists who rely heavily on digital audio manipulation may just love the HeadRush, which affords the lead player an exceptionally clean monitor and mix output.
