A Hybrid Guitar Amplifier combines the best features of solid state guitar amp and valve guitar amp circuit design and technology to create a very unique sound. These guitar amps became popular in the 70s and 80s and are still manufactured today. Notable models include the Fender Super Champ XD, and the Roland Bolt amplifier. Randall Amplifiers V2 and T2 use hybrid amp technology. A hybrid amplifier involves one of two combinations of tube and solid-state guitar amplification circuits. The most common design is a tube pre-amplifier stage to generate a nice overdrive tube sound that is popular in blues and rock music, and a solid state power stage.
This makes the overall guitar amplifier circuit smaller and cheaper to make than it would be if you had an all tube guitar amp of similar power output as it dispenses with the need for a large output transformer and easily achieves modern power levels. There are many styles of hybrid guitar amplifier available on the market from different suppliers, we have listed some of the best hybrid guitar amplifiers below. The key to these guitar amplifiers is the circuit design. Tube amps have a warmer natural tone, and solid state amps have a clean and more clinical tone. By using an Hybrid guitar amplifier you can get a nice warm tube sound and then boost it up to high output levels using the solid state output stage.
Hybrid guitar amplifiers are now upgraded with more modern features and it is not uncommon to see things like modelling software, USB connections and bluetooth included on the higher spec hybrid guitar amplifiers. These are modern guitar amplifiers which include classic design features combined with modern fabrication methods. Our web site features all types of guitar amplifier and if you are unsure about the differences we have written a brief explanation about each type on our Guitar Amplifiers Explained page.
