A head style guitar amplifier includes the power amplifier within a cabinet without a speaker. The amplifiers are powered by valves (or Tubes in the USA). Valve guitar amplifiers have a unique tone quality and many of the current models are based on classic designs upgraded with modern fabrication methods. When using this style of amplifier a speaker cabinet will be required. Valves or vacuum tubes dominant  in most instrument amplifier applications until the 1970s, when solid-state semiconductors (transistors) started taking over.

Valve guitar amplifier enthusiasts believe that tube amps produce a “warmer” sound and a more natural “overdrive” sound. You will often hear guitar players talking about tone and this refers mainly to the sound from a valve guitar amplifier. While valve or tube technology is, in many ways, outdated, tube guitar amplifiers remain popular since many guitarists prefer their sound.
