    is there a difference between an amp and a preamp
    is a preamp just a longer name to make you sound more intelligent?

    amp is the device that let your electric instrument be heard. an amp is made by a preamp, a power amp and a speaker. there are different kind of amps:
    combo everything together in a portable box


    the amp (preamp+poweramp) only, called head


    speaker cabinets only


    you can have even the preamp only


    and the poweramp only


    but next time be sure to post in the right forum this one is for basses and your thread belongs to amps.
