    I guess the title explains it all. What are and what situations would you use a pre-amp and power-amp in? Why not go through a normal amp head and cabs?

    My bad. I didn't see any sticky for an amp faq so i didn't think their was one.
  4. I've been saying for the last year now...people won't see Joris's faq...

    Anyways, I'll be working on an Amp Newbie Link thread soon so hang tight.
