    here's a noob question :)

    what is the difference between a pre-amp, power amp and a head? And do you need a power amp with a pre-amp?

    Tell ya this much: 99% of "noob" questions can be answered by doing a little reading in the forum. I don't know, there might even be a FAQ.

    modularity (just change your preamp for a new tone) and you can usually get more watts per dollar with a pre/poweramp setup...
