Digital modeling combo guitar amps have come a long way since the early days, when they were known for over-promising and under-delivering. The tones that they create today are very usable for live and recording purposes. Two advantages of digital amplifiers are their affordability and their ability to be quite compact. Modern technology has also helped by creating full range speaker systems that deliver a room-filling stereo sound from a very small package.
So, now we’ll take a look at a few of the best of the small and inexpensive digital modeling combo guitar amps. They should all be great for beginners because they won’t require too much of an up-front investment, but they will produce tones that inspire more practice. They’ll be helpful for people who don’t need too much power but also don’t want to compromise on tone.

But more importantly, it is designed so that you can have two completely different sounds going on at once. Of course, you’d probably choose two sounds that are somewhat alike, but in theory, you could have a clean Fender Twin sound and a cranked Marshall Plexi tone combined into one. The combined sounds become one named and saved preset. This is amazing. Just imagine all the possibilities.

I’ll admit that I really resisted this stuff, I really really did. In principal, it just goes against everything I believe in. But then again, when the “Frying Pan” guitar was first put out by Rickenbacker, I’m sure it was met with the same disdain. Same for the solid body electric, the Flying-V, The Explorer, the Parker Fly, etc. So, I decided to lighten up and just try the Cyber Twin SE, and as it turns out, there’s a lot to enjoy.
