Every month, MusicRadar’s industry-leading sister magazines - Guitarist, Computer Music, Total Guitar, Rhythm and Future Music - publish the best independent, in-depth music-making gear reviews.
Fresh from collating the best guitar gear put through its paces by Guitarist and Total Guitar's test teams in March 2010, it's time to zoom in and focus on amplifiers.
There have been some seriously good valve amps in the pages of Guitarist and Total Guitar in recent months. We've chosen seven killer tube combos for your perusal here, from the cost-conscious to wallet-busting once-in-a-lifetime boutique models. One thing they have in common is that they've all scooped Guitarist Gold, Guitarist Choice or Total Guitar Best Buy awards.
If you like what you see, be sure to click through and read each product’s full review and check out the accompanying video and audio demos. First up: Mesa/Boogie's amazing Mark V combo:
"The ultimate compact yet powerful do-it-all amp."
