Reverb recently revealed the best-selling effects pedals through its site in 2020 and has now done the same for guitar amps. Like 2019's list, it sees another very strong showing from Boss's Katana amp line but relatively older models like Yamaha's THR10 and the Orange Terror heads show their strength on the second hand market too. 

The continued popularity of home-friendly practice amps on the list isn't surprising as it's the most vibrant part of the market - especially with more players confined to their homes during this year's lockdowns – but one obvious 2020 success story is conspicuous in its absence.

The Positive Grid Spark is this year's best-selling guitar practice amp but is only currently available to buy from Positive Grid directly or via so didn't feature in Reverb's list. 

Positive Grid Spark 40: $299/£222, now $239/£177

With a complete arsenal of amp models and effects, plus access to over 10,000 tone presets, the Positive Grid Spark 40 is a versatile guitar, bass and acoustic practice amp. But, throw in the additional smart features such as Auto Chords, Smart Jam, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and you have one of the most powerful practice amps available on the planet.
