It's not easy fitting amps into neat little groups. Valve vs solid state, power levels and sound options all matter for different reasons. So we're kicking off the guitar amplification section of Ask MusicRadar with: what's the best low-powered tube amp head under £300?

What to do now

Think 'tube': your chosen head must have valves in it (it doesn't have to be all-valve - what constitutes as all-valve is another day's can of worms).
