Look to the stars for guitar equipment

Aspiring musicians should look to see what type of musical instruments their heroes use.

Aspiring guitarists should look to stars they admire for inspiration about what musical equipment to buy.

John Callaghan, editor of Guitar & Bass Magazine, said there were websites out there that would help wannabe guitar players with advice - and on a budget.

"There are online guides or you can find out from various forums and fan sites what people are using," he said.

"It's not always as high-end as you think, or as big as you think. Some people argue that if you just get a really good VOX AC30, Fender Twin or Marshall head [you'll have all you need]."

Mr Callaghan went on to say that a recent trend was for guitar amp heads "like Orange Tiny Terror".

They've become [popular] – it used to be that if you wanted a cabinet and a head you needed soundproofing or very understanding parents, but now [not so much]," he noted.

"It's the kind of thing you can take down to the studio, plug into the cabinets down there and have the basis for a really good sound."

Mr Callaghan concluded that technology had helped make this possible.
