Valve amps. Tube amps. Same thing. It just depends where you reside mostly. Me, I use both terms. It's as close to bilingual as I get. For today's article however I'll try and stick with the term valve. Why? Well the manufacturer of the amplifier I'm craving this week is The Valve Amplification. I imagine they like to use valves in their amplifiers. Especially the 105 Bimbo head. That's the amp I want this week.

I recently came across Fellow Plectrums on Instagram. They had quite a few plectrum options including some black and white picks. Yes! Plectrums I could relate to. Upon checking out their profile on Instagram I noticed they were located in Australia. So am I. This made me realise that we were fellow Aussies. For that line alone I knew I had to try their plectrums.

Over the last few days I've been posting pictures and asking questions on my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr accounts. Of course they've all been guitar related questions, but they've been questions with reason. By posting these photos and asking these questions I've compiled quite the list of reasons people need multiple guitars. I now have justification for my current collection as well as future purchases. Yes! That's how I've justified it in my mind at least. If you agree, you also have the benefit of this list of reasons to refer to when justifying your next intended guitar purchase.

Last week I wrote about an amplifier that had all the bells and whistles*. I'm not really a bells or whistles kind of player really. Perhaps I should just be looking for a simple all-tube amplifier that allows me to play guitar through it. Makes sense. I'm barely a guitar player as it is.

If you've been to this website more than once and you've been coming here for a few years, then you may have seen the odd 52 guitars or 52 amplifiers article. I don't mean odd as in peculiar by the way. Although they could be. I have a bad habit of just writing the first thing that comes to mind. A bit like now really. If you have no idea what I'm talking about right now, but think you may come back again one day, then today may be your lucky day. You could suggest what the next 52 articles series is all about.
Awesome right? And confusing.
