    gain is like distortion if you have a high gain amp then it should say somewhere on it gain or distortion if you have a vintage amp then its just a clean sound with no distortion…

    “High Gain” just means that it’s loud, 100 watts or more. For most applications a “high gain” amp is overkill (and you’re asking for ear damage). Vintage amps tend to be lower in wattage and slightly lower in volume, but they make up for it by having better tone. Many “high gain” amps are solid state, as well, such as the Randalls used by Dimebag. Vintage amps tend to be tube powered, and vintage tube amps are the surest way to reproduce the classic rock guitar sounds.
