When guitarists in the early '60s started experimenting with distortion, it took rock music to a whole new level. The earliest attempts were crude, with some guitarists even slitting their amp speakers to get a 'fuzzy' sound. But amplifier makers eventually figured out how 'overdrive' a main amp with a hot signal from a preamp to bring true distortion to the world of rock.
