Sorry , you must be a rich bitch to play like the big boys . Have fun with your combo thingies though .
Oh I will, it's not a problem for me to use mediocre gear since I can actually play and spend more time doing that rather then loading up on tons of expensive gear that the "big boys" use so I can look like I am good instead of being good

Yup, in most guitar amps, the preamp is the part with the gain and EQ that shapes the sound. After your guitar signal goes into and out of the preamp, it hits the power amp which is the part that makes it loud. Like, you could take a mesa preamp and then run it into a marshall power amp to get a specific sound.
When you hear about pre amp distortion vs. power amp distortion and yadda yadda, it's about getting gain from the gain knob vs. distortion that's being created in the power amp by pushing it hard(cranking the volume).
Some amps have power sections that are meant to do that and other amps have lots of available pre-amp gain and a really clean power section that doesn't distort.
