My Marshall MG50 died on me not too long ago... I know, it's a crappy amp and all, but I make it sound good with my pedals! That's besides the point though.
All I have to play through now is my crappy (but not horrible) beginner First Act starter amp. I mean, with my pedals it's alright, but I still would rather another amp.
And it really sucks, cause I get my car soon (Finally!) so my parents aren't willing to shell out another $500 for a new amp... and I understand that. I have to wait until Christmas, or buy one myself, or send it in to the Marshall repair shop or whatever it is. But I have to find my warranty...
Oh well, i'll probably upgrade to a half stack when I get the money :]
Line 6 Spider VI 75.... Perfect for you. 300.00. I'm a dealer in these, and I told Marshall no thanks a few years ago, when they came to me, since they'd be collecting dust next to the Line 6's that kept selling within days.
