Avoid it. Theres better amps out there for the same money. Look into Crates or Vox.

i agree truly not value for money wish i knew a bit more before i handed over my dollars sad.gif read the words marshall and thought got to have one of those then a couple of weeks later had a dose of buyers remorse mad.gif
pretty crappy sounding overdrive i ended up buying a zoom g2 effects pedal two weeks later because of the lame sound
warm regards symon

I would not recommend, for the price.. its not too bad but i must agree with my fellows.. there are much better amps out there, I also do not recommend Crate but Peavey, Line 6, Laney are all good companies which make amps for the same amount. I would definatly jump on recommending peavey. They have great Tone and great built in distortion. I was playing on a little 30Watt the other day and really liked it. I also have a small Line 6 Spider II 30Watt. Its a great little practice amp with good built in effects and overdrive/ 4 different types of distortion. Do not jump for Marshall because of its good name. Really after the Mid80's Marshall amps went downhill sad.gif

+1 on all of the "avoid"

Laney LC15R, tubeamp, maybe could be something. if you need to play with earplugs, connect a CD or something I'm sure people here can recommend something.

You should be able to find a Peavey Bandit for about the same price, I'd also look into the Peavey Valveking Royal 8, it's a small 5 watt tube amp which should be perfect for playing at home.
