But engl amps aren't cheaper in germany. Only americans pay more because the euro is stronger and they have to pay for shipping. But when you live in germany you don't have to deal with all of that. I live 15 min away form Aachen. wich is in germany. And the powerball still costs alot of money.

The cheapest but decent half stack for less than $1000 is the crate shockwave 3500HS I believe it is , it is a monster and for the money it kicks ass. But generally you get what you pay for.Either go for the crate or save up and get a better amp the first time otherwise you will wind up buying 2 or 3 rigs before you finally get the right one.

Perhaps you could find an excellent but cheap Blue Voodoo 60? Maybe you could have a go at making your own speaker cabinet?

you should ask the one with the fireball if the tubes are still the stock tubes and how much it was used, if it's ok the fireball will probably go for 600-700€

the 5150 could be a little more expensive, depends on how old it is etc.


i think both of them are great amps, the 5150 got some more power (120w instead of 60(fireball) but the difference isn't that big and 60 would probably be enough, too.
you should try both of them and choose the one you like more :>

but you're from germany, aren't you?
the only thing that's written there is what kind of tubes are in the amp, nothing about how old they are etc
