Buying an Amp.

I am going to buy an amp.
I'm thinking in buying a marshall.
I don't need that much of power since i'm going to use it at home. But i want a good amp. with good features and i heard the little ones are too expensive and not that good. I was thinking in speading arround 400 EURO - 600 EURO.
I would apreciate some help.

Peaver Bandit 112......

I bought this almost 2 years ago, and it's done wonders for me. Perfect for just playing at home.....but it can also give you the power you need to play a little nightclub even.

I bought it for about 600$ canadian.....so, that's maybe about 250-300 euro i guess.

Its all about how the amp sounds to you. A solid state or a tube (valve as they say in europe) is just a matter of how much you want to spend and which sound you like. Marshall makes some 2x12 combo amps solid state that would seem to be in your price range. I really dont think you could go wrong with marshall.

Marshall is a good brand.....but it's pricey. I think you'd be better off buying a Peavey, cause they have just about the same quality but are cheaper priced.

The equivalent of my Bandit 112 would probably have cost me about 800-900$ if it were a Marshall.

Consider buying an amp, a major investment. You don't want to get a piece of crap. I'd say save your money and get a good Marshall. Or a smaller one for that matter.

i went to a store. They have one marshall of 80 watts. The guy from the store explain to me that the amp. was actually a "Park" despite having the logo "marshall" written on it. The reverb wasn't working. The price was around 500 Euro.

There was a roland there around 300 Euro with a lot of effects and the sound quality sounded really good.


What happens is that i don't want to go for an amp. just becauseof the cool effects because i can get those after with a pedal.
I was looking for a a good amp. with a lot of quality and then buying a pedal. Didn't know about his "park"stuff. What do you know about this?

Anyway, the guy from the store told me that the valve amps was what made marshall so big. I don't even know if valve is the thing for me.

Help me! I'm confused!

I stand by my previous recommendation. The Bandit is 80 watts alone, and it can dish out 100 watts if hooked up to a cabinet.

Best distortion i've ever heard in person (excluding death metal concerts....i mean just myself playing on amps.) My friend has a head/cab set up that probably cost him more than 2000$ and i think my amp has a much better sound, and it cost less than 1/3 of that.

The only marshall that i found was a "PARK(Son of Marshall)" with the logo of marshall written on it.
I know it's a PARK because the salesman told me.

Anyway, i found a Peavey Envoy 110, Transtube Series.

I think i found the site that shows the amp: http://www.peavey.com/products/amps...ps/envoy110.cfm

The guy from the store told me the amp is 60 Watts but in the site says that is 40 Watts. Anyway, it looks like the one i found on the store.

What do you think?

i've got a peavey blazer 158 that cost me 165 €... i'm pretty contempt with it, nice distortion and i guess it could be pretty loud...never got a chance to test it due to our neighbours :l
but this may be not appropriate to you, cause it's kinda small
