Marshall low end amps are just ok as a practice amp. i have mg15cdr ..i personally dislike it. i just like the clean tone of it and nothing too good about it...just good for practice.
Mesa boogie is the best amp i heard from reviews.
I dont think connecting an amp to a speaker could help you a lot, if you gotta a effect, just connect it directly to the speaker. Good enough.
I choose misery.
