    Hi everyone... I need to get my first amp. I play a gb&a guitar that i bought for rs 5500.... I'll be going to kozhikode(its in kerala) to get the amp on monday, so I need replies ASAP from you guys..

    My budget is anything < rs 3500 /-. Let me know guys the BEST amp upto 3.5K that I can get with the best tone quality...

    Thanks a lot...

    umm.......i think you should get the Laney LX12 (2850 + shipping to wherever u are) from bajaao.com. They currently dont have it but i they are getting it in the first week of january. I think that is an amp worth waiting for. If u dont want to wait i guess a Marshall 10CD wont kill anyone.

    Thanks for the reply man...

    My dad ain't too keen on buying online, and I really can't wait, lol, so I might go for the Marshall.......10 watts is good enough for the bedroom right?

    any other suggestions, please...

    @laneymaney: ummm a 20 watt stranger better then a 10 watt marshal ?
    Its like saying a Maruti 800 is better then a, say Toyota Camry.

    @getimmersed: Dude dont go after the name laney amps are quite good you know, and buying at bajaao isnt buying online per se....u have to contact them before placing an order with them to get the updated price and they ship it off.Its quite reliable i must add

    srry devil...ur right...i did love the 2 years i had with my marshall..but as soon as i got my laney 50w , that love dissolved.. :p . Marshall is a darn good start off amp..so i take back my statement

    yea......strangers do suck big time.....Marshall 10CD is a good choice dude...but Laney LX12 would be better (muhahahhahahaha...im so biased...lol)...seriously...i THINK (not sure) that u can get better cleans on the laney...

    thanks everyone!!!
    i kinda have my mind set on the Marshall... just wonderin if the store will have it? cos there are no stores nearby... so i will definitely be buying me regardless of if i really like the amp or not...

    anyway thanks again...

    pray for me, i will post about the amp after i get it here!!
