hey guyz..i need info on marshall amps
im planin to buy one
i wont recommed that you go with Marshall's .
I hate Marshall's they've got a very poor quality of distortion.
On the other hand a Roland is much much better .
Let us know your budget .
is marshall bad ?supposed to be good for stage performance.
I dont deny that higher end Marshalls are amazing like the JCM800
But the one's you get in India arent worth it ( the 10cd , 15 , 30 etc )
Believe me but I have checked out almost all the AMP's that are available in Delhi ( marshalls, Laney , Randall ,Peavey , Boss ) and all of them are nothing compared to a Roland . The distortion is by FAR superior than any Marshall and even my AMT Metalizer .
The clean tone is real nice for blues, classical etc.
thanx for the replies dudez
my budget is 8 thousand pakistani rupees
Get yourself a Marshall MG series 15CD or 30CD. Pretty decent sounding and also has a nice overdrive. Not great for Metal. But has a nice overdrive. If you know to set it, you can get a killer tone with it's overdrive. Yesterday I was experimenting with a Fender Strat through this Marshall MG15CD and I could even get some killer Tweed Sounds. Even the other things I tried gave me very nice results. The EQ is really good.
Hey Ronnie..hows the Rondall 2x12 holding up?
That's a killer. You need to start a fan club and a separate fan appreciation forum for that :
I know one Randall amp.
Who needs a Randall when you have a Rondall.
Did you notice. Randall shamelessly copied the name Rondall and using Rondall's reputation to sell their Randall amps :beer:
how about a Besa/Moogie?
or a Boogieman amp?
Besa Moogie kicks ass. Boogieman kicks ass too. Mesa Boogies is shameless copy and it sucks big time. I heard that only very low budget newbies play the Mesa Boogies. Otherwise they'd always prefer a Besa Moogie.
So Besa Moogie is better or Boogieman.
Or is it Rondall?
Hey Big Evil, since all the amps we are talking about you wont get:
Marshall is decent.
Roland might be good, but then it is expensive.
+ I like the solid state Marshall's clean sound.
and I use processor for overdrive/distortion.
Solid state Marshall's (The MGxxCDx series are all solid state amps) overdrive sounds fine at very low gain settings.
which amp has the best distortion and reverb
There's no point recommending a $10,000 Dumble Overdrive Special.
for distortion its definately a ROLAND !!
Probably a Marshall or Laney for Reverb
For a Clean Amp it's Rondall :nw:
For dirty sounds it shall be Besa/Moogie.
Still Confused ........:S
go and buy a Marshall.
It works good for clean sound. and for distortion or overdrive you buy a processor or stomp-box.
+ It is cheap
