    get to the point and buy a stranger. no other choice as you don't want roland/marshall/line6/laney.

    BE3/floodkat amps.


    UltraEdit - bcrich, y'know, there's always Cornford, Mesa Boogie, Bogner, or heck, Seymour Duncan too. I'm buying an amp, I don't want a Poland, Mash all, Line 666 or Laney maney either.

    And if you really don't care, then why not buy my amp. 2k, treat your friends with the 70k paisas you save.

    Btw, 700k paisa = Rs.7000. Just saying.

    When you're asking a question, the objective should be to transfer as much information as possible to the other party. You are not chatting here, brevity is not the soul of this conversation. Be clear. Have atleast that much commitment to type a few vowels, dammit. I couldn't even read what you'd written after a sentence or so.

    EDIT: "cnrnd" with all due respect what the **** does that even mean. You not only got rid of the vowels, you've even dug into the consonants. Is it cornered? Is it concerned? Is it cunt-rand? What is it? Type like this and people will start with a preconception of "this guy is a moron".

    You know, everyone should get what you're saying brother. this may help you more in your case.

    And by the way, he wants a very low priced amp of about 2-4k. He may not get something good but the thing is, he doesn't want to. So, stranger will be good for him.

    cmon guys...

    might as well start a literary society here....but point taken,will take care in the future

    (and yes that was concerned (guitar doctor)

    btw apart from reviewing my writing skills nobody gave me a proper answer - i never said i dont want a marshal or something with a better sound its just that i do not have that kind of money to spare (survive on pocket money brother) ....

    @ultrabot90 - i do care but its bout money here and no offence but i dont find a two year old marshal at 2k tempting...

    If you're in school, buy the cheapest, crappiest amp you can. Save some of that 2.7k budget even, if possible. Then later when your parents are happy that you've gotten into college and your relatives give you money you can (if you're still interested) buy a more decent amplifier.

    There's nothing so 'two year old' about it. It's an amp, not a car, and a practice amp at that. I'm still using it, no difference in it since when I bought it, in neither it's appearance or sound... I'm struggling to see the point.

    Nvm, I'd rather sell it after I sell the processor, else I'd have nothing to practice with (though I can use headphones through the proc, but I hate that. Unwieldy.). Ciao.

    you don't know much about amps then. a used cheapshit marshall, 2 or 20 years old, is still definitely better than a stranger with the new amp smell or the equally digusting beta aivin.

    thanks folks

    @flood - will second that, never said I was An Authority on amps brother

    ( Y the hell would I seek help in the first place? )

    @ultrabot90 – dude forgive me if I am being a little reserved here…
    I have no doubts about your amp and its state and take your word for it but I have seen marshal amps go bad too

    (Besides I just got rid o a shitty amp so just being safe this time)

    So if you could upload a test video that’ll really help…I will be more than happy to buy it

    Ps: - I use headphones with my processor too (for now) but that barely does it...

    @ Thehundredthone – I believe you missed The --- No “Does not matter buy anything its all crap" suggestions plz --- part don’t blame you though…besides no I am not in school
    (That’s actually against me)…And I kind of get your idea brother; even agree to a certain extent….

    That settles it; I guess I figured what to do...

    @everybody – thanks guys and just to be clear I didn’t mean to offend anybody if somehow I unknowingly ended up doing…
