    I have a Marshall MG15CD..and I am thinking of changing it..The problem is I find the sound too screechy when i up the volume halfway..and it lacks that punch in distortion and the sound doesn't come out very clear.its like very shrilly..I connect it through my Zoom G2.
    I dont need many digital effects in the new amp-may be an OD channel and some reverb could do as G2s reverb is almost non-existent...budget arnd 10k. I play classic rock and metallica/megadeth kind of Metal.

    you should have brought a laney or stranger ..these marshal15cd's of india/china makes are troublesome ..i still have these and face similar problems as you do ..i rather out the sound to the headphones from the processor ..if its a indian make ..dont think twice of selling it to some noob ..

    I think the Laney LX35R is a step above the HCM30R right? Life_sans_death had asked a question without getting a definitive answer, about the difference between the 2. I'm looking at getting one of them too.

    How will the combo of : Guitar > Zoom G2 > Behringer studio headphones work out? anyone uses a setup similar to this?
    I usually practice alone...also cant freely use the AMP at home..

    Well you'll sound different than on stage, because the amp and cab are missing from your chain.

    Dude you talked about being onstage and i remembered my first appearance on stage in front of a maddening metal crowd..it was one of the worst performances in Indian rock history by any band..lol..but the set up was fantastic..we were to play after MYNDSNARE(arguably the best metal outfit in India) and before Demonic resurrection(uh,well..)..and we bunch of amateurs who were holding borrowed electrics and processors in hands were all set to make a big fool of ourselves! That was the time when i and my fellow band guitarist didnt knew that there is anything other than POWER chords to rock music :)
    By the way..we were called Outcry..well, atleast we made the crowd cry for sure :)

    getting back to the main topic: I dont think i will be performing live anywhere in next couple of years..i will just be practicing, alone.i need to improve on many things..so for that i guess a pair of decent headphones should be good..obviously i will also have my marshall along.

    Well, the HCM is no longer available. Get the LX 35R, has a decent reverb, and an usable distortion(noisy though).

    you get the huge ones for about 5 to 6 euros if you get it from a wholesale ..
