    Dear Romancerig, Why are you so against zoom g1x?

    probably because it is crappy?

    Vicks, forget about Stranger + Zoom G1 option for now.

    For that ~8K amount - buy a better processor like Floor POD or something.
    And you can use your comp speaker for home practice - and while practicing with a band - use the keyboard or bass player's amp.

    For live - you can go directly online to PA system.

    WTF do you want a freaking Stranger 80 for??
    A 30W with 10" speaker is good enough to jam, and I don't suppose you plan to play bar gigs with your own amp since the tone is to die for.

    Dump the Stranger80. Do what alpha1 says and get a processor which has good amp modeling. If you want an amp that badly buy a 30W.

    @ thehundredthone:
    How about going for g2.1u? Pls suggest some other options as well. I have come to know that Marshalls sound disgusting with processors. Can you also put some light on floor PODs that alpha1 has mentioned.

    The g2.1u is decent, it's amp modeling is decent, however the interface is a little spartan. Just 2 digits on the display, not very helpful. The Floor POD is a Line 6 product, their amp modeling is supposed to be good.

    Visit harmony-central.com for some reviews.

    @ thehundredthone:
    So, should I consider g2.1u the best option? What about amp?

    Atleast get a g2.1u or rp70.
