    Yeah..enlighten me a bit on the difference b/w these two??? :help:

    is there a single speaker like box which has a built in amplifier and very portable+ez2carry in nature? like..i mean just like a box which u carry anywhere along wid ur guitar and just connect thru pickup...

    i've been playing a standard accoustic (givson125) so my knowledge is pretty less about such gadgets :grin:

    what u are talkin abt is
    a combo amp which has an amp head as well as a speaker.this will be sufficient for u..buy a 20 watt combo amp.and u will be fine.

    amp is a device which "amplifies" sound and a suitable speaker with appropriate watt handling capacity is connected to it.

    erm...call it a combo amp.hehe..

    strangers are loud.its decent.i have 2 combo amps.a kustom 20 watt..and a uk marshall g10 mk2..10 watts.

    the kustom 20 watts is decent..strangers are not bad either.
    they are more or less of the same quality.

    youre talking about the stranger NS-30. that is more suited to vocal amplification. you need a stranger Cube-20 or Cube-40 tailormade for guitar.
    check out www.strangeraudio.org for these products.

    I think the Marshall MG series is the best value for money.
    They give a wide variety of sounds/tones without asking you to shell out huge amount of money.

    The Clean tone from Marshall is hundred times better than Stranger; and the overdrive is also very good rendition of the classic Marshall overdrive sound one would get from 80s Marshall - infact much better than what many Processors offer

    I agree with Jekyll on this. Marshall MG series is way beter than Stranger. At the same time Stranger isint that bad.
    But I have never tried making one myself.
