If I had a choice between playing on a Marshal MG and being dead, I'd probably choose being dead. Don't buy a Marshall unless its a tube amp. And if you already have a pod and like the way it sounds, just get the cheapest amp you can find around 100 Watts. Preferably with a good clean channel to run your pedal into. You should be able to find something decent at that price range.

If you don't already own a pod you could probably save the money and do better.

A used Marshall DSL40c? That's the cheapest entry into the Marshall tube category. Not a bad amp either.

A Laney VC50 would be a good alternative. I'm selling one but it might be hard to ship it to Pakistan .

If you're going for the pod, have you thought about getting a power amp + cab?

If you're definitely getting a Pod HD, maybe a Tech 21 Power Engine.

Wait...you listed just cabinets. Are you only wanting a cabinet, or do you want a new amp?

Guitar Center has used VK112's well within your price range.

They ship to Pakistan.

Where's the problem?

My bad, I seem to recall you mentioned that in an earlier thread. Did you actually talk to them, or is this just hearsay?

The Bugera? It's a nice amp. At least, I like it. Played a Gibson SG through it, sounded nice.
