I am currently using a Engl thunder 50 head and Engl 4x12 cab, and its great but i want more channels and effects i.e. reverb, delay etc. So im not buying one till like march or something until i get the money, just going a bit of research. My budget is £850 possibly £900. I was looking at these two:

Marshall TSL-100:- http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/marshall-tsl-100/278

and the

Randall V-2:- http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/73873

Any suggestions guys?

Thanks in advance

I haven't tried either amps, but i have tried the JVM, which is what i have, and thats total kickass....

either way you have to try them both out at a guitar shop WITH YOUR GUITAR preferably.

i don't likethe switchblade personally

Fender 2005 Aerodyne Strat,
Ibanez GAX 70

Hughes & Kettner Switchblade, all the way.

does look a well good amp head, and does have lots of effects so i defiantly take it into account.

When you're buying a more than just a practice/jamming quality amp I'd recommend staying away from one with internal effects. Reverb and tremolo are fine but Chorus, phaser, flanger, delays, pitch shifters etc aren't usually as nice as the discrete ones made by various companies. There more for people who can't afford to spend hundreds of dollars on an amp and on pedals too. Good quality pedals will work with any good quality amp so you can keep them forever and they're easier to control individually then presets/patches. I don't think any single manufacturer makes the best effects either and this allows you to choose the best of the best for each effect.
Moving on.....

Yh i no what you mean, thats why i was looking in to amp heads that can use midi so i can also customize my channels. Plus i didn't want a head with loads of effects maybe just a bit of reverb and one than one channel, as my engl only has is bass, middle, treble, gain.
