dont get any marshall at that low price....peavey vypyr or roland cube. one of the 15w ones. no pedals until you get a better amp.

Get a Roland Cube 15 instead. Also Marshall don't make Solid State 20 watts(I think, correct me if I'm wrong).

Also, you have to tell us the budget for the pedal and the amp, we can only help you if we know how much money you are willing to spend.

Don't jump on the bandwagon, Line 6 Spider III's Aren't that bad!

Since you don't seem like you have a set direction of what you want, I would recommend a low-price, high-quality modeling amp like the Roland Cube or Peavey Vypyr. These will allow you to sample a wide variety of effects and tones.

Don't worry so much about wattage. Don't go out and buy a 150w amp just because it's high power. You don't need all that. Choose a few amps in your price range (what is your price range, btw), and try them out at Guitar Center. People usually try to steer you away from Marshall MGs or Line 6 Spiders, but, remember, tone is subjective. Find what you like.

Vox DA 20. the 2x8 stereo setup really set it apart from other low cost SS amps.

My vote is for the Peavey Vypyr as well.. It will give you a broad spectrum of effects and different amp voicings to toy with so you can get a feel for what you want to look out for in the future.

I started out with a multi-effect processor and ss amp and it helped a bit in focusing in on what I wanted in an amp and pedals later on.
