I'm thinking about getting a VINTAGE MARSHALL REVERB 12 GUITAR AMP it's from the 80's and heard it's suppose to be good.

Would anyone recommend this? It will be a practice amp as I'm a beginner.

Thanks in advance.

that would be a sweet first amp, but if you wanted more than blues/jazz/classic rock tones out of it you would need to boost it, or get a distortion pedal.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

Well a Reverb 12 is a simple solid state and not much to write home about. I'd get a Vox Valvetronix instead...

plus you might as well start with a better sounding amp than the vox. regardless of versatility.

Those solid state Marshalls aren't that amazing really. I've tried the new Voxes. They sound great overall. Since he's a beginner I doubt pedals is much of a worry...

i guess it would be a matter of which sound he likes better. i would take a road worn marshall amp over a new modeling amp any day.

Namef*g...

No but really those old Marshall amps are beginners amp in every sense of the word. Rather bland sounding too. The Vox is a far superior amp.

Agreed. The vox valvetronix is a great practice amp.
Although if the threadstarter is into metal, the Peavey Vypyr might be a better choice.
