I am a Intermediate~Semi-Advanced player
I need this amp for home practice
Price REALLY matters!
Please Do not suggest any other amps because I cant find any of those.
I have 3 options

1 - Marshall TSL-602 (1500 $ ) Specifications
2 - Line 6 Flextone III (1200 $ )
3 - Marshall AVT150X (790 $ ) Specifications


TSL-602 : JCM2000 Family, All Valve, UG overall rating : 8.4

FlextoneIII : Solid State, I don't like it, just wanted to see what you think about it.

AVT150X : Hybrid, UG overall rating : 8.9

TSL-602 is all valve but its expensive, I can barely afford the money but if its really better than the avt then I will do anything to buy it.
* Reminder : Its a practice amp, BE HONEST and REALISTIC !
Guitar : Cort X-TH ( EMG 81-85 )
Amp : Marshall TSL-602
Effects : Boss MT-2, Boss NS-2

Its better than the AVT by light years. Having owned a ATV 150 for a while i realized i was rip off for what i was getting.

The flextone is a tough competitor to the tsl imo.

what genres do you play?

I would look at Harmony Central Reviews too. They usually have more reviews, not necessarily better reviews, but just a larger database.

Then both amps are good for those. If you can try them out, try them. But have their draw backs and their pros.

The Flextone is good for all round use in the home but doesn't have the ultimate tone of a valve amp. The Marshall is good but why go that big? A DSL401 is just as good, if not better and is more practical for home use as well as being powerful enough to gig with.

have you looked into the used market? I've seen all of those amps go for much lower prices 2nd hand in good shape... could save yourself a few bones.

if you want a PRACTICE amp get a roland cube 30x cause why the heck do you need 150 watts of RMS power in your bedroom?

I got a black Les Paul, and this Texan told me it wasn't as good as other color guitars becuse it was a 'nigger.'

Out of them three, Line 6 Flextone III.

Why?
Because if it's mainly a practice amp, the TSL and AVT is overkill IMO.

The Flextone sounds nice at all volumes, and is gigable when the times comes - and will sounds very nice.

If you want a nice high gain tone at a low volume, the TSL/AVT will NOT deliver as well as the Flextone.

Get the Flex. It is a very good amp - especially for your situation.

You want a TSL602 for a practice amp? Go with lower wattage, dude, you don't need that much for a bedroom unless you plan on demolishing your house.

NOT THE AVT!!

Piece of ****..

TSL 602 is really good - but probs too loud for home practice...601 maybe?
40w tube IS really loud - cranked it could probs give you hearing damage...

Flextone would suit you well - they sound good, can do everything well and being SS sound good at low(er) volumes!

Both Marshalls are definately no home practice amps. I have no idea about the flextone, but if you want to play at home, stay away from both Marshalls. If you want a good tube sound out of them, you have to crank them and that will be ways to loud for home practicing. Think about a Vox Valvetronik, a Roland Cube or one of the available 5W Tube amps.
