Hey,

I'm buying an electric guitar, and I was just wondering what's the best amp (for my price range. (I'm willing to spend up to 250€, but less if possible)

I've heard that Marshall are a good make? any suggestions and links if possible, cheers,

Kev

at that price - don't look to much at brand names - a cheap brand name amp won't necessarily be better than a cheaper un-named brand. At 250 you'd have to get a marshall mg - not a good route to go down.

what sort of music do you play? do you play live much?
These are good all rounders at their price:

I'm only a beginner, and I dont play live at all (yet), I dont think I'll be needing more than 30w, are Marshall not good amps?

CHEAP marshalls are not good amps, is the general consensus of UG. i would have to agree with them, MG's sound horrible now that i have my fender tube amp.

at that price range dont bother looking at names or brands, just get something to practice with. you dont need much. then once you get better save up for something good, like a JCM 800 half stack or something :P
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Marshall is good, but the MG series isn't.

I'd say maybe a Roland Cube or a Peavey Vypyr. Those would suit you well, but I like the Roland Cube a lot better.

Yes it is, but you will have to purchase a speaker cabinet for it also.

I'm trying to chose between the Peavey Vypyr 30 and the Vox 30,

which one is better in your opinion?

I prefer the Vypyr. I think it sounds more realistic over the Vox
