hey

i went to the store to check some amps and played some time in this marshall and it sounded good to me, with the 4 built-in effects and all, had a nice crunch and overdrive.

anyone had it or knows if its worth? it was about R$ 900 (brazillian money)
if so, any other suggestions? im pretty much playing punk rock and metal, so i kinda want both nice clean and heavy overdrive...

thanks

Well, that's why I asked. MG30s don't cost anywhere near that much in the US, so I was hoping to get an idea of what other amps were in that price range where you are. If you're not sure, you could start looking for things like a Valveking or a Jet City or an Egnater.

Budget? - 600 dollars, tops

Genres? - mostly punk and metal

New or Used? - could be used, but i prefer new

Home or Gig? - almost all the time home, but eventually with friends

Closest City? - lol, porto alegre, brazil.

Current Gear? - A ****ING SHELDON GT150 - talk about being rad

thanks

is it wrong to push threads here?

You mean bump? Depends. I can't really help you farther than what I said. Though I know the Peavey Vypyr, Roland Cube xl series, and Blackstar are all popular amps. Everyone will suggest a 6505, but I hate that piece of shit.

It varies from forum to forum. If it's a busy forum such as GG&A I usually wait 'till my post hits third page to bump it. If it's a forum like Riffs and Recordings which doesn't get much traffic nowadays second page bumping is fine.

What other amps are in the store? Brands and general pricing.

well, from what i remember there are a few fenders in there, but the variety wasnt great. i think it would be better if you guys gave me a few suggestions of amps from known brands, because since im in brazil some of the amps might not be sold here.

You might have luck scoring a Peavey of some sort. A 6505+ 112 would fit the bill. Or you could go for a Vyper Tube if you want more versatility.

6505 has more gain than anyone would ever sanely need. The Vyper tube has plenty of gain and od on tap.

I own an MG30 without effects, and while I probably wouldn't buy one because of the knowledge I've picked up over the years, I had no issues with it and it was fine for bedroom use.

That Peavy has a good overdrive?

I still don't recommend the 6505. But the Vypyr Tube is great sounding from what I've heard.
