Hi All,

I was practicing with my band last night, in preparation for our 2nd gig, when .....boom my guitar head went. It was a basic behringer vt 100 fxh (only 2 months old but I only paid £110).

The ead guitarist has a Marshall valve amp, I love the tone he gets out of it but his was near the £700 mark, I ahve been looking at an MA 50 but at £400 its abit expensive, I was wondering if tere was another guitar amp/head out there (with a valve) for around £200 - £300?

Thank for your advice guys!!

that sucks. however this is an opportunity, to get something decent, and whatever it is will be a big improvement over what you had.

i would advise not to go with marshall MA. i wouldn't buy any marshall in current production honestly. the JCM800 is awesome, the JCM900SLX is very similar to the JCM800, and a 50 watt DSL (least recommended).

laney has some potential for what you are looking for the marshall sound as well.

could you give us a clue as far as the exchange rate to USD is?

that would be helpful, so we recommend the gear in your price range. i also know marshalls go cheaper over there.

do you prefer american or british voiced amps?

If you only had it 2 months are you going to get a refund?
Think it's $300-400 for those in the US.

You could maybe get a combo in that price range too, off the top of my head (used) there are Laney LC/VC's, the Peavey Classic 30, Peavey Windsor, Peavey Valveking, the occasional Carlsbro 50, maybe the Roland Jazz Chorus if you look hard enough and Marshall DSL's (normally crop up for £350+).

Bugera is, actually, another trade name owned by Behringer, and it's made in the same Chinese plant which produced our fellow's amp who passed away in the most typical Behringer style.
I'd recomand him a Peavey ValveKing, if he's tight in budget. It's better than pretty much everything in this price range. A good one, as a second hand, shouldn't overcome 350 euros. And it would be a great improvement, after the Behringer.

A laney vc30 or a traynor ycv50b will get you a pretty good british, marshally tone. TBH the modern day Marshall's are, although good, quite overpriced.

Bugera is NOT owned by Behringer, Bugera is a solely independent company which has a deal using Behringers distribution network to ship world wide also the amps are NOT manufactured in the same factory.....

Absolutely Correct!

Same as

Hardwire is NOT owned by Harman, Hardwire is a solely independent company which has a deal using Digitechs distribution network to ship world wide also the pedals are NOT manufactured in the same factory.....

Wait a sec.... Harman?Digitech?Hardwire? each different?independent?
What if? Oh could it be? Oh no not again, my MIC keyboard is failing on me! ahhhhhhhhhh

Okay Some amp recommendations now that I've found my MIA laptop
Laney VC30/50
Jet City
Blackstar HT(hybrid tube)40
All mostly combos, unless you look hard enough on the used market then you could find a very good deal.
A used Marshall 6100 combo might be available at that price range too.

You won't get a half decent stack for with that budget. Get a good combo or save up.
