Neither. Go for a Vox Valvetronix series or a Roland Cube.
ESP H-300 (EMG81/85)
Ibanez RG570
Ashton VP30

Get the Hartke. I bought the Roland Cube 60, and then returned it because it didnt suit me. I tried the Vox Valvetronix and wasnt impressed. Then I tried the Hartke GT60C, and liked it alot more. And its very cheap. Try out the Roland Cube, Vox Valvetronix, and then the Hartke, and maybe you will see what I mean.

well, the avt is crap, and I haven't tried the hartke...

what's your budget, and what music do you play? oh, and what guitar do you have?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Most people havent tried the hartke. Its pretty impressive.


I know. I have it, and it a great amp especially for like 200-300$. Its no all tube Marshall, but it has a very nice clean sound that sounds a bit tubey, and the overdrive/distortion it has, is nice sometimes, but using pedals through it sounds great.

ummm i play hard rock metal mostly and i have a epiphone les paul custom, i think i m leaning toward the hartke because it is affordable and i can get a overdrive-distortion pedal and a wah with it

get the hartke. marshalls are excellent but they are expensive. if you just want an amp to tool around with the hartke is the one.
