ok i have a fender fm212r and my friend has a marshall avt100. which amp would be the better amp to keep? seriously though, i would appreciate it if you'd give me some advice. they're both 100 watts, though mine is louder probably because it has two speakers. the fender is a solid state, the marshall is a hybrid i believe.

here are the pictures if it helps

The fender is a very straightfoward amp, clean, SS cruch/od and SS distortion. The fender is a gig worthy amp, i've played through it at music stores. I prefer it over crate any day. THe distortion is a little fuzzy, and it gets a lot of static when you crank the gain up. Decent amp, i dunno about the marshall though.

Check out a Fender Blues Junior or Peavey Valveking. Both are all tube amps on a budget.

Erm, decide for yourself, you have access to them both, listen to what they sound like etc and think which one do you prefer.

I don't like either of them personally.

the marshall. definately. i dont even know if the fender is louder, although it has more speakers. the marshall avt amps are extremely loud. i used to have an avt 20 and it was loud enough to play gigs with. i would definately go with the marshall. it has much better sound and is better quality and may be louder.

Are you serious?

These "gigs", let me see, in an old peoples home or your garden shed or maybe your own ass?

100watts of valve

gennerally speaking Fender SS amps are superior to Marshall SS (or hybrid) amps, to anyways. Id keep the fender, unless you really hate it, then trade it for a tube amp or something.
