It depends what sound you want, if its a solidstate you should probably get a fender or something else, but if its a valvestate i would recomend a marshall dsl

you know marshall actually do more solid-state amps than fender... plus both of em only do them for their budget range amps. i say if you've got a good amount of money to spend get a marshall (Do not get an Mg series) but if your tight on cash get something like a fender hot rod deluxe as they're inexpensive n sound awesome!

really if you don't want a valve amp...don't go to the two biggest names in valve amps.
Fender American Deluxe Ash Stratocaster (2000)
Fender Classic Player 60's Stratocaster
Marshall JCM900 100w head & 4x12 cab

Korg DT-10 Tuner; Boss DD-3 Digital Delay; Jim Dunlop JH-1B Wah; Boss RT-20 Rotary Ensemble; MXR EVH Phase 90.

Go Fender Definatly. I got both a 30watt marshall and a 65 watt Fender. If you want a great blues tone, go fender, definatly.

Vox or Cube. Theyre really the only SS amps worth getting (unless you spend a TON of a high end one).
#25
you looking at tube or solid state? My choice is Fender, they're super clean and it's easier to dirty-up clean that it is to clean up dirty. The Hot Rod/Blues - Deville/Deluxe line would be a great choice, depending upon your budget. If you have a lot to spend, you might check out a Super or Twin Reverb, ore if you just gotta have a stack, mayber the Supersonic (I've not yet tried this one).
#26
It depends entirely on your budget. If you've only got ~$350 to spend and are trying to decide between a Fender Frontman and a Marshall MG, I'd have to say go for the MG (the lesser of the two evils and decent for practicing.)

However, if you've got more like $1000 to spend and are going for a tube amp, all I can suggest is that you try out a bunch from both brands and see what works best for you. For metal you'll most likely want a Marshall, but for the blues, you can't really beat Fender. So you'll really have to play a bunch of amps to find one that can get all the sounds you want.
My Gear:

Washburn WI14 Electric
Washburn D10s Acoustic
Marshall MG100HDFXR Special Edition
Marshall MG412AR Special Edition

Depends on your budget. Don't limit yourself to only two brands, try to have an open mind.

No offence, but what you have, is a frontman, and is in no way to be associated with the quality brand of fender. Other than in name, of course.

MARSHALL. I've played through most amps on the market, and always felt like something was missing. broke down and got my marshall and I couldn't believe the difference.They're pricey but worth every Dollar.
