Tonight I had a very small performance, 6-7 people, PLaying Buckethead's big sur moon into Joe Satriani's The Extremist, I played it perfect (the solo changed to a blues improv into the mystical potato head groove thing solo back into the extremist) anyway I played it perfect but the amp was terrible, I was as good as i could be, pedals were fine (DS-1 and BB-II both good quality pedals) but the amp buzzed, cut some sustained notes as so short you could barely hear them, didnt sustain well enough for the solo, made the solo go all loud and horrible, just all in all sounded crap.

Anyway, as you can see this is a Marshall MG100DFX, I was sort of a beginner when i got this amp so it did, but now i'm in an online band and two potential bands (one is progressing a lot more than the other) and I'm planning on getting an Epi Valve Junior and a Laney 1x12 cab by selling my shoddy MG.

That is all sorry if it was pointless I just wanted to show my hatred for this little [insert swear word]

An all tube will do you good.

You can gig with the Laney, you can't with the VJ. If you're close to having enough money for the Laney, you should hold out and get it when you can. You won't regret it.

I'm not close to the laney, and no i won't be gigging, the most i'll be doing is room practice and band practice which the amps are supplied for. So I'm fie with the VJ for now.

is the VJ suitable for the music you play, though? it's very classic rock (and not much heavier).

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.

The VJ would be fine for now, I can spruce it up with pedals, plus I'm mainly classic rock really, it only needs to get as heavy as black sabbath which wouldnt be hard and i'm perfect, I'm a very bluesy, classic influenced guy, and anything that i'd compose would be blues/classic sounding.

^ sounds good. I forgot you had some pedals already.
