yea imo the crate is total crap. cleans were alright, but the distortion sucked balls.

idk what kind of music you play but check out a all tube combo for the price of the randallfender pwnage

Depends on your budget and tone you want...I personally think the new hybrid amps are awesome....

I.E. Vox Valvetronix (true valve preamp and solid state control)...give you great tube tone at low volumes but some modeling and effects options.

They have it available in a Head/Cab design

I'm not big on Marshalls on digital/solid state amps at all.

Randalls are really gainy and great for newer metal/rock (Disturbed type stuff)

I've heard pretty good things about the Line 6 Spider 3, no tube but very flexible, minimizes need for additional pedals, etc...comes in head/cab format.

Are you sure you need a stack? It looks cool, but like slats said in a different thread, your penis does NOT enlarge when you get one. If you're not planning on playing large unmiced gigs, you really don't need that much power.

The Crate is garbage. I had one of those and the gain was just so bad. The Marshall MG is one of their worst series, because it's purely solid state and the gain sounds like mush. The Randall is just okay, nothing special.

I suggest if you aren't looking to spend so much buy a tube Laney half stack. They can crank pretty good.

but you're Asian. . .


and i have a half stack to compete with my bass full stack, that ocmpeted with 2 other full stacks, but now competes with the teddy bear on top of it (since i am no longer in a band)

but on topic, out of all those, the Randall will be the best amp, but like alot of the people asked, what do you play?

But.

Halfstacks give you a better sound.

at least when it's high gain.

but my penis doesn't seem to be any bigger.
