I've decided that I'm going to set half my next wage aside in order to buy me a new amp, and I say £400 in the title, but if possible I'd want to keep it around £300-£350 if I can, unless there is an amp I can justify spending the extra money on.

I am open to a combo amp, or a seperate head and amp combo, though for the money I expect a Combo amp to be the better of the two options, is that so? And I have no idea of ohmage and head powering to the cabs, so any help would be appreciated.

I saw this amp in my local Sound Control and it was priced around £370:

Ashdown Mag C410T-300

I tried it out and I did like the variety of tones I was able to get from it so I am likely to settle for this amp when I go to buy one, but if you guys have any better ideas for around the same price, let me know.

Thanks alot!

Personally I think you made a great choice in the Ashdown. That's the one I'd buy if I was looking for an amp in that price range.

I owned that amp for 18 months and I can't recommend it enough for it's price.

Although, if you have no objections to going used, better deals can always be found.

Second hand trace is good value for money.

Try and find pre-gibson trace elliot stuff though. Gibson made Traces had a carpet covering.

Like you guys said, I'm not bothered if I find something second hand whoch was in good condition, was thinking of Trace Elliott or maybe a GK if I was very lucky lol. Chances are I'll settle for the Ashdown.

And Forcemaster, is there anything you found to be bad about the amp, or did you just move it on for a bigger amp?

There's nothing bad I can say about the amp relative to it's price range, there are better amps out there of course, but they're priced accordingly so. The only reason I sold it was to help pay for my GK rig.
