Hi
Im trying to decide what amp to get. I have decided on a single channel master volume head with a built in boost but I don't know which one to get. Marshall or Laney???

Thanks

If you're more rock orientated, then the Marshall will do. If you're more into the metal music, go with the Laney GH50L.

Paul Gilbert for example, used to use the GH100L (same as the GH50 but with 100w) and switched to the Vintage Modern because of Marshall's bribes basically...

They can both do high-gain well.

But that said, I would take the GH, when I tried the Vintage Modern it sounded horribly.... out of place. Either too muddy or too thin, hard to dial in, neither vintage nor modern, and as all Marshalls are, overpriced.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

IMO, the GH slaughters the vintage modern.

It does everything the VM does better, and for a lower cost.
New tracks on my profile! Please check them out and see what you think!

I got to play through one at a jam night the other day and it kicks the **** out of the vintage modern

You just sasved me a lot of time! That's what I though too! It's close to impossible to get a perfect tone.

And as you said, neither vintage nor modern. It either hasn't got enough gain for rock or too much for classic rock, but not enough for metal, so really it's not "good" for anything. There are so many amps in the same pricerange that does minced meat of the VM.

So Laney.
