How much does an decent marshall amp cost , is the Avt any good < its only a grand >> please help
#3
no avt, or mg. solid state, or transtube.

get a used JCM 800/900/2000
they're a lot cheaper than 1 grand used, and if you get a combo even cheaper.

AVTs are what Chuck Shuldiner from Death used.
If your looking for an old school death metal tone.
Go for it.

A JCM800 combo is more of a Marshall than an AVT/MG Stack.

actually, acdcrocks0323 has a valid point, plus he was joking, and it was funny. Your retaliation, wasn't.

any particular reason you are going for the big brand overpriced amp when you could get something just as good or better for less? Marshalls aren't the be all and end all of amps. The cheapest decent marshall is the DSL401 and even then thats only half-decent. it costs £400-£600...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

He didn't use AVTs, he used an older Marshall VS.

AVTs aren't bad sounding, they're just overpriced. They're decent solid-state practice amps for 'vintage' tones, but the stock speakers don't handle high gain well, they get farty/muddy/cruddy sounding. I changed my speaker and now my amp handles loads of distortion better. Of course, for the price you pay, you shouldn't have to spend more upgrading it to be good.

TS buy an MG halfstack. ITLL MELT UR FACE WITH BR000000TALZ.
She's right. The crushing tone will literally kill everyone in a 2 mile radius. The overdrive is that crushing.

+1. An MG halfstack will literally make kittens explode. I kid you not.

Besides, those valve amps only have like 30 watts! The MG Has 100! 100!!!!!!

Wasting your time he wants a NEW half stack it has to be a marshall but he doesnt want to pay alot. Which means MG. The choices at least on MF are MG for 600, AVT for 1100, or the 1959 which is no longer available. Everything else was more than 2 grand. So sounds like another MG and hey there must be a reason its the best seller. I know sarcasm doesnt work so well on the internet.

^ Well, who doesn't want a new half stack? It doesn't happen like that though.

the hardest decision is whether to go for the MG 250 combo for the crushing power of it, or stick with the halfstack cuz a real marshall halfstack is like the ultimate amp

whoever said about tube amps having less power is right.

c'mon, 100watts of marshall power will destroy any puny 30W combo \m/
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.
