Don't ge me wrong here, I love Marshall. Their valve amps have powered rock and roll for years, and metal for years after that. They are brilliant.
But to me, this doesn't seem that great. It is a transistor based practice amp, it retails for around 130 GBP, and it has built in effects. I got this as a first big amp after a 15 watt paractice amp (Fender Frontman 15G), and when I got it I was suitably impressed. Then scroll logo, the gold control panel with the none-more black construction. But when I got past this, I felt.....not dissapointed, but getting there.
This amp is plenty loud enough. It has enough gain (just). It feels fairly solid. The connections are fine. But for me it just lacked something. The tone was uninspiring, and didn't jump out as awesome. It didn't recreate the marshall tone of my heroes. It didn't have any edge.
This amp is fine for a beginner. When you can just about play something, any sound is good enough. But i bet as you get better, this amp will soon because tiresome, because it doesn't highlight your technique.
Presonally, I would buy something like a Line 6 Spider, a Roland Cube 30, and i would try the Marshall Hybrid AVT 20, to see if it fits the bill. A fine beginners amp, but not much more.

What's with the cut-and-paste of sentences over-and-over again?
