I was hoping to find a thread like this. But I still havn't found what I'm looking for. I've owned a few combos before, starting with a Fender Champ back in high school. I do miss my old Marshall avt150. It sounded cool to me, and had mulitiple channels and effects which was great as our band played a pretty good cross section of material. I'd like to get something sweeter though... Currently running through an avt40. Not my dream amp, but gets me by. I have much to learn, and am trying out as many as I can. Anyway, I will keep looking and my opinions open. The good thing about being broke is I won't make any rash purchases!
