MARSHALL MB60? MB150?
I'm saving up for a new amp.
I played a small Marshall combo in a shop the other day, and it blew all the others away.
My GK is 70 watts but when I put it through the contour and overdrive channels (like I need for my sound), it automatically reduces the volume of the amp. It also sounds muddy as crap. I even favor the bridge pickup of my J which has a Badass II on it, and I still have to use my Digitech pedal which consumes a monstrous 6 AA batteries a month to get the right treble I need out of it!!!
I played that Marshall, and it can get as loud if not louder than my GK, even being half the wattage!!! ("45 watts" right there in bold white print under the line out jack on the back of the amp!!!) and had a no-volume-reducing "classic" (overdrive) switch, and a contour built in.
Needless to say, I was impressed. My big question is, if I'm shooting for a Marshall combo that's big, but not a wall of wattage, which should I get?
The 150-watt? The 60 watt hybrid? The 450 watt?
I don't play HUGE places. Primarily, my band plays churches, and they are sometimes pretty big, but never need cabs and head style stuff. We've survived so far with just my 70 watt GK rig, and a 15 watt Hybrid that our guitarist has had for 2 years.
I need some advice here.
