    Okay, I`ve narrowed it down to two amps. The Marshall B65, or the Ashdown 5:15. I can get the Ashdown for a small bit cheaper and I`ve heard good stuff about them. I will mainly be using it for practise and acousticy jams with friends. Any advice on which to get or any other amp suggestions?

    Warning: I have not played either of these amps. That said, I find that single 15" speaker combos usually sound muddy. So on that basis alone I would get the Marshall. The 12" will probably give you a much better range than the 15".

    Ashdown definately. The Marshall bass stuff is horrible IMO.
