    I just got a yamaha rbx270 but the amp i got with it came damaged, and tbh it looked bad quality anyway.

    So I am looking for a new practice amp. I want to play in my living room, and I'm not in a band. My budget is around £110.

    Things which look promising so far:

    Marshall mb30
    Orange crush bx25 pix
    Ashdown perfect 10

    All of these seem to have both good and bad reviews and opinions are highly polarised online. I would just like a straight up recommendation to fit my budget.

    Is the "Acoustic" brand a possibility over there?

    Thats my vote.

    I noticed you said the amp came damaged...can you return/exchange it?

    The amp i got it with was a cheapo 40W amp. The delivery guy dropped it and the big magnet fell off the end. I reattached it but it sounds proper messed up, so i have asked for a refund. Apparently thats going to come thru next week.

    Sorry to bump.

    But mostly for me it is down between the Orange Crush 25BX and the Ashdown Perfect 10. The Orange does not have any reviews that I can find, which one of these is better?
