    well, I dunno about either amp, but just based on the specs, I'd say it would depend on what you want to get out of the ampeg. If you want a different tone (assuming Marshall sounds diff than ampeg), then sure, go for the Ampeg. But since the Ampeg is only a few watts more, I wouldn't buy it in the hopes that you will be a lot louder. If you want more volume, consider holding off to save for something bigger (say a 200-300w head w/cab(s)), though since you're not in the US, I'm not sure what kind of access you have to bass gear, so getting "something bigger" may not be worth the time or effort.

    well actually i'm quite happy with the volume of my 65 marshall but i want somthg different than marshall, i want a new different tone amp...
    wherever we play over here there is always a big sound system to which u can easily line out or mic the amp so no prob there
    and in band practice my bass amp sounds just fine and i got enough equipment that i can plug it into in case it gets low

    anyway, please keep the suggestions coming
