You have a MA 100 dont you? Do you like it? Again this is a decision for you. Like the tone of the MA - keep it. Don't like it - try something else.

Re: bugera or marshall?

The videos you're talking about, The Tone King by any chance? Not sure I've seen anyone else talk them up to be honest. But you really need to ask yourself whether you want to get rid of the amp because YOU don't like it or because you've read some forumite slagging it off. Maybe go and play some Marshalls then look for a second hand one maybe?

Whatever the amps sound like you will get more money back from the Marshall if you decide to sell it.

Re: bugera or marshall?

I would not waste money on either of those amps. The Bugera is really a Berhinger, the cheapest, crappiest, copiest brand in music today. And the marshall... well, you are looking at a crappy Marshall that is Marshall in name only.

Buy a crate VC something, it would be better than either of those.

Unfortunately, those fellows don't wear T-shirts so we can distinguish the biased snobs and purists from the unbiased "I'll try anything" crowd. You have to go try out all of the amps on your list to hear what YOU like best.

Yep, the MA series are crap. An acquaintance I know bought one - and I regret it for him (I think he may not know any better). You can do loads better for that money.

Get a JCM800 and you'll see what a Rock amp is supposed to sound like. Not enough gain? Stick some kind of gain stompbox in front of it, I personally get away with a G2 through a 2204 clone I built. Are you skilled, soldering etc?
