    I am not Tribb, Homeunit or Jape Man,(guys that earn money as musicans) but I can at least give you my opinion.

    I bought a 5150 becuase it was I could afford. Some of these high end amps come with a big price tag. I guess if you're knowlegable, you could pick up a great used Marshall, but if your like me, I couldn't pick a good one from a bad one.

    A 5150 sounds like a 5150. I can't seem to get to many different sounds out of it. The clean channel sucks (improved on the 5150 II). You just can't do much with it.

    As far as "tone" is concerned, I don't have a great ear..........I turn it on and it's loud and distorted and it makes my chest thump a little.

    I think the other guys could probably expand a little more on purhcasing a used Marshall, then to have some modifications done so it approachs that legendary brown sound.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
