whats a good marshall sound in a combo format?

You want one of the many many 18w marshall clones.. the top of the line is Bacino, those things are spot on and killer.. they're also a whole lotta money.. GDS, Blockhead, Germino, Roccaforte, Aiken, Sewell (the Texaplex), all make great great amps - any one would be a winner.. but my pick for the best value would be the Winifield Thomas November.. Great amp, hand wired, tone for days, very little money..

I think a brown Deluxe makes great Marshall tone.

I agree with Mike. The 18 watt clone is hard to beat. Build it yourself, save gobs of money, have fun and start a new hobby (addiction).

I built on of the first few on the old yahoo group back in Sept. '01 and have loved it since. It's my all time favorite amp so far.

If you want one really cheap, gut a pro jr. and pop in an 18 watt lite circuit.

Check it out.

Depends on what "Marshall" sound you want...

I'm assuming the Bluesbreaker type tone..The 18watt suggestions are good, If you have little $$ grab a Lead 12
off e-bay (very common) Less than $100 (besure it has the little Celestion G-10 speaker still inplace) ..SS but capable of some amazing sounds..you will need to mike it to play with others, a bit bright with SC so play with the eq a bit.

If you are a bit more flush (@300) look(not so easy to find) for the 30 watt (yea right) 1X12 artist combo (not the big 2X12 Artiste from the 70's) this is a 80's channel switching hybrid combo with a 12 Ax7 preamp tube a SS tone circuit, and 2 EL34's for power. Celestion Vintage 12 was stock, again work you tone controlls for the best sound.This has MV but needs to be wound up a bit.

Both of these amps can do a wide range of Marshall sounds, and are built VERY well, and are much less money than other comparable options.

Winnie wins my vote

His November amp can be had with 4 el84s and a half power switch (30-15 watts) that will get you great Marshall tone at reasonably loud and quiet volumes. I love mine, and I have a real plexi.

Yup... Winnie gets my vote...

For Marshall flavored low wattage kick-ass great bang for buck amps. I have the November 18 watter and I love it... gig it constantly.

I used to have a Marshall Bluesbreaker ri and I think the Top Hat Club series have a very similar feel.
The Bluesbreaker ri used 6L6 tubes so it wasn't totally true to the original but very similar to early Marshall tone none the less. The 6v6 powered Club Deluxe that I have sounds very similar to the Beano but half the weight, power and size.
The el-84 powered Club Royale will give you a little crunchier sound more like the el-34 Marshalls.

There a lot of very good comments on

the Rivera Chubster on the Fender Forum.
I have not heard one (knowingly) but most users
describe them as capable of various Marshall type
sounds along with clean Fender like foot switchable sounds.
Getting the control settings "right" on them appears to
be very important.
