    If one of you is eyeing the Studio Silver Jubilee, the full 100W version (2555X) is 600 more than the Studio version. I'd go that way. Also, Sweetwater sells 100W+4x12 with a $500 bundle discount - $3K for the set as opposed to $2450 for the Mini+2x12.

    In exactly what universe is it that prices are going to go back down? 'Cuz I'd love to hop a black hole to that one, and quickly.

    Marshall are doing their best to price them reasonably yet stay above water . They aren’t exactly hitting home runs anymore. They built a legacy but even following their own act is tough to follow.

    When supply catches up with demand, prices will drop. Eventually factories will get their workers back and production will increase. When the market fills up with new guitars and amps, used prices will drop too. That’s my prediction. Time will tell.

    they never do on just about anything. they get us use to paying the hike and
    eventually it sticks as the new norm. a few yrs rest and up it goes again until it
    phases out or they stop production altogether.

    Think a $100 price increase is bad ? Try purchasing a video card for your PC right now, then we'll talk.

    I'd love to own one of these, but when I can get:

    a custom built JCA22h for $499 (complete with JCM800 circuit)
    a DSL20h for $499
    a 6505mh for $599
    an EVH5150III for $599
    an InvectiveMH for $699
    an MT15 for $749

    or a used JCM900 and Power Brake for under a grand there's no justification for paying $1399 for any SC. The name isn't worth that much and if Jim can't build an amp for the same wholesale price as everyone else, then that's his bad, not mine.

    Although, there is an SC20H on Reverb right now for $827, but the guy is in Germany, so shipping is nearly $200...

    Never had my numbers change from sweetwater or zzounds. They don’t even pull a credit check on me anymore.
    I just prefer the 48 pay over 12 or 18. When I get extra cash from a bonus or refund I toss it at the payments and speed it up.

    Money printers going "Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr".
    Hope you all did something with your "stimmy checks" to hedge against the coming onslaught of inflation.

    I don't need anymore gear, so my stimulus is staying in the bank for bills and necessities. I'm going to stock back up for the next incoming lockdown.
