    Hello,

    I started playing guitar when I was 17. At that time I built my own amplifiers. One reason was that I liked playing with electronics, another one was that 'real' amps were just too expensive for me at that time. Back in those days I've played a lot, but now my gear had been on the attic for many years.

    Now I'm 56 and somehow the pandemic started a spark again. Working from home and listening to my favorite music on my headphone instead of the middle-of-the-road music or autotune-hits at work. Listening to good music made me want to play music again. When I checked what gear was on the market today, I discovered modeling amps. That was something that was predicted back in the days and now it was here and at an affordable price. I decided to buy a Marshall Code25. The specs looked good and Marshall amps have a good reputation.

    :welcome:to the forum.
    Code amps can be a great way to get the tones of a variety of amps.
    Some people don't like them because they can be confusing to get to know.
    I've had the 100H and still have the 25 (I modded the chassis into a micro stack).
    Check out the Code editor for PC to make programming your presets a breeze.

    I'd also suggest the 4 button footswitch.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    I too have a Code25 for quiet practice in the house. Absolutely ideal. The tones may not be "real" valve Marshall amps, but they are good enough for the purpose.
