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.
