Marshall always comes out with great products, and they have done it again with the Soloist. For under $500, it would be hard to find a powerful practice amp that can match this one in style and performance.

This is one of the most capable amps that you'll ever find for under $500. You can access so many different tonal presets to play along with anything. The fact that you can play a bass through the amp is a bit of a mind blower. This is new technology in that realm and is really exciting for players who like to pick up different types of guitars from time to time.
