    So, had been looking for a first amp. As a beginner was undecided about whether to get a small combo amp and get effect pedals or to go the modelling amp route.
    Only just starting to learn to play and after doing lots of reading (this forum is just full of information it’s fantastic) I decided a small modelling amp would suit me best at this point in my musical journey. I did lots more reading of reviews of different amps and had narrowed my choice to a marshall code 50 or the boss katana. Searching classifieds and the local cash converters i found a brand new looking katana 100 for very little money so I took the plunge and bought the katana. I haven’t had much time to play with the settings but I am very pleased with the sound that my streamliner makes through the clean setting.
    Looking forward to playing around with the effects.
    Then just need to improve my guitar playing skills. IMG_0145.jpg

    Congrats. Amazing sounding amp. Wish I didn't have too many amps already so I could get one!

    Good choice
    I have had one for a couple years now.
    While I no longer use it as I have 2 new Blackstar tube combos I’m still hanging on to it as a pretty solid backup.
    A lot of bang for very little buck

    Thanks for the comments and likes everyone. Spent an enjoyable day playing around with the tone studio trying out the different effects and sounds. As the saying goes time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time!

    Nice combination. You started out ahead of me in amps. My first was a Fender Champ 20, which I still have, then cycled through about four more, buying and selling, varying makes and models, until I added my Vox AC15. Now I’m considering a Fender Princeton Reverb, but need some advice from the forum on that, which I’ll request on a seperate thread.

    Now you cannot blame your equipment anymore for sounding bad.
