Default Re: Guitar Amps

You really need to take your guitar into a shop and spend a half-a-day playing every amp you can.
In and of itself, the Strat doesn't speak crunch to me. Designed in 1954, 3 single coil pick-ups, it's more known for it's clean "twangy" sound. Run through a distortion/overdrive .... then you get some crunch.
If you have a favorite guitar player ... copy his rig (as close as you can).
Get a Line 6 pod, and your options become "almost" unlimited.
If you really want a Marshall ... then you also have to figure out ... how much power do you need .... and are you going for combo, half stack, or full.
