The Rambling Amp

Jessica isn’t the only one getting new musical equipment.

With a concert coming up this week, I decided it was high time I got myself a proper amp.

I had pretty much decided on getting the same model that Chris, who plays guitar, has. It’s the AS50R Soloist from Marshall. I was all set to go out and buy it from the local music store.

You can imagine my surprise, then, when Chris emailed me telling me that he spotted the same amp for sale in the local small-ad paper for two-thirds the price.

I arranged a meeting for today with the person selling it. That meant a trip across town but I wanted to try my bouzouki through the amp first and make sure the amp was okay.

The amp was more than okay. It was in mint condition.

I slapped down the cash, called a taxi and brought the newest addition to the household home with me.

As you can see, I’ve already customised the look of the amp.
