hm rushing into purchasing an amp doesnt sound like a good idea to me...

1. do you need a new amp?
2. whats your price range?
3. what kind of music do you play?
4. what guitar you gots?
5. do you need a new amp?

its about the splurging man! If I was going to the states, I would rather spend my tourism money on an amp than mickey mouse hats...

with that said, if you are heading down to Californny you sure have a lot of options. Lots of boutique builders there. There are some really good amp makers in Colorado too I believe...Neil Zaza is there too also I think...

wow...thats quite a difference. Might want to pick one up then. Check out the Tech21 Trademark 60 too, and the Vox AD50VT if you can.

the roland and those two amps are very similar (1x12 combos). The tech21 is solid state while the roland and vox and modeling. Try them out and see which you like best.

the epi is a very nice little amp. Lots you can do with them, and even stock they are great. Worth a try. I would personally go with a vox AD series though lol...I like those things...or a roland cube...

Spend your money at home, go to your local L&M and buy a YCV50...a great amp that our American friends don't really know about!

Id look for a National Duolin, metal bodied round neck, even though they come with their own "amp" they are way too pricey up here-I played one at a store last month, a new one, man was it LOUD.
