Chuck Levin's Music Center in Wheaton, MD has new Marshall Code modeling combo amps for guitar at a currently unbeatable price, each $50 below the street price.

Marshall Code 25 - $199.99

Marshall Code 50 - $249.99
https://www.chucklevins.com/produ...itar-combo
Marshall Code 100 - $399.99
https://www.chucklevins.com/produ...-amplifier

No promo code necessary. Shipping is free, and no tax is charged if outside MD.

Sam Ash will match or beat these prices. You can call in at 1-800-472-6274 and get one shipped or go to a local store with printouts from the Chuck Levins website. Chuck Levins is an authorized Marshall reseller as shown at http://www.marshallusa.com/dealers.asp so you should have no issues getting a price match (I went into my local Sam Ash yesterday in Atlanta and they matched the price with no trouble), though you will end up paying tax. However, there is less risk in buying from a store you can drive back to if something is wrong with the product.

The same should be true for Guitar Center, as they do price matching.

Alternatively, you can buy these on Amazon for the normal street price of $250, $300, or $450 respectively, and you should see on the product page that Amazon is offering 10% back on music/instrument purchases until December, but that still isn't as cheap as buying directly from Chuck Levin's or getting a local store to price match.

The product page is here:

And for hands-on reviews I think this is fairly helpful:

Not a great reviewer, more like. Anybody can (and does) make a YT review. That guy has no qualifications. Actually it is pretty good modeling amp, and decent bang for your buck if one is interested in a modeling amp.

How do you think this compares to the Boss Katana?

No, I shouldn't. You trust what you want, and I'll do the same. I've done plenty of research on the CODES, and have the 100W Head. Which I do recommend the head, as one of the shortcomings of most of the modeling amps are the speakers. This will never replace my tube amps, but is more than capable for a spectrum of sounds without having to invest in a ton of pedals that cost way more than cost of these modeling amps. And for beginners and others that may just want to play at home, it can be an amp that does it all.
So as usual, it depends what you are looking for.

Most would say the Boss would walk all over the Code.

Here's a comparison that includes both:

Now, as for me, I considered the Katana. However, there are two reasons why I opted for the Code:

1. Unless I'm mistaken, the Katana has no medium-small combo format. They've got a 7-watt mini amp or a 50 watt combo that's too big for my house (I've got two young kids in a small condo and have to tuck my gear away somewhere). On the other hand, the Code 25 is only about a dozen pounds and is small enough to fit where I need it, while still being 25 watts and having a 10 inch speaker.

2. Katana does not permit detailed parametric control of effects via the built-in interface (the Code has almost full editability via the top panel, and a tad more via a phone app), you have to hook the Katana to a computer via USB to edit those parameters. That's not completely terrible, but then again I do like idea of being able to create and edit tones without having to pull out a laptop (especially if the phone/bluetooth setting works well for Code, then it will be way easier than having to fire up a computer).
