"Not Marshall's best"

This is a cheap amp from Marshal in just about ever way. The tone is thin and fizzy at best an the overall feel of the amp is sub par. This amp doesn't have the feel of what you would think when they claim the tube feeling of the amp. The power section is still solid state and you will not get that tube punch that comes with a real all tube amp.

SOUNDS

The tone of of this amp is not very good. It really isn't any better than a Line 6 modeler amp. Yes it does a preamp tube in it but that only changes the voicing of the amp. The feel is what makes a tube amp and tub amp. That can only come from the power section. This amp is really about the same as a $100 solid state amp.

Doesn't really matter what guitar you play with this amp because it is just garbage. The tone is a Marshall tone but so sub standard to what I feel a Marshall amp to be. I suggest throwing this amp off the roof and being done with it.

OVERALL OPINION

These amps are no long in production and the used market is the only way to score one now. I would suggest not wasting your time with this hunk of junk. Get a real tube and or just save your money. This amp is sterile sounding and just plain awful. If you do find one in the classifieds just keep going until you hit Marshal JCM2000 DSL 100 or Peavey 5150. You will get a much better tone out of those amps than you would this thing.
