They are able to tap a good market with this amp with the price point they start at and the availability of them in the guitar stores. However, this amp is such garbage that it is actually an embarrassment to the Jim Marshall.

This amp sound like what you would want a Marshall to sound like only it doesn't. This amp is tinty and thin sounding as most solid state amps lend themselves to be. The Eq's are very harsh and dialing out that fuzzy buzzy distortion tone will keep you twisting knobs more than playing time.

The best thing you can do with an amp like this is throw it off the roof. If you don't have a roof try lighting it on fire. In all seriousness though the amp can get you a good practice or jamming tone. Don't try to go out and gig with this amp though because the sound man will laugh you right off the stage.

Use a good Gibson Les Paul with this amp or another guitar with a humbucker style pickup in it. You need that extra coil to try and tame some of the harsh frequencies inherent to this amp.


I would not recommend this amp to anyone. If you need a decent two channel amp then try a Peavey or a Roland cube. I know it doesn't say Marshall on the side of those amps but this my friends is not what a Marshall sounds like.

They do not make these amps anymore so you will have to go on the used market to scout one out. I have seen them a lot for under $200. Which isn't a bad price for an amp that has multi channels and effects. But the ridiculous wattage this thing has makes me wonder why you would need that loud of bad tone.
