The BEST amp I have ever played
By: Jon Hass from Marysville, WA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's a high end Marshall, what do you think? I think this is the best head I've ever owned.
How has it stood up over time?
I've had mine for 4 years now and no real issues other than a blown fuse. This happened within the first couple months of owning it so it was covered under warranty but since then this monster has been good to me.
Your general opinion of this product.
4 channels, Marshall tone... This thing is a beast. I constantly get comments about my tone after I play shows with it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Controls are easy. I was testing this and a Mesa Dual Rectifier and spent about an hour with each. In that hour I couldn't dial in a tone I liked. Took less than 10 minutes with this baby.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
This thing has monster Marshall tone that's very versatile. I use a Gibson SG Standard and Gibson Thunderhorse Explorer with stock pickups. You can literally get any tone you want. My only complaint is the excess noise. I don't know about the newer models but mine squeals and hisses like no one's business without a noise gate on the orange and red modes.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Tolex was perfect, no rips or tears. No scratches either. Just pure Marshall beauty
How was the action out of the box?
