"Best Amp I Ever Owned. The History Of Marshall In One Amp!"

Owned it 3 years now. It's not going anywhere!! If stolen or broken beyond repair I would by another in a heartbeat. It should last a lifetime. Best amp I ever owned.

Sound
I can't find enough words to explain the sheer joy this amp brings me. Every Marshall sound is in here provided you pick the right channel and twist the knobs to get it there. I owned several different Marshalls over the years and am a purist. After three years owning this amp head I packed everything away and this is it now. I do keep an old vintage Marshall combo as a backup just in case but I am just blown away and everytime I try something else nothing compares. I know it looks cliche to rate it a perfect 10 but it truly is just that!!

Features
It comes loaded to the gills. I like the fact that it reads Midi and that was included and not an option you have to pay for. Get yourself a great midi controller and you hit a home run. If not the included footswitch is more than ample. The direct out believe it or not is killer!! I used it twice in the recording studio on the fly. The only thing I don't like is the cable connection recepticles. They are made of cheap plastic. In three years of ownership and a heavy gigging guitarist I have to get these replaced about once a year. It has all the features one could ask for.

Ease of Use
If you know how to turn knobs on an amp to get your sound you are there. LOL! read more There are a few buttons to push aside of that to turn on the FX Loop and Reverb and get you thru the modes on each channel but that's it.

Quality
For what it is and where it came from (Marshall), I just feel there are a few things they could have done better here. The connection recepticles being flimsy plastic are my biggest gripe. This is the flagship head from Marshall. Come on guys! I also had the FX loop potentiometer replaced twice already. As far as tubes go BE CAREFUL!! It overheats alot of tubes according to my amp tech aside of SED Winged C EL34's and JJ EL34 L's. I was using Ruby EL34BSTR's and replacing them like crazy because they just kept overheating. I am back to using the Winged C's in the power section and JJ ECC83S's in the preamp section and everything seems okay now. Aside of this the handle atop the head broke and was replaced. For three years service of heavy gigs though it has been flawless in every other respect.

Value
Absolutely worth the value. Like a fine car it will hold its value too.

Manufacturer Support
Talked with them several times. Always helpful and have great knowledge about the product.

The Wow Factor
For those looking to find all the tones of every Marshall ever made, this is the tool right here. Comes in a combo too for those looking for something a bit more compact.
