Learn more about Marshall's Tilt control on the Origin Series:

The footswitchable gain boost feature allows you to develop your sound by adding an extra level of gain to deliver crunch to your tone. With one channel, this amp still offers a variety of tones. By using the tilt control you can vary your sound from normal to high treble to access the one you prefer. To suit your playing environment -- from the bedroom to the studio -- Marshall's power reducing technology, Powerstem, allows you to have high, medium or low power modes. Increasing the master volume can give you that classic overdrive sound and using the presence control you can increase the high frequency.

"Vintage Tone on a Budget"

I wanted that vintage Marshall tone but didn't want to break the bank, I was able to pick this up with the matching 2x12 slant cab for just $750 here on zZounds. This thing gives me all that Marshall vintage sound and feel. This is a pedal platform amp and simply sings with my Fulltone PlimSoul plugged right in the front (in my opinion effects loops are for reverb and delay only and even that is debatable), I am going to pick up a Tube Screamer for that SRV goodness and a RAT for those 80's high gain rock tones , if you want vintage Marshall tone (Think Hendrix, Zeppelin) and can't justify $1300 for the Studio Vintage head this is the amp head to get, if you need more than 20W go for the 50W version at just $100 more. This is definitely a situation where less is more if you're looking for an amp with a multitude of features or high gain look elsewhere this is a very basic 1 channel amp with a boost feature and NO reverb.
