"Classic Marshall Plexi sound in a small package"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Probably around 6 months...but that's just me.
Sound
A very good vintage sound. I would describe it as a "pre-Van Halen Brown sound/high gain-saturated heavy metal JCM 800", if that makes sense. It is very much a "plexi" sound, and even has a plexi control panel. It is a cleaner sound than the Clapton/Bluesbreaker Beano album sound, unless turned up. Then it gets a nice crunch, tube distortion.
Features
This amp makes no misconceptions that it is anything less than 100% simplicity. 2 channels; a volume and a tone knob on each are all that you have to shape your tone. It has a tremolo on the 2nd channel with speed and intensity. I wish it had a master volume to let me get some more gain at reaonable levels, but Oh, well.
Ease of Use
Like I said: 2 channels and two knobs. Turn up the tone knob for more treble and turn up the volume for more gain and distortion.
Quality
Handwired Marshall. Need I say more?
Value
It is very edxpensive. But compared to other handwired, low production boutique amps it is a great deal.
Manufacturer Support
Not needed...yet, at least.
The Wow Factor
Vintage Marshall. The sound that gave birth to the hard-edged, classic rock and blues that we all love. And the tones we love.
