- Amp trs simple in its use. 30 watt amplifier transistors, 2 inputs and a footswitch.
- I bought it new but no manual ... So rock & roll ... just like her! No heat lamps, but the amps sound very fat even when to have fun at home. I had a branch above, but ZOOM 9002 ct just crunch the amp enough. One branch, turn the knobs and away you go. Foncirement, the clear, ultra-saturated is not his forte, but putting prs little dirty while half of that wish: op
- I used it diffrent guitars (pickups simple humbuckers) and my guitar is a copy dernire musicman on which I mount of Seymour Duncan a double bridge and a double major in Splitt) and I found the sound I wanted (with the power that can not get back all my family)
- Overall Opinion
- Fter we will both our 25 years together in 2008 ... He was always home except for a recording studio, rpt 'or in concert it is unfortunately not the height:' o (
C'tait as my first amp (bought in the only store of rural town I lived o) I did not compare with other amps before buying ... any fawn, I get it even when taken just silent because he stamped Marshall ....
Since I had the opportunity to try other amps, but this little combo (in size but not the weight ...) suitable for private use.
Finally, if you get a chance, plug a Bontempi organ above the saturation through the bottom .... it's cheap and there's a sound ... con is a teenager, but dares all o)

- Small Amplifiers Transisitors 30W with 2 inputs (high and low), it has no effect but with a Boss pedal SuperOverdrive it makes a truly unique sound for the blues.
- The setup is all that is simpler, and we get easily a good sound, the sound is quite clear round and clear in the treble, as the manual, I have not (purchase)
his genial with some pedals
- Personnelemnt, it suits me to do, I probably resell it.
I had a couple Boss SupoerOverdrive for the blues for me Restituta a grain just right, I love, no breath, a great sound.
I try other amps (lamps and transistors), but it is only he who has managed to get this feeling. (But I buy more ...)
- Overall Opinion
- must have about 5 years I have, I love it, but not for the sound, look also for its simple, it seems all nice but it can be very "crunchy"! haha
all I can really blame him is his weight ... I think it is really very heavy!
I try a lot of other models before taking it, just to compare, and I am not at all.
for the quality price ratio, I know not being given that gift, so ...
PS: It is great for studio recording (coupled with a nice little SM 57 ...) but it is obvious that with its small power of 30W is not to do ... what a shame .. scne .

- Note that the fabric of mine is light brown rather than black. I give 6 voilu because I would have some effect too.
- Manuel? Or? I had my occas 250
- This gives a good thing by putting a distortion 10, 10 and treeble Prsence 10. Has become the good. But the rest ....
- Overall Opinion
- I've had six months, bought used a 250. I do not know if I would do this election ... I try the other amp ... B eh yes

- An amplifier transistor. I use it to play the harp on it but it's a guitarist friend gave it to me (after being rejected several times by other guitarists). Despite its size and weight (it has almost the same size as the valverstate 2000 ...) and the name of Marshall, I recommend for those looking for power (and his side, ca is not worth the quality of an amp Tube ).... Nice guy looking for his old blues ...
The settings are fairly simpas
Side connections, just two inputs (low / high), no headphone
Here are the instructions on the manual:
Master Volume 30 watt transistor
Sensibility: All controls than 0.35mV RMS
1.7V RMS maximum input level
Swing Tone: Bass 100Hz - 15dB
Middle 500Hz .... 25dB
Trebble 16dB (mid max)
42 dB (mid max)
Power output: 30 Watts RMS into 4 ohm load
IC and transistors built
Loudspeaker, Specially Designed 12 inch 70 watt RMS 4 ohm
Power requirment: Mains input - Internally set 220/240v. 40/60hz. 110/120V. 40/60Hz
Internal fuse 110/120V hands. - TIA 220/240v. - T500mA
Max input power 65vA
HP Output, Approximately 100mW Into 4/8ohm
Appromimately DI Output 600mV RMS output level at 30Watts
- My brother (guitarist) no one has tested only once: for him, he is nice but lack of energy and it is reminiscent of the old blues - rock a little to Johnny Rivers.
For the harp, with one good mic or shure (although I advise against it) of the Bluesmaster hohner, we get a cool sound, the old blues sound ... Only regret is missing the reverb.
I found the manual on the net (on the website of marshall I think) and even the diagram technique for components etc ... the manual is limited to the strict minimum, some specifications ...
- For the harp, I find it pretty cool, it looks pretty cool with its old potassium.
The usual setting of marshall (simple: all the potassium in depth!) Is prohibited.
In short, this is the amp that could give the lie to the reputation of Marshall (I'd like to see play on metalheads, they would be surprised!)
- Overall Opinion
- It'll be a year since I have it.
What I like most is his former side, simple (the amplification system is very simplistic) and robust (I have no pota sizzling despite age). In addition, it is rare to find other people who have it. The look suits me very well.
What I like least is its weight and size (even if it was a 100W lamp, I will understand), the transport is a hassle ... its lack of power, crunch (and not easy to get the clean sound, ideal)
I tested the 2000 valverstate my brother (for the harp, I would not recommend), the Peyvey Classic (I know if the 70w or 100w) tube (TERRIBLE!) And a Custom 30W transistor (very good sound for the guitar).
I remain convinced that this is not the amp that will make me play better ... even though my teacher did not try, I think any good harmonica player is able to make it sound.
