Tube preamp with one 12 ax 7
Solid-state amp
40 watts of output power
Spring reverb
Clean channel + boost channel, nothing could be simpler, EQ for both channels.

UTILIZATION

Extremely easy to use: Plug in, dial in and it works...

SOUNDS

Magical sound, I've had a hard time getting the same sound with other amps (even with a more powerful Marshall). I use it for all my recordings.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good hybrid amp, but the pots are pretty fragile and must be replaced often.

Other than that, you won't be disappointed by the good old Marshall sound.
