UTILIZATION

Nothing really to understand Chinese, as the majority of Marshall, by the way.
In his clear, not much to quibble. The sound is decent and étonammant clear to a Marshall.
Note that beyond the "5" the clean channel starts to crunch.
The manual is good support and possibly a good starting point to search for sounds.

SOUNDS

Suits my style (pop rock tenancy "heavy"), especially with a humbucker equipped with scrapers.
Overdrive is a politically correct, while overdrive 2 sends you walk the + side of things metal. The shift affects tone by boosting the mids (70's rock) or cutting (metal)
If you want to thicken the sound, add an additional HP is a good plan.
The reverbs are doing very honorably.
With a scraper style Tele / Stratocaster, it is confined to clear and crunchy sounds.
Amazing versatility for the price.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been 4 years and I use this amp without care. The Marshall sound is not a legend: he has already taken a shovel from his cabinet further without Scilla. Do not start, however.
Too bad there's no volume général.Remarque only valid for home use only seen live, it's still open to a Marshall bottom turns ...
For the price, it is not stolen. My next amp is a Marshall tube but this time. In this category, their value for money is also one of the best on the market.
