iamqman's review"Meh not great but not bad"

Marshall MHZ15
Marshall has been one of those companies that have still great quality hard rock and metal amplifiers. In recent years he been dumbing down the products and making it more affordable for people which is good in a sense that it gets the product in the hands of a budget musician but they also decrease their quality by doing this. This is where those amplifiers that is decent but not great. It's a 15 watt all tube amplifier. However the tone of this amplifier is just not there. You have preamp tubes and you have power amp tubes but it just doesn't have the right feel and right tone overall. It could be to transformers that are used but it just doesn't have that right touch and feel.

UTILIZATION

Vintage-style looks and construction

Emulated spring reverb Onboard effects: Echo, Chorus, and Vibe
Includes 2-button footswitch



SOUNDS


The tone of this amp is not too bad but it's certainly is not great either. This is one of those amplifiers that is targeted at a budget musician who doesn't have a lot of experience playing the guitar and wants an all-encompassing guitar amplifier. WHat I mean by that is you have the added effects and different modulations that allow you to not use floor effects pedals or any rack mounted pedals. You get all your FX and amplifier settings in one head. This is convenient for people but for a professional, it's not to be acceptable.

OVERALL OPINION


These amps come in right at around $600 new. That's not a bad price for an amp, but if you can spend around $600 and I would say it up another hundred dollars can just go out and get Marshall JCM DSL and be done with it. That amplifier sounds fantastic and for the money at use price you can't really beat that. If you're not wanting to go that route you can also do Peavey amplifier like a 5150 for right around the same price so I would suggest going that route over this amplifier if you don't need the effects that are on board.

At first contact, Haze seems to me "normally" damn. It is something else. But everything is there and we did not feel uncomfortable. The Tolex is well bonded, the pediment nice, the buttons seem correct and we have not forgotten the system biasage found since TSL100 (but inside the Haze). To stay in domestic criteria, you will not find, however, no transformer wound by hand, no big fat wire or transistor good bill this head is stripped. Two channels, which is also good for this price range.

[8] Surprise, Marshall comes with a lot of options. The construction quality is not breathing store competitors, but it is anyway in front of something honest.

UTILIZATION

<span style="font-style: normal;">It has a clean channel that divides the equalizer with the channel distortion. The equalizer reacts more Virula the overdrive on the clean mode. The pedal can have everything under control. At the present group, I am torn, I judge the poor, another found sufficient. To see in what conditions you operate.
</span>
<span style="font-style: normal;">No, it is not easy to have a good sound like that. The head has many good sounds, but it will find them.

</span> [9] There is nothing wrong with using it is if you can not use it in all contexts of groups, imagine if your partner eg a 100w, or is your drummer Dave Grohl.

SOUNDS

On the manual, Marshall us with a nice "inspired sound of the Seventies&#39;s"! Ok, I want to believe, indeed, the Haze reminds me vaguely JCM800 2204 of the time (50W, one channel for the grandfather). But there are wider media, fatter, too, with highs more variable, ranging from fairly mild to aggressive depending on the setting. But with a more cheap and dirty sometimes see primitive.

The overdrive section covers a wide range of applications. The sound seems consistent with a dynamic rather direct (hard). Sensitivity to hitting is good for an amp of this class, is sufficiently detailed and forgive a little errors (to understand: not completely detailed anyway). The sound is compact and the distortion is rather smooth (do not mix with very good). The switch changes over the bright presence that meet the treble on that channel.

The clean simple does not pull bricks. It is oriented vintage and a little analytical for my taste when compared to what we know about the brand. By activating the switch on the other hand bright, treble overflow quickly. One can, in this mode, quickly get the crunch and there are sounds reminiscent of old Fender. A mix between a bit jtm45 and super reverb. The very lively. Perfectly in place for the old LedZep, blues or funk nasty. But no one knows the size of the original amps that time.

MY BIG SURPRISE:
was the effectiveness of integrated effects which were very good. The echoes are a good compromise between warmth and clarity, the choruses are full, as the reverb elsewhere. Really cool except for a sort of hiccup when switching between some certain effects.

[7] Haze has nice sounds that are certainly not the hallmark of what is happening in Mojave, Top Hat, Rockytop, Buddha or Gabtone (eg .. but y &#39;are others), but will be sufficient for the lovers of this kind of sounds that have a tight budget.

OVERALL OPINION

Marshall offers a serious competitor in the low-end amps tube. His reputation and the publicity machine should both help to popularize the craft quickly. For this price, the sounds are good for what it is possible to get for that price too. For what it is possible to have the market there is naturally better, but at twice the price. I do not like having exploited Hindus salary crèveladalle so we can make savings, which cost him a point.

[7] Very advisable in the low range.

My advice below may seem odd. But generally, I do not recommend low budget amps novices who will, with the Haze, ValveKing, epiphone, ect ... sounds nicer than when we hammered our Yamaha transistor 8w. For those who already have a little hand and base guitar, orient yourself real amps! Never forget that a good amp shop (with a true craftsman behind the soldering iron), can already be dug up around 1000 euros and that any low-end cam this will take some years before self-destructing. Besides being exploited workers paid a pittance and being fattened mainly intermediate I personally consider it unnecessary.
