Marshall MS-2R
This is a really small solid-state amp, one that can fit into your guitar case. There is simply a 1/4" input, nothing more. There is about 15 watts delivered if I am not mistaken. there is one channel, and two eq knobs that control EQ as well as gain and level. The unit runs on a 9V battery, but also has an adaptor sold separately.


The answer to the above question, "can one easily get a good sound" is a resounding NO. In fact, one cannot get a good sound at all, period. I'd rather play an electric guitar with no amplification at all than use this. The manual will explain it pretty well even though it's borderline unnecessary.


It really doesn't matter what guitar you use with this, all the character of your guitar is simply irrelevant once you plug it in. The small amp simply doesn't have the size or power to enhance, let alone replicate, the tone of your guitar. It compresses it to death. You will hate your sound while playing, and everything you play will sound bad. I don't really know what else to say about it.


I would much rather use a headphone amp than this thing, at least then you don't have to bother other people with your sound, and it's also easier to carry. I know the novelty factor is high, and that the mini half stack looks cool, but that will go away pretty soon. I think that if a small portable amp is a necessity, you should really look into Pignose, they have this corner of the market nailed and their amps sound like real amps.

Well then it's a transistor amp becaufe he went not necessarily mattres lamps in a small amp like her lol
C ke g good think 4 to 5 watts power level
There's just thrree knobs are ki
Volume to adjust the overall volume of the amp
Tone and I assure you it rule out the treble or bass
and a knob to select if seeing how clean or how "saturquot;


Aloors frankly is not easy stuff kom! third rule is the trick knob kon too simple!
This gives a good sound seulemnt but if you put the sound of the amp and the background sound of the guitar not super strong if its been a blast and super pa which reduces the sound power


Then the sounds are clean level has nothing to say as I hand ke di fo well above statements it nivo adjust the guitar and the amp's
of the distortion is not what it pa Excellent sound good parceke g rather sharp and it helps not to play all styles but believe me kan we are outside the bcp is noise and it does not care a bit about the dirty distortion
I even managed to get a feedback!


I bought it and are not longten jen kan sui even met parceke is not for play scene is done to take it anywhere and it's quite handy
Q / P is average ..

2 watt amplifier while plastoc, 2 channels clean / OD, Tone, Volume, headphone. Alim by 9v battery or power supply type of effect pedal.
Between a guitar.


Config simple.


Portable and robust, usable on battery or AC power (cool).
So I return to my tui electric guitar with an effects pedal (OD), an adapter and a garland. It allows me to carry everything in a box and play anywhere (with batteries or AC power).
The sound is clear enough crappy and the volume is too low, I leave all the time on OD switch, tone background.
The volume on this channel is sufficient, the crunch increases with the volume going to clear big crunch, the sound is quite cudgel with very little low (normal given the size of HP), but nevertheless have playable. I use most often with an OD pedal Bluesbreaker Marshall II. The sound is very nice with the pedal, you can really have fun at home.
By using the boost mode of the pedal pushed to the crunch from the amp, it has a fuzz of Hendrix espce likeable.

The sound through headphones is really dgueu on the other hand, a real honeycomb crunch!
The volume is sufficient to play with other guitarists.


I use it for 6 months before I had the equivalent at Dean Markley, but he ended up breaking.
I thought the two amps would be similar but in fact the Marshall sounds a little better, the sound is richer Surprisingly, it looks solid.
The only downside is the clean, non-existent, and the sound through headphones.
I like this lil amp that I can play anywhere. It would be perfect if it was already the sound of the pedal in, basically a crunch pushed over a lower volume, but for the price (50 new in stores) is d j nice.
