If you are a Marshall nut like myself and you are in need or a good sounding practice amp then this might be the amp for you. This is a low watt headphone featured and MP3/CD player featured mini combo amp from Marshall. It has an input for an AUX if you want to play some of your favorite music into your amplifier and jam along.

This is a two channel amp that has a clean channel and a dirty channel. However, the clean channel can get a nice gain sound good for classic rock when you turn up the volume. The dirty channel gets a nice crunch sound with plenty of versatility when mixing up contour control knob with the gain control knob.

This amp is extremely easy to use. The clean channel only has one control knob and that is for volume. The more you crank it up the more distorted it can get. It actually has a nice AC/DC type tone on this channel. The next channel has three control knobs one for gain, one for volume, and one for the EQ contour. The contour is an EQ sweep that reacts more to the mids than anything. So it is more of midrange sweep type control. It is very useful when dialing in the right voicing for your tone.

I like this amp with a humbucking style guitar such as a Gibson Les Paul or a SuperStrat. It like having that double coil pickup with the thick chewy distortion this amp can get.


This is a no brainer amp if you are in the market for a small practice combo for under $100. At new these amps come in at $70 and that is a steal for how amazing this thing sounds. Granted it is solid state sound but the whole reason you would buy this is for the simplicity of it to use silently in a hone or office and or just practicing.

I would recommend this amp to anyone who is looking for a good practice amp that wants a good distortion and a good clean channel and doesn't want to break the bank to purchase it.
