« This is nice »

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 this was really the predecessor to the MG series amps.The dirty channel gets a nice crunch sound with plenty of versatility when mixing up contour control knob with the gain control knob. The surprising thing is that this amp is 40 watts. You wouldn't think it by first glance but it has a load of volume in it.

UTILIZATION

This is a very simple amp to use. You have three control knobs and those are gain, contour, and volume. There is also a boost for the amp that kicks in a few db of volume but also gets the amp to saturate a lot more pushing it into a modded Marshall tone.

SOUNDS

This amp very easy to use. You have one channel and that 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. It is much like the tone knob on your guitar.

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 amp can push a lot of volume with 40 watts of power. You can get more volume than you would probably need out of a practice amp, but hey maybe you can use this to take to your band practice as well.

OVERALL OPINION

You can no longer get these amps on the new market. They have been long since discontinued and replaced by the MG series amps from Marshall. It is a not the best sounding amp, but 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.
