Polaroil's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Marshall not a trivial"

Marshall 6101
Lamps 100w, 50w or 25w adjustable, cut through the two power tubes, or passage in triode mode. (The sound is modified as well)

3 channels with EQ own. Switches mid-cut and bright on a (clean), three modes of the two (Plexi to JCM900), and gain boost and contour of the 3 (high gain).

Input offset for SC or Humbucker, and low volume switch off (a "loudness")

Connections for two speakers, DI output, access noon, adjustable effects loop.

Very comprehensive settings

UTILIZATION

Once selected the appropriate power, and the input level selected, the clean channel is easy to understand, with the ability to switch a filter or a bright mid-sccop.

The high gain channel 3 is also simple, with a knob contour (scooped mids), and gain boost to trigger according to taste.

Channel 2 ets with the more complex three quite different ways, increasing gain, emulating the JTM 45 to JCM 900 (or 800 rather boosted). They react differently to gain settings-volume preamp, so a little research is needed.

The manual is clear, without giving any examples, but I would say that the amp does not address a total beginner.

SOUNDS

This is a very versatile Marshall. I plug a Strat, Tele, Gibson ES335, or Wolfgang in, their personalities are respected by the amp.

Overall, this amp delivers a very powerful dynamic sound, and sounds rich and expressive, fairly upscale.

1.The Clean channel is a very "hifi", and agrees well distortion pedals. The reserve is huge clear sound mode 50 or 100W ... The Celestion 200W internal demand also has to be manhandled to sustain this clear sound. HP a lighter as a Hot 100 improves the rendering at low volumes.

2. Channel 2 is the secret of this amp. A mode delivers clear sound very warm, which can bend in fine style by climbing the gain. Mode B must be the JCM 800 and it does not dishonor his model. Dynamics and the feeling of power I have marked the point of buying this amp after having sold qq years ago. I never found this potato elsewhere. He also enjoys taking a distortion or a boost for its + still wild. C mode boosts the gain, such JCM900 but with more definition.

3. More gain, more "fuzz" and complex than channel 2, lots of harmonics and "overtones" ..

In 50 or 100W with an extension cabinet, the power, the definition and dissemination are impressive, despite the size of the set.

OVERALL OPINION

This is my second 6101, after a blue sold by mistake

The variable power, the three channels, make it a true Swiss Army knife scratch.
This amp is a fairly unique quality.

Marshall 6101
This is the blue version of the combo, made by hand, with the booklet was entitled to a sheet with the signature (in Bic!) Of all who are involved in the manufacture of the device, and m me of the great Jim.
All-tube amp with 4 EL34. It is no longer original, these are Tesla (brand now called JJ / Tesla).
7 12AX7 in pramp. Everything is a spar that the circuit is used only clean clean, the crunch at crunch, etc..
The connection is ultra complte. It was a line out, one between Poweramp (for between another pramp in), an effects loop or parallle SERIES, half power switch, switch, pentode / triode. It is also the faade Low volume compensation.
Whew! the list goes on, but everything is perfect for me.

UTILIZATION

Sounds complicated to beginners, a Marshall with the same button! It is so fast, and we quickly crushing the beast, to make a you want, within the limits of Marshall sounds.

SOUNDS

I play heavy speed with my group, but given my influences, I can get out with a marshall! I prcise I have the matching 1x12 cabinet in blue, and I never play with the combo alone. The sound is more excavation of the lower class with much prcises.
Likewise I do not use the pentode combo, because it's much too strong. By saturating the power tubes, bury all that is around, the Mesa (my other guitarist) on drums! In triode is rcupre heat, but the sound is not fun
-The clean is excellent, bright switch can help shape a more Bluesy. It is a little right, but quite usable and trs hot, a little crunch limit the Gain knob.
-The crunch is the showpiece of this combo. With no switch has been activated sound has the AC / DC was crying, with Gibson, is happiness. Switch enfon a sound is a little twisted but still intelligible. basically a sound like a Plexi. For the Rock there all good! With a style boost tube screamer or dod Juicebox, we come to increase the volume for solos, even in just a background. With 2 switch is saturated more than the lead, but with the least prcis (or drooling).
The lead-eyeing the cot of the mythical JCM800, the HardRock his 80's, with a larger reserve of gain. (Nothing to do with the boogie) It's grainy, rough, violent limits. Harmonics ptent mouth, the palmmute ncessite a great strength of his right hand to not sound "Chochote".
My advice for discovering the true value of this amp, put the volume a background channel and adjust the output with the master. The world of rock awaits you ...
I put 9 because it sounds modern and current never get out of this amp. Born to Rock!

OVERALL OPINION

I utlise 6 years, he has 13 and still works! I jou over for 5 years and a half without reverb, and I had a Korg PX3 lying. I said, "is like a reverb ptite the inside?" I put all in the loop, the rglages is suitable, and presto! It sure is not a Holy Grail, but hey, for me it is more than enough, to embellish the basic sound.
I do it again this choice without hsiter. The only BMOL is the weight: 35 kilos the combo, I just back pain to say! The fact of the dplacer made him take small wrinkles, which is why I think it has to take a substitute for dplacement, but I will keep forever. It has the default and large amplifiers. A must ... for me;)

Marshall 6101
I have a 6101 30th anniversary LM combo, black version.
so it's a 100w amp lamp (huge) with 3 channels: clean, crunch, lead.
each channel to its egualistaion treble bass middle, with the gain for the crunch and lead. Each channel is equipped with modes:
clean: bright and mid shift button
crunch: how a, b, c (this gives a different rate of gain).
Lead: gain boost and contour (the hollow middle)
by that he has to 2Quit hp external one occupied by the internal hp, another free. it can be used as a head in the HP internal DISCONNECTING.
parralèele or effects loop series. possibility to use four power tubes in their half power. and possibility to use only two of the four lights (useful if a lamp that pete in concert.
MIDI input and foostwitch with 6 pins. XLR line output.
So as the first comprehensive review hyper.
PS: or find a footswich with 3 switches and 6 pin!! mine was not delivered.

UTILIZATION

Comprehensive for the marshall, but like all simple to understand.
in the ca I would approach her in the next theme.
I have the manual in German and was quickly abandoned reading.

SOUNDS

It is perfect for my style of music and besides it is very versatile: I play heavy metal princiaplement trend and medieval symphonic perfect for the metallica, iron maiden, hammerfall ... plenty of gain to thrash (I do not use the key gain boost and contour cart it spoils the whole).
I also had the rock of the old Led Zeppelin, one of the strong points too.
basically it is the blues, rock, heavy metal (thrash, speed ..).

MONSTRUEUESE sound quality, a huge dynanmique, a tremendous heat, I hear variations that finally all my amps while emphasizing quality of your guitar and your default (prohibits false note, it makes the earth tremble).
the lead is really monstruex it's ever heard.
the crunch even monstrous, to the Led Zep's glory.
the clean to the marshall is great, better than fender I think (it more crunch, but not bcp).
So imagine handmade quality it was worth € 1,500 at the time Now it turns out that doccaz at SURROUNDINGS € 1000.
I've had in a great condition as new, with new lamps on the inside and the guy spun me still new replacement lamps. all for € 700 (1000 Swiss francs)

OVERALL OPINION

After much reflection, I came across the best amp I had ever tried (to my taste!) And at the best price. it's clear he has only HP, but I intend bought me a 4 * 12 qq option in time.
ca shit to death.
I put 10 because that's what I wanted, but nothing is perfect, because it does not have the reverb!! personal and I would have preferred two vintage hp 30 hp as a 200w.
but these defects and they are filled with these qualities.
the best in my opinion.

Marshall 6101
100w lamps, 50w or 25w adjustable, instantly cutting off two power tubes, or passage in triode mode. (The sound is modified also)
3 channels with legalization clean. Switches mid-cut and bright on a (clean), 3 modes on the 2 (Plexi JCM900), and gain boost and contour of the three (high gain).
Offsets between SC or Humbucker and low volume switch off (a "loudness")
Connections for two speakers, DI output, CASC noon, adjustable effects loop.
Trs rglages complete, but no rverb.
I added the extension cabinet closed 6912 (1x12), for more broadcast live.

UTILIZATION

On paper, the possibilities are RVer. Once the power adapteslectionne, and the level of the channel entreslectionn apprhender clean is easy with the possibility to switch a filter or a bright mid-sccop.
3 channel high gain is also simple, with a button contour (scooped mids), and gain boost switch on as gots.
Channel 2 ects the more complex patterns with 3 DIFFERENT enough, gain increasing mulant the JTM 45 JCM at 900. They ragissent diffrent to gain SETTING THE pramp-volume, so a little research is ncessaire.
The manual is clear, without giving any examples, but I would say that the amp does not address a total beginners.

SOUNDS

It is a versatile Marshall trs, without being exceptional.
I plug a Start, Gibson ES335, or squier 51 in, their personalities are respected by the amp.
Overall, this amp trs powerful dlivre good momentum, and sounds rich and expressive, very upscale, especially on channel 2.
1.The Clean channel is a straight as an I, I got a little too, and may be lacking a bit of life, like a Vox or Fender. Its neutrality can be nanmoins apprcie in some styles, and accepts many of the distortion pedals. The reserve of the light is against standard mode 50 or 100W ... The clestion 200W internal demand has also to be live this Malmen clear sound.
2. Channel 2 is the secret to this amp. Mode A dlivre trs warm clear sound, which can twist in the amount of fine Manir gain. Mode B must be the JCM 800 and it's not dshonore MODEL. Dynamics and the feeling of power marked me as to buy this amp APRS have sold there qq Annes. I never found that potato elsewhere. He also likes to take a distortion or a boost for the still wild +. C mode boosts the gain, such JCM900 but with more DEFINITIONS.
3. Trs a big win, rather (too?) Compress and it is therefore flt rgler modrment, but we have high volume so that its a 3rd can pr-rgler above for solis exiting the mix.
In 50 or 100W with extension cabinet, power, The definition and dissemination are impressive, despite the size of the set.

OVERALL OPINION

This is my 2nd 6101, APRS blue sold because no one knew eliminate background noise on the ingrable CH2 (snif!)
The variable power, the three channels make it a true Swiss Army knife scratch. Although sr is a factory with gas lamps 13 (no fan!).
This is an amp rather unique, of quality with its imperfections, but a hell of a qd same tool that I will keep for him to attach the baffle extension 6912.
