These guitar amps have been some of the most highly used amplifiers that Marshall has ever produced. So many rock guitarist and regular guitarist and just any guitars around if they've ever play to marshal chances are they play one of these for them put Marshall's heads. This is a basic amplifier and sake certainly a good quality amplifier for most musical needs. All the controls are very easy layout and they're pretty self explanatory. You have a presence control it based control and middle control a trouble control a volume control and another volume control and those two void controls will control each set of two inputs high and low.
The tone of these amplifiers are just classic Marshall. It has a familiar ring to it if you've ever heard any rock album from the 70s on till today. It's a great platform for modification so if you're not getting the tones you want you want a lot more game because in general of these amplifiers don't have very much again unless you really crank volume out of them which is not usable for bedroom playing. So chances are you probably have to get modified in which it'll add a ton more gain a lot more responsiveness to the amplifiers. Today's modifiers have really got a handle on how to make these guitar amplifiers for sound amazing. But if you want to leave cleaning untouched and use a good overdrive pedal to max out your game potential. Depending on what pick ups you have he might need a little bit more game unless game but I generally like to use a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge position of my guitar and a 59 pick up in the next position up my guitar. I find that these pickups really match very well with the voice and tone of this amplifier.
I would say that the speaker of choice when it comes these amplifiers are either a greenback speaker or a GH30 speaker. Does British sounding speakers just match perfectly with this British sounding amplifier. I'm never been a fan of the GT75 speakers or the V 30 speakers or vintage 30 speakers because of the sterile harsh tone in them. I like the way to GT 75 speakers sound with a Marshall JCM 800 amplifier but not with Philip Lexi amplifiers or the four input amplifiers. I really like the sound of those greenbacks with this aunt because he just have a great connection chemistry with that speaker cabinet and amplifier. So depending on if you got it modified or you just using a overdrive paddler distortion pedal a good analog delay pedal will suit your needs very fine we are looking for a good solid solo or lead tone.
I highly recommend this amplifier to anyone looking to get one of the best marshall tones in existence. This is a great amplifier if you're starting out playing the guitar this probably is to be a little bit more expensive than what you're looking for. I seen them go as low as of $1100 which is a good price for this wonderful guitar amplifier. I highly recommend this to anyone is looking for the ultimate Marshall tones and what's that classic Plexi tone. It's a solid amp for any guitarist out there.
