« Awesome amp!!! »

Published on 11/07/11 at 11:05
Marshall amps are probably the finest amplifiers for the hard rock and metal type guitar players. They have a great tone and are very addicting to play. These are probably the most iconic and easily recognizable amplifiers and all of music. The only thing to come close is maybe a Fender bass van or twin deluxe but nothing stands the test of time or the hard rock feeling tone as a Marshall amplifier.

UTILIZATION


These amplifiers are very well designed and sound phenomenal we really crank up. Unfortunately the amplifier to find a lot of volume to really find that good sweet spot. Unless you use an attenuator and you really have to crank these things up to get those tubes burning and firing hot to get that sweet British flavored tone.

SOUNDS


The Marshall amplifier sits very well in a band mix. Probably will be because it has a very good mid range voicing due to the EL 34 power tubes. This amplifier sounds really great if you get it modified to get even more again and saturation. The Marshall amplifier in general is a great platform to be modified and built upon. Many guitarists have used these over the last few decades because it has a great sweet warm tone that is very complementing to the band next.

OVERALL OPINION


You could find these guitar amplifiers pretty much anywhere. They're extremely popular but depending on what year you buy it will determine how valuable it can be. There's a lot of boutique amplifier that have copied and redone the Marshall flavor which sometimes sounds a lot better but you're going to pay more in premium prices to get that. These guitar amplifier sound great if you use a good overdrive pedal to throw in front of to get that front end of the amplifier really cooking. So if you have a boss SG one pedal or a tube screamer from Ibanez and you're going to get a really good hard rock tone with that combination.
