The Marshall JMP 1975 is a guitar amp head that is tube based and gives you 100 watts of power. It has two 1/4 inch connections in the front for either hi or lo input and has a speaker output in the back so you can send this amp to a head. It has two switches for power and for standby and has a slew of parameters including volume, gain, EQs, and reverb. It is a pretty versatile amp in terms of different sounds and since the parameters are pretty standard as far as what would be seen on other amps, anyone can use it easily.


The configuration of the Marshall JMP 1975 amp is really easy to follow, as all of the knobs are clearly labeled and easy to find. Anyone who has any experience with guitar amps should have no problems learning how to use this, as it is very basic. Getting a good sound is easy as the inherent tone on the Marshall JMP 1975 is great, whether you are looking for dirty or clean sounds. I don't have the manual for this amp, but you really don't need it.


The sound quality of the Marshall JMP 1975 amp is great for all types of music, but I like to use it mostly for rock and it especially excels when using it for harder rock. Both the clean and distortion sounds are awesome, but this amp makes its living cranking out great sounding distortion tones. The variety of parameters allows you to zero in on your tone pretty acutely and it is always a pleasure to work with this because it always seems to sound good.


I've been using the Marshall JMP 1975 amp for about two years and have found it to be a great amp for recording. While I haven't used it for live shows, I'm sure that it would make a great amp for gigging as well because it can really get loud. I'm always happy with the sounds I get when I throw a Shure SM57 and Sennheiser 421 up on this amp's cabinet. The price of this amp varies, but you can find some pretty reasonable ones out there if the priced right. This is a great overall amp and is perfect for the guitar player who wants to play rock and roll, and play it loud!
