I'll play it before I give my opinion on it. I'm not going to consider it though, because I'm kind of poor at the moment.

It could have pretty decent potential, but I'm fearing that it'll turn into just bigger versions of the Haze series, which I personally disliked.

I wonder if they left some open room for modding, like Blackheart?

There's always room for modding. I just wish they would make something simpler. Even if these are decent amps for the price, I can't help but wonder why marshall doesn't make a version with eight knobs and no reverb or effects loop. That would be a terrific mod platform and would cost even less than these things that look like MGs with tubes.
#13
i'll try one out but i'm kinda skeptical about the whole "cheap tube amp" thing marshall is doin. they should try making the next jtm45 or slp (not a reissue, but a completely new amp with a simple circuit that has its own unique sound). i would look into one of those

EDIT: i can tell you this for sure, you wont see any pros using an ma

I like the idea of the cheaper tube amps. Not everyone can afford a $1500 Marshall tube head/combo.

Well that's the point of the MA either. The marketing target of the MA is all the broke teenagers who just want a big BR00TALZ half-stack without having to sell their arm for it.

You know a lot of people look to Marshall. And then a lot of people want a lot of features in one box. For a cheap price.

So at some point, products begin to suffer in one way or another, whether it be tone, build quality, or price.
#17
Yeah, that's the problem. These amps, unfortunately, might end up sacrificing tone, build quality, and price. I figure if they just make a simple amp they could at least nail one of those.

I buy a new marshall over a used one any day of the week if the price was comparable.

This is what we have been wanting from amp companys for quite some time.

The 50w combo is 750 US dollars at Samash.

I think that's what they actually tried to do with the Vintage Modern, but a lot of people just didn't like them that much. Idk, I thought they were pretty cool amps, but they're different from what your typical Marshall sounds like.


That being said I think that $750 for a mid-level tube amp is solid. It's not going to be cheap like a Bugera, Idk what you guys were expecting.

Well I was expecting between the 500-650ish range for the 50w combo at least.

The 50w head looks appealing with the real spring reverb tank. However it's still $700 and I have yet to play it.

I wish they'd just make something like the 1987x only half the price; I'd buy one of those in a heartbeat.

That would put it in the Bugera price range.

Have people already forgotten that before Bugeras came out, higher wattage tube combos in that price range were essentially unheard of?

Also, at $750, it's already at, what? Less than half the price of most Marshall tube HEADS? It's still a Marshall here, they're not going to be dirt cheap.
