I hope it is. I always wondered why Marshall never thought of a modeling amp. I mean if they modeled an amp after an old plexi a hot rodded plexi and jcm800 I would buy it.

it models only marshall amps ? hahaha.


It would still not be worth buying compared to competition that models other amps as well.

I feel another rift in the space time continuum approaching. Marshall are famous for making valve amps - we know what happened last time they tried to diversify don't we? I predict that "photos or it's an MG" will be replaced by "photos or it's a JMD".

I don't really like modeling amps. As I understand, they're pretty much impossible to make with all-analog pre-amp circuitry, and is thus digital. Even the Line6 Spider Valve only has a valve power amp, which does have a large effect on the overall tube amp characteristics, but I still don't like digital sounds all that much. They're OK for practice amps, though.

I think I saw somebody on the marshallforums with what looked like one of these. At the time it wasn't even up on their site, so i have no clue how they got their hands on one (Or even a rip off Marshall built like it, because nobody knew about it)

They said it had a hybrid preamp and tube power amp I think.

The key is the price.


The problem with marshall is they make inferior non-tube products and try to sell them for premium price using their brand name.


If they're going to make modeling amps they should start pricing them the right way.


They cannot expect people to pay more for their products just because it has a marshall brand name on them when they're competing in a market dominated by other well known players who don't even dare to charge purely by brand name.

They will have a tough time unseating VOX and Line6 in the modeling sector.
#12
OK, I just heard on another forum that they will be like the JMP1 preamp + JFX1 FX processor + EL34 poweramp in one.

This is crazy. Marshall has made some great solid state amps before the introduction of the MG. And to whoever said that Marshall hasnt made a good amp since the 90s, the DSL and JVM sound pretty great if you get them set up right

Im going to wait to try the new amp before I dismiss it as total crap

stop hating - the vintage modern, DSL series and JVM 4 series are pretty good (JVM to a lesser extent, but its so ****ing versatile I like it)

Even so, I agree this looks less than promising oh well, lets wait and see what its like...

Quote by WtrPlyr
To much cheap practice-amp crap lately from Marshall. They'd better put out some quality re-issues or some quality new models.

The JVM was put out not too long ago and thats a great amp as is the class 5.

Exactly my thought.

They didn't make good decisions by making the Class 5 a "little Plexi" which you have to crank to get distortion or by making the entry-level MA series that high-wattage.

So, built in Delay, Reverb and what looks like Resonance to me. To be honest, i'm not looking forward to it. But, if it sounds good, it could be a very nice practice/small gig amp. Hopefully the valve stage will make it sound a bit better cranked. Here's to hoping.
#26
it doesnt look too bad.

that switch on the right looks interesting.

No.

There are some great modelling amps. The line6 vetta for example or even the vox valvetronix has some good sounds in it.


Also this marshall hate needs to stop , it's the stupidest thing. No other forum has this kind of bandwagoning.
#29
You people seriously need to stop all the hate. It's rediculous. Ever since they realeased theMG all you do is bash them. You guys haven't even played this amp so stop saying it's going to suck and be terrible. It gets really annoying

The Class 5 is a great blues amp and works the same way as pretty much any classic Marshall in regards to gain, except that you can get it at a much lower volume, and the MA series seemed pretty promising from the demo of it. Whats wrong with having a high watt amp? Bugera, B-52, and the Valve King are similar in that respect, yet they dont get the same level of unadulterated hate.

What does GGA play that makes them loath Marshall so much? They work well for pretty much every genre of music

I for one am proud of marshall. they're actually coming out with new stuff. I'm pretty excited for this. it's a tube power amp and a 12ax7. so what this sound like to me is as JMP1 in combo form. which is really freaking cool


EDIT: this marshall bandwagoning needs to stop. Marshall makes some of the best amps in the buisness period. half of you can't afford a real marshall (understandable) and a quarter haven't even played one. you're just jumping on the wagon STOP!!

I think they sound pretty good. I hate basing an opinion on a video, but it looks to be a move in the right direction for Marshall IMO. Any word on release dates/prices in the States? I'd really like to try one out in person.
#35
Yeah. Those demos give me hope. I hope its as good in person!

And I don't understand all the anti-marshall bandwagoning either...I like Marshall.

Marshall hasn't done anything terribly interesting since they put a master volume on the metal panel sometime in the late 70's or maybe the jubilee. Somehow I doubt that after two to three decades of 'meh' they'll suddenly produce something awesome.

What I don't understand is why they modelled stuff like Marshall's OD pedals (which aren't that great), Haze and Mode Four.

They should have modelled more stuff like the JCM 900, Silver Jubilee, Plexis, JTM, ...

MG with different models? No thanks.

It could be a hybrid.

why does everybody say any new marshall amp that comes out is an "MG with.. <whatever features the amp may have>"? I mean, the current version of the MG series isn't a bad practice amp at any rate, it's just tied to the reputation of it's predecessors which were abysmal. If the JMD is a modelling amp that's about the same quality as the MG4 series, then it's probably a decent amp.
