Anybody have any experience with these? I have checked out the You Tube videos were they compare them but still can't decide which one sounds best. I am a fan of late 60s early 70s Marshall sound, but in the videos the JMP-1 sounds so shrill out of all of them. Which one do you think sound the best? I kinda wanna buy one just to say I own a real Marshall and I play in a bedroom situation so I like the low wattage.

I think saying that you own a Marshall is pretty meaningless because there's so many kids who claim they own a real Marshall when really they only own an MG.

The benefit of the low wattage is that it makes the amp a lot lighter, more compact and much cheaper in price. But attaining a great tone at a lower volume is not necessarily something that small amps do, contrary to very popular belief. It's a misconception driven by marketing and "I heard from the internet that..."

I'm not a Marshall fan really. But out of the ones in that video, I liked the JTM1.

I am 50 so it not about saying I own a Marshall to anybody. For one thing I don't really have anyone to say that to. It is more about being a super fan of the people who owned Marshalls and having a little piece of that.

i recently got the jcm 800 1 watt head, with a mesa boogie 1X12 mini rectifier cab, and i'm very pleased with it.
it is great for many styles, with single coiled guitars it has great cleans and blues tones, and with humbucker equipped guitar its great also.
its really nice to have the ability to get the tones from the famous 80's bands that everybody loves, and not loud in the bedroom.

you may also want to consider a SL-5. i think it sounds better than most of that youtube clip you posted, and does the low volume thing well with the 1 watt switch.

they can be had used for $650 if you're patient and look around. just another option to consider.

I would look into getting a well-maintained yet preowned Marshall head. I have a DSL50W head and it's great, they regularly go for under 375 pounds used. It can be loud, but honestly using the master volume you can get it down to bedroom volumes easily and still hold great tone.

I'm very interested in that one in particular. Would love to try it one of these days
