Would make a 5W Tube amp and make it so it has 3 Channels:
JCM800
JCM900
Clean
It would have a Miniature Sized Head and a cab only, so no combos and it would look like a mini halfstack. Price it around $199-$249 and I think it would sell CRAZY.

The Size would be about 2 feet tall, by 1.5 wide:

Noway!! It'd sound like crap, a Marshall ain't a Marshall unless its 100w and you can crank it. That's the only way to get the full Marshall sound.

Marshall used to make a 15W Tube mini-stack called the 'studio' or something like that but it's discontinued so I'm guessing it didn't sell very well. I've only ever seen one on the eBays.

If they re-released it though it would probably sell well now that small tube amps are the flavour of the month.

They make more money ripping people off with their SS amps anywa though, they probably get twice as much profit from the MG line than they would a small tube amp.

It would be tube, and you could still crank it.

Thats not what he means, you dont have much experience with Marshall, besides your MG, do you?

Honestly, I sometimes think that half of Epiphone's Valve Jr. sales come from people on UG recommending them (and modding them).

Hhahaha yeah, most threads I see now. "Get a tube!!!...now..."
Not that it's bad I like tube amps and hope to buy one myself.

But yeah the Valve Jr, Crate Palomino and the smaller Fender amps are probably doing well now.

The biggest problems with the suggested price point above come down to two things. First off, there is already competition in the "very small" multichannel stack department coming from Krank with a price point of about $600. Second is that the profit margin at the low price point would be almost nonexistent as multichannel class A/B amps are much more expensive to design and manufacture than the single channel class A amps that already inhabit the ~$200 price range. Not to mention the fact that you need to somehow stuff all the necessary controls for a three channel amp (I'm guessing a shared EQ to save space) into something that's just slightly over half the size of a regular Marshall.

From a business perspective, Marshall would be dumb not to at least match Krank's price and sell on the virtue of having a third channel and a Marshall logo. Either way, it would be hard to make a profit by selling something like this for less than about $500, and this isn't including advertising expenses, warranty claims, tech support training, test models, endorsements, etc.

If Marshall ever did something like this (which I hope they do) I wouldn't expect to see it hit the market for less than $700, though the $800 suggestion above sounds more on par.

Actually I think it would be better if Marshall made a "mini" JCM800. Basically a scaled down JCM800 preamp, with a tone and preamp volume control and a 1xEL84 poweramp volume control.

^^Yes! A single-ended EL84 Marshall; basically 'half' an 18 watt. At twice the price of a Valve Jr, it would still sell like crazy.

what people must know, is that we dont all stay in our bedrooms pretending we're good with our roland cubes with the mids at zero

some of us get out there and gig and gig in places where ever 30w valve isnt high enough

so these great legends of amps will always sell - hendrix, page - feck the p.a's - some people want pure old skool rockandroll - me def. included!

Yeah, that'd be a clever move from Marshall.

maybe, but i doubt theyd do something like that,considering theyre probably already cleaning up profit wise in the lower price range with the mgs and people thinking they need a marshall.

Well actually I like to mic amps if they're sent out thru the monitors. It's also a lot easier to get a good and even sound when you mice them.

I doubt I'd need more than 30 valves.

EDIT: I mean 30 watts, but I thoght it was so funny with 30 valves so it stays.

Hahaha, your right, it is better when you said 30 valves.


But on topic, it would be an awesome idea yes, but your price would be hugely incorrect, far far off. It would be more along 700-800 as said above, especially when compared to their MG/AVT/mode fours and all of their other low-end tripe which are priced (MG30 - $350, AVT100 - $629-900)

They could actually make a JCM800 preamp with single-ended EL84 power section technically speaking...

i would buy one if they made it. even if it was only a 5 watt. if it was 5 watts i could crank it at home without getting in too much trouble :P

you can use yellow jackets on a 50watt 800, therefore giving you like 13watts - dont sound the same, but its something!
#35
Well thing with Yellow Jackets is that they only work that good in theory.

The thing is that it won't still be the same as an amp made for only 2x EL84's.

Yeah.

Actually wonder how hard it would be to make a simplified JCM800 preamp, but with only a tone control?
