Marshall at it's best
Stephen Mcphail, 08.06.2018
First I would like to thank Thomann for all their help & advice on my journey to finding the right amp, they just cannot help you enough, kudos to all of them.
This amp is superb, Marshall at it's best.
I have an American Professional Jaguar, on the clean channel it brings out the best in this beautiful guitar, crisp & clear tones to a subtle crunch & everything in between, the classic crunch gives you THE classic sound of a fender guitar & a Marshall amp at it's finest.
The Ultra gain channel gives some great Les Paul / SG type tones, plus the presence & tone switch give some great nuances as well.
I have used this in my bedroom on the half power setting & it still sounds great at really low volume.
I have an outside barn with a purpose built stage & I have had this amp cranked up as loud as possible, & man is this thing LOUD !!!!!
Loud without losing any sound quality at all.
You won't need a tube screamer or any such pedal here, the only negative thing I can say is that the digital reverb is not that good, but to be honest I have not come across any amp with a good reverb. I have a Marshall RF-1 Reflector Reverb pedal that does that.
The two way footswitch is a great for switching channels & works perfectly.
The amp is solidly built & looks fantastic.

Very good product for the price. Very versatile.
Good clean sound for a marshall typa of amp and also very good overdrives.
The clean channel (green mode) as a bit lower volume then the others but you can compensate that with the 2 master volumes, so thats not a deal-breaker.
Also, if you use buffered by-pass pedals on the FX loop, when you turn it on you will notice a slith decrease on the volume aswell. For me, I keep the FX Loop always on and just turn on/off the pedals I want to use so that is not a problem.
If you like to use dirt pedals, this amps is also a great for that cuz it accepts pedals very well.
The key trick for this amp is very simple: the louder it gets, the better it sounds. However, is very easy to dial good tones in any volume, since bed-room practice levels to any live gig.
I have this amp for about 6 months now and I have nothing negative to point out. still in love with it. highly recomended.

This is the amp you want
WouterH, 04.04.2019
This amp is just great. I really love it. The sound is so deep en the features are great. With the footswitch you can easily switch between channels on different volumes. Yes it's heavy, but that's what you get from the massive 12" speaker. It's worth it. (i've placed it on a board with wheels for in my living room)

Really good for the price.
siggiarabi, 07.07.2018
Use:
I use it at home and occasionally at band practice.

Pros:
Some good features, amazing sound, good distortion and amazing cleans.

Cons:
Pretty heavy, reverb isn't easily heard unless maxed out, tone shift doesn't do anything immediately noticeable.
