Finally found my amp...
Mellotronic, 22.02.2020
Hi there, just a very quick notice on the ORIGIN 50 head that I've recently acquired. First off all, I'd like to mention that I am one of those lads getting older and wealthy enough to buy gear that I like. This means that when it does not suits my needs, either it goes back to Thomann or straight on second hand market. I am basically a studio warrior (whenever my job and familly let me) with I guess an acquired taster for things that sounds neat. This amp is the pinacle of what I was looking for: a mid gain, loud and pedal friendly full tube amp. I actually own Orange, Fender and even Boss gears (dark terror, tweed deluxe and Katana 212), I've played lots of Marshall through the years and I know what to expect from a decent amp: versatility, lots of headroom and balanced with my guitar collection. This one gets everything! regarding the pros, the amp is very loud, simple to tune and gets that sizzling Marshallesque sound from 70's (think of Mick Ronson's 200). it literally loves pedals and Les paul's classic 57's but does also a great job with P90 and Telecaster's PUs. The cons, well, it is very loud even with the 5W attenuator, this beast must be tamed for studio and bedroom usage (the Harley Benton's passive attenuator is the way to go). Some will complain about the lack of a built in reverb, but we all know that built in reverbs are usually lame (either DSP or "faux spring") if you want a spacier sound, just plug your best reverb in the effect loop and there you go... For a bit more of 400euros with a decent power attenuator, you cannot be wrong. Thanks me later!

pros and cons
Philip.S, 16.05.2020
CONs
1) It's too loud when on the low setting, especially for bedroom use. You can get a quiet clean sound but to drive it, you have to make it quite loud
2) annoyingly bassy. I'm a blues player and sometimes I like bassy, Jazzy tones. but even then, the bass is too unruly. I normally play with the bass control either at 0 or at 9 o'clock.
PROs
1) BEAUTIFUL overdriven tones, especially with a boost pedal.

2) lots of headroom, handles clean tones extremely well, you could probably amplify an acoustic with it

3) Really nice EQ controls, I LOVE the tilt control, the eq is super versatile, like I said though, it's too bad about how loud the bass is.

4) Looks STUNNING, it's really something in person

Review after a few months use
John Gilbride, 04.04.2020
Having used this head both for jamming with bands and in tracks I have produced, I can honestly say that it is fantastic. I play a wide range of music, from Steely Dan style jazz rock to Meshuggah style low tuned metal.
Its clean to moderate crunching tones are delicious, the way it breaks up is incredibly pleasing, and when you stick a Les Paul in front of it, the magic starts to happen, chuck on that bridge pickup, and you're set.
Its not a high gain modern metal amp, but with determination, a graphic eq pedal and a cheap OD pedal, Ive been able to get to perform pretty much the way I want to, but with it's own unique character going on.
Pros: Its packed full of tone, SUPER LOUD, and has enough little features in it to be quite versatile.

Cons: It does take a lot of experimentation and getting used to the controls to dial in your tones exactly the way you want to, and it is a little heavy.

Marshall Quality, Shame About The Sound
Stephen6002, 23.05.2020
I bought this in an attempt to split the weight of my guitar rig, currently a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV. Using an A/B switch, it was easy to compare the two. Sadly, the Marshall lacked the lovely full sound of the Fender. I even tried connecting the speaker of the Fender to the Marshall and vice versa. It improved the Marshall marginally, but the Fender still sounded better, even through the separate cabinet that I was using for the Marshall.
With tone settings Bass:10 Middle:10 Treble:0 Presence:0 the Marshall sound still lacked body and depth. Increasing Treble or Presence just made it shrill. Using the Tilt control, the sound just went from woolly to ear-piercingly shrill with nothing in between that I liked. Engaging the gain boost helped a bit if you have it on all the time, you have no extra boost left for soloing.
Disappointed!
