Are you a Marshall amp person
« on: October 28, 2010, 03:43:12 AM »
I like Marshall amps, but these days I personally don't like them putting in Chinese made Celestion speakers in their amps  >:(

Well, I have a Marshall MG15CDR now and it's ok but I will probably replace it with something else as soon as I can. It's pretty limited and doesn't really produce the sound I want to get.

I am a Marshall person. I just like Marshall style of amps the best. More edgy sounding than the American style amps, I guess?

I like 'em too, but my preference is more the American "6V6" type sound. I like good cleans from an amp. I get my dirt from pedals.

My daughter had a Marshall 15CD solid state.  It really did sound good with a humbucker loaded guitar.  Not so good with a Strat.  I really like the Marshall Haze, but I can't believe they cost as much as they do when they are made in China.  Bugera is made in China to, but is half the price.

Marshall JMP1 with G Major in a rack
Great sounds and mostly programmable midi
Got to retube it

I'm also a "Fender man"
Blues Deluxe 1996

There is better amps, but for the price, I'm glad

I'm never happy with my sound in the rehearsal studio if there's a Marshall head and a 4x12, although one studio had a 1970s 50 watt combo - totally different - I really liked that one, but then I prefer the livelier sound of open back combos/speaker cabs.

I'm a fender guy.  I like lots of players who use marshall, but I need fendery sounds to emanate from my finger tips.

Having said that my OCD pedal does a fair impression of a classic marshall.

I love marshalls, they're just too darn expensive for me.  I've been really liking the Marshall Haze 40W, but not the price tag.  I used my daughter MG15CD, but it didn't sound good with single coils.  It abosolutely rocked when using my old Epiphone with Gibson BB Pro's in it.

I love most amps :) Sure I like Marshall but in all these years, no matter which amps we try (my brother and I) We always seem to come back to a Fender Bassman miked with some effects. It just gives a great semi dirty tone and handles pedals with much aplomb. Though I do love a Twin Reverb, probably my all time favorite amp. Everyone has their likes and dislikes, I like them all.

I tried the Marshall Haze a couple weeks ago.  Wasn't as impressed with it as I'd thought.  I was using a Gibson SG Classic, so it could of just been the guitar too.  I may get a Marshall in the future, but right now, I'm loving my new handmade amp a friend made.  23 Watts through a single KT88 power tube and two 12AX7.  Monster tone!  Blown two speaker through that amp!  YEA!
