Had a couple of amps over the years from el cheapo's to the better stuff. Had a Line 6 Spider before the Marshall and it did not do the job very well.

It sounds very good, punchy and clear, is able to produce some great raw tone whether using a clean or distorted sound. The 12ax7 valve in the preamp stage helps to give it a lovely chunky warm tone that the tube amps of the 60's were famous for, and of course, and it… Read Full Review
