Better QC please.Danjel on 21.02.2021
After 1 month the amp blows fuses as soon as I turn the amp on. It is most likely a tube issue which should not be a problem on an amp in this price caliber. The amps are hand built in California and when working is the best amp I have ever owned. The amp is a true masterpiece of an amp, but QC could be a little bit better when matching and checking the tubes at the ”factory”.

What an awesome sounding ampThomas on 08.01.2021
I've owned tons of amps during my something 40 years as a guitar player. Some of the many amps I own or have owned are Bogner Ecstasy 101B, Bogner Helios Eclipse, Diezel Herbert MKII, Diezel Herbert MKIII, Mesa Boogie Mark V, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Reborn, Cornford MK50h, Elmwood M90, ENGL Fireball 100, ENGL Invader II, ENGL Powerball II, ENGL Retro Tube 100, Marshall JMP 2203 from 1980, Marshall 25/50, Marshall SLP1959 and 3 modded Marshalls.
I can hands down say that this is the best sounding amp I've ever owned or played. Don't be fooled by it only having two channels. This is a Swiss army knife Marshall sound galore. If you like the Marshall character then this is it. This do it all from the shimmering Plexi clean to 80's metal, all without the use of any extra pedal in front. You want blazing Plexi? You got it. You want 80's hardrock and metal, you got it? You want jazz, blues, rock or even fusion? No problem. This amp cover it all.
My favorite guitar sounds are from George Lynch, Warren DeMartini, Dann Huff, John Sykes and Steve Vai from the albums Eat it & Smile, Passion & Warfare and Alien Love Secrets. This amp nail all those tone without a pedal. All but one. To get John Sykes saturated sound I use a slight midboost using the Suhr Koko Boost with the switch to the left. Then it nails that tone too.
It records well and sits well in the mix too.
If you're after an amp with the best Marshall sound ever done, look know further. This is it. Best amp I've ever own. A keeper.
