"I have a pretty extensive gear collection, and I’ve been at it for a while. I usually try to go for the older stuff – I pretty much have every vintage Marshall, every vintage Vox you’ll need. But on 15, you’re hearing a lot of Super Lead 100s, a ‘66 JTM45, an old AC30 Top Boost and an armload of vintage guitars."more
Let's face it: You can never quite go wrong with a Marshall since it's been the quintessential rock tone for what, 50-60 years now? This particular amp would be great if it wasn't for the outdated design, though. It looks and sounds good, but has only one measly channel. In order to push any drive out of it, you have to crank it all the way up to 11 and this motherfucker LOUD! There's no way a sane person would use it live without reamping it.
In a nutshell: The vintage points are cool and it's hot crunch sounds great in the studio, but there are a tons of newer amps that are capable of doing the same thing without bursting an eardrum.
