    Perfect for what what I want, and sounds totally hooligan. It feels and reacts like a proper amp. As a lot of reviews mention, it might sound better with a larger speaker. But for my use I'm happy to compromise, saving space and not being too loud.

  • George Gardiner


    Astonishing sonic performance on both channels and good DI recording option (remember to use mono-mono cable).

  • John Page


    Blown away by this little amp, incredibly gutsy for a 1 Watt unit. Surprisingly loud even on the 0.1 Watt setting with the gain/volume cranked up. Don't be fooled by the miniature size, this little Marshall is a beast in disguise! There are of course things that could be better. The digital reverb, while adequate doesn't compare to a spring unit in my opinion. That said it sounds okay at low levels. Also there's no headphones out socket. On the plus side, the effects loop is a real bonus on such a small amplifier and the emulated output is brilliant if you want to connect to a mixing desk. The chunky foot-switch for channel selection is really positive in use unlike some I could mention. All in all this amplifier is an excellent choice for anyone looking for practice/bedroom amp that won't overly annoy the neighbours.

    Great sounding Marshall amp, perfect for a bedroom or flat. At full volume, or at full gain I think the neighbours may still complain! And small enough to hide it from the other half who insisted “you don’t need an amp”.

  • Mat Smith


    I have two small children and needed something small and unobtrusive. I was concerned this would be too quiet. I needn't have worried. This is plenty loud enough for a bedroom, small flat. The Ultra Gain channel is great but u prefer the Classic Gain. I've tried this with single coils (Tele), humbuckers (SG) and a semi-acoustic Gretsch. Different tones produced by each and the sound breaks up at different points for each. I can definitely recommend to anyone who wants the Marshall all-tube tone in a small box.
