This. Me too.
I am a marshall man
And I'm a Fender man. That's OK; there's plenty of room for both of us.
Yes, that's a real guitar amp made here:
Check out his guitars:
Not sure if any of them sound good, but very unique stuff there.
As I said previously, my main amps are Fender. If I could have any amp however, it'd be a Magnatone Twilighter Stereo.
I have a 63 AC30 top boost, a recent AC4 head and matching cab, but really I am a Mesa Boogie IV or Twin guy. And best amp I have ever heard was an Ampeg Reverbrocket, old one. Stunning
Many Marshalls are great amps, some I don't like.
I currently own a JVM410 and it's an awesome amp with so many tones that sound great. Extremely versatile stock, even better modded.
I also have a Fender and recently a Vox, but they can't do what the Marshall can. And on its own without pedals it can cover all types of music. My Fender and Vox can't.
I love the clean and reverb on the Fender, the Vox sounds great clean and starting to break up.
My Marshall sounds great clean to raging distortion
Marshalls are also underrated when it comes to cleans
Really, you can't afford peanuts? Look for a "Lead 100 Mosfet".
Sure, but Marshall has become synonymous with hard rock/metal sounds and imagery. The average Gretsch player doesn't want to know.
Good stuff. Takes me right back to Art school.
I have a tough time finding prices or an ordering page. The double horn ceiling speaker is a measly $36000 bucks though, so not sure I should even bother.
It's all artsy and priced accordingly.
Yesterday I found out how good my Gretsch sounded through the highest gain channel on my Marshall. Then I decided to play my Les Paul for the first time since buying the Gretsch.
Yesterday I was a very happy boy.
Respect the brand; but not for me!!
thanks I needed that! (laughing hysterically..)
I always liked Fender. They have a certain sound that appeals to me. When I was 13, I played through a Marshall Mercury, but that was then.
Actually, last year I bought a Vox AC4Tv. I modded it with a celestion Greenback 10" speaker and vintage tubes. 20lbs of awesomeness!
Not a fan of Marshall amps myself, but if it works for you, go for it.
Marshall offers many flavors, but it wouldn't be correct to pigeonhole them as only raging distortion amps. The JVM Series offers everything from prestine cleans to raging distortions. And regardless of what guitar, there is a beautiful sound in there with little tweaking. And the reverb is actually very nice...Marshall calls it a studio quality reverb and I wouldn't disagree. ANY Gretsch can and will sound stellar thru any of the JVM Series. I had a JVM205C and I miss the versatility this amp had to offer. They're not cheap, but neither is Mesa Boogie, custom Fender, handwired Vox, etc.
I also had a 1974X. Another Marshall I really, really regret selling. But THAT amp is absolutely phenomenal and in a whole different league IMO.

I played through one (The "Rocket" model) at the late Ken Fischer's house in Colonia, NJ (~September '93). It sounded great, through a pair of vintage Celestion Blue alnicos. It is a combination all of the best VOX circuits from '60 - '64.
My main do-it-all gigging amp is a Mesa Lone Star Special. Lots of options, very versatile. As close as I'll come to a perfect gigging amp (because it made me quit looking).
The times it doesn't make the gig are those when I just gotta have my Marshall 1974X. Gads, what an amp! Not as versatile as the LSS; still it is hardly one-dimensional. I swear there are knots in my shoulders that release when I hear that Marshall warmed up.
And to you guys that sold your 1974X's, a sincere thank you from me! (I bought mine used)
