    Been waiting for a local shop to get one in. One salesperson said he heard Marshall was discontinuing them. First I have heard of that but could be true I guess.

    Anywho I think I am just going to pull the trigger on one and just get it from Musicians Friend who have a 45 day money back guarantee. Like I said I wanted to try it out first. I tried the Origin 20 head and was not impressed but most every review I have read and video I have watched the 50 seems like the perfect amp for me. People have also said the 20 and 50 are 2 very different amps.

    So to my Marshallites who own a Origin 50 head. Is it really as pedal friendly as people are saying? Does it have that Plexi type grind when you crank it?

    Discontinuing, really... I sure hope that’s a rumour, they are good amps.

    I have 2 of the 50H’s , so I guess you could say I like them.
    I have a clip where I am going to tone test a joyo ultimate drive.
    But I don’t turn the pedal on until 2/3’rds of the way through, I will find it and bring it, to give you an idea if it can get close to the plexi tone you are after!
    Cheers Mitch
