Origin is a good amp series, but if it's time for it to end then at least Marshall fans have what I think are some very good amps to choose from in the Studio Classic and Studio Vintage series.
Still, it makes me wonder whether Marshall will offer something new in place of Origin or just ride the Studio series a little longer. I have absolutely no inside info, but it wouldn't surprise me if something new comes out soon.
Whatever happens, the price reduction for Origin is attractive. I liked Origin more as a lead/solo voice rather than rhythm, which would still draw a lot of interest. Problem is, Studio Classic and Studio Vintage are so good that it becomes a really hard decision whether to spend that money on Origin.
Yeah I always wanted a 1987x but it was too much. I waited 20 years for them to make a mini plexi. My dream came true. It will be worth paying a little more for something I love verse believing I like something and really don't in the end. Just to buy something because its cheap.
"Told the wife" Shark?
Hmmmm not good!
I don't tell her anymore. I am not getting another one this year as the holidays approach. I will be good and save up. I am still paying off the 800. I need to clear that first. One thing at a time!
Price wise the Origin is cheap, but in the tone and reliability, it’s up there with all the other great amps, granted they have not been around 20 years, but other than the wiring of the speaker outs.
What have the internet cowboys been complaining about??
Sure hasn’t been any failures.
I wonder what the 5 watt combos are like? For $249.. thats cheap. I wonder how they would compare to say the class 5? I think the origin has a loop so that's a plus. The thing I didn't like about the class 5c I had was it was so bassy, even with the control at zero.
If the Origins are going then, I bet Marshall has something up for the next Vietnam made amp.
I'm thinking maybe something like an 800/900 type amp with two channels.
They have all that Astoria technology, they could mash something up out of that from Vietnam and offer something new and cheap. I'm still thinking they may come out with a mini JVM in the new year, keep riding the Studio series which isnt a bad plan.
Is this just all a Black Friday sale???
You didnt have it long enough to break it in, did you plug it into a cab to see what it could do? You've got so many good amps already I dont see you needing this any way.
No I did not plug it into a cab because I wanted a combo. I did put Mullard 12AX7s in it which helped a bit BUT four things I did not like (1) it still sounded thin, (2) it looked cheap (3) it looked way too small for a 1 speaker combo next to my other 1X12s and (4), I didn't want to deal with 10" speakers, buying an trying. I am more sure a head into a 12" speaker cab would sound better but thats not what I wanted.
I think so.
But the origin series seems to do the vintage thing quite well, the SV studio line gets it better, but I am not off loading my Origin’s for it.
I have one. It’s pretty good for home jamming. I don’t find it bassy at all. If anything it’s a little bright. It’s a lot like the class 5 except more versatile. Like the Class 5 five, you have to turn it up to sound good and it gets loud in a hurry.
If they had only put a 10” speaker in those 5 watters lm sure more folks would’ve bought them. Same thing with the SC20 and the SV20,....they should come with 12” speakers imo.
Just from a practical point of view, people prefer to see a 12” speaker in a combo when they’re paying $1500.
I wonder is you can stuff a 10” speaker in that 5 watt Origin? I’ve never seen the amp so l don’t know.
Origins are great for the price.
I love my SV combo with 10" speaker.
I have the SV 1x12 cab too.
Would love to see a JTM in studio version. Even a JTM 45 stuffed into a Studio sized box.
Hmmmm, wonder if it would fit. And if it could breath enough not to overheat.
Can you put one on layaway?
