    LOL! I was thinking the same thing. Watch all of you get the Origin thinking its the next holy grail and end up being a holy turd. I have a modded Bugera 1960 and I am sure it would kill it. I just got a new 412 cab and it just screams through it now. I had no interest in getting the Origin. At least the 1960 is in the true plexi format which is part of the whole idea. Why mess with the original format and just make a real looking plexi yes from Vietnam and price it fairly. Its that simple. If Bugera can do Marshall can too!

    Fun to see people bashing on a $600 amp not sounding like a $3000 amp.

    I’m staring to think IF Marshall came out with a reissue JMP MV and/or Plexi made in England as close to the old ones as possible for 800.00 bucks people would find some reason to bash them too...:facepalm: Marshall can’t win:shrug:

    Just curious... Did you by the Bugera modded or did you modify it because you didn’t like the stock sound?

    I got the Origin 50 Head because I wanted a vintage sounding Marshall amp at a decent price that would also be a great pedal platform. That is exactly what I got. I have had it since Friday and I love it. I think it sounds more like a 1974 or 2061 though. Mid gainy, great tone, loud as fuck... punch you in the gut loud. Definitely not a dud, IMHO.

    I was not looking for a Plexi clone, and really, that is not what Marshall built here, If they did they probably would have mentioned it. I think people need to be aware of this when they consider buying this amp.

    I’m sure he will get around to one but if you really want to hear what it can do just order one from one of the big box retailers. They all have great return policies. Get it home plug it into a 4x12 and crank it. Then and only then will you know if it is for you or not.

    Haven’t we all been there... we listen to a great demo of an amp or pedal and it sounds great so we order it, get it home, and, no matter if turns out that the product is great or if it sucks, it always sounds different than it did in the demo?

    To get a true representation of the sound of the Origin, you have to play it.

    Chuck,
    I've heard your sound and playing and somewhat followed the gear you been through and gravitated towards. I think if you try one of these,you'll come up with the same impressions that I and "SpHj" had, though maybe a different way to describe them. I don't think you'll like it one bit, but would love to hear your first hand impressions, as your clips have shown me that you totally GET IT! See below.


    Well Sir,
    You describe it as "artificial note decay" though I noticed and might describe it more as sounding almost "solid state-ish" and sort of harsh in that transition zone from clean to dirty and then dirty to clean. I think we are are describing the same issue. It's kinda funny that the cleans are pretty OK and the driven, distorted sound is pretty good. It's just that "in between" that sounds kinda ratty and somewhat "coarse and rough!" FWIW, that "in between zone" is where I tend to spend most of my playing time! I got a 20 watt unit, but what you describe is just what I found with the 20 also!
    Just Sayin'
    Gene

    Played my 50w last night at band practice. Sounded pretty damn good. Even on 10w mode it was too loud.

    The Origin is definitely starting to grow on me.

    I feel your pain. I bought the 20H, used in in one rehearsal and I've returned it for a refund. I was hoping for the DSL green channel type sound but I found it harsh and thin. I really liked it on its own but it really didn't hit the mark when in the mix for me

    ......so all of you who said you want something new from Marshall didn't really want something new? ..you just wanted the same old sound so you can complain it's just the same out of date sound as before? ....and now when it doesn't sound like before, you want the old back?
    You wanted something new. Here's something new. .be careful what you wish för. ..If you want "plexi", just by one. ..they've been in production since the mid sixties. ..
