Marshall AFD100 : Video
Sounds pretty fuckin good.
But it's not bad for a Slash sig..
nassssssty tone i cant wait to grab a head or 2
saw him last week in toronto,, he was playing 3 full stacks of the afd 100 and his new sig cabs,,, too commercial and kinda gay lookin IMO but ill still buy it cuz it has slashs name ont it... lol
It sounds pretty good... I like the idea of the power control to lower the volume, I wonder if you lose any tone when you lower the volume...
Refresh my bad memory. Is this a full production run for the public to buy, or is it a limited number made? And what is the price? Does a 3rd mortgage, or major selling off of my other gear need to be made to afford one?
I think that thing sounds great. Even if you don't like slash, you have to admit it sounds good. Notice it doesn't sound thin when that dude plays it.
Chris George makes that thing sound great. Heck, he makes every Marshall sound great. I agree that it has more "beef" then what I think most folks were expecting.
My main issue is the same though: I want to hear it live! We have flat out proven with a few of these contests and polls that the recorded sound is rubbish. It is the live tone that actually matters.
From the recording it seemed that the power scaling or whatever held the tone as it went down. However, as he was coming back up with it you could clearly tell where the amp seemed to open up. Of course that could be made an excuse that it was the mic not being sensitive enough or whatever but it was neat.
So, I reckon I like it. I have a feeling that the price point will be my deciding factor on if I get one. I could care less about sig equipment and I am betting that I could get a reissue 1959 for what they are going to be selling that thing for.
I assume we're talking about the Chris George vid? I'm not gonna lie, that sounds pretty bad ass...I haven't really been following this amp but damn
I think it sounds great. CG has the best job in the world.
Thomann lists the AFD 100 with 1399€ which is almost the same as the 2203x.
yep... just watched it.... and i like it... i don't give a damn it has firmware and other gizmo's, it just sounds great... damn... i have GAS
normally those vids from marshall aren't representing the amps that well... so if on vid the thing sounds like this it can be even better in real life...
i've heard prices are a bit higher then what JVM 410H's are being sold for... over here in europe around €1500,- 2300 units will be produced and a couple of limited editions
i guess it's speaker related... you can turn down the power to approx. 0.1 watt and still have powertube saturation... but the speakers won't be pushed to oblivion anymore
To me it seemed like the mike picked up more room sound as the volume was lowered, which stands to reason. It did sound more present and direct sounding as the volume went up but there was less room sound (do to more direct sound) and, as Dooley said, speakers moving = better tone.
Got to admit, while it doesn't sound anything more than a cranked 800, it does sound real good in this vid!!
but now the main thing... the whole idea behind the amp... have they nailed it?
has it the AFD-feel?
i have to admit, when i hear chris playing it, it very reminds me of slash... so i think they have done a pretty good job on this, imo
He has it pretty wide open.
The lowering of the power does appear to be bringing the sound level down. You can hear the strings on the guitar as he turns it down.
P.S. Yeah, it's pretty raunchy.
sounds really good to me and I'd add it sounds more or less like soldano or something like it.... any opinions?
Ok, I hate to admit this (seeing as how it's a piece of signature gear), but that Chris George video was terrific. Seriously, that amp sounds freaking great. Christ, it even sounded nice at low volume ... sure, it opened up as the numbers increased, but nothing to sneeze at for a variety of both gig and home volume levels. I won't be able to bring myself to buy one due to the Slash logo (yeah, I have a weird hang up w/that cartoon), but if they put out a "non-Slash" model (say, a reverse of what they did w/the SJ & then the Slash head?) I'd be all over it.
God, I wish this wasn't a "Slash" amp
I saw two speaker cables going to the head, he may be running it a 4 ohms stereo, which is pretty hot for a Marshall.
I'd love to run that parrallel my DSL100
