    I do have a Boss GE-7 in front now. Having said that the Origin is my first Marshall & I knew it was going to be a learning curve & after I've seen so many videos of the Origin & then the SV20 I figured to really nail that 70's AC/DC tone the SV20 was the way to go but I did & do have my concerns. I've never found any isolated tracks before processing of Ang or Mal using the JTM, Super Lead, or JMP. I only heard people using them some sounded sound on & some not so much.

    He actually said “ But neither the origin or SV20 are high gain amps and neither were the plexis”.
    The SV pretty much nails the plexi tones. It starts to break up at about 4 on the dial (rig dependent) but it’s not so far off then diming it, volume wise.

    Yes definitely. On High Treble, with a Les Paul, you get break up pretty much from the get go, and beyond 4 on either volume pots, volume actually doesn't go up very much (if at all), you mostly get more saturation and compression.
    Gotta mention that to me, unlike others, the sweet spot is at 7-ish on both volumes. Diming every controls makes the amp to wooly and fuzzy for my taste (I don't like Normal volume being over 8, again, too wooly and fuzzy). You don't get as much of the ability to get back to almost clean on a single coil at that point either.

    Do you have the newer silver or the older black/ blue ones? The mxr is kind of unique as they have a volume/level control and a gain control. Seems like that gain control could really help with the origin or sv 20. How do you use yours?

    This how I have been running it, I have moved the sliders around more than once, but this has been my favorite position, for both the origin, and my dsl40c’s!
    Cheers Mitch

    I know neither are high gain amp. But correct me if I'm wrong the 1959SLP is a Super Lead & Marshall made the SV20 after the 1959SLP. No?

    A Jcm800 Studio can get all those tones,......and many more. From Led Zeppelin to Joe Walsh to Paul Kossoff to AC/DC, etc., etc., etc.

    It’s almost amazing the tones that are available in my Jcm800 Studio, I seem to be finding a new one every time I play!

    Much more versatile than I thought back when I was ordering it.

    I just found this out by accident with a 2525. I always assumed the jubs were metal amps but boy was I wrong.
