    Um, yeah, for all intents and purposes, it is kind of like a Vintage Modern. That's not a bad thing.

    At $650 US for a 50 watt head what are you expecting? A 50 watt EL34 power section at that price means early Christmas for me.

    If you (and others) cared enough about where it was made, you just might have the dough to afford one

    I would love to buy domestic made products and not support outsourcing them to Asia. However this is not how the globalized world works my friend.

    Plus I am still a student. When I get my degree and finally earn some regular and proper cash we can talk.

    This amp line is aimed squarely at Blackstar, no two ways about it.

    Bletchley, like Gibson USA/Nashville, very soon will be custom shops only.

    Small, passionate amp builders like Suhr & Metro are the new "old" Marshall

    LOL if only it were that simple.

    Buy domestic, pay more for the same shit.

    I just saw Marshall’s product demo. Origin sounds ok. Honestly my DSL40C seems to have all those tones, and imho does them as well, if not better. I’ve swapped to a Eminence Swamp Thang and put in EHX medium plate el34s. IMHO turned my so so amp into a beast.
    Maybe these will do well, who knows. I have my doubts. At least they put something new out.
    I sure would miss the high headroom cleans that my dsl has.

    Kay W. Sly of Marshall Germany or Oli from Sessions should do a demo of the Origin... They does it better with proper micing than the “Official Marshall Product Demo” video producer does...

    Is it a regular size, like a JVM 410 for example?

    No it seems to be about the same size as the smallbox reissue amps - JTM45 - 1987x.

    The listed dimensions are a mistake.

    I don't hate this. If I can boost it into Thrash territory with a tube screamer consider me interested.

    Wait. What's with all the love for the new Marshall Origin amps? I thought Marshall was going down the toilet, getting their lunch eaten by Friedman by releasing only Marshall branded fridges and sunglasses? The Origin amps don't sound anything like the super-awesome Friedman WP-50 (Wet P*ssy 50) and is only a fraction of the cost? They must really suck, another example of why Marshall is behind the times and isn't listening to their market. Have totally given up on them.
