    If I’m mistaken, weren’t there Big M cabinets made in the US while they were distributed by Unicord?

    The Marshall Made in U.S.A. ship has already sailed back in the mid 70s. Used Eminence speakers. - short lived less 2 yrs. just as @radiomatts previously posted.

    Yeah, they could do like BMW, Volkswagen and Subaru; set up shop in a state that has little or no labor protections and turns their workforce into temp agency whores. The American south, ya'll - America's own China!

    Import tariff in the US for amps and cabs is '0'. Labour cost for the high price stuff in the UK is comparable to the US, the cheaper stuff is all made all over Asia. So there is no benefit building the stuff in the US. You can buy a UK made hand wired plexi for $2k shipped and have it in front of your door within 5 days shipped from Europe.

    For $1k7 you can get the reissue from Marshall. Fun fact: The JCM800 was never hand wired. Marshall built their amps with PCBs since the early 70s. The last hand wired amps from Marshall where 1959/1987/2245.

    Didn't Orange make bigger cabs in the US? It must have saved them the bucks somewhere.

    All things considered Marshall is micro market. Just another grill at Home Depot. Plus, I don't think they are thinking about expanding as much as they are thinking how they will be relevant in a future market when all of us have kicked off. Fact is they won't.

    They won’t ship Marshalls to the US, I tried to buy one twice. Marshall doesn’t allow it.

    They do ship Marshall products to the US.
    @DougUSMC got his 1959hw from Thomann delivered to the US a few weeks ago.

    And another guy in the Marshall facebook group got a 1959hw half stack. They only don't ship the B cabs to the US due weight restrictions per parcel on air freight. (49kg)

    Well, I don’t know what to tell you. A couple of years ago I tried to buy two separate Marshall products, at two different times, from Thomanns US section.

    Both times when I went to check out, a flag popped up saying Thomann is prohibited, (from Marshall), from selling to the US.

    Unless something has changed from that time. Seems to me that Marshall would NOT want European countries selling Marshalls to Americans given the Euro prices are sooo much cheaper.

    I’m gonna try again, just to see what’s going on. I mean why would anyone buy a 2203 in the US for $3200,… when they can buy the same amp from Europe for $1700?!

    And the price disparity is across the board, every Marshall product is way cheaper from Thomann than any American company.

    Just for the hell of it I’m gonna try again to buy a Marshall, I’ll report back! Lol. :D

    What changed is that Fender, Roland, Yamaha, Thomann, MusicStore got sued by the EU antitrust office for those price fixing practices.
    Do it. Delivery time is about 5-10 days across the pond.
    And don't forget to buy the 2 fuses that need to be replaced and a us power cord.
