I maybe a little biased as a Hendrix fanatic but I've seriously never heard such an organic, smooth and musical amp in my life. The way this thing sits on the edge of clean and dirty, the polished sound of the highs and how musical all the frequencies are... I had to share this with fellow Marshall lovers. This is THE Marshall tone in my opinion, atleast early Marshall. I've rarely heard Johan not sound like himself no matter what year or model he plays thru but there is just something magical about this amp. This is a sound Marshall needs to replicate and honestly no modern or old amp I have ever had the luxury of playing can touch this amps mojo.
