    @Mitchell Pearrow You do the Origin justice with these videos. Whatever video I watch on youtube they all play the same generic blues scales. I think the Origin by itself isn't something great but with the right pedal its a time machine and you go to either the American south for some good old southern hard rock or to late 70s England for some pure heavy metal.
    and it is super cheap. how do you find the quality so far? Does it feel cheap or bad constructed when is compared to an English marshall?

    They are to me a great build, I am not giging or moving them daily.
    And the only British built amps I have are the 2 mosfet’s, and for the price, they can’t be beat.
    I swear I can get early Priest tones, from Sad Wings of Destiny
    on them, and a very cool Sabbath vibe as well.
    Thanks for the compliment.
    Mitch

    @Mitchell Pearrow have you compared it with an Origin 20watt head? because I read that some people complained that the 20h didn't sound Marshall-y but the 50h makes the Marshall sound justice. Is this true?

    The 20 watt head is what sold me on these amps to begin with.
    I had heard a guy doing a demo of the 20, and it had brought back a very familiar tone to my ears, so I did a little demo of it, and ordered the 50H, and about a year later.
    I grabbed the second one!!
    So to answer your question, they both have that Marshall growl, punch.
    Cheers

    sweet. I have the mini jube now, and I want to sell it for the mini jcm 800. after that it's either the Origin or maybe a Fender

    Hey guys, I finally made a video for the 2x12 I've recently added for my 50 combo. In this video, I feel like I didn’t set up the mics very well for both speakers so don’t judge me, I am not a good sound engineer lol... The only pedal I used for the amp is the Solodallas Schaffer Replica (Clean boost pedal).
    Also, when I first got everything set up and started playing about 2 weeks ago, I was already impressed with the sound even though the new speakers I replaced still needed to be break in, it's been 2 weeks so far, so here is the video I recently uploaded...

    Sounds fantastic! A vast improvement from the stock 70/80’s imo. Thanks for sharing. I’ve also got the origin 2x12 cab to go with my origin 50h. You’ve made it pretty clear to me how badly I need to upgrade the stock speakers.

    Excellent job bro, thanks for sharing your tones you have gathered from a great amp.
    And if I have already said this just disregard it.
    But welcome to the forum, and nice playing to boot.
    I love seeing the younger brothers playing some great rock riffs.
    Cheers Mitch

    And Welcome to the forum to you as well brother, I look forward to hearing some clips from you as well bro.
    Don’t let the speakers dictate, as most of you know I don’t , but I do know that better speakers are a must, because for the most part I am going through MG cabs.
    And only 2 of them have gotten an upgrade, and yes it does get better with the upgrade.
    Cheers Mitch

    The sound was fine it's just that the sg was out of tune ,made it a little painful lol. But I appreciated the demo.I've been on the fence for a while with the origins.I think they do a great job for ac/dc.

    GibsonSgSpecial, wow. You certainly have some serious Angus Young tone going on there. Thank you for going to the trouble to record and share this clip. Awesome!

    Thanks, it did sound out of tune, I usually tune it down almost slightly close to half step down, but I've been having a little bit of tuning issues here lately on the SG, it's always that G string haha.

    Ha!! Many years ago ( I was 16 at the time ), When we were just learning to play, our drummer's answer to our very apparent lack of musicianship was to play even louder. Years later, at an early gig, we were asked to shorten our set list to accommodate a shorter time slot. When asked what songs we would cut Mike paused for a minute and said "non of them. We will just play everything faster"
    Brother where there is a will there is a way. Stay calm Motor on!!

    @GibsonSgSpecial classic Marshall tone right there you nailed it.

    I really wanna hear the origin in the mix how it is with a full band.

    Thanks man, I've seen a video of someone playing the 20 combo with someone on drums, it sounds pretty good, I forgot where the video is but I'd say you could maybe find it if you look up the Origin amps on youtube, I've also never really played with a full band with the amp but I'd say it would sound killer if the mics and stuff is set up right but if you ever wanted me to, I can edit and make some music through my DAW with drums and bass but it might take me a bit to get it done lol.
