    HI i just came across this and was blown away by the high gain and metal sound this fellow can get out of a origin, not everyones cup of tea but just shows the range of this amp of most youtube vids are ac/dc crunch or clean tones.

    And yes i know its not a high gain amp but with just a TS and different presence, MV and tilt settings i was very impressed.

    High gain origin sounds

    Origin metal

    I hate most of what I've heard on the net with this amp.

    I bought a 50H and ripping it! Apparently this amp shows where a player stands. Plexis do that too.:agreed:

    I can get just about any tone I'm looking for out of my O20H rig - crystal clear to death metal.
    Simple tube swaps get classic tones straight in, and my pedal setup does the rest.
    FZ-5 & SD-1 in the front, GE-7, CH-1 & RV-6 in the loop, pair of Vintage 30s in a custom cab.

    I don't watch the Origin YT vids anymore.
    They almost always use attenuators into an IR sim setup, so they can crank the amp and talk to the camera.
    I've never heard them say "I'm going straight into a 1x12, or 2x12 cab just like you have at home, and crank it so loud the cops come".
    If you don't have that kind of external hardware, you not going to get those tones.

    I don’t get it. This can be done with just about any amp you like, and certainly any Marshall you like. Just add od pedals and boost pedals until you get there.

    What’s the big deal?

    It all sounds like trash anyway! :D

    The Origin is a great sounding amp.
    But it really is better with a good OD pedal.
    More vintage/plexi sounding.

    Right on point @fitz288, to me, when reviewing an amp, it should always start with just the guitar, amp, and speaker/speakers. No pedals, no IRs, no cabinet in a different room shit, etc., etc., etc.

    But that’s just me, :D


    Oh, and Fitz!

    I'm not a fan of "Metal" tone myself. Just me. As soon as things start to sound fuzzy and that "supersonic" distortion starts, I'm out.

    :2c:

    I thought it showed a different side of what the amp is capable of, I bought mine because of it plexi like heritage.
    Cheers

    Yeh, i thought it was interesting the sounds people were getting out of it if and as i mentioned it was not everyones cup of tea (obviously).
    I was praising the amp as a great all rounder, and apparently the sounds were done with just the amp and a overdrive, where as i thought to get that sound it would be a array of pedals or effects etc.
    I can get great clean tones and some good sounds with a rat or distortion, metal is not my type of music either , was just sharing what i found for people that may of been interested.
