I have many amps, Randall, Alamo, Old Peaveys, Mesa Boogie, Collectors, I could go on and on with what I have. Today I like to keep it simple and it's nice to here a change in tone with all the differant amps and electronics, pedal or whatever. Today, I like letting the board man doing my changes and that gives me all this room to play man.

It has an A and B channel where you can set them up anyway you like. B I think was intended to be the more dirty channel but with all the Marshalls I have this one has BALLS! At the same time it can sound as sweet as a whatever mellow amp. Lots of versatility. I dig it and really love the sweet sound I get from it performing or just practice. I play lots of differant guitars on it and it complements all of them. I know all of my guitars acoustically "unplugged" and transfer that sound through my marshalls..........Man! On the effects issue I use to have a monster full of effects but as I've grown older today at 45 I've gotten into the sound of the axe I'm burning up on stage. I do have a Vox wah, and Boss delay and that's it.
I use on the road two differant Fender Strats one a 1971 (my favorite) hard tail and a 1978 Antiqua w/tremelo. They both are the real Fender experience. I've tried then new ones but I dont know why these these Fenders do it for me rather than the new Stats. I play Rock mainly, instramentals, jazz w/fusion. 46 Guitars in all and love all of them. My most beutiful guitar has to be my Washburn DLX (most expensive axe too). Also, NO NOISE!
The amp I'm targeted on could do alot more than I do with it but I like to keep things simple and set-up one channel than the other, then control all my sound on the guitar. The amp works for me very well because I treat it simple and don't worry about all this constant change. My fingers do all that.
I will say I've been through the art of demons with the tube thing but if you really want what your listening for, for me it's totally worth it. That's why I have so many amps! It does take it's hits with the rodies though. I don't really use covers but do use tarps and heavy blankets. They do take hits very well without looking like it. I get rips in the cabs once in awhile but I just super glue it back in place and it's as good as new.
I hate Marshall amps, no, that's not a typo, I really despise them. But, their cabinets are second to none.
Where Obtained: Local Music Store
4 Celestion 12" 70 watt speakers. 16 ohms.
I wouldn't use these for blues or jazz, but for hard rock/metal, well, need I say more.
Bullet proof ... Ive had mine for years, the outsides are well worn, but they still sound great. Unless you drop it from a plane, you'll have it for life.
I looked at a peavy cab, it was ok, but not quite the same. Besides, I wanted things to match.
Model Year: 1995
