    Marshall 50th Aniversary 1w Amps

    I've got all five of the one watt amps. I love them all and they are my most appropriate amps for my condo playing. My amp collection consists of a couple Two-Rocks, Goodsell, Tone King and Vintage Sound but the one watt Marshalls are probably my favorite amps to play because I can rock them a...

    Two-Rock Appreciation thread Lets see/hear about yours

    It's been a while since I posted a picture on a forum. Let me try again. <a href="http://s1296.photobucket.com/user/darthfederer/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_3793_zpsko7tihob.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img...

    Two-Rock Appreciation thread Lets see/hear about yours

    It's a shame that Two-Rock isn't what it once was. I did have to send in my Studio Pro about 9-10 months ago and got great service from Mac Skinner and a guy named Eric. Not sure if either are still there. The reason for my post though is my most recent amp purchase. I bought a 22 watt Crystal...

    Is this really true? That sounds crazy.

    marshall 1 watt pricing

    This thread is hysterical to read through after so many years. I guess it's hard to predict what's going to be coveted. So many naysayers on these 1-watters though. Glad those who bought them new will at least retain their purchase value.

    Recommendations for a more versatile Marshall JCM-800

    I didn't read through the thread but I'm sure it's been mentioned. Splawn Super Sport sounds right up your alley.

    Marshall help me decide jcm 2000 1 watt head or new era dsl 15 watt head?

    Also, the 1-watters were each dialed in based on the best example of each amp that Marshall could find. Plus, you can always find a DSL 15 somewhere. It's going to be much harder to find a jcm2000/1-watter as time goes on. Having said that, I prefer several of the other 1-watters to the jcm2000...

    Marshall help me decide jcm 2000 1 watt head or new era dsl 15 watt head?

    I'd go for the 1-watter for home playing. I've got all the 1-watters and love them all. The jcm2000 1-watter stays clean all the way up on the clean channel. It is loud enough for home playing for sure. It is not a dirty clean. The jcm800 is single channel and doesn't have the same clean...

    vintage sound amps 20 and 22 opinions, differences

    The shrillness in the drri is readily apparent when you a/b them. Also, the drri is slightly louder than the Vintage 22. I was also playing a '73 Princeton when demoing these amps and it was really no comparison. The mid control and dwell knobs are fantastic additions. The tremolo is way better...

    vintage sound amps 20 and 22 opinions, differences

    I just replied in another VS amp thread. I've played the 15, 20 and 22 watt VS amps extensively over the last month. Also threw in a drri for comparison as well. I used to own a drri but sold it a couple years ago. I ended up with the Vintage 22 with a Weber California speaker. To me, the...

    Vintage Sound Amps / Treys A's deluxe reverb?!?

    I just picked one up last week. It is awesome. I've got a fairly extensive collection to compare it to including a two-rock sp 22+, Tone King and a Goodsell Super 17. It's cleans are a little more familiar than the others. A shop down the street just became a dealer a few months back so I was...

    Tiny low watt amp suggestions

    If you can find one, a Marshall sl5 sounds like an good fit.

    Apartment Amp suggestions

    I've got a bunch of amps and only play in my condo. Other than my Tone King Falcon, nothing is more appropriate than my Marshall 1-watters. My condo is old and built correctly so I don't have any major noise issues with my neighbors. I rock my 1-watters at all hours of the day and night.

    Low Watt Amp Attenuator Opinion Needed

    I wouldn't say it's overly compressed. Slightly more than the 1-watt setting maybe. You lose some of the warm richness of the clean tone and some bass in the .1 watt setting though. The overdrive sounds great in both modes. I usually run it clean on 1-watt and hit it with pedals for late night...
