    absolutely evil.

    i won't say its the worst amp i've ever had to play through, but I will say that the worst tones I've ever heard came from that amp. they had one in the rehearsal spot my old band had. Plugged in and immediately wanted to kill myself. couldn't find one useable dirty sound.


    for bland, solid state cleans, it was adequate.

    I also found it to be a terrible amp. There are plenty of great choices for a nice sounding amps within the $600 range. I'd pass on the Marshall you're looking at..

    I had one before I knew any better. Save yourself the time and the money. Luckily I bought it at GC and was able to return it for a refund.
