Marshall Custom Shop 1W Offset Tube Guitar Stack Black w/Tan Grille

I hope being custom shop and msrp of 1700 for a 1 watt amp that they were made in UK.

 

Saw an anderton's review of it and it sounded pretty good.

 

That's a good price compared to normal.

 

I'd love to grab some of these little 1 watt tube heads Marshall did recently, but I don't record, and while I mostly play at bedroom levels, that's a lot of money for an amp that you can't really play out with.

I had a JCM1 and it sounded plenty loud through a Marshal 1965a 4x10.

 

Not loud enough to play with a drummer I would say.

 

Sold it (for a profit) and bought a Marshall SL-5 which I use mainly in the 1w setting.

I own one of these and it is fantastic! The perfect recording, practice amp. Wattage is not a good indicator of loudness, this amp certainly is not bedroom friendly in the 1w mode ( you can engage .05w as well). Its louder than you can talk or scream. It is not enough to keep up with a drummer though, if he hits hard. This amp is from the Marshall Custom shop, located in jolly England. Its worth every penny in my book.

I love those little heads! They are actually pretty loud - not drummer loud, but I have used them to play a 500 seat auditorium with our school chorus (not miked either) and I've used them in bars in my little trio.

 

Sonically, though, I think this new one is much like the JTM1H though which I already have.

I had the JCM1 head, but sold it. Still planning to acquire the JMP1H at some point though.
