    Marshall Origin 20.

    https://www.long-mcquade.com/99279/G...-20w-Head.htm#
    This week I put a deposit down in one of these heads. I'm not sure when I will see it as there is quite a waiting list for them. I've always wanted a Marshall Plexi and it looks like it will give me that flavor with blowing my walls down. I will tell you more about it when it arrives and I can experience it.

    20 watts can get pretty loud...
    hope you don't have to wait too long.

    That's an interesting amp. To me, one of the downfalls of many lower-powered tube amps is the fact that they're combos, so you're tied to an 8" speaker. This head, at 20 watts. is just about a perfect size....almost Deluxe Reverb territory, but Marshall flavoured. The fact that you can mix and match cabinets is a bonus. Hope you enjoy, KC.

    Yeah 20 watts should be able to power almost anything you'd need. My gigging amp is 38 watts and I leave the volume literally at around 1/10th power

    This is really interesting!

    I still like a tube amp, but I find myself not having a problem with my Vox AD50VT, which is pretty much a modelling amp. The only amp I want is a Bassman or even a custom one that incorporates whats good with a Bassman and the chime of a Vox, but the days of the high power, high wattage tube amps are gone anyway.. and the digital stuff is very appealing and I see myself owning a Kemper instead of buying a tube amp.

    I really like my Fender Super Champ X2 for it's Fender tones. The other stuff like the Brit tones are so so. Thats why I went for this particular Marshall. I will have both that and the Super Champ going through my single 12 Celestion cab with an A/B box. Kinda best of both worlds for a home amp. Nothing wrong with a lot of Modelling amps out there though. Many of them are more than gig ready. I think it's going to be pretty cool adding some Marshall flavor to this already great little set up.
