I play mostly Van Halen and Buckethead. But like Eric Clapton sometimes. What do you guys think?
Krank Rev jr. Hands down.
Do you need the effects on the Marshall?
No, I don't need the effects, just a good distortion sound out of my pedal to the amp.
Forget those you want a Blackstar Ht-5!
I've hunted out some Youtube clips to illustrate the amp -
Clip 1: talk about LP into Marshall - this is monstrous
Check Hells Bells at 3.57!
Clip 2 :showcases a few different styles.

Will you stop name-dropping this god forsaken, turd of an amp EVERY SINGLE CHANCE you get?
I'm not trying to be rude to you, but can you read? Does your thought process not put two-and-two together? Can't you tell that he IS NOT looking for a high-gain tone?
He apparently has ALL British amps posted up:
Vox, Marshall, Orange... How does that Krank compare to ANY of them? IT DOESN'T. Maybe it was the hands-down choice for you, but it is NOT going to be the hands-down choice for him. Why? Because he APPARENTLY isn't looking for that kind of tone. That Krank has an American, high-gain kinda sound. Not a warm, British, fat sound like those amps have.
Just calling it like I see it man. Its forum-trolls like you that post up MISLEADING information that make forums a bad place.
I just ordered a 14w Phaez daisycutter. Very Brown. Check em out. Point to point, made in Canada by Randy Fay.
Damnit! Kinda liking that Haze.
Now I'm really torn... can't decide between the Marshall Haze, Vox Night train, or the Egnater Rebel. -Gonna pick up one of those yet, just can't decide which.
That Haze does look pretty cool after watching the video. I hate on-board effects (on any amp), so that would be useless for me (except Reverb, that never hurts ). But, I'm sure that is a plus for somebody. And I'm sure that on-board effects are the gateway to getting real effects later.
Honestly, I think Marshall is definitely way behind on the little-amp game though. Orange came out with the Tiny Terror, what... Two years ago or more? And its STILL a hot seller? I think the TT is going to reign supreme in the little amp war.
Although if the Bad Cat Lil' 15 wasn't $1499... That kicks all of their asses.
Be sure and spend a good amount of time with the Rebel. There is A LOT of tones to find on that thing with the tube switching and such!

I'm with you on this one with the Phaez! For the same money or LESS you get a superior amp in every way!! That second clip really shows the awesome tone of this amp!!!
Simple question: why? What makes it cool?
I'm not trolling, I just want to know what excites people about these Haze amps. They don't seem in the least innovative to me. It strikes me there's a range of Brit voiced amps already out there in that power range.
What's cool about it?
That Blackstar sounds pretty damn good to me! Especially for the price.
WOW. Are you for real? Sooooooooooory. Does any one even really care that much?
Don't like my post? Move on to the next one. No need for hostilities.
Ok, update: Orange Tiny Terror vs. That Phaez thing it sounds good
Tiny Terror hands down
If you want one quick I have mine for sale right now for a good price and its basically new. I like it so much that I am moving onto another Orange amp because the best tone is simply there and I'm ready for the next step up.
Even if mine wasn't for sale I would tell you to buy the Orange, it really lives up to the hype and is the reason all the others came out with there own little toasters.
Let me know if you're ready for THE TONE
And btw I also have the BlackStar, while it is awesome on its own level its just not on the same level as the TT.
