    That thing we talked about still isn’t outside the realm of possibility.

    I wouldn’t worry about that part, just yet. A little beta testing, and little word of mouth...
    You never know what that amp may or may not cost.
    But I have a lot of stuff between here and there.
    Just saying “it ain’t dead yet....”
    :)

    He’s actually played through my amp. Not “the same amp”. MY amp. :)
    He’s an orange guy. They’re very different sounds. It’s the difference between a shot-filled, dead blow hammer and a 7lb sledge.

    Yes, M&M’s 2203 2x12 sounds amazing with the Warehouse 30’s. Would have liked to hear it through a full stack!!

    I’d buy a Marshall 2203 if I could afford it. But I can’t justify spending that much. My CR120H was <$400 shipped. That’s more my budget range.

    2204.
    ;)
    If I played what you play, a 2203 (100w version) would get me that extra big iron thump.
    But for me and my jam band bluesrock good time rock n roll/country/Americana/whatever, a 50w open back gets me there.
    I do love those speakers. They’ve really gotten good. I think they’re probably where they’ll stay. I might actually order a WGS ET-65 to pair with the Vet 30. They say it’s a match made in heaven. Only like $100, shipped.

    Plus it sounds like that CR120 is a crusher.
    Orange doesn’t fuck around.

    It’s my sound. Ive tried a bunch of other stuff, but playing a LP straight into that thing with everything turned halfway up is perfection to me.

    It’s really, really good. A LOT of power and way loud. Does NOT sound like a solid state amp. At all. Check out the recordings I sent you on my Soundcloud account link in PM. That’s the amp; guitar straight into the CR120 and CRPRO412 with no effects or mixing. The only critique is that I’d like just a touch more bottom end. Otherwise, a lot of amp for the $$, and sounds better than a lot of tube amps I’ve heard.

    I have to wait until I get home (or into San Pedro) for SoundCloud to work, but I haven’t forgotten.

    To be dead honest..I hated the vintage one..thought the OR15 sounded like a hot-rodded MARSHALL (ie. like a Tubescreamer goosed 2203), and only got the lil one because it was cute..

    SO do not like them..but it wasn't from lack of trying..

    I realised I am a JMP Marshall guy FOR LIFE.

    Yet you are still a fountain of knowledge. You taught me about the unique structure of the vintage model.

    Can't remember what it's called, however.

    Aww shucks, man, too kind.

    They were OR80 and OR120, with a James/Baxandall tone stack (no mid control).

    See, that's fair though - you tried them and didn't like them. I can respect that. You're not bashing them with no perspective, they just didn't work for you.

    I think that's the part of guitar/amp collecting that my wife struggles to understand - yes, I want to find MY gear and stick with it, but I also want to try lots of things. I love experiencing different gear and even when it doesn't work out, it expands my knowledge base.

    The real problem is when you find too many things you like, and you start running out of money, room in the house, and spousal patience. :dunno::rofl:
