Since my Monoprice crapped out, I figured I'd try something new. It came down to the Bassbreaker 15 or the Marshall Origin 20. To be honest, I liked the sound of the Origin a bit better, but just for that typical Marshall tone. That's really all it did well, and I'm not much of a pedal guy. The Fender has three different gain settings, and is a lot more versatile.

So here it is in all its glory...

I'm still messing around, but I'm digging it. It goes from clean to fairly dirty (into metal territory), and it sounds nice at bedroom levels, which was something I was after. It's supposed to get close to the old Marshall tone (hence the name) and does a pretty good job.

Anyways, here's my first recording (from the backing track of the month thread). Excuse the playing. Metal isn't really my wheelhouse, but it was fun :cheers:

These amps sound good for the money.....good job
Thanks. Yeah, it seems like a lot of amp for the money. I don't know that much about amps, so I just sat down in the store and tried a few out. The only negative i could see for some is that the gain stages aren't foot switchable. I only play and record in my basement though, so that's fine with me :laugh2:
