So with great anticipation (honestly assumed i'd be walking out with it) I plugged in the Origin 20H into a 1x12 cab with a greenback. Not a bad sounding amp by any stretch. But, next to it was, lo and behold, a 68 custom Princeton (which is the amp I intended on replacing with the Origin for certain things). So I A/B'd them, using the same 1x12 cab, and playing a nice Am Pro Strat with rosewood board and what I believe to be Fat 50s. As expected, the CPR was pretty damn bassy, so I "dialed it in" aka turn the bass off. Then I went back to the Origin. Holy crap it sounds thin now! And there was treble I just couldn't dial out. Back and forth a few times. Too bassy vs too trebly. But overall I figured that even for the Marshall inspired stuff I play, the Princeton is the better sounding amp (to my ear, at the time). At least I can dial down that bass. Don't get me wrong, there were still attributes about the Marshall that were unique and I really love. But something about it. Hate to use a cliche like "harsh" but that may just be the best way to describe the tonal characteristics. Is my ear just playing tricks on me because I went from a very bassy amp to a Marshall? or is the Origin really a "thin" sounding amp? Color me confused!
