After doing a search and coming up empty, I decided to create this Marshall Origin Owners Club thread, covering the Origin 5 combo, Origin 20 combo and head, Origin 50 combo and head. I normally prefer Fender amps, love the black face tone, since I mostly play blues, classic rock and a bit of country. I have ventured into Vox territory with a Night Train 15 NT15HG2 Head, and also own a VHT Special 6 head. So, now I have been thinking it was time to consider moving into Marshall territory and after doing some research, ended up buying an Origin 20 Head (ORI20H) which arrived yesterday. I really like it so far. I am using an inexpensive Laney 2x12 cab with WGS ET65 and Retro 30 speakers, and am quite satisfied with the pairing. It sounds great with a variety of OD pedals. I have not had the time to try out my fuzz pedals yet. Looking forward to that, soon. Now, I understand these are lower gain amps with much more clean headroom than the DSL series, for example. However, that is exactly why I opted for an Origin. I no longer have the luxury of a 24 x 24 man cave, having downsized 1 year ago from a 2,400 to a 1,200 sq ft home (in-law apartment attached to daughter's new home). So, I don't have the space to be able to turn it up to a suitable crunch/breakup level. I have many pedals that can get me into that territory and offer up different flavors as well, at a much more suitable "small room at home" volume. My first Marshall amp: I may try different tubes, perhaps further on down the road, after I have had a chance to really get to know this amp. Looking forward to hearing from other satisfied Origin owners.
