Ordered it back in February, knowing that it was going to be on back-order for a while…the wait was kicking my butt! turns out that it was really worth the wait! for those unfamiliar - Marshall says that the studio vintage amps are a faithful homage to the plexi amps, but scaled down to 20 watts, with a further reduction to 5 watts at the flip of a switch. Mine is the combo with a 10” speaker, and it’s similar in size to my 5E3. it arrived in a box that was deceptively large - but it was really well packed, and looked handsome with black tolex and gold piping, and a vintage grill cloth - top panel in gold plexi, and a vintage looking gold vent. plugged it in, and flipped the switch - and dayum…it sounds fantastic! I’d been worried that the 10” speaker wouldn’t sound great, but it’s great in this amp, and the amp is plenty loud - it’s more than enough for nearly anything I’d typically play (casino/VFW Hall/county fair/street dance) it’s a bright amp - too bright for me on the high treble channel - but when you jump the channels, magic happens. I’ve got the treble on 3, the mid on 6, the bass is on 8, and the presence is off - normal channel dimed, and high treble on 8, and it just roars with the guitar wide open. roll the guitar volume back and it cleans up well, and its warm and sweet with just a bit of crunch when I dig in - speaking of digging in, its über responsive to how I play. It is one of the most responsive amps I’ve ever owned…and I love the dynamics that the amp has. definitely still in the honeymoon phase - but I may have found the perfect amp for me. I tried it with a couple of other speaker cabinets - a Jensen 12” and a Weber 12” - both were nice, but not as nice to my ears as the stock 10”. A buddy has a great 4x12”, and I’ll give that a shot next. great little amp - grab and go for gigs or rehearsals, or use the 5 watt option for living room playing!
