poney(be)'s review - Marshall B150

- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?
Mix between lamp and transistor, one can suitcher Blend / dose between the two. Very effectively by the way, it makes us so preamp 2: one lamp and a transistor.

- What is the power delivered?
150w, and I guarantee that they are present, it's the racket! But it is far (15 inches requires) so when we play at, you wonder where are the watts and 20m away, or they have known!

- What are the settings, the effects? ...
<a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.waves.com/content.aspx?id=11575" target="_blank">one knob</a><span style="position: absolute;"></span><span style="position: absolute;"></span> for gain, bass, treble, compressor, equalizer, limiter, an effects loop, ... a passive input, one active, one XLR.

UTILIZATION

- The configuration is it simple?
For me yes, not rocket science in there.

- Gets it easy to sound good?
idem, it all depends on what you call "good sound" to me is exactly what I want now.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Clearly yes, if you understand English. Also sufficient. But nothing exeptional. At any rate, not need more.

SOUNDS

- Will it fit your style of music?
Knowing that I play the blues as well as metal, I was looking for an amp to the large and relatively neutral palette and I'm still impress every day (it's been two months that I have)

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?

A Fender Precision, a MIM Jazz Bass and Jazz Bass XP and my Cort. I tried the Yamaha fretless from a friend and my roommate scratch branch from time to time over his Fender Stratocaster. I use it sometimes with my V-amp (as a multi purpose, although it be not the true function whawha ...), my or my disto.

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
The gain "provided" with the amp is very light, those who want a real big must go through a distortion pedal. We can have a dry sound as well as drooling, or fat, especially in passing on the lamp (I changed the Marshall home after she passed away one morning for a brand of Russian and Eastern Europe I forget the name (no, not Sovtec), it's going a little stronger than the original)
The sound is usually loaded midrange and treble, the bass does not drool. The typical sound made by Marshall, but stripped down version. Coupled with my '51 Precision reissue classic that has the same characteristic (medium) is downright insane! The 5cordes spends much less on it.

OVERALL OPINION

So I use it for a little over two months, I paid € 300 used, and I do not regret a single second.
I had heard the worst nonsense (ais-e want to say) about the Marshall combo modern than it was worth nothing, that Marshall was dead, they need only buy things vintage or high- range, but especially not a small combo, and that more low, it worthless.
Ben Swallow your lollipop ... friends, I am delighted, and I'm not alone.
My drummer was blown away by its power, no need to put a bottom.
The sound is impeccable.
For its price, it's really top it has a very wide range of sound with the 7-band equalizer very effectively.

With experience, I do it again this choice without problem!
Downside: the price, € 300 on average, used when we know that for one-half the price it was the Fender BXR 100, it leaves a thought (although I prefer my Marshall).
