Excellent (G-50R)

By loran64, 24/01/2016
A 50W solid state combo, made in the USA between 1970 and 1980.
Three ins: bright/normal/mellow.
Controls: volume, bass, treble, reverb, effect setting, tremolo/vibrato/echo effect.
On/off switch.
Spring reverb.
2x12" USA-made Marlboro Sound Works Special Design speakers.
A jack and knob at the back. Not sure if it's an in or out, the label mentions 60W.
The cab is open-back. Dimensions are 70x45x25 cm (28x18x10"). Looks well in spite of its age: the tolex is in a good condition, the speaker's protection is perfect, nothing is missing and it works perfect. It all smells of vintage quality.

Once plugged in, it's a real surprise! It only has a clean channel, but what a clean sound! Really impressive for solid state. All settings at 12:00, it sounds roots, the lows and trebles are here and well balanced with a nive vintage touch. The Bass and Treble settings are efficient ans allow to vary the resulting sounds. The reverb is beautiful. Works well for pop/blues/"light" rock.

For overdriven sounds, I use two stompboxes in the front: a, Eagleton Mojito and an MXR GT-OD. It sounds really good, from crunch to a powerful overdrive it remains clear and defined, always accurate with the same round sound you get in clean mode, the speakers seem really great. I almost don't use the effects at all, but they don't seem too bad - better than those on a Vox VT15 at least. I also use a bass with it and it sounds correct.

I purchased it from a pawnshop for €60 and I don't regret it. I own several full-tube amps, and even though I remain a tube addict I like this combo very much. Easy to use, good-looking and -sounding. It's the onlt solid state amp that I use.

This Amp Fills All My Needs (G-20B)

I LOVE THIS AMP! I run my Behringer USB- Mixer into it. I connect it to both channels on the amp. Then with today's sound processors, and plug-ins, I can create the sound I want and get plenty loud enough for practicing or partying. I've hosted Karaoke parties, DJ-ed some small venues, and hopefully, I'll be able to take it on a pontoon boat out to a flotilla this summer.
1. As long as you have effects to use it's AWESOME!
2. Lightweight
3. Great sound
4. Versital for Practice or Small Venues

1. This amp doesn't have a ground plug on it

Does anyone know when it was made?
