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)

By Affordable Tunes, 07/01/2019
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.
Pros:
1. As long as you have effects to use it's AWESOME!
2. Lightweight
3. Great sound
4. Versital for Practice or Small Venues

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

Does anyone know when it was made?
