But back to the first question regarding what kind of Marshall to get… That isn’t such an easy question to answer because the various Marshalls over the years have been really each optimized for particular types of tones and guitar types and have changed both due to the tastes and demands of musicians as well as for cost or manufacturing reasons. We’ll cover that and cover in general what seems to work the best to maximize a particular Marshall. Some work well with high-output style humbucking pickups, others really come alive with PAF (i.e. stock Gibson) types. While certainly there is much "opinion" and "what is good tone" can be an argument in and of itself, there are certain facts and consistencies of setups to avoid. In addition, there are some notable models that the potential buyer should be made aware of that may not be as solid or good sounding as another particular amp from the same series. We’ll explain those models and reveal why…

It’s easy to understand the "love/hate" attitudes amongst guitarists regarding Marshall amplifiers. Models have of course changed much through the years and while the well-known rock recordings seem to always get all the great Marshall tones, it can sometimes feel somewhat elusive for the person who has saved their money and gone out to get "their first Marshall" and then perhaps felt some disappointment by not hearing or obtaining all the sounds they expected.
