When i think Marshall I think classic black and gold just like Mesa I think black/silver.
SNAMM '''15 - Marshall Astoria Series Classic and Custom Demos | Premier Guitar
This seems to me like the OPPOSITE of the direction that Marshall needs to go.... They were very relevant during the thrash days. If I were at the helm of Marshall, I would tell my team:
'We need a new metal amp for TODAY's artist.'
It would LOOK like a retro Marshall, but it would sound tighter and darker than a JCM 800 (still unique is the trick).
It would also include a built in power brake with a line level send, and 2x built in Noise gates (pre - preamps, and after FX loop).
Bonus feature: Some way to load 3rd party IRs into the line level send module. Maybe via USB?
These are the features we demand. Not pastel Cadillac color tolex on old Plexi schematics.....
