Marshall Dave Mustaine Megastack

Tweet
Want to look like a Mammoth, Towering Colossus Of Rock?
You need the new, Marshall Dave Mustaine Megastack, then.
Park one of these in your backline and you will look monstrously huge on stage. Basically because, despite the mega name, this is essentially a microstack.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
The Megastack comprises a 15-watt head with four channels (yep, four) just like Dave’s own JVM rigs.  You can choose from clean, crunch and a couple of overdrives named New Wave Of British Metal and Holy Solo.
Nice.
A three-way tone stack and …

Orange Unveil New Amps

Tweet
Orange have been keeping busy and have used NAMM to launch a number of new models.
First up, pictured left, is the new addition to the, very popular, Tiny Terror range.  We’ve always had a soft spot for the lunch-pail Tiny Terror.  Those of you who don’t have – or don’t want – extension cabs around the place however, can get your Tiny Terror in combo form.
This new addition to the Tiny Terror Combo range is even more tiny and comes loaded with a Celestion G10 Vintage speaker.  This unit sits …

3rd Power – Amp And Triangular Speaker Cabs

Tweet
Weird, eh?  This is the 3rd Power HD100 amplifier head sitting atop three separate HLH 312 speaker cabinets.
The HD100 is a US-made, 100W, all-valve amplifier head.  It’s built with point-to-point construction and has two, foot-switchable channels.  A ‘voicing’ switch can toggle from ‘smooth’ (classic, vintage tones) to ‘bold’, which we’re told provides a more lyrical quality.
Each of the HLH312 speaker cabinets (and remember, there are three in this image) contains three Celestion Vintage 30 speakers.  3rd Power claim that the design of the cabinets eliminates the beaming and comb-filtering associated …

Line 6 Announce M9 Stompbox Modeler and Spider MkII

Tweet
The massive-foreheaded boffins in Line 6 have been busy of late and have announced and shipped two new rock-toys.
First off is the M9 Stompbox Modeler. This is a multi-effect pedal that houses a huge collection of splendid stompbox-type effects. Included are loads of distortions and drives, compressors and reverbs. There are filters, modulators and pitch-shifters. It’s also got a number of effects lifted from Line 6’s DL4 delay modeler and includes a 28-second looper with plenty of control over your loops.
You can run three effects simultaneously and can tweak the …

Five Star Class

Tweet

A five-watt, class A, all-valve, baby-Bluesbreaker? Yes please.
This is the Class 5 from Marshall who are, thankfully, jumping on the low-powered valve amp-wagon. Sporting a pair of ECC83s in its preamp stage and a single EL84 to perform power-amp duties, Marshall tell us it’ll do the necessary for home, studio, rehearsals or even small gigs. This latter may require using its handy speaker output but bedroom guitarists around the world should be ably catered for.
Simplicity is the order of the day. You get your Treble, Middle and Bass tone shapers …
