The Marshall ORI20C Origin 20 Guitar Amplifier Combo is perfect for those who want classic Marshall tones combined with contemporary features, in an easy to transport combo that is great for practising, jamming, and gigging with. Simply plug in, turn it up, and let loose.
Pure valve power
The Origin 20 Combo is equipped with a trio of ECC83 preamp valves and a pair of EL34 tubes in the power amp, which allows you to beef up your tone with incredible energy. The result is a sumptuous harmonic richness combined with sparkling clarity.
The top panel control layout features the Presence and Master output knobs, which allow you to crank up the power amp whilst retaining high end clarity. The classic three-band EQ (Bass/Middle/Treble) allows you to carve out the tone you want, whilst the accompanying Tilt pot enables wider tone-shaping capabilities.
Across the rear panel you’ll find an Effects Loop for integrating outboard effects or processors. There is also a footswitch jack, which allows you to control the gain boost function for extra Marshall bite, or to turn the effects loop on and off. There are also three loudspeaker connections available that include a 16 Ohm jack, and a pair of 8 Ohm jacks.
The DI-Output allows the amp to be connected to an external audio recording device or sound desk. The added loudspeaker emulation ensures that you can capture studio-quality tones with ease, wherever you are and whenever the moment grabs you.
The Origin 20 may be a single channel unit, but the built-in Tilt control allows you to take your tone from a subtle 'normal' Marshall tone to a searing bright-sounding 'high treble' beast. In the full anti-clockwise position, you are treated to a smooth and buttery tone, whereas the fully clockwise position leaps out with a ferocious bite. Roll the dial to the clockwise position, and you'll get the best of both worlds, served with aplomb.
The Output Level switch adjusts the output power level between high, mid, and low. At high the output is at the maximum level, mid sets the amplifier at a lower output for quieter performance that is better suited to suited, whilst the low setting is perfect for bedroom practise.
Celestion V-type speaker
The Origin 20 combo is equipped with a Celestion V-type speaker, which itself is a carefully balanced design that combines old and new techniques. The balanced tonal signature brings together a heady mix of lows, mids, and highs, with slight emphasis on the upper mids. When you crank up the amp, the midrange warmth takes on a life of its own and the speaker sings brilliantly.
Classic Marshall design
The Origin20 is a 20-watt powerhouse that is perfect for home use, recording in the studio, or taking out on the road as a practise amp. The cabinet is protected by a hardwearing tolex exterior, with a cloth speaker grille with classic Marshall logo. The gold finished clasps affix the handle, which makes it nice and easy to take the Marshall Origin 20 Guitar Amp Combo with you wherever you go.
