Marshall 1987x Head - Opinions?
I have been looking at these more and more recently. I have been dithering over different amps (both combo's and head's) for about 6 months now. And I still cant decide what I really want/need.
I am a big Yngwie fan (as some of you know) - and thats what got me onto the Marshall 1987x. I have been looking at them since about January time, and I keep going back to them. They seem just what I am after.
And seeing as it is modelled on the same amps that Yngwie uses, I know I will get the tones out of that I need, especially when used in conjunction with my DOD YJM308 pedal.
But I just wondered if anybody on here has tried one, or has got one, or knows someone who has one?
Just looking for some opinions overall really.
I have read the reviews on Harmony Central 100 times over, and all the reviews and opinions I have read, have seemed pretty positive.
At the same time however, I have also been looking at the Laney GH50L Head as well. It is another 50watt head, so has the same basic specs that I want and like from the Marshall - plus its about half the price of the Marshall!
Any opinions welcome of course!
