The Origin ORI20H 20-watt head is powered by 3 x ECC83 Pre-amp tubes and 2 x EL34 Power tubes. This tried and true combination provides a classic all-tube Marshall tone. This single channel amp has two pre-amp voicings: Normal and High Treble. The Tilt control enables you to blend the voice between the normal tone and a high treble tone.

A footswitchable gain-boost feature adds that extra level of gain to generate a more overdriven tone. Marshall’s new power reducing technology, Powerstem, allows you to have high, medium or low power modes to suit your environment, from playing small venues to playing in your bedroom. The Presence control increases the high frequency, while increasing the master volume can give you that classic overdrive sound. Includes footswitch.

Great amplifier for the money especially as a pedal platform


Great amplifier, especially for the money. First of all it is an amazing pedal platform amp with nice bass and mid response. Everything I've run into it sounds really good, and it's near breakup gain is gain on 10 and boost off. It is most like a JTM45, it has a lot more bass and more active tone controls than later Marshall amplifiers like the JCM900 I previously owned. It doesn't overdrive too much on its own, but if you push it with a booster, it does pretty well. It is loud, even in the low power setting, and to really get it to drive, you need to push the power amp. It also doesn't seem to have as much drive as I remember from trying a 50 watt version, but that may have been the guitar more than the amp. Great value, I would recommend it to anyone looking for what I just described. If you want something that sounds like a Super Lead, Super Bass, or JCM800, this is not the right thing to buy. If you want a great pedal platform or early Marshall sound, you can't beat it.



Sounds great


After checking reviews and videos I decided on the origin 20 head, it sounds great and gives me 3 options of output power, has the amazing marshall distortion tone when crancked up the tubes



Classic Marshall Tone... Lightweight at an affordable price.


Great tone. Lightweight. Perfectly paired with my Greenback and Creamback speakers. The ability to toggle switch between wattage output works out great for practice versus performance situations.



Great amp for home practice or small venue gig


If you want that Plexi sound and don't want to spend a bundle, this is the amp for you..
