Oooh I love these! In Mexico, I think I owned like 3 or 4 of them at once - if you daisy chain them (like Hendrix stacks) they can get mighty loud!
They're slowly starting to get a strong following now!

One of my friends used to have the non reverb version which sounded great, I was always a bit jealous of it. I had no idea there was a reverb version, maybe I was better off not knowing that ;D

It really is mind-blowing when you hear one.

Killer find Maggie! I've lost some stuff before, but I've never so lucky as to lose, and then find, a whole amp :D I also fully support a Vox/Marshall stack, as well as tiny Marshalls in general. I picked up an Origin 20 last year because I really wanted a small Marshall-voiced combo, and I love it. Small Marshalls for the win!!

I'm probably not the best person to describe amps as so many of the classic sounds aren't things I've ever tried, but I love it. I wanted something with the Marshall sound, and it delivers. I've got the Origin 20C (combo), and I believe it's a 10" speaker. 20W with a 3-way wattage switch (hi= 20w, mid= 6w, low= +/-0.5w). One of my favorite controls is the tilt knob, which is basically a pot-version of the 4-way input jacks of classic Marshalls. Instead of screwing with multiple input jacks and bridging between two channels, the pot can be set somewhere between a "normal channel" sound and "high treble channel" sound, in addition to the 3-band EQ. Even the boost/drive (channel?) sounds pretty good.

Not to dis your amp, and I certainly didn't have time to dial it in to perfection, but compared to my little Reverb12, the Origin 20 at the store that I played yesterday, seemed kind of lifeless and oddly boxy.

It makes me feel pretty smart for a 20-something who bought the wee Marshall, but I was kind of weirded out by the floor model Origin.
