Marshall JMP-1 Tube MIDI Guitar Preamp

Sound Quality

You can get your own sound of this little tube preamp very quickly. This preamp earned a reputation of a very great preamp that has a lot of enemies like triaxis or rocktron prophesy. Most guitarists refer to this unit as "an old friend is better than two new ones".I know that guitar virtuoso Michael Angelo Batio, Iron Maiden, Paul Gilbert used to play on this preamp, And I think they made a right choice. Marhsall JMP-1 has jus enough distortion to play anything from blues to shred and heavy metal.I am currently using JAckson DK2M with Dimarzio ToneZone pickups and the result is very great. The sound is clean and has enough distortion. The amp isnt noisy at all. The only drtawback of this amp is that in order to fully enjoy the sound you would need to use the preamp with any effects unit for colouring the sound. I am actually using this amp through my computer speakers and it sounds nice. Later I want to buy VHT poweramp and probably Marshall vintage cab to fully enjoy the versatality of my amp. But now I am very impressed with the sound of just marshall jmp-1 through pc speakers


I am not a live performer, but I think these preamps are generally built very reliably

General Comments

I mostly play shred and I think this unit is so much better than many modern amps out there because it is has a very high quality. I have been playing for 1 year.I love everything about my marshall jmp-1 and I will definitely buy another one at no time after if it is stolen. I think marhsall jmp-1 is just keeping the top line in preamp products. Comparing it to Peavey Valveking 212 which I had, Marshall is just the product that has a unique tone to it but Peavey is the good product just for its price and does not have a unique tone.
