Marshall Micros as a gift for someone

Recommended Posts

My brother had one of those when they very first came out, 20-some years ago...?

decent practice amps for when you’ve got to be quiet but I never liked the tone. Only put them one step about playing an electric unplugged.

These days I would much rather put the money towards a used Roland Microcube.

Mine Is broken and not sure it ever worked right    It’s a very nice looking paperweight tho.

Seeing it was going to be a little gift, I got my answer!

Thanks!

I remember the 80´s when I see these. I had a small amp like that, that ran on a 9V battery (no outlet for an adapter). I think it only had one volume knob, no tone. Or it had a tone too.... It was cheaply built. I actually ran through more than one over the years as they broke kinda easily. They sounded pretty crappy, but the were easy to carry around. Can't remember what brand they where, not Marshall, that I know...

I have the IKmultimedia nano amp and it sounds decent through a cabinet.  Through the built in speaker it doesn't sound very good.  Ok, but not very good.

As a gift, that little amp would be fine.  The recipient can decide if it is cool or not.

My wife had one (it's still around someplace). she accidentally dropped the pointy end of some embroidery scissors through the grill.  We agreed that it improved the tone.

The Blackstar Fly is close to the same price and sounds sooooo much better.

When I first spotted this title, I was thinking “hell yes I’d like to receive one as a gift!”.

I had to buy mine. 😀
