"The Marshall MS-2"

The Marshall MS-2 is the smallest amp I have ever seen and it can be taken anywhere to use as a practice amp. The MS-2 is so small I have had people ask me if it actually works and then be amazed when I plugged it in, it is so small you can attach it to your belt with the clip on the back! If you ever wanted an amp to carry around with you and practice with then this will be a good purchase.
Even though the amp is so small it is actually quite loud. It would not be loud enough to practice with friends on 10 watt amps, but its enough to practice alone. One problem I experienced was when turning the volume up on the clean setting the sound becomes a bit distorted - the sound quality is so much better at the lower volume levels.

The amp does actually have the Marshall sound, when comparing with larger amps I found the sound to be very alike. You will not get much variety out of this amp though, with only a tone control and distortion (on/off) you will be playing pretty much what the amp can produce (which I think sounds great).

The amp does also have a headphone socket so you that you can play the guitar to yourself whereever you are. There is an option for a power pack or batteries (so when you are at home you do not need to drain millions of batteries to use it).
Another point is that the MS-2 will drain batteries very quickly, just like the pedals and pretty much all Marshall equipment.

All in all, the amp was definetly worth the £25 that I paid for it. It is very useful for when you are travelling and want to take the guitar or just want to walk around the house playing. : )
I would recommend getting one just to say to your friends you just bought a Marshall amp. : P
