          I used to have a Marshall Micro Stack that came with 2 110 cabs and a solid state head.

          It was fun lil amp, but what was more fun was the horny teenage love letter I found stuffed in the back of one of the cabs.

                I had a solid state Marshall Lead 30 combo from that era as well as a Marshall Guvnor pedal. They had the exact same sound as the mini stack. The studio where we recorded had a mini stack and if plugged into a 4x12 they just as big as any other head but at a much more manageable volume. If you put a tube screamer in front of one they cover about 90% of rock/metal tones no problem. Billy Gibbons was reported to have used one into a 1x12 with a Celestion 100 watt speaker. People give them crap for being SS but they delivered the Mashall sound regardless.

                    Around the studio that head was a great problem solver. The space was really small and people couldn't get their gigging amps to sound any good without without deafening people. But we could plug that mini head into anything and get a solid tone without much work.

                          I don't own a Marshall.........but I do own a Mojotone Studio One amp head. Like a JCM900 but at 1 watt.

                            About ten years ago I had a Haze 15 mini stack. Head with two 12” cabs. I sold that to fund something else. This year I went back to Marshall. In my memories the Haze 15 was great. When one came along, I jumped on it and brought it home. However the tone disappointed me greatly. Compared to my Vintage Modern 50 Watt 2x12” combo it was pretty sad actually. So the 2266C stood and the Haze 15 went (again). It looked cool though…
