    Default Comparison vid PRS MT15 vs Marshall Studio Classic vs Orange Brent Hinds

    Since I cant actually play these, this vid does a good job comparing them. (dirty only though) So many guys make vids and run all kind of effects and such. I found this helpful and though maybe someone else may too.

    Which do you like? I really prefer the Marshall. Tho the Orange surprised me..

    In my opinion, he had the PRS dialed in all wrong. The amp sounds much better than what he did with it.

    I thought it sounded good, but just kind of weak. Yeah, def coulda been the settings. I expected more from it , esp with the 6l6 tubes.
    You tried one?

    Yes I've owned one since July 2018. The sound he got out of it is by far the worst representation of the MT15 I've heard yet.

    Same here just weak and lackluster the way he had it set. Not even close to what I was getting in the local shop with that amp on the MT15!!

    The Orange flubbed out badly on palm mutes, typical Orange. I don't get the MT15 hate here, it did the Recto thing fairly well, good lower-mid heft. The Marshall had the best cut and the least saturation, although it's odd that he had the gain knob less than all the way up given that, judging from the other two amps, he wanted more gain and saturation.

    I've heard that PRS sound a lot better ..never heard/played one in person though. Otherwise, nice comprehensive demo. The Orange was pretty good & so was the Marshall..

    I have very similar tastes to Ascension, and I know you/he was very impressed with the MT15. I was suprised it sounded so bland in this vid, so I figured it is a settings thing. Just Like Mesas. They are legendary amps, with LOTS of supporters. The couple Ive played were NOT impressive.... BUT....... Ive also heard you have to spend alittle time to dial them in, and I didnt have that luxury.

    Since Im an 80s metal fan boy, I still want a JCM800, so the small one would be cool for me. I surely dont need one, but want one.. I love the tone, but mostly just the nostalgia of the JCM800. seeing all those stacks when I used to go to concerts..

    I love my MT 15. It’s crazy loud, on gain channel with master barely at 10 o’clock it tears your head off. I play it through a 212 closed back vertical cab with Celestion 75’s. Gain 12 o’clock, treble 1 o’clock, mids 10 to 11 o’clock, Bass 10 o’clock, master presence 1 o’clock. I found it a little finicky with certain guitars and pickups. Definitely likes higher output IMO. Yes, dark and lots of low mids. Check out the review that Andertons in UK did. It’s about 25 min long and they did a great job showcasing the tones.

    The thing in particular I was surprised by with the MT 15 was how responsive and dynamic it was. Really cleaned up well with the guitar volume control and touch. I ran it head to head with a 5150 50 watt EL 34 amp, the Marshall Origin, and the 20 watt JCM 800. I liked the JCM 800 a lot but it had no clean channel + was twice the $ . The tones were different the MT 15 more compressed and smooth with a much bigger fatter tone which is more what I need. The MT 15 also has a fantastic clean channel. It feels more like a really good more expressive Boogie Rec than a Marshall so it was a little apples to oranges. What surprised me though was the supposedly 15 watt MT 15 was as loud on the same cab as the 50 watt 5150 or at the least sure seemed to be.

    I see the same thing with my MT15 on the guitars and pickups. Absolutely HATED the Dimarzio set in my ST 300 way to dark compressed and loose sounding with them.
    Great tones with the Alt8, Perpetual Burn and the Hybrid though.
