Marshall ORI5C Origin 5 5W 1x8 Combo Amplifier with FX Loop and Boost
Marshall Amplification Origin 5 5W 1x8 Combo Amplifier with FX Loop and Boost
The Marshall Amplification Origin 5 is a 5W combo amplifier intended for use with electric guitars. It utilizes a tube-powered design, with two ECC83 preamp tubes and one EL84 tube for the power amp. With an 8” Celestion Eight-15 speaker, the amp gives you a tone that screams Marshall, despite its relatively small size.This is a one channel amplifier with controls for bass, middle, treble, and volume.
Additionally, you’ll find a Tilt tone control, a filter independent from the main equalizer circuit. The Tilt knob changes the voice of the amp from a modern tone to a more vintage timbre. Furthermore, the volume knob plays host to a pull-boost feature which adds some extra gain into the signal, giving you the pleasant breakup of tube-based distortion.
With the included footswitch, you can control the pull boost with a tap of your toe. Turn your attention to the rear of the amplifier, and you'll notice 1/4" jacks for an external effects loop. This is useful for patching your outboard gear and pedals directly into the Origin 5's signal path.
Add a Boost
Using the foot-switchable gain boost, you can add that extra level of gain to generate overdriven Marshall tone. Without a footswitch, you can use the push-pull mechanism built into the volume knob.
This amp may only have one channel, but using the tilt control, you can blend your sound between normal and high treble voices.
Front-Panel Power Reduction Switch
Marshall's reducing technology, called Powerstem, allows you to utilize high or low power modes without affecting tonal quality.
