Real Marshall tube tone in an affordable, portable combo.
The format and versatility of the 1x12 40W Marshall Haze combo makes it the perfect partner for guitarists
looking for a gig-worthy compact workhorse with enough features, power, and tone capabilities to handle a wide variety of
situations. The cabinet is finished in high-grade vinyl with protective corners. Its vintage-style baffle is covered in a
hand-stretched, acoustically transparent fret cloth, and the cabinet is finished with white piping and hard-wearing cabinet
furniture to ensure your Marshall MHZ40C looks great.
With its EL34 power stage and ECC83 powered preamp, this portable
40W combo is designed to deliver to the guitarist's expectations through
the power and feel of its tubes. Laid out in a top-loaded format, the Marshall Haze sports 2 distinctive footswitchable channels.
In normal mode the tone circuitry of the Haze 40W provides low-gain sounds that are crisp and honest, providing a really nice
clean tone. Dialed from a single volume control, the normal channel provides ample headroom to play at volume without losing
the definition of your guitar.
The amp's boost switch in normal mode pushes the lower shapes of your tone by adding
more gain and extra punch in the lower midsection for a fuller sound, perfect for fattening up thinner-sounding single coil
pickups. The bright switch delivers added sparkle enhancing upper range of your guitar's sound and adding a crisper edge
and more defined, brighter feel. Combined, the boost and bright switches will allow you to push the normal channel so that
it stands out above the unmodified normal sound.
The overdrive channel of the Marshall Haze 40W delivers a classic
tone option with a separate gain control. It's possible to dial in preamp drive that distorts the sound and makes it easy
to access that more aggressive rock and blues attitude without losing the definition of your guitar. The addition of the boost
switch to the overdrive sound really pushes you into lead territory with sustain to spare, ensuring that you can access that
extra punch when required.
Both the normal and overdrive channels on the Marshall Haze amp use a shared 3-band EQ,
allowing you to individually adjust the treble, midrange, and bass to suit your taste.
The effects section of the
Haze MHZ40C combo contains custom-voiced effects and reverb that have been specially designed by Marshall to complement the
feel and tone of the amplifier. Each effect selected on the channel (normal, overdrive and overdrive boost) will be remembered
when you return to the channel, meaning you can set up your clean, overdrive, and lead sounds and return to them over and
over again without having to readjust your settings. The warm emulated spring reverb has its own independent control, allowing
you to add in as much or as little reverb as required. For those who want to completely remove the reverb circuitry from the
equation, the reverb control is fitted with a positive off switch, meaning that by rotating the control counter-clockwise
you can feel the control click indicating that the reverb circuitry is switched off.
Effects are selected using the
top panel button and indicated by the color of the LED. Green indicates that Echo effect is selected, orange shows that Vibe
is selected, red indicates Chorus. Effect depth and adjust controls allow considerable flexibility in a simple format for
ease of use.
