Up to eleven: Marshall MS-2

Calm and contemplative, not really: With the mini amplifier MS-2 from Marshall we do the same as the semi-fictional band »Spinal Tap« from the 80s and turn the knob up to eleven - just before Christmas.

Eleven: The number that stands for the extra push and the good sound. No wonder that the semi-fictitious band »Spinal Tap« set their controls to the prime number in the 80s. Admittedly: Their Marshall amplifier with knobs reaching up the special number is only a legend of pop culture. But its sound is more than real. Just like the current smallest offshoot of the traditional British brand, the MS2. Available in classic black, elegant white, rocky red or grey, the microbe AMP has it all despite its compact dimensions of 14 x 11 x 6 centimeters: powered either by a Power cable or a 9V battery, the MS-2 rocks not only visually but also acoustically.

And this, even though the RMS performance is officially only a whole watt. But in exchange, the MS-2 with overdrive mode and a belt clip is probably the most mobile amplifier you can buy. If that's not enough for you, the MS-4 can also get the double charge of electric guitar sound. Or, of course, with the help of Zuffenhausen, set the knob to (9)11. It's even more mobile than the MS-2 - and also provides good sound.
