Hey Guys,
Sorry for posting another amp topic, but I have always been pleased with the responses the people have given me and others with regards to opinions and questions. I have decided that I am gonna buy a ADA MP-1 or 2 preamp. I was wondering whether or not it would sound ok if instead of buying a seperate power amp, if I could just run it through my Marshall Super Lead Plexi. Simply because I dont have the money to buy a seperate tube power amp. would it mess up with the preamp section of my marshall? Any suggestions or replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If that amp has an FX loop you can simply bypass the preamp by going guitar -> ada -> fx return on amp.

Well there are so many ebay used gear about poweramp ADA ROCKTRON VELOCITY old MESA low cost great sound.But if you wanna try ada pre with marshall ok you must put it in the input of marshall but you must set the sound of marshall and then put the ada .Very good clean sound and so ada.
But buy a poweramp 20+20 or 3+3 or -1+-1 but a stereo poweramp with a stereo cab.
