Nembrini Audio presents the new MRH159, a software emulation of the popular Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp. It has that typical vintage character we all love as guitarists, and that Van Halen Brown Sound that we all chase.
Nembrini Audio MRH159
This emulation can generate clean tones, but really, what we are after are those overdrive tones. The sound of a Marshall Super Lead 1959 with 4 x 12 cabs in a plugin format is exactly what the doctor ordered. Regardless of your playing style. And right now you can get it for a great introductory price. The virtual version is available as a plug-in for macOS, Windows, and even as an iOS app, for just 39 Euros!
It means you can now get the Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amps straight into your DAW. And due to the company’s proven track record for making great-sounding virtual amps, expect a useful tool for your virtual rig. It also emulates that famous “Brown Sound“, something Eddie Van Halen stumbled upon in the ’70s and is now sought after by many guitar players.
Nembrini Audio MRH159: a virtual Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp
Tweaked to perfection
You get two channels to imitate the sound and layout of the original Marshal amp: Channel 1 is responsible for the high frequencies and Channel 2 for the “normal” sound. There’s also a Variac Variable Transformer to get you that Brown Sound by starving the circuit of voltage, a 6CA7 Fat Bottle tube (instead of EL34 power valve ), a change in resistance and a Fat cap 25uF for the tube. All this helps to refine the overdrive and get you those classic rock gain tones you hear on records.
Whilst you are checking out this new amp simulation, you may as well download Nembrini Audio’s free Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive based on the legendary Klon pedal, which we wrote about back in May. It can be a lot of fun to throw an overdrive at the front end of a Marshall amp, and get some extra tones with this virtual pedal.
