OVERVIEW

Compact design, all-tube tone, and onboard effects.

The Marshall Haze MHZ15 tube guitar amp head is brimming with 15W of power, iconic looks, and most of all, exemplary Marshall tone. This compact all-tube head features effects, reverb, and classic looks without a big footprint.

The Haze is covered in a vintage-style vinyl and fitted with protective corners. The hand-stretched baffle fretcloth, with its white piping finish, matches the complementing Haze cabinets, meaning you can combine it with 1 or 2 of them to create one cool-looking mid-sized stack.

Just because the Marshall Haze head is smaller than a standard tube head doesn't mean that it's quiet or lacking in power or tone that you expect from a Marshall amp”its 15W of all-tube power guarantees you the full Marshall experience.

The head is driven by an ECC83 preamp stage and 6V6 power amp stage, combining to create fantastic tube tone that belies its size.

The Haze 15 has both normal and overdrive channels with a shared EQ and onboard effects, providing a versatile sound set and delivering an all-tube tone in a compact package that performs just like an all tube amplifier should.

Designed in the same style as traditional Marshall Head amplifiers, the 2 distinctive footswitchable channels of the 15W Haze amplifier offer a variety of tonal possibilities. The Normal mode has bags of headroom and provides a rich and organic clean sound.

With the Overdrive channel the Haze amp head delivers a warm overdriven tone, and its separate Gain control makes it possible to dial in preamp drive, distorting your tone before it reaches the power stage to deliver a more gritty rock tone.

A Bright switch is shared between both the Normal and Overdrive channels. When engaged it lifts the overall sound achieved adding extra bite and sparkle and defining the edge of your tone when you need it.

Both the Normal and Overdrive channels use a shared 3-band EQ, allowing you to adjust the treble, middle, and bass response to suit your taste.

The effects section of the Haze 15 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 will be remembered when you return to the channel, meaning you can set up your clean and overdrive 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 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. Rotating the control counter-clockwise you will feel a click indicating that the reverb circuitry is disengaged.

The 3 selectable effects in the Haze 15 reflect the overall feel of the tone available and have been designed to work with the tone of the amplifier to ensure that every one feels rich and satisfying.

Effects are selected using the front panel effects button and indicated by the color of the LED. Green indicates that Echo effect is selected, orange shows that Vibe is selected, and Red indicates Chorus. By using the effect level control you can determine just how much of the effect you want in your sound.

This amp head is simple to use and its familiar layout means that you won't have to spend forever figuring out how to use it. Every Marshall Haze 15 is supplied with its own 2-way footswitch, so you don't have to use the front panel to change channels or switch the effects on or off, simply stomp your preferences like a true pro.

For years I have carried gear around that is too heavy and too powerful for the job and I was always having to turn down my old faithful JCM800 4104 combo; it never got to ?breathe?.So I bought the Haze 15 and matching speakers and it has been awesome!Firstly, the sound - The cleans are really chimey, but turn the volume up and that ACDC bite comes in, all at a volume that doesn?t get me complaints.The overdrive is more than enough. At about 6 on the dial, there is as much OD as my old 800 with a tubescreamer. I only turn up beyond this for practice when I want a bit more sustain to make up for the lack of volume.I did not buy this amp for the effects, I was more interested in the fact that you can turn them completely off, but, I have started to use them on a couple of songs. I would never bother if it meant carrying around the pedals, but as they are built in, I use them. They sound fine.The last thing is the cabinets. These took a while to break in, but then the cabinets can take 66 watts each, so the amp never really stresses them, but they sound nice and sweet now and, they make for a nice narrow rig which on some of the smaller stages I play on is great.In summary, this is the classic Marshall sound (think 60s to 80s not 90s onward) in a really practical package that kicks!

I've been playing for 38 years and this little amp has the right combination of tone/portability/features. Love this amp! Just as clean and bell like on the clean channel as my Mesa Boogie Maverick. Turn the clean channel up to 1 or 2 o'clock and control the volume with your guitar volume controls and you can play clean rhythm with the volume rolled back, and then switch to nice lead with distortion like a tube screamer by rolling the volume up.

I have three complaints - the high gain channel is too distorted at low settings, there is no STANDBY switch and there are limited outputs (see below). Gain can only be set to around 2-3 at the maximum or the sound turns to mush. It does sound great at low settings...think Hendrix on The Wind Cries Mary. Starts to break up early so a little gain goes a long way. However, this is not a metal amp so if that's your main style, then pass it up. More suitable for blues or rock.

The digital effects are nice to have and the vibe and chorus are particularly useful. The amp allows you to switch channels, and the switching is quick with no lag. Each channel remembers the effect that was previously used on that channel. The amp is quiet when turned up, and with good humbuckers there is practically no hum at high volumes.

The amp is plenty loud for a small venue. The key to sound and volume is to get efficient speakers. The speakers in the Marshall MHZ112A/B cab aren't that good. I've tried this through several cabs and the better the speakers the better the sound. The output is for a single 8 ohm speaker or a single 16 ohm speaker or two 16 ohm speakers. it would have been nice to have it accomodate a 4 ohm load so that it would have more flexibility, but thats not the case. The MHZ112A and MHZ112B are both 16 ohm speakers.

Great little amp with BIG tone

By LP&Strat2

from Northeast

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I've been playing nearly 35 years and have mostly owned tube combos. Picked up this head when the Haze15 was released and I love it. This is the first amp I've had where I don't need an overdrive pedal. The OD channel really rocks. Like many Marshall's, you have to give it a little volume to make her sing, but not too much; I value my hearing. The build quality is good; I've had no problems with it in nearly 1 1/2 years. I've found the on-board effects good enough that I don't need my pedalboard. Just a tuner pedal and the stock footswitch and let 'er rip! I highly recommend checking it out.

Amazing clean tone

By Telerific

from Big Rapids

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I bought a Haze 15 head and had to return it as the effects didn't work and the bottom was warped near the on/off switch. MF was great in assisting me with the return and I had a new one within 10 days. I purchased this head because I have never heard a better clean tone. I played through a Egnator Rebel 20 and a Vox Night Train when I was looking for an amp with great tone. The Egnator had no character and the Vox was very bright and harsh. I used to own an Ampeg VL1002 and a Mesa Tremoverb. The Mesa sounded amazing but still didn't have the clean tone of the Marshal Haze 15. The guy working at the music store brought in the Haze 15 and I couldn't believe how amazing the tones were. I had no idea this head existed-let alone that it had 6V6 power tubes. I ordered one that night from MF. I can't stop playing my guitar now. This is the tone I searched for, for the last 20 years.

Killer little head. Who doesn't need a little killer head?

By chris bell

from Charlotte Metro USA

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Can't beat it for the money and it is very easy to transport.
I have had all sort's of amp's . Used to believe you needed 50 watt's to be heard.I have had JVM's , JCM's , VOX , Fender and other's. This little head will give you the great tube sound that Marshall is known for. With two cabs hooked to it , you can hit the chorus and get a great Rush sound , the echo and vibe are cool FX too. Reverb is great with alot of ajustability. You may think that 15 watt's will not be enough for you , but that is bull. You could play anything up to a ampitheater with the stack. It get's that loud....and clear, or dirty, or whatever you want. Build Quality is good , just wish these amp company's would get away from these plastic input and output jack's. Great , Marshall look's and it make's a killer stack if you get the matching cabs. This may be the last amp I ever buy.
Just don't like the plastic input and output's but all amp companys are doing that these day's. Still does'nt make it right.
All you need .

True Marshall sound

By Rich-tmDnN

from Me

See all my reviews

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I think this amp sounds like a top of the line Marshall. If you like the way Marshall amps sound you'll love this one. The onboard effects are by passed completely if you dont want them, and they are very subtle anyway - not really over the top. I wrote this review because i can see there is some confusion: this amp isnt a single ended, class A, 5 watt amp. There are plenty of those around now (my favorite one is the VOX AC4.) if you really have to have a class A 5 watt amp, dont buy the MHZ15. I own one of these, bought it here at musicians freind and I am COMPLETELY satisfied with it. It seems as well made as the VOX and Orange stuff that is made in the same production facilities in Vietnam as this amp. If you like to use the best tubes it responds extremely well to that. The normal channel gives a very nice, clear clean with some really nice lows and very defined highs and mids. almost Fender-ish. The Normal channel will also Overdrive into some real sweet sounding dirt. The OD channel on Normal channel overlap a bit ( like a good tube amp will) and completely dimed the OD channel does some great sounding marshall chunk and lead tones. no flabby bass notes, or mushy, ill defined high notes. I generally dont like to write amp reviews because the HI-FI amp snobs dump on anything that didnt cost more than you could afford, and the tube newbies want to tell you that their 75 dollar made in china amp sounds "way better" than the amp your trying to review. I think this amp is a great value and I have been playing and buying gear since 1978. I have owned almost a dozen Marshall tube amps and this amp sounds to me like some of the better ones. I recommend it all the way.

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I started looking for an amp to play at open mic nights at our local pub. I was tired of carrying a big combo up the flight of stairs. I considered the Blues Jr. but it didn't have the tones or meat to suit my blues tunes...go figure. Since I had a Haze 40 combo and have had no issues with it in the year of ownership I started looking into the 15 watt head and both seperate cabs. I considered the Orange head and cab, but they are to in your face distortion for my style of music. Don't get me wrong, this thing will distort "when you want it to". Ok, the musicians over on the Marshall forum beat this series and the MA series to death because they are made over seas. Back to the good...I can now carry my head and guitar up the stairs much easier and go back for the other cab. The first night out with it I was amazed how it kept up with the band.... and we are friggen loud in that venue. After the first set and taking a break, people were coming up not beleiving all that was coming out of my set up and I only brought one cab!. There's no effects loop but the built in delay,chorus, and reverb do the job well enough for what I do. It's a shame Marshall is discontinuing these models. If portabilty and decent tone and bang for the $$ look no further there's not many around any more. The only thing I would suggest if you purchase the cabs is replacing the Chinese Celestions with something else like greenbacks or the Cannibus Rex.

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

The Haze 15 is an excellent alternative to larger and heavier Marshall heads. It gets plenty loud for most performance purposes, is well-built, offers classic Marshall tube-based sound supplemented with usable on-board effects, and slots nicely between lunchbox-size heads and full-size rigs which weigh a ton and put out more power than can be reasonably used in most venues.

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

There're not many good things I can say about this amp. The clean tones are thin and brittle. The distortion channel sounded like someone screaming and vomiting simultaneously. All that needs to be said. The quality is also not very good. It is very cheap looking and the knobs are wobbly and cheap. If your looking for a nice tube amp in this class, I recommend the Vox Night Train or or the Orange Tiny Terror.

Ask me a question

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Had to return after 4 days of playing. It lost the volume control completely. Dead Dead!
The replacement is fantastic. I absolutely love the sound of this amp. I competes with any boutique amp I have played or previewed. If you are looking for late 60's, 70's and early 80's rock (not so much metal) this is the amp for you. Gets very loud and responsive when turned up. It needs to be cranked to get the tubes juices flowing.
This Haze 15 head compliments most any quality open back cab. The Haze cabs are ok, but not the best quality. Cheap wood construction,made of chip core.
I would recommend this head to anyone looking for a clean or good blues amp. After the initial kink in quality and am extremely happy.
Useable effects and 2 channels
Need better quality control
Reasonable

Boutique vibe, marshall name

By brian dennigan

from New York

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

First, two channels. EQ and effects work with both. Foot switchable (included). Different cab combinations possible. You can use this amp for bedroom practice or club work.may not get you the metal crunch you're lookin for but for rock, blues or jazz.its there in spades. Effects memory once dialed in. Like I said boutique vibe Marshall sound.
Perfect club amp. Two channels and nearly infinite sounds. Clean or dirt, it's all here. Portability, looks, sound all in one package. Purchased the restock to save some bucks and had no issues. Plug and play right out of the box.
Two channels, effects, foot peddle. What else do you need. Especially if your a plugs and play guy (or gal).
Big bang for the restock buck. Marshall sound and name. Portable, looks, sound.

GIGANTIC TONE FOR A SMALL HEAD

By MotoGP500

from LOS ANGELES

See all my reviews

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I know...you're probably thinking, how can a little 15 watt head compare to a big full size half or full stack on stage? Well the answer is simple. IT DOES. If you like that classic 70's Marshall Plexi (single volume control) sound ala Humble Pie, Deep Purple, et. all, this is it. And believe me, as a gigging professional, this will hold up to any club back line you can imagine. In bigger venues you can mike it. Tons of volume, tons of headroom, the sweetest tone you've ever heard and easy to transport. For those of you who like a more smooth bore 80's Metal tone, crank the gain to 10 and put a tube screamer in front of it and it WILL peroform. And for those who live for the "Dime" SS tone, put a Keely modded MT-2 Metal Zone pedal in front and you absolutely have that Dimebag scream. This amp can do it all, and very, very loud as well. The clean tone as well has so much body and Marshall cadence that it's sick. I recommend this amp so highly that t is now a permanent part of my collection (which is extensive). The key is of course, how well do you really play? Really??? And, how good are your instruments. I have used this (so far) with my Modded USA Strat (with SD Hotrails), Stock 1972 Les Paul (heavenly), and my Dean Dime ML with SD Dimebuckers. Every guitar sounds like it should, not like the amp dictates as so many horrible solid state amps do. Remember, Brian May and many others used very small wattage amps to achieve their trademark monster tones. Bottom line: A GREAT HEAD AND A TOTAL STEAL FOR TH PRICE.

I know...you're probably thinking, how can a little 15 watt tube head compare to a half or full stack 100w on stage? Well the answer is simple. IT DOES. If you like that classic 70's Marshall Plexi (single volume control) sound, ala Humble Pie, Deep Purple, etc., this is it. And believe me, as a gigging professional, this will challenge any club back line you can imagine. In bigger venues you can mike the cabs. I?m running my head through a 1960 vintage 4x12 and it sounds unreal.Tons of volume, tons of headroom, the sweetest tone you've ever heard and easy to transport. For those of you, who like a more smooth bore processed 80's metal tone, crank the gain to 10 and put a tube screamer in front of it and it WILL perform. And for those who live for the "Dimebag" solid state tone, put a Keely modded MT-2 Metal Zone pedal in front and you absolutely have that Dimebag scream. This amp can do it all, and very well. The onboard effects (vibe, chorus and echo) are phenomenal as is the vintage reverb.The clean channel has so much body and Marshall cadence that I found myself laughing with joy. I recommend this amp so highly that t is now a permanent part of my collection (which is extensive). One key equation is of course, how well do you really play? Really??? And, how good are your instruments. I have used this (so far) with my USA Strat (fitted with Seymour Duncan Hotrails), my stock 1972 Les Paul (heavenly), and my Dean Dime ML with a SD Dimebucker. Every guitar sounds like it should, not like the amp dictates as so many horrible solid-state amps do. Tube sound will always rule if you know how to dial in the tone. Solid state makes everything sound the same and has no feel. No need to worry here. Remember, Brian May and many others used very small wattage tube amps to achieve their trademark monster tones. Bottom line: A GREAT HEAD AND A TOTAL STEAL FOR THE PRICE.

unbelievable amp (w/ cab)

By dmmd_1

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Best amp I've ever owned. Not a "professional", just someone who's been playing for a long time and always trying to get better. I am an adult though and I can tell you this is arguably the best sound you can get in the price range. I own a Vox, and Fender Blues Deville Tube amp, and I can't stop playing this. If you want Marshall tube tone, clean or overdriven, you cannot go wrong with this baby. Gets loud if you need it, but keeps tone down too. Can't reiterate how great this amp/cab combo is. I've been searching for this sound forever and finally found it!

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Well, I've been playing guitar since the '70's. All types of music but I love Page, Townshend, Howe, Hackett, to name a few. My chief amp has been the Marshall AVT50 for years as I loved the tone and it got plenty loud. I decided to try this Haze (as you probably are considering buying) since I could finally get a pure tube Marshall for under 600 bucks. I've had it a week. My first gig with it was a few days ago in a small club via 4 Vintage 30's. THIS THING SOUNDS GREAT! I was wondering how it could improve over the AVT. The answer lies chiefly in the punch. My AVT always got loud and had that Marshall tone, but this little lady takes that a couple steps further. Really hard to describe but let it suffice to say that if and when you buy one, turn it to moderate gain and volume and hit the E chord. You'll know what I mean. This is no offense to the AVT line - they are excellent in my opinion. But this amp is definitely superior - and for only an extra coupla hundred bucks. I'm gonna keep this baby forever. Well done Marshall!

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Being a working musician for many years, and a ton of gear. This amp really, really, impressed me. Right out of the box I took it to a jam. And surrouded by new and vintage Fenders, a Vox AC30, a new Traynor, and a Carvin combo. This little power house, was freakin' everyone out! All I was playing through was a small 1x10 with a Celestion vitage 30, as this was a very small venue and there wasn't much room for more than that. I actually was asked to turn down! The on-board effects couldn't have worked better. Reverb, Chorus, and Vibe, All very reponsive, and easy to adjust. When I cranked up the normal channel it turns into that vintage rock/blues riff tone that my '72 50 watt plexy does, only at a 15 watt volume. And being a blues jam the only time I kicked in the over drive channel was to beef up my bottle neck playing. This little amp is a killer and a must for any tone head who is always inserch of that "Golden Tone"! And just when you think I would be done there's the overdrive channel. The over drive puts it over the edge. Now It doesn't give you a ton of heavy metal saturation, but it does give you heavy sustain, and controlable feed back. And this also depends on the type of pickups your playing. The posibilitys are endless. An incredable little amp. Now the down sides, and believe me there aint many. No standby switch, no effects loop, no line out. And I would like more foot switch accessability to the effects. Reverb is not footswitchable. And you can only tune in two of the effects at a time. If you needed the Vibe for a tune in the set you gotta reach back and do it. I like them at a touch of a foot switch. Now if you go with the Haze 40 watt. It does have a few of the options the 15 is missing. But I'm parshall to 6v6's over the el34's in the 40 watt. But with all that said I will learn to live with it I plan on using this amp a lot and I work 8-12 nights a month.

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I received my Haze 15 head about a week ago and am very pleased. I was worried this amp would not have the power and volume to gig with, but it is plenty LOUD and will easily handle small venues without being mic'd. The clean channel ispristine, warm and lively. The overdrive is very good for Classic Rock type tones, but this is not a high gain amp, you will need a pedal for Metal. It makes a little noise at higher volumes, but that is true with all tube amps. I find the effects and reverb to be very good and quite usable, I love the way you can set your effect and reverb for one channel, switch to the other channel, set up a different effect and reverb and the amp remembers your settings, great feature. The bright switch is very useful, I find I need to use bright on with my Les Paul and SG, take bright off with my Strat and Tele. The EQ section works well and this amp produces plenty of low end. I use this amp with a 1 X 12 with Celestion Gold, 1 X 12 with Eminence 125, and 2 X 12 with Celestion V30s. The amp will sound a little different depending on the speaker cab used, but sounds good through everything. It seems very well built, and weighs 20 lbs., very portable. The footswitch works well. All in all a great little amp that gets that Marshall tone we all love.

Disappointing

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 15W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

When you're looking for an amp in this class, you need to find something that has a great basic tube tone. You don't need extras like digital effects or even channel switching. You just need an amp that sounds great when it's cranked with a pedal or without. I tried the MARSHALL HAZE and the BLACKSTAR HT out of curiousity with their 1x12 cabs to compared to the BLACKHEART LITTLE GIANT(that I own). The Blackheart Little Giant is still the best in terms of tone and low end punch. It's also a less expensive. I wasn't impressed with the BLACKSTAR HT either, it sounded thin like the MARSHALL and not as warm as the BLACKHEART LITTLE GIANT. Save your money and time and buy the Blackheart Little Giant. Playing for 20 years and it's my favorite amp!
