This half-stack may be compact, but it still delivers the trademark Marshall sound with its MHZ15 head and MHZ112 slanted cabinet.
Marshall MHZ15 Amplifier Head
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 huge footprint
The 15W 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 Haze amp 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 Haze 15 is driven by an ECC83 preamp stage and 6V6 power amp section, combining to create fantastic tube tone that belies its size.
The Marshall 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 the 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 15W 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 and delivering a more gritty rock tone.
There is a bright switch which is shared between both the normal and overdrive channels. When engaged the bright switch really 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 individually adjust the treble, middle, and bass response of the amplifier to suit your taste.
The effects section of the Haze MHZ15 contains custom-voiced effects and reverb that have been specially designed by Marshall to compliment 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, so by rotating the control counter-clockwise you can feel the control 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.
The Haze 15 is simple to use, and its familiar layout means that you won't have to spend forever figuring out how to use it. Every 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.
Marshall MHZ112 Slanted Speaker Cabinet
The MHZ112 speaker cabinet, in either straight- or slanted-front models, makes for a powerful component in any Marshall stack. This cabinet's 1x12, closed-back design follows the tried-and-true principles Marshall cabs have always followed. The speaker cab is given extra strength via finger-jointed construction, and the closed-back design ensures that even from such a small cabinet you can achieve that thick bass response and sharpness of mid tones that a Marshall cab delivers. Its Celestion G12-66 Marquee ensures that there's plenty of room to crank up your amp head and play hard without a fear of damaging the speaker.

Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 and MHZ112 Half Stack:
I have always wanted a Marshall Amp that did not pound you in the pocketbook and was so loud that your ears bled. The Haze 15 has not disappointed me in the least. This 2-channel amp is a real gem. The organization of the effects section is very cool. Using the 2-button footswitch gives you four distinct voices at your toe-tips. Rolling back on the guitar volume adds to your sound palette. The speaker cab is well-suited to the amp. Marshall definitely filled a void in their product line with the Haze series.
Two purely subjective observations -
1) This amp sounds better with my Les Paul than with a Stratocaster. On the other hand, the Strat complements my Billm-modded Blues Junior.
2) I actually hear a slight improvement in the tone with the reverb and effects completely turned off. This is not a criticism of the effects section. I just have not experienced this with any true-bypass effect pedals.
Musician'sFriend has a 45-day return policy, but I tore the tags off of this amp and stored the boxes in the attic in less than a week. A second cab is on my Christmas wish list.
The Haze 15 has all the features you need for 99% of the time.
The amp and cab seem to be well made. 3 year labor and 5 year parts warranty is good. I would pay an extra few bucks for metal jacks and switches, but everyone uses plastic now days.
I think the Haze 15 Half-Stack is a very good buy to get the Marshall sound.
Comments about Marshall Haze MHZ15 and MHZ112 Half Stack:
I highly recommend this amp and mini-stack. You've got to turn it up a bit to get the optimal tone but you'll be amazed at how authentic the Marshall tones are that come out of this amp.
This is the real deal, real Marshall rock sound, in a 15 watt, mini head. Crank this amp up and you've got instant vintage Marshall sound. The clean channel is one of the nicest, rich clean tones I've heard in any amp. Crank the clean channel and add an Overdrive or Distortion pedal and it comes to life. You can go from the bright clean tones to metal shred in this channel alone. It needs to be turned up a bit before the pedals really sound great but once you're there, it's great. The overdrive channel is pure classic 70's Marshall. Great crunch tones and singing sustain. It doesn't have quite the gain of the modern JVM type Marshalls but if you need to push the high gain envelope, it responds great to an overdrive or clean boost pedal (like the Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster that I use). The effects are superb as well. You are able to turn them off and take them out of the signal path if you want but this is one of the features here that sets this amp apart from the other mini heads. The reverb is very lush and full. The chorus/vibe/delay effect is as good as it gets. Each channel remembers the effects settings and maintains them as you switch back and forth. Add the chorus to the clean channel and it's amazing. I've had guys in the guitar store stop to look at what amp sounded so nice. Put the delay on and you've got the perfect solo set up. The other mini amp heads just can't compare. This gives you a LOUD 15 watts of power, multiple speaker options, 2 channels and reverb, delay, chorus and vibe - all foot switch controllable. The speaker cabs are perfect for the amp. They look and sound like their big brother Marshall cabs. Either version (slant or straight) produces a good amount of low end and punch your tone thru the mix without being overly mid-rangey. Both speaker cabs have a slightly different sound due to the speaker configuration and the fact that the base (straight) cab is a bit deeper.
The amp seems to be very well made. It looks and feels like any made in England Marshall. Mine is a year old and is operating flawlessly. Cabinets are solid and have nice side handles that made carrying them easy.
Again, this is the best small amp value out there. It has a very versatile tone, reverb and effects, 2 channels, ripping loud 15 watts and gig ready tone and volume. I've played gigs with a 6 piece band using this head. Either through it's own Marshall half stack speaker or a 2x12 cab -- it's superb.
