Great British-style tone in a tube-powered 1x12 combo.

The MVP23 is the perfect combination of classic American cleans and smooth British overdrive. The MVP23 is a hand-wired in USA, all-tube 1x12 combo with a full tone stack that is voiced squarely in the black face camp. The MVP-23 utilizes a special phase inverter and EL84 power section allowing players to choose between big clean punch and smooth overdriven tones just by turning the gain knob. This amp is perfect for the player that wants to paint a variety of different styles without compromise. The gain structure on the MVP-23 was designed to make the amp extremely sensitive to your pick attack and volume control. Even at its highest gain settings great cleans can be had with a turn of your guitars volume.

The MVP23 output power is controlled with Morgan’s Power level circuitry. The Power Level control is a big part of the magic. Most guitarists today have spent large sums of money and even more amounts of time working on their pedal boards. Most pedals are not designed to be used with a tube amp on “1”. They were designed to interact with the amplifier at or near the point at which it begins to break up. That is why an overdrive pedal is called an “over” drive. It is driving the amp over that point. Unfortunately that volume can be too loud for most live applications.

The Power Level control on the MVP23 solves this. Think of conventional master volumes as a spigot on a garden hose, they choke off the signal to the power section of the amp to a usable level. Most conventional master volumes also affect the way your pedals interact with your amp. The Power Level control behaves like a zoom lens. It limits the size of the output signal that can be produced by the output tubes. It does NOT choke the signal down and, therefore, behaves identical as if the amp were running at full volume. This means that you can choose the power that you need, anything from 1/4W to 23W.

At the heart of the MVP23 combo is a 16-ohm, 12-in. Celestion G12H75 Creamback speaker that delivers the delivers the perfect blend of midrange tones that will allow you to cut through any mix. The cabinet is made of a void-less Baltic birch ply cab that utilizes a fixed baffle to transfer the speaker energy to the entire cabinet. You will be amazed at the amount of bass from this cab. To finish it off wrap the cab in Morgan's twilight finish, a proprietary custom ballistic vinyl covering that is vulcanized to the wood to ensure long lasting durability.

    Comments about Morgan Amplification MVP23 23W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have played and owned many tube amps, but this handwired boutique amp is simply amazing! From snarling Marshall tones to Chimy Cleans, (especially the David Gilmour tones), this amp delivers it on a silver platter.

    The Scalable Power feature allows you to dial down the output to bedroom levels while keeping the saturated tone intact. And what tone it has!!! This is a beautiful design, quality product, and all at a great price!!!

    The only things I could wish that it had, that it doesn't, is the built in Morgan reverb and an effects loop. I ended up buying a Hall Of Fame II reverb pedal, so all is good

    Comments about Morgan Amplification MVP23 23W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp from Musician's Friend couple of months ago and have been playing it during that time.

    What tones!! From overdriven (no pedals) crunch to well-rounded clean, this amp does them extremely well.

    There are few reviews (all positive) of this amp on youtube, and it is not a hype when some of these pro demonstrators are searching for words to express the surprise and how good this amp is.

    Not a cheap amp but it is worth every penny for the tones, craftmanship and quality of materials used.
