MRH159 Brown Sound by Nembrini Audio

Nembrini Audio released MRH159 Brown Sound... the least interesting guitar-thing-name I've ever heard. Seriously. Guitar-thing-names are supposed to be fun. They usually are! Brown Sound? That just sounds like some juvenile nonsense, like the Mythbuster's Brown Note. MRH159 Brown Sound arrives with AUv3, Inter-App Audio, and a Variac Variable Transformer to reduce the main voltage to 90V.

MRH159 Brown Sound

Mrh159 Brown Sound Guitar Amplifier plugin modeled on a vintage Marshall Super Lead 1959* 100W which is arguably the most famous amp of all time. A Super Lead 100W at top two of 4 x 12 cabs is still for many players the definitive rock guitar rig.



In the Mrh159 Brown Sound Guitar Amplifier plugin there is the possibility to switch to a modded Marshall Super Lead 1959* for achieve the legendary BROWN SOUND.

With two channels, the Mrh159 Brown Sound Guitar Amplifier plugin gives you the tools to create your perfect tone. Channel one is voiced for a higher treble response and channel 2 for a normal response. Each channel has it’s own loudness option and two inputs.


Changes on the stock amplifier for achieve the legendary BROWN SOUND:

- Variac Variable Transformer to reduce the main voltage to 90V
- EL34 tubes changed with 6CA7 Fat Bottle
- Middle tone stack potentiometer changed to 50K ohm
- Fat cap 25uF on V2 tube

The Mrh159 Brown Sound guitar amplifier plugin includes a complete recording chain emulation and our custom design noise gate circuit.


Works as a standalone app, AudioUnit v3 effect, or Inter-App Audio effect

It's a good demo, but I was kind of disappointed at the suppression of guitar skills showboating. It's one of the things I enjoy about the Nembrini demo vids. This does let you A/B the differences in the tone settings, but still.
So you know Tim that is not a name they made up. I knew it instantly as a Marshall emulation, so it is good marketing to those who are familiar with it.
The “brown sound” thing was sought after and developed by Eddie Van Halen. It is based on under powering tube amps. If you are familiar with the distorted sound a tube amp makes as it dies from switching off the power that is what he was after. Problem was tubes starved for voltage are short lived.
At least that is how I understand it.

I've seen various references to "starved tube" types of overdrive. I didn't realize it compromised tube life.
I forget to mention the name refers to the term “brown-out”.

Thank you very much everyone for all of the new guitar info! I love it when I learn things from my site too!
Later on, in the early 90’s Peavey created the 5150 for EVH to replace his Marshall’s.

It sounded incredible to my ears, and as a metal guitarist I really wanted one, and so did all of my peers.

I was going to comment that, because of my Peavy TransTubeFex guitar effects processor, I know that the word “brown” is associated with a specific guitar sound...

...but other people who know more than me already got to it. 😅

I'm super impressed by all the comments here. I guess all of my years of trying to cater to audiences beyond my own synth interests are starting to pay off. In the very early years of the site, I worried that it would just be Synthtopia Jr.

It's amazing to see that guitarists have stuck with me to such a great extent. My reporting on "guitar things" is less Pulitzer, and more furtive. But there are enough of you that there's somehow a critical mass of guitarists!

Don’t give me too much credit. While I own a guitar and several guitar effects units, I am not remotely a guitarist. 😅
