    Thoughts on this 76 Marshall on Reverb

    A few mods...I believe you could find an up to 73 JMP non master volume head for that amount, and that‘s a whole other amp, at least IMO.

    Attenuator question

    When I played a Master Volume Marshall JMP with an attenuator I always cranked the Master and generally also cranke the pre :) IMO that‘s what attenuators are for. Power tube saturation, which you will not get with the Master turned down...but maybe I‘m wrong...

    Favorite Bedroom Tube Amp

    SF Vibro Champ and a Gibson/Maestro GA45 that sounds just spectacular and extremely fat at low volumes

    ? For those who use two amps

    Lehle or Radial - these work greatly from my experience The cheap ones can be a hit or miss...maybe they will work nicely, but maybe they will drive you nuts with noise and hum...playing two amps is a beautiful experience. Try one running your effects into and the other completely dry

    School me on the Mesa Mk I... reissue?

    Had a couple of those in the early 90‘s. Great amps. I did run mine with 2 EL34 and 2 6V6 (when in tweed mode). As for value I think around 1k must be good to find one. But beware....they are small but feel like glued to the floor....HEAVY!

    derek trucks and his current amps

    I think it depends on the venue. A SR in a smaller club or rehearsal room is a loud beast, but put it up on a big, open stage with lots going on and you struggle to hear it. I had the fortune to play bigger stages and had to put my 50W JMP Marshall or my SR running on 8 in the monitors as I...

    derek trucks and his current amps

    Just watched the Fireside sessions....wow..great in the stripped down version. Looks like a Pro Reverb or Vibrolux to me...I belive a Twin would be overkill in that environment

    Does anyone here use head amp wider than cabinet (i.e. kind of like a T)?

    I had a2x12 narrower than my Marshall head. Sound was great but I hated the look so I got another cab. I know it‘s stupid....

    pretty much says it all about the super reverb.

    Have my 68 SR for about 25 years now and it‘s the only amp I never ever even remotely thought of selling.

    What happens if you become content with your gear?

    You spend more time playing than hanging on forums like this one ;)

    celestion classic lead 80 experts... please school me

    Yes there were GB versions. Had a couple of those in late 80‘s/early 90‘s in a 2x12 cab with a Marshall JMP 50 W head. Those were the first reissues of th G12 80 speakers. Great speakers, loud, and kinda unforgiving, almost like the EV. As for china vs. GB I believe most are urban legends. They...

    Speaker sensitivity ( 97db vs 100 db )

    I don‘t have a direct experience with this combo, but once I had a 2x12 loaded with V30‘s and a 4x12 loaded with Blackbacks (the 70‘s Greenbacks). With the same amp, same volume, the 4x12 was lower in perceived volume than the 2x12...but I often set up two amps in stereo where one is lower in...

    The Mighty Micro Cube

    Had one, loved it and also used it at a gig once with my Reso using the direct out. Worked flawlessly. Perfect amp for home use an jamming along with music

    Help. I need an attenuator for my Super Reverb

    I used a 4Ohm HotPlate for years with my SR and i worked fine and was also said to be safe by THD. Opposed to that I also had an Ultimate Attenuator with the special 2 Ohm switch that let me down two times of two I used it. Nothing really bad but some conmection fried in the amp....

    Do you prefer an attenuator or a pedal for at home low volume overdrive/distortion?

    Pedal on a small tube amp for me, because it‘s simplier and to me attenuators are there for cutting just a litlle bit of volume in big amps for band-playing

    A good bedroom amp for $600 or less

    600 is a lot for a bedroom amp. If it was me I would go for a SF VibroChamp. A few pedals and you‘re set Otherwise between the Katanas, Yamahas, Roland Cubes you have nice amps for little $ and modern features like aux in to play along, integrated effects etc

    Tremolo not working properly

    So I might check with a new tube...if it‘s not working I might bring it to a tech...

    Tremolo not working properly

    Didn‘t think about the caps...I always thought bad caps make the amp also sound weak, which isn‘t the case. I changed the caps a few years back and the amp sounds strongan bold

    Tremolo not working properly

    In my ancient Maestro GA45 the tremolo is not working properly anymore. When I switch it on it stays deep and nice for a second then flattens much and is barely audible anymore. Could it just be the tube? Beeing a strang 6SQ7 tube I don‘t have a spare but wanted some input before buying. Or...

    Speakers are everything

    Never understood the bad rep of V30‘s...Great speakers and not only for high gain

    What is the best Combo amp for all around gigging clubs

    Alessandro Working Dog. I played a Rottweiler once and regret very much not buying it. GREAT sound and extremely lightweight due to the Neo speaker that was in it
