They move and settle and land up offering no protection on most sides.
Just got an amp delivered and the amp was jiggling around easily inside...
For retail the price seems like a reasonable asking. I play a Super Lead. Nothing touches the 100watters.
Never played one but the scoop is that they sound great.
ps: Even thought it's only 20 watts you might want to consider an attenuator...
In terms of NOS stock - I think this guy is the king
There are machines for testing tubes. I'm not 100% sure...
Anytime a player gets to be there when the tech or builder is doing stuff, there's a huge benefit.
I had a Super Reverb that when I put in new...
With my Ultimate Attenuator I run my Super Lead with the channels jumpered, volumes on 7=8. I think I've got some power tube distortion happening.
I loved my master volume Soldanos when I was playing them.
But I love my NMV vintage Marshall with the Ultimate more.
Just personal taste
You need to hear it to understand how well it works. It's all in what the ears say.
The glow keeps yout tone electrons warm and happy.
I would call Jim (scumback) directly and let him help you select the best speakers. His stuff is SO good sounding. Maybe a bit more bucks but I...
Do you do your own biasing or use a tech? I've often found Fender harshness = cold bias.
Time for new power tubes maybe?
I thought my '68 50 watt Marshall plexi was the ultimate amp but I kept reading about the big cleans that only the 100 watters have.
Bought a '72...
My '72 Super Lead with my 2 volume Ultimate Attenuator is perfect.
The UA manages the volume issue. The SL has stunning big Marshall cleans and...
Metro and Germino seem to own the rep for closest to originals.
My '62 non-Top Boost. If I wasn't such a Les Paul/Marshall guy, this would have been my #1. But I sold it so at least someone would use it. No...
You'll be getting advice to
1) Skip the Marshall reissues - get a Germino or Metro clone.
2) There has been a bit of a revolution in attenuators...
You kick most serious ass. WOW!
Here's my '72.
My buddy was hugelpressed with how versatile my '72 Super Lead is. As he said,
"hey - you can even play country with this amp". He was Super...
Just noticed the red voltage selector. Never saw one of those in my life but it does look original to the amp. Export makes sense.
65, maybe early 66 but probably not.
The tranny dates are key.
That SR was the biggest amp disappointment of my life. I retubed and redid the preamp tubes also but the amp just never sounded like a great SR...
GREAT tone and control. Really nice.
