Couldn't pass it up . I considered guttin it & builiding a 2x6v6 amp in there with tweed bassman front end
BUT, I thought it's still a stylish, cool piece o' Marshall history so I leavin it intact .
It didn't have the orig speakers in there ,which would've been small magnet G 12 30 or G 12L 35. I have many of those anyway , nothin fancy
I put 2 WGS Green Berets in it .

I find it's a good amp for hittin 70s rock tones like early Aerosmith, Bowie, T-Rex

Saved my ass when I blew a 65 onstage in my 4010 a few weeks ago

Cheers

I think it sounds OK on it's own ,however, it gets some really "serviceable" Marshall tone when you put a period correct device in front of it like a Ross Distortion unit

Im itching to see what I can get out of it with a tube overdrive

I tried a germ fuzz face ,but it didnt react quite right ,like a FF does with a clean tube amp ....ya know

I used to use one of those- pretty decent amp. Try a Boss Super overdrive or a Rat...
