Has Anyone Tried Power Scaling (Or MV'ing) Their Marshall

In trying to find some feasible ways of getting great marshall tones at home i started looking into various builders who base their circuits on marshalls but incorporate PS or MV's (e.g. Fargen, Reinhardt, Metro, etc.).

I am wondering though if anyone has taken a stock NMV marshall and installed either PS or MV and if you liked the results?

I guess I am thinking that perhaps there are benefits to incorporating these features from the design's inception, rather than 'slapping' it on a marshall after the fact??

That stuff works okay, but your never gonna get the marshall roar at home levels, even with a master voulme.

This doesnt answer your question i realize.

do a google search on VVR3. (Variable Voltage Regulation).
Especially, check out the threads on Ampgarage about it.
It's better than any attenuator I've ever tried, way cheaper than most attenuators too, but you need to know what you're doing.

My 1970 Super Tremolo had a master volume mod when I bought it in the mid 70s...and a fan...Horrors!

No complaints here.

I own two Marshall 1987's, one`74 and one`76 I have basic MV's installed on both. I also use a Soldano Hot Mod in V2 in them for gain because even with the master added, there's next to nothing for gain. They sound great to me, better than a 2204 master vol. model.
