    Thanks, man! :BEER
    There's a lot of hate for these channel switchers' tone, so I figured I'd show you guys that you can polish a turd. :D

    Thank you, sir! Next time somebody on this forum says the 2205 and 2210 can't keep up with the 2203 and 2204 show 'em that clip. I think mine keeps up fine. :D

    Many regard the JCM 800 as being the best amp Marshall has ever made. Sounds great!

    Thank you guys very much! I've just had a lot of people ask me about that Frankenstein amp of mine, so I figured a recent clip would do some justice. I freaking love that Falcon!

    Sounds great Frankie.

    Good old Bourbon Street. We played there last year and it was a blast. The head sound guy is a trip isn't he, hehe? :)

    Man, I love that guy! He's a Marshall head from way back too, so he always gets a kick out of us when we drag the stacks in. It's a shame that place is in the middle of nowhere, otherwise it'd be a smoking venue.

    I own an '82 JCM800 2204. Last year I had a chance to compare an '87 2205 directly to my 2204 for a couple of days. I thought the 2205 was a great amp! In the end I gave the edge to the 2204, but only slightly. Really had to go back and forth and pay attention to hear the difference. Voicing was almost spot-on, only real difference was in the dynamics and touch. The 2204 was just a little more open. I think that's to be expected going from one to two channels though. I'd be proud to add a 2205 to the stable. Great amps! :AOK
