    how much are they selling for?

    is there a difference between the 2204 head? does it have an extra "tone shaping cap?"

    other than being upside down..lol


    83 marshall 4010 combo with vertical inputs in question.

    It's identical to the 2204 head. I have a 4010 with horizontal inputs that sounds great. Got mine for $550 or so a few years back. Don't know what they go for now. The horizontal ones are not as desirable even though they didn't change the circuit on the 50 watters(just the 100 watters).

    I saw one listed on Ebay for $750, I think.

    Great, great amps, and until recently one of the best buys out there - I got mine for $250 about 10 years ago.

    If I could only keep one amp, it would be that one.

    I had a tech tell me to steer clear of the combos when I was looking for an 800 a while back. Said they had lots of reliability issues.

    Not warranted? :confused:

    Never had a lick of trouble with mine.

    It's exactly the same as a JCM head.

    The tech may have been thinking of the 4210 channel switcher with its well discussed issues of channel bleed and FX loop jacks wreaking havoc-though if you find a good one they can sound very good too. ut I agree with the previous poster-4010's don't have reputation for problems.

    I love mine. I have an 85 4010 that sits next to my 2203. It's crazy that they have a reputation for being a one trick pony. I think they prove that an amp doesn't have to have 20 knobs and 5 channels to be versatile. All you have to do is set the eq, and adjust your volume to achieve as little or as much distortion you want.

    I think the current price is $800ish, and maybe a little less than the heads when in the same condition.

    Depends on year and condition. I sold an '84 model last year with G12-65 speaker and road case for over $1100.

    Killer amp! I had one back in the day, but you better have a strong back!
    They seem to go around $700-$850
