    I've got a recent 4-holer that I'd like to have modded to something similar to the Cameron Aldrich mod. I realize he has his own amps now and I'm really set on modding this particular amp. I'm looking for an extra gain stage and a tube-buffered FX loop as well. Anybody have any ideas on who can do this?

    +1 for JerryP and Trace, both do excellent work and will work with you to get the tones you are after.

    People or Companies?

    Bogner will still mod your Marshall, I think.

    I have tried Bray and Voodoo and they both do great custom work. Both highly recommended.

    Not an old one I take it? You're throwing your money away. You can't get squat for a modded amp.

    Many a fine and vintage Marshall were drilled during the 80's but most pro amp techs these days can do non-intrusive mods.

    How about enjoyment? I don't think anyone is suggesting he muck up a vintage piece, but I've sold modded Marshall RIs and clean original Marshall RIs and I can tell you right now the modded ones brought alot more.

    John Suhr did my 1970 100 watt. It was not a museum piece (holes drilled in the chassis and the OT was bad), so what the heck. It sounds great nd that's what matters and in my opinion, it's worth more now than before he tweeked it.
