    Hand built JCM800 2204. Loud and never saw a clean sound it liked. Works best with green backs. Killer overdrive! The cabinet didn't come out quite as good as I hoped it would but it's ok.

    I picked up a 50th Anniversary JMP1h a few months ago and am amazed at how it just nails 70s JMP tones which are my faves.nibhad a 1962 Bluesbreaker did all the Beano mods..,and then just didn't like the OD. Great cleans...really great......but it wasn't Marshall to me. 1970s JMP is Marshall to me and now I got it in spades in this lil guy. Records wonderfully and with. Bad cat Unleash I can gig it. What is not to like?

    Finally got a "real" Marshall! It's a 1987x.

    Congrats on that 1987x.
    I have a handwired 1987 clone. That is THE SOUND man...a good attenuator is key!

    I finally got the first chance to jam with my Marshall 1974x over the Easter weekend. I was pretty impressed with it.

    I used a couple of OD pedals with the amp, but with the amp cranked up to 8-10 on the volume, no OD pedals are required.

    Good natural overdrive and the amp easily kept up with the drums, but the 1974x was not super loud, even with the volume maxed.

    Good looking Marshalls. I really like your 4010 combo. I would like to find a vertical input amp like yours (I used to have a 1983 4104, the 2x12 version with G12-65's)

    I forgot that my prior pics were before I got replacement knobs for one of my combos. Here are the two with all the knobs on.

    Hi Brian, does your Lead 20 have a 12" speaker in it?

    Also, what model amp on the bottom of the stack.

    Thanks,
    Grid

    The Marshall Model 5002 "Lead 20" has a 10" Celestion G10L-35 8 ohm speaker. The bottom amp is its bigger brother the Marshall 5210, which has a 12" speaker and 50W. Both are early '80's solid states, but sound surprisingly good dimed. I picked them up separately on local craigslist for very little dosh, although I would note that I live in a college town that is frequently a buyer's market for gear due to the high muso-to-normal ratio. ;)

    Thanks Brian, I owned a Lead 12 and it sounded really good as a practice amp, gave it to my brother and he still owns it. Always wanted to pick up one of these amps with a 12" speaker.

    Very familiar with G-vile, my kids are all Gators.

    Nice amps.
    Thanks.
