    I just picked up this Master Lead 30 5010 for $25 from a local Facebook FS post. I'm not usually a solid state guy but I had a Lead 12 when I was much younger and loved it.

    Great find. Congrats, those amps sound really good at bedroom volume levels also.

    Just picked up another vintage Marshall, a 1976 50 watt JMP 2100 MK2 combo. I'll try to post some pictures soon.

    Had to edit my response. I just took the amp apart today and found that the amp is a Model 2100 and not a 2187, which makes it kind of rare.

    I recently gigged my 5210 and 5275, two 1x12 solid state combos, as a mini-stack. Skip the first half, a long intro for a reunion gig. I don't do anything special, basically just rhythm, but you can hear it, fwiw!

    My new Marshall, I guess that it is kind of rare. A 1976 JMP MK2 Model 2100 combo. A special order model, a 1987 and Super Bass circuit.
    This thing is in really nice condition.

    Yes, and it overdrives pretty fast with humbuckers.

    More pictures now up in Amp Central.

    I had become unhappy with my JCM2000 and decided to get something else. I was considering either a vintage Traynor YGM3 (very close to Marshall specs so easily modded and righteous amps in their own right) or a modern Reissue of the same amp (very well done - they even had the transformers and grill cloth made by the original suppliers).

    After selling my JCM I popped into the guitar store to talk to a friend who works there about the vintage vs. reissue debate I was having with myself. As we were chatting, I mentioned that it was a bummer that a $600 Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C 50 watter we had found in the chain a few months back had been scooped by a customer at the store which had the amp. On a whim I asked him to check their used inventory and he found one at a store out west for $599! He called the store, found out it was in mint condition, and while he was still on the phone I started tossing $100 bills at him.

    So it might take a week or more to get here from out west, but I have a Marshall 2266C on its way to me.

    Is the cab underneath a Laney? They used to have those mesh wire grilles.

    Can I borrow it? I need to remove some wallpaper from a couple of rooms and that sounds like a more enjoyable way to do it than the traditional method :lol:

    It was built by guy named Harvey Gerlitz.
    He did a bunch of Custom work for Matchless back in their Hayday.
    This one was made the same year as the Head for the original owner.

    Here is my new Vintage Modern 2266C (the grill cloth is not see through, it must be the camera's flash that caused it to appear that way in the photo):

    Congrats, I owned a 2266 head and matching 425b cab and also a 2266c combo. Great amps and I loved the LDR channel.

    Another NAD (last week)

    A Marshall Astoria Custom combo.

    Picked this up at a close out price.

    Got to jam using the Astoria last week with s drummer and bass player, one day after the purchase.

    Pretty happy with the amp so far.

    Update on the Astoria. I am really liking the Astoria Custom.

    Pretty much the perfect size and wattage amp for me. Good Marshall tones at controllable volumes.

    I actually jammed last week with this amp with no OD pedals in the mix. A very good thing.

    The KT66's in this amp sold me. My favorite amps have either KT66's or 6L6's running as power tubes.

    Mini Jubilee 2525 combo.

    Sold all my Mesas including Mk V 5:25 and bought this on a whim. 20 cathode biased EL34 watts into a Greenback. Awesome and plenty volume for small- medium venues. Crunch is a very usable addition and footswitchable Lead which I use as distortion.

    Very dynamic, touch sensitive.

    Got to try one of these. Seems like a great amp for Marshall tone.
