    It's a 1978 Marshall JMP 50 watt Super Lead, that's modded out the wazoo.

    I got it from Tribb. He had two of them, so I bought one.

    Holy crap does this thing ever sound great. It has 2 channals, so you can get everything from clean to Plexi, to Mrk II, to JCM 800, to tear your head clean off tones. It has a variable effects loop, active resonance control, and a 1/2 power mode. It actually has 2 gain stages, totally wild.

    I'll let Tribb spill the particular tech stuff if he wants to, cause I'd just screw it up! hehe

    It's the coolest amp ever, thanks Tribb [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I'll upload some pics later [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'm glad you like it bud. It'll still take some experimentation to get "your sound", but the amp's a good start.
    I've already mentioned all the stuff the amp has in the past on here, but you're the first one who's ever heard it for himself.
    It's the way it sounds more than what it does I think, but it does it well.
    I've honestly never heard a modded marshall that sounds like these heads. It's good to have it go to a friend.
    Glad you like it.

    Hi guys. Normally I wouldn't bother with this, but after homeunit's post yesterday I've recieved 4 emails so far, asking me what the mods are, how they work, what kind of heads, the cost, etc.
    It's easier just to explain here that the modded heads are no longer available. There were a very limited no. of them done(5-6 per year) to older 70's heads only, and the tech. has decided not to do any more for at least a year or more. Thanks for your interest.

    hehe, sorry bud, didn't mean to filter inquiries your way.

    The only thing I'd add is that these modded heads were done in such a way that the tubes and output transforfer is NOT getting beaten to shit. Most modded heads I've come across have been beefed up with an extra tube or two and that's about it. These mods sound good, but they greatly reduce the life of you tubes and transformer, so if you guys come across a modded head, make sure to check that it done right.
