      the amp belonged to a rich family who's son died in the 70's. the mom left his room untouched. the amp was left there until the parents died, the house was sold and now torn down.
      i'm pretty sure it hasn't been converted to superlead, the son played bass (i would get a boss octave oc-2 (strange again, since the octave oc-2 is from 1984) and a ehx clone theory, the one with the cable attatched to the unit for free). but maybe i'm blinded by the otherwise good looks of this amp.
      i see that the bolts are missing, which is strange, as every information i have points to the amp being left untouched since the 70's. not all solder points have dye on it and some look a bit odd, but maybe that's normal even for the freshest marshalls from the factory then? the tubes are philipps el34.
      do you think it's dangerous to turn the amp on without changing the filter caps first?
      thanks for your help!

      @Edwin Star Your new amp should be brought up on a variac with a current limiter. Just flipping it on the normal way runs a HIGH risk of serious damage.
