    I currently own what I believe to be a 1969/70 Marshall Plexi Super Tremolo 100 Watt Amp (Serial # ST/A 10096) which belonged to former Misfits guitarist Bobby Steele, and used at some Misfits live dates and recording sessions. I purchased Bobby’s entire collection including all his guitars, amps, memorabilia, etc. He mentioned that Marshall amp was modified at Dennis Electronics to use 7027 output tubes, and remodified at Tubesville to move the master volume to the front in 1990. I’m currently trying to sell this amp, and my question to forum members is - based on the history and former owner, would you this add any additional value if you were not a Misfits fan?

    Any thoughts on value as modified?

    it definitely wouldnt hurt. i think it would be worth more to somebody.

    edit* read the post wrong. do i think it would be worth more to a non misfits fan with the mods?

    no. i think an unmodded one would be worth more...but you might can find a misfits fan
    who would appreciate this way more. i know i do, but i dont have that kind of jack to afford
    what i think would be an appropriate price for it.

    I think the moddes hurt it a lot. No telling what is done on the inside. I personally don't know who the misfits are. But any famous tying you would need documentation for any hope of value increases.

    The serial number and plexi panel make me feel like its a 1968, my uncle had a super trem with a 104xx serial and it was definatly a 68, yours could be late 67 early 68. Please post gut shots of the board!

    Hmm....How much would you want for this? I think it's awesome, and on top of that, I am a Misfits fan, the mods interest me. Question though, is it like a V4 in that you can throw 6l6's in it in place of the 7027s no problem??

    You seriously need to work on your negotiating skills.

    BANISH HIM!!!!!!!









    For me I would consider the Misifits attachment (if it all can be verified) to negate the mod. So if the unmolested head was worth X, then the modified fan would be worth X-Y to a non-fan, but to a fan, it would be worth X -Y (for the mods) +Y for the Misfits connection, for a total of X.

    This is all ball park of course. If the mod was a butcher job then even a fan may not pay what an unmolested head would cost. OTOH, if it was an amazing mod, it is possible it could go for somewhat more than an unmolested price.

    Careful 7027 have a different pinout :cool: Yeah my 1970 Super Lead had 7027A when I got it, it was loud as hell and lots of headroom. I had it rewired back to EL34's :dude:
