    I just bought this old beauty and thought you all would like to see it. It's a 1969 Tremolo 50 4x10 combo with the original cover. It's completely original except for the bias caps, which I just changed. The 7442 speakers are working perfectly and sound amazing.

    Way cool.

    Are these as rare as I think they are?

    Don't ever remember seeing one, or even reading about them?

    I don't know if the 4x10" version is rarer than the 2x12" which looks the same, except on the back of course:

    By the way, you have embedded the same pictures several times, it seems. ;)

    This combo is dated January 26, 1969 (I believe) on inspection sticker. These models were the 1st brushed aluminum chassis Marshall produced. The English date system is Day/Month/Year. I have a JMP 100 SL dated January 25, 1969 (dated the day before!)..

    My guess rather is November 26th, 1969, as the sticker seems to show an 11 for the month, not a 1:

    test date 26-11-69.gif

    That would also explain the non-plexi front and back, as the switch to metal happened sometime around June, I think. See my 2x12 plexi combo from March 1969.

    I also wondered about the three switches on the front panel, is the third one for tremolo on/off? I cannot make out what it says on the photo:

    I have never seen a 4X10 of this amp, thanks for posting the pictures it's a really cool amp.
    There was a customer who had a 2X12 of this combo and he sold it for $325. I think his wife was complaining about the noise.
    I was so pissed that he didn't ask me if I wanted to buy it.
