    Looks like a head modification or version of the 427 modified 5E3 clone.

    I run it in front of the amp brother. It’s the only pedal I am using. Cheers Mitch

    [​IMG] This is how the sliders look, and because of the 2 outputs, you can run a dual mono rig, and that is how I run my dsl40c’s. Cheers Mitch

    So I guess if one was to put it on a pedal board it would make sense to have it the first in line right after the guitar? Any thoughts?

    That would be the way I was running it with the SD1. and for the most part I have been staying away from delay, and all other time based effects. Cheers Mitch

    Sorry to disagree and I know Fender amps as I used them for long time and that was never my finding .

    Do you have or use an actual 5F6-A?
    That is what they copied.

    I also would like to add in addition to the 62 Fender Super and my 72 Silverface Fender Twin and my 98 Fender Prosonic and 2011 Fender Supersonic , I have had my fill of Fender and if you love loud and clean that is the amp for you as I had to use overdrive/distortion pedals to get some dirt or hair and I don't miss for a second my Fender amps . The Marshall 2555X is a wonderful amp and I effortlessly switch between the clean sound and with a tap on the footswitch I go to the lead master for such a wonderful tone into the Vintage 30 speakers and it is music to my ears .

    I have a 72 JMP 50 watt P2P and recently got a 78 100 watt JMP Mk II Super ( PCB) Both Amps are 4 holers. Working on getting both amps to where I am happy sound and reliability wise. Once I get them sorted 100%, I will surely be in Marshall heaven.

    All my comment was, is that the origin scratches the itch, and sounds like a combination of both, not on there own but with some help in the way I am running it.

    I think your point about the Origin and JMP is clear enough, Mitchell. Close enough for horse shoes...............
    Not apples to apples/ oranges to apples, but certainly red delicious to gala if ya know what I mean

    I thought it was pretty straight forward, but on the net too many variables.

    While the Brown era does have the lower OT primary in that amplifier for the tasty OT harmonics it was part of the Brown movement with a newer deviated front end, lower signal and slightly colder bias.
    The Browns, Blacks and Silvers all moved to cleaner sounds.

    The Super was a different amplifier/design as compared to the Bassman, especially the 5F6-A Tweed Bassman.

    The Tweed Bassman, especially 5F6-A, got dirty and harmonic faster. That is why people wanted them. That is why the guys for Marshall copied it.

    Most amplifier models are different, of different class or designs. A lot of amplifiers of the same model are different over time, some much different. All amplifiers cannot be compared in one category.

    I definitely love the tones from my JTM45 RI with KT66 valves. Wonderful cleans and very sweet breakup when pushed :)

    KT66 are very nice. I will not run them in my Bassman however because of the extra heater current required. :(

    You are very knowledgeable and my compliments to you . I never had the opportunity to play a vintage Bassman , but I have heard and read all the history of how Jim Marshall patterned the first Marshall from Leo Fender's schematics for the 5F6-A circuitry Bassman and how the 4X12 speaker cabs were patterned after the 4X10 speaker configuration along with the 5F6-A circuit of the original Fender Tweed Bassman .
