    Congrats OP.

    I just sold my Master Lead Combo (model 5010), 30 watts and with a stock Celestion G12M70. This SS amp could have easily hung with a band. Put a Reverb and OD pedal in front of it and your set.

    The amp sounded big and can definitely get close to some JCM800 tones. Good amps. I only sold my amp because I’m downsizing my amp collection.

    Can anyone tell me anything about the Mosfet 100 Reverb Twin? I think it is a 5213 for sale around here at the moment.

    What could I expect from this amp? There is one for sale for $300 (about $200 US money)

    Just picked up the silver jubilee micro stack, my first lead 12. Now have the bug to collect the other colors, I have an offer on a white stack but the pots are scratchy and seller wants $400. Thoughts? image.jpeg

    Pots should clean with deoxit..$400 isn't bad if its in good shape. I stole mine, $300 for the white stack, $250 for the black stack. I'd buy a silver or red one for $400, even if it had scratchy pots.

    Thanks Gunner, will probably grab it. Tolex and cloth in great shape, I'm just not very technical and didn't want to put more $$$ into it to have it serviced. Looking at the plexi green version also, need to make room for these guys!

    Guys are pretty proud of the plexi versions. I have seen them asking over $800 for the head and appropriate cabs.

    Back in the late 90's I started collecting those and had every color except for the "plexi" version. Those are really hard to find. The Jubilee sounded the best, just kidding :)
    I have always thought that Marshall should have done those with 12" speakers instead of the 10". Those amps actually sound pretty good and much better, like any Marshall, through a 4x12.

    I've had a couple of the Lead 12 combos over the years. One cool thing about them is there is enough room in the cab for a 12" speaker. The last one went out the door a long, long time ago, back when they were cheap. Would love to have a 20 or 30 with reverb.

    Ive had a 100 watt MOSFET head laying around here for years. Acquired it in a trade. With a delay in the loop, it sounds ok. There's a youtube video I saw, for a mod I did to it to stop the loud pop at power down.
