    Anyone know if you can buy a faceplate for the DSL100 (H/HR depending if you have the C/CR)? It looks like they are exact opposites - aside from maybe needing to trim the length of the 100.

    Then you could flip the 40 chassis and put on the 100 faceplate. And maybe do something with the wattage on the label.

    Excellent idea, the 40c will also fit in the lead 100 mosfet head shell, but inverted.
    Cheers Mitch

    if you took in your original faceplate, & explain what it is you want done, any trophy/plaque/engraving shop should be able to make you a flipped plate, w/ the correct labeling...

    You did nice work - looks great. I’d have no problem doing that to mine, but thought if we could invert it, it would follow same orientation as other Marshall heads with the controls on the bottom.

    Just a thought

    yeah, then you can just have Sourmash make you a box.

    I'm a firm believer in keeping the original box, incase you want to sell it as original, you still have that option. Just wrap the cabinet in plastic/cellophane, box it up & store it in a dry place...

    or, you could use my photoshopped version, to illustrate the dial by time. I turned it to the 11 o'clock position... :)...

    That’s cool Dogs, but my old eyes would stare to long at it.

    I made that because someone was ranting about people using the clock system for telling you their settings...

    The 900 series had 1-20 on their pre-amp, & there's always the Spinal Tap joke (11). So, on the 900, 10 would be at the 12 o'clock position, not 4 o' clock, or cranked up all the way. Dimed doesn't have the same meaning when the amp goes to 20...

    The problem comes though, when someone uses the clock, but just says "3", as most would take that as 3 on the dial, not o' clock...

    so, that was my joke response...

    I got it bro and was just trying to extend it, I always try and say by the dial.
