    Hello Everyone,
    I am going to buy second hand Marshall 1959 SLP Super Lead 100 MK II 1994 from a Japanese online store where they use 110 electricity Voltage in Japan. However our country use 220 voltage and there is a switch knob at the back of the Amp to change between 110 to 220 V vice versa. If after switching the knob to 220V side, I have scratching my head whether I can plug in with 220 V power supply.
    I would like to get advise from fellow members that is this particular Marshall Amp Head support both voltage input?
    Regards

    Yes, that's exactly what it's for. Set the selector to 220v, plug into 220v. Set the selector to 110v, plug into 110v.

    Couldn't be simpler.

    However, it would be a VERY good idea to have someone who knows Marshalls take a look at its internal circuits before powering it up. Just in case the voltage selector has been bypassed or modified.

    seen that happen before, I guess bypassing it removes the possibilty the selector gets nudged and you dont realise it, but its a pain when its not disclosed
