6100 ‘92 Blue EL34 by FracStrat posted Feb 5, 2020 at 5:17 PM
Looks to be in pretty fine shape too
That is gonna be balls of fun!
Congratulations brother, looks to be a excellent piece.
Congratulations on the new amp !!!!
If your looking for the matching blue cab I recently seen one for sale on Music Go Round's website.
Think the UK G12T-75's were quite good in 92 compared with the ones we have today ,...sounded fuller IIRC .
Awesome! Is there "best year" for these?
Congrats! Great amp for sure! Many people love this amp. The 75T sounds very good with the LM/LE 6100.
Congrats @FracStrat, that’s a beauty!
Here’s the scoop on the versions ……
1992 marked 30 years in the amplifier business. To commemorate this milestone, Marshall released the 30th Anniversary series of amplifiers, the EL34 powered 6100LE with commemorative blue covering and brass faceplate, chassis and even valve covers. It was followed by the 6100 (in blue tolex and still EL34 powered) , ‘93 started the mixed run in Black ( EL34s then later switched to 5881s ) and then in ‘94 the 6100LM (in standard Marshall livery but now 5881 powered like the JCM900s of the time). All versions of the 6100 had three channels; clean, crunch and lead. The clean channel featured a mid shift, which gave the option of a more "Fender-like" voicing, and the crunch channel featured three modes recreating all the classic Marshall crunch tones of the past three decades. The lead channel featured a switchable gain boost and a mid-range contour switch, which gave it the tone and gain levels, which Marshall's engineers hoped would keep it competitive in the high-gain world in the early to mid-1990s. In fact some players felt the lead channel was perhaps the weaker link in the amplifier's arsenal, and it came in for the LM revision in late ‘94 (the LM standing for "Lead Mod"). This revision featured even higher gain.
I'm negotiating one like yours, tell me more about it! Does it really sound like a plexi or a 800???
Is there a matching tie / cuff-links for that?
The Crunch Channel does a Helluva Job producing that 800 tone …… Only had a few minutes messing with it through the G75T 1960 cab so far …… My God there is a lot of stuff this puppy can do !!
Congrats on new rig. Nice...
