    Fated to pick this up as I found it a block from my guitar teacher, browsed Craigslist the minute the price was reduced to something ridiculous.

    I don’t know if we all still hate the TSL in 2019 - and I admit I haven’t really tried any of the ‘good’ Marshalls - but I’m liking this a lot so far.

    Needed a bit of work (well, I replaced a faulty preamp tube and flipped it from 8 ohm to 16 ohm to match the stock Wolverine speakers,) now have some questions on using the parallel loop etc. so figured I’d join up :)

    Thanks :D I’m north Orange County/Yorba Linda.

    This is my first Marshall and first ‘real’ amp (though my college band had collective ownership of a Fender Tonemaster with a Mesa cab.) Other than that I’ve used a PA/audio interface with a MacBook for the past few years, as well as a Silverface Champ and Vox AC4 to mess around on. Partly visible in the pic is my Fender Libra 4x12” solid state :)

    The TSL602 is rock solid. It was not plagued with the failures the stock TSL100/122 have.
    Turn it on eleven!:shred:

    My guitar teacher mentioned in the first post is a ‘Mark W’ - maybe a bit younger than late fifties though :)

    Mark is the bassist/ singer in this old clip!
    If he is the same Mark, please tell him that Mitch is trying to get a hold of him!
    Cheers

    Hello and welcome! SoCal res here, too (little east of Rancho Cucamonga).

    Congratulation on the TSL amp. The TSL are to me a great series and some really good ones are out there in the used market. Hope you are enjoying yours!
