I did a search of the forum and couldn't find a thread where owners of the 1 watt Marshall amps can discuss their cute little tone monsters and get the best from them. There are threads on the best speakers to use, settings, re-amping them, best tubes to use etc., etc. I just though it would be good to have a place where people can post and reference info without having to search lots of threads for an answer. No doubt a lot of the subjects will have already been discussed in other threads, but don't let that stop you, post up whatever. Of course we all like to see photos of the rigs people use their amps with so post 'em up boys (and girls?). I'll get the ball rolling with the single most important tone improvement you can make to a JTM/JCM1 (with the push-pull output ECC82). Put a good, but unbalanced, ECC82 in there. I've actually put a vintage Mullard in my JCM1 today that is so unbalanced it failed on my Orange tube tester....It scored a 14/8. It will fail if the triodes are more than 5 points apart. This, however is still a very strong tube, just unbalanced, which is exactly what you are after. The extra harmonic content in the tone is staggering. I thought the Valvo I swapped out was good, but this Mullard is amazing. I had to just stand there and play for an hour or so.
