    I guess I'm just not a Friedman guy, every one I've tried seemed to be all mids and kind of mushy. This new Studio Classic looks to have that bright, bold Marshall definition and bark. Looking forward to reading people's thoughts on them when they start getting delivered!

    If it doesn't sound good its going back, no harm no foul. You gotta buy from a store with a return policy. :agreed:

    Yeah, I know, I'm just lazy about packing stuff up and returning it, end up keeping too many things 'cause I ran past the 30-day window! LOL

    funny how the preamp side is simple (true to the original, well almost but close) and the power side is complicated (certainly because of the powerscaling)

    Thx for those.

    should be less Noisy than the originals : more wires shielded and pcb tracks shorter, preamp seems designed with that in mind (about sure the little changes are there for suppressing noise too), and it's a good thing (first JMPs/JCM800 were Noisy as hell)

    Not a big deal but i see they left out the choke whereas they kept it in the mini-jubilee (at first, will the studio version get rid of it too ?)

    Use the low sensitivity input with gain on 10 and gently roll-off your guitare volume (or not, depends on the pickups)… you can even add a germanium fuzzface gently rolled-off too and you're right in Hendrix territory...

    yup it is, you can even try a 6L6 in it if you feel it or be weird and put 1 EL34 and 1 6L6 (Don't know the resulting sound, though)

    important to put the gain on 10 on the low sensitivity output as the bright cap is then bypassed (it sounds good in the high sensitivity input, but crap in the low), if it's too gainy then roll-off guitare volume instead of the gain pot of the amp

    If it’s not perfect for me, back it goes,....45 day return policy. That to me means....‘try before you buy’

    Exactly. Try 45 days, before you buy.

    GC has a total of 4 SC heads in CA.

    One of them... Is mine. Should be here tomorrow. :cheers:

    If you live in Fountain Valley. Sorry.

    And so far no Canadian dealers at all. Erickson Music (Marshall distributor in Canada) must not have a shipment at all yet. Not even listed.

    Really? You sure about that? Put anything in it you want? I don't think so.

    Can’t wait to hear it through a 4x12 :dude:

    I’m guessing Marshall are going to need to make a lot of these.

    It's cathode bias like the Mini Jubilee. As far as I know, any octal tubes. I presume matching types. But 34s, 6L6, 5881, etc should all be fine.
