    Congrats @T.J.! Nothing better than a NAD,...except maybe a NGD!

    Actually mine bubbled and also started to have paint chips under the bubbled area , i have contacted Marshall to replace them under warranty , i have sent clear pictures of the damage , their replay was that i need to send the AMP to them that they will evaluate the damage and then they will decide if they will replace it on top of that the shipment of the AMP to their premises should be covered by me and in case that they will define that this damage can be claimed under warranty then they will absorb the cost .
    in order to avoid the shipment i have asked them kindly to send me a replacement part but they have refused to that as well .

    as a Marshall supporter/user ( i have 2 amp heads , 1 cabinet , 1 combo amp , BT speker and BT headphones ) it was a very disappointing experience for me, from their customer service and form the quality of the build/materials specially after i have purchased a premium product from them .

    i have contacted a faceplate manufacture to make authentic Plexi faceplates ( 1.5mm rear engraved ) , once that its done i will post my experience with Marshall on their FB page .

    Hey, I have been using an attenuator with my SV20h since the first time I used it. Last night played it straight out (no attenuation). Divine. This is the best tone I’ve have gotten since 1979. Long live the SDV20h!

    Yeh I like to play mine with no attenuator but right now my ears are ringing. Been playing Bits if All right now and Black magic woman. No pedals at all just my LP. It is such a lovely sound.

    A slight angle change on the pick and I get a different sound. I love it.

    On the downside my Tolex started pealing off. Called Marshall and they told me how to repair. It was easy so I did it.

    Ok this is a little disconcerting, you got a tolex thing, and @Freddy78 has a faceplate issue with "bubbling" and "paint chips"! Also there have been others with faceplate issues, and Freddy78 got a very poor response from Marshall!

    Not good, I'm watching this closely.

    I don´t have the Tolex problem, but I like you to share the information Marshall gave you so we know what to do if we got the same problem as you got.

    Thanks in advance
    Cheers :cheers:

    Dang, after all this bubbled front panel talk I took a closer look at mine and realized mine has the same issue. How “easy” are we talking when replacing the front panel? It honestly doesn’t look that bad and is barely noticeable, but if it gets worse I will probably replace mine as well.

    Heat the Tolex with a hair drier and push back in place.

    Or send back under guarantee.

    The VM 2266 is the amp i will use live. It covers all my amps. yesterday for the first time. got TS out& boosted , my gosh, i could get brootz(not my thing) then i stacked on top 1960 bv with first version gt75/Marshall vintage in X pattern. There it was,,,all of everything...all in 1 full stack...
    do cover a lot of music ground & it did clean jazz, death metal.rock, blues. I love the thing dimed & riding guitar knobs. Its as dynamic as my 4 holers. the 425 cab with g12c are very good at clean & crunch. I bounce between F & M a lot writing songs, this covers it. At about 36 ish watts coming out, it hits just right. KT66 just might be my tube style..it really is ..if i could meld all my amps into 1..it does em..it does dynamics & it can crush boosted

    Thanks for the info. The 2266 might be my next head within the next year. I have the 425A (G12C), but wanting an amp again that has good cleans. Already have the SV20H and love it.
