    Bluesbreaker vs VM 2266C

    I do not have any personal experience. However, this from Steve Dawson, the designer of the VM. "The Vintage Modern is basically a JTM45 with some hot rodding. For a JTM 45 tone select the low dynamic range, master volume on full, mid boost out, Detail at 2 -4 o'clock. Body at 1 - 3 o'clock and...

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    Hi! No disruption at all. It's nice to see this thread again. Anyways, I wouldn't really compare this amp to a JC-120. And I think the JC-120 is probably a better amp for clean. For distortion, the 5100 is pretty darn good and does both drive and clean pretty well. The JC-120 would sound so buch...

    JCM800 2205 for $2k??

    Love mine! I'm a Schenker freak too, and I think the later models (IMO) sound best.

    Vintage Modern At Lower Levels Observations

    "The 50W Vintage Modern will put out around 36W(RMS) clean and 50W(RMS) when driven, just like the old JTM45s. Other 50W Marshalls put out 50W (RMS) clean then more when driven. The 100W VM put outs 77W (RMS) clean and 100W (RMS) when driven."

    What year for Marshall 5005 Lead 12?

    I have the third of four versions ('88)? If I'm not mistaken, I believe the most desirable one is the first version with no line out or headphone jacks. The drive has almost a fuzz-like character to it. It's the one that Billy Gibbons used on "My Head's In Mississippi." However, they are all...

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    Is there any way to tell if the boost channel/amp in general is running at full power? Can that be scoped? Just curious.

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    I finally got around to testing the effects loop. Tried it with an EH Reverb and a Deluxe Memory Man Nano. It works perfectly and sounds great!

    Just fell off my chair!

    Yeah, out of 60 watchers, there's got to be some serious potential buyers. It is a museum piece.

    Your DSL sounds better than mine

    I'm sorry....I'm not really clear as to what you are asking.

    How often do you turn your heads on?

    I don't think that weekly is necessary. Maybe 1-2 times a month at worse case, would be just fine.

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    Thanks. Unfortunately, you can’t blend the channels like can be done on the 3210 Lead 100 Mosfet head.

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    Tonight I really pushed it. Had the boost mode volume cranking at about 7 and the master at half way. Gain at 8. Yeah, there’s definitely some power there. Also great that there have been no issues at all since the cleaning of the pots. :)
