    Hmmm, you could be right. It's been a while since I checked out the back. I did it, and I'm glad I did - though I WILL say you'd better sell two: you're going to need an Ox Box too! It's LOUD, REALLY LOUD. I mean, you know "It's 100W, it's going to be loud". Then you hear it and realize...

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    Ah, cool, I dig it. I guess I needed to look at it as a European store. "Most" sites in the US are purely English language, and have a certain look. I've found that many sites that are European have been designed to be multilingual, and feel different. This definitely falls into that...

    Is that a real store? I don't mean to be harsh, but it looks like a fake site.

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    Yeah, mine was trashed. Funny thing though - the 1959 was in almost perfect shape! I can't tell where you are, is it US? I don't believe I paid customs tax, or if I did it was wrapped up in my checkout price. Yup, it seems the male end of the plug cord (the one attached to the amp) is...

    I did buy from Thomann, but it was a 1959 HW and in November...

    LOL, that's true! Though then we'll be complaining that the shipments of substrate and printing materials get lost and damaged! :D

    Yeah, I hear you, and don't disagree. It's just sad that we're being trained to accept such [email protected] service and expected to pay full price for it.

    Not saying that's not a great idea, but it does say something pretty pathetic with how packages are being handled lately...

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    Ok, I can't stop going back to the Thomann page - they've created an addict!! The problem is that I already have a 1987X, and none of the others in the Marshall line come with voltage switches. I know this has been asked a lot, but I can't get a real read on the answer: Is it possible to buy...

    I hear you, but I will say they made it right without much trouble at all. For me, I ended up with a slightly dinged amp (really have to look for it to find it), and a great store credit. I'll take that deal any day!

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    Ok, ready for this?? I wasn't... Swapped the fuses, changed the voltage, got a new cord... I turned it on, and left it in standby for a few minutes, just WAITING for the smell of burning plastic or smoke. Nothing. I finally plugged in (wirelessly), flicked it off standby, and threw a chord...

    Well, 240V vs 110V isn't the service available to the house, it's the standard amount available on a circuit. My house as 3x 200A panels (600 total), but each breaker is 110V. Some specific breakers (clothes dryers, refrigerator, etc) are set up with 220V, but the majority are 110V because...

    You and I both. Unfortunately, the fuses that I could find local are not a match for the ones the amp needs. US fuses are larger (1.25") than the ones that came in the EU amp (3/4"). I had to get the closest I could find, and they won't be here until Thursday. My brain keeps trying to tell...

    The power cord isn't that big of a concern. I do need to get one, but I have several other high wattage heads that use the same plug type. I can pick up a fuse locally today, and be patient for a Marshall OEM cord to "to keep".

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    I just chatted with Thomann, who was every bit as helpful as everyone here suggested. They had me send a bunch of pics, then open and send pics of the amp: It was in surprisingly better condition than I would have expected: Some scuffs in the tolex, and a couple of dinged corners, but I...

    Nope, even though I WFH, I didn't know it was here until I got the "Your Package has been Delivered" email.

    Marshall prices US vs. Europe

    Ridiculous, right? I've heard only good things about Thomann, but I'm still not bold enough to open the box w/o talking to them first. I don't want *any* room for the thought that I'm in any way responsible. I'm going to IM Thomann in the morning, and see what they tell me to do. At this...

    I was, now I'm dying a bit inside. Here's the "best" picture: This is the rest of the view: No joking around here, that's how it showed up. It was actually leaning upright against my garage door. I brought it in (rattling all the way), and just took a bunch of pics. I tried to...

    Yeah, I dig it. I just meant that many consumer items are currently delayed coming to the States, because of the huge mess that is the CA ports.

    Yeah, everything is insane lately. Stupid shipping containers! BTW, UPS says my Thomann amp should be delivered today!
