    Question regarding unusual placement of Jose MV

    I've been looking into rebuilding a 5w amp I have lying around. It will use one 12AX7 in the preamp, and I will set both up as plate driven gainstages. Normally the Jose MV is placed after a cathode follower, and my knowledge on clipping diodes is somewhat limited. Will there be any...

    New amp day, finally got a JVM410H after several years of drooling !

    As the title says, I finally got myself a JVM 410H, and it's absolutely astonishing. Have been drooling over this amp for years, and always wanted to get it, but never find one local or at a price I could pay. But yesterday, i finally got one, for around 1100$. From 2010, and in absolute mint...

    Refinish project: Jackson Kelly

    As said earlier, I was gonna refinish my Jackson, and it's finally being done :) We've been working on the guitar since yesterday, but unfortunately I've lost all the pictures from the sanding, priming, ..., until as it is now. More pics to come when we start on clearcoat and polishing. But...

    Tried the JCM1 yesterday - my oppinion

    To start out with my conclusion, it sounded like balls, didnt like it at all. I expected great tube tone at low volume, but what it gave me was buckets of fizz. Ive heard ss amps that sounded better, seriously. And the price? Wtf. I bought a DSL 401 for a third of the price some time ago, and it...

    Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 401 modding

    As promised, I made a thread where I'm modding my DSL 401 that I bought recently. Still haven't gone mod crazy with it yet, just did some basic stuff: tightened the lows a bit, removed some of the harsh treble, and made the difference between OD1 and OD2 smaller (OD1 more gain). Check all the...

    NAD - got a DSL401!

    Got this 2001 combo for 300$ in mint condition :) It actually sounds much better than expected, especially when plugging into a 4x12. Maybe a speaker swap in future. Anyways, Im gonna perform a few mods to it, a bit more classic voicing, and also tighten the lows, so it sounds more like my main...

    Marshall DSL 401

    I found this pretty local, seller will drop it off at my place for around 300$. Is it go or no go? I'm very happy with my Marshall stack, not looking for a new main amp, but it would be cool with a "small" combo. So, is 300$ a steal, and is it a good buy? Or should i keep my money

    A little thing I'm wondering about EQ sections

    Why is it that some people often says that "X amp is responding much more to the EQ than Y" and such, when like 90% of all the Marshall have the same values in the EQ section. Like, why is many people EQing a DSL or a JVM much different from 2203s and 1959s when it's the same EQ values? In my...

    New cab day - Greenback time!

    Got this new cab today (the bottom one), which is a 1960B but with G12M Greenbacks in it. Next time i go to the rehearsal room I'll do 3 different speaker setups (V30/T75; V30/Greenback; Greenback/T75) and decide which to use in future. Only have my 5w amp at home at the moment, but i can still...

    Modded SL-X clips, before and after

    So i got this SL-X a half year ago, and have modded it alot by now. Apart from getting EL34 instead of 5881s, it has several circuit changes, and the V1 is run in parallel like in a Plexi. I'm not done modding it yet, I've heard things after I recorded it that I don't notice when just playing...

    Tried a YJM today!

    I've been dying to try this amp, as I've never had the chance to play a 4-holer where I could get the preamp volume knobs up at all! Tried it beside the AFD also, both are nice sounding amps, both doing separate things, but the sensation was bigger with the YJM. It's a shame it's so expensive...

    JCM 900 SL-X mod idea - parallel input, please help

    Hi guys, First, I have a question that's been puzzling me for quite some time. The second triode of the V1 in a SL-X is a cathode follower. Why? I've never seen that before on any Marshall, having a cathode follower before the gain knob and rest of preamp. It shouldn't really change the sound...
