    Hi
    I've got a '73 2061 with a newer 2061cx cab.
    After some back and forth, I've decided to sell this little rig, but I can't figure out the what's the right price.
    Is it rare?

    I have only found the "new" 2061x for sale on ebay, and I'm not sure if I can compare the prices on those.

    Got any ideas on the value for this amp?

    Thanx :)

    They are Great Amps & Hard to Find. I think they were produced for Mail Order by Marshall back in the day.

    A friend scored one years ago off UK Ebay, it had 2 x 12" speakers and luckily for him someone had replaced the Cream backs with G12H pre Rola Greenbacks. They sound killer , look at any Paul Weller DVD and there is his baby front and center. He can afford anything yet it has been his go to amp for years for recording and live performance.

    We paid if memory serves me ? approx 600 pound landed to Australia from Manchester. A good buy. Todays value ? You don't see many on the market if you do they are the later mid '70s MV models. As yours has a replacement cab that will drop the price a little. Original Speakers ??

    The circuit offers up the JMP 50 Lead & Bass tones , a very versatile and lovely sounding combo. Just ask Paul !

    :cool: That's cool. Great amp.

    Dirk , click on the Paperclip you can see to the right of the smiley face above

    That will open a box ..... Click on Browse which will open up your computer photos file. Click on the pic desired and click Download. Might need to Edit and reduce the size if you photos are too large.
