Thought I better introduce myself here - I've dabbled in and out of this forum over the years, its been a great resource to go through. Apologies in advance for blabbering on about myself, but thats what this is for, right? I'm an audio engineer by trade, predominantly mixing records these days (but still doing occasional recording projects). Love all things gear/music, and of course growing up in Marshall there's a special attachment there. Still fairly early in my career but 2020 has been pretty crazy, having mixed my first UK Top 10 Album for Melanie C of the Spice Girls, an album for Fleur East as well as lots of major label projects. Here's a gear rundown: My favourite amp in the collection is my 79 JMP2203 (usually with Mullard ECC83's but currently with a Tung Sol in v1, a Soldano Hot Mod in v2, Sovtek LPS in V3. I also own a 1977 Super Bass which I'm currently turning into a Super Lead. Mostly stock late 70's spec, but with a couple of carry over's from a 68 spec. Bit of an ongoing project but its fun to learn from! Also love my 50w Vintage Modern, really underrated amp. Currently got Mullards in there, nails all those JTM/early Marshall type sounds. and my other Marshall amp is my DSL 100H. Covers such a wide range of Marshall sounds and does the high gain thing well. I bet if they cost more people would love them more? Always holds its own against the more expensive amps. Away from the Marshalls, I recently picked up a 2 Channel Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Rev G - its a kind of transition model with a Rev F style transformer/attached power lead/8-16 Ohm impedance options on it. It couldn't sound any more like what you imagine a Dual Rectifier sounds like. My Peavey 6505 was one of the first decent amplifiers I ever bought. Amazing amps, for what they do, nothing does it better. More recently I picked up an EVH 5150 100w which has been recently modded to the Stealth specs. a bit of a modern classic IMO. I have a Krank Revolution 1 - this one is the 2nd one I've ever owned. I sold my first one to pay for my JMP 2203. I have no regrets doing that, but I always missed the Krank a bit as they have a distinctive sound going on that no other amp can really do. Managed to find another one in great condition and very close in serial numbers to my 1st unit. They are both older units with the choke. and the last of the big boys is my Jet City JCA 100 - another amp I've owned two of. I originally bought a 20w model REALLY cheap - I enjoyed it, but I really don't like how EL84's start compressing and folding in on themselves. It just made me realise I love 100w amps. Loved the first 100w JCA I had but managed to sell it for a quick profit. Ended up finding a 2nd one cheap and bought that, this time modding it to an SLO preamp. A subtle change, but again a hell of an amp for the money and a lot of fun. Cab wise these are what I currently have: Mesa Boogie OS 2002 V30's Mesa Boogie OS 1999 V30's Marshall 1960TV (currently 2 1991 Greenbacks and 2 newer Creambacks, I have some greenbacks currently going spare) Orange PPC412 1999 V30's Marshall 70's 1960 but with 2003 K100's Marshall 1960B 2003 G12T75's There's currently a few others cabs here that are in my studio but not mine. Always things revolving in here.

Tons of pedals, and I've gotta say Im a huge fan of Kemper profilers, Neural DSP plugins and a ton of other stuff. I love needing out on amps but plugins and digital gear have their place too and its fun seeing that stuff advance. Thank you and look forward to contributing to the community here!
