    the Major has the fat bottles, the lead has the regular tubes.

    There's zero chance in hell I'd buy those for that price. I'd rather buy a genuine plexi stack from the 60's without the fake spray paint labels.

    I wonder what tubes were in these heads ?

    In the OP something is funny about the heads ~ they both have the same scuff marks. The bottom cabs back panels have the input jacks on the top and the stencil is normal ....interesting JHE cabs Woodstock ok.jpg

    Marshall Major has four KT-88's.
    Those Hendrix relics belong in a museum.

    Thats what I was thinking but wasn’t sure. I was thinking one is loaded with EL34s and the other has 6550’s for a slight tone difference...

    Looks like the one on the left has KT66, not KT88/6550.

    They are KT-66's. Jimi went thru so many amps he played what he had due to various reasons. He had to custom order stuff from Marshall & wait for it to get here via cargo ship. Plus he had amps in Europe, amps in U.S. and other places.
    By the time the money was rolling in for Hendrix he died.
    There is one of Hendrix's Marshall heads @ Graceland owned by Elvis.

    They are cool looking clones but not as accurate as they could/should be for that kinda money.

    They're repros that have been relic'd.

    yes, note the company logos - you don't affix company logos to museum pieces...

    I had never seen the logo's before but the Hendrix spray paint badging looked convicing. Anything for a buck i guess these days. Who can keep track ?

    That's insane, to me. Make a clone and relic and paint it up to look like Hendrix's. Ridiculous
