That's expensive for a greasy PA amp.

I paid 700 for an original Mark 3 PA 100 SC loaded with mullards and including 2 4x12 column speakers loaded with Fanes. They use the same transformers and chassis

They’ve been sitting for a while and they seem like a great deal. Which one would you get? Why do you want a PA head? I’m waiting for a cheap early sound city or Hiwatt head eventually

I'd get the 100 watt. Same power section as a DR103 and only minor differences in the preamp.

Would rather go the PA route because the price is <50% of the heads. More money leftover for Marshalls :)

Is it really? There's something about the lead dress of the Hiwatts that seems worth paying for. It's an amp I don't feel is worth cloning, with my meager talents.

Lead dress? It's pretty useless as a PA amp, so it needs redoing in any case. You pay for the name.

Haha, that’s what’s in the back of my mind when I don’t see the mids knob on them...

I’d get that one too and same thoughts, though I don’t know anything about the modding that’d need to be done to make it sound like one.
