    Does anyone know of a database that explains the differences between the earlier Marshall amps like the Plexis? and the various models of 800/900? I searched this board, but the only thread I found was like 14 years old and the links were dead. Looking around all I could really find were things like company histories, I'm trying to improve my Marshall knowledge, especially when it comes to the earlier amps from the late 60s/70s.
    Anyone know of anything? Thanks.

    800/900rds, and jvm's are hi gain amps having 1 or 2 additional preamp circuits.

    Beside that, my jvm sounds very close to my old 1959 super lead. 900rds are somewhat different, as the combine 800 a-like pre-amp circuit(1 additional pre-amp/hi-pass stage) with an additional silicium diode circuit for even more distortion. Later amps replacing this semiconductor circuit with a valve powered one for a 100% pure valve tone.
