Out of the ones I've had, a couple different Valve states, lead 12 combo and mini stack, the 3310 I have now wins big time, if it was my only amp I'd be fine. I really play it a lot, I don't feel bad about turning it on for five minutes at a time either.

5010 ,kickin ass for years . Put a Weber 65 in it , even better
Was last week's amp of choice / function ,actually







The 2199 is great with a good ol school overdrive in front of it (DOD 250)

Lead 20 ....any of the single channel 800 era amps really
Im not fond of the channel switcers ,although I have a 5210

Also love the Lead 12 Combo with an Eminence V1030 in there

Do you have a pic ?
Are the parks the same as a MG ?
I never owned one, but I wish I had. Way back in 1994 when I bought my first Heritage and I was trying them out the shop plugged me into one of these and in my mind I was saying "Seriously?" But it had a killer 70s rock kind of vibe- It was instant Thin LIzzy Live & Dangerous.

IDK the details on the circuitry, but I believe it was this one

Picked one up today, volume pot is scratchy but it works. Needs some attention. Speaker is better than I expected. It did indeed give the harmonic feedback.

yeah i know. but there he goes building stuff again.
or was that ahum.......fritzed up?
Just an 8" speaker upgrade..
And a matching custom 8" extension cab...
Oh, and the two-tone tolex / grill cloth thing.
Mostly scraps & left-overs, all in for under $50.
It's been Yinzered :coffee:

see.......im on to you bro.
this is what you do. take something that most people arent even looking at,
fitz it up, do something "extra", post the results, and now nobody can find the damn
stuff case there is a mass hord spree trying to get the goods. its sad fitz. you should almost
be ashamed of yourself. Almost.

The hidden gem in my little amp collection is the G215RCD (see post#3).
It's a Lead15 x 2 + chorus, stereo out.
There's 2 on GC today & 1 on reverb under $200.

I did a head conversion, but the 2x8 combo is kick ass vintage Marshall single channel tone. (100+ dB @ 1M, cranked)
Currently running mine to a pair of G12L-35's in 1x12 cabs :woot:
The secret is out, grab one wile you can....

(see Rick, I shamelessly share what I know...)

After I fixed the cord , I did another video of the amp. It’s a keeper to me. If not for this thread I might not have bought it last weekend.

Told ya. :D

Now all you need is for Johan Segeborn to get hold of one and post a "Can $50 Park SS amp sound like a Plexi?" video, and you've got yourself a collector's piece. The value will go up 10 fold.:woot:

Though I was mostly kidding, it's not without some hint of truth- Did you see what happened to the prices on Marshall Bass 12s after he posted his initial video years ago about them?
