got to agree on the 1959s
You forgot to say,… ‘In my opinion’, Brain!I have to insist it is the legendary 1959 circuit.
Now my favorite Marshall tones come from JTM45s and JTM45/100s but THE Marshall amp was perfected with the 1959. It was the next step and when Marshall became more "original" or "fine tuned" rather than a interpretation of the Fender Bassman like the JTM amps.
I think the 2203/4 was a great step forward in usability and modernization in it's day but Marshall was already VERY established by this point. The 1959 is what cemented Marshall as THE rock amplifier and when I think Marshall I think 4 holes.
