ROCK!!!
Sounds like it should. :)
:eek:... let me just tuck this into my waist elastic. Now then...

RAWK!!!!

Seriously dude that is absolutely beastly sounding.
What do I think about it? I think I want it.

My bandmate's JCM800 runs 6550's, we estimate it puts out around 180W.
Awesome cool, I got deaf (er) just looking at it.
Thanks a ton Guys, I greatly appreciate the kind words and thank you for taking the time to watch my sound clip.

I was very surprised at the amount of gain....I expected a much cleaner tone with some grit but not all out distortion. Is that a result of the one wire mod, or just running it cranked with the MV down? Were you running an overdrive out front?
Yeah, It's all head plugged straight in. I'm not using any OD pedals, I don't even own any. :) The gain is the result of the OWM and PPIMV working together.

Thank you kindly Sir!!
Yes, I always have a few toys laying around. :)
A lot of people bring vintage Marshall's to me for my R/T mod so I usually have some beauty laying around.
The setup for this recording was my Ibanez Jem with Seymour Duncan SH-4 in the bridge plugged straight into my '68 Major Plexi and plugged into a JCM800 1960a cab with Celestion G12-M 25w Greenbacks. No pedals were used in front of the amp.

Like Keto I expected a very different sound, unlike Cups I didn't think it sounded like it should and I did think it sounds modded.
I can qualify this by saying I own a 69 Plexi which is not modded. I don't like boosts so I run mine through a inductive load break/reamper... Bad Cat Unleash.
What I did hear was a killer sounding modded 68 Major.
I'm interested to know more about the OWM and PPIMV mods... firstly what do the acronyms stand for? Secondly what do they do? I'm hearing more gain at lower volumes for sure but I'm also hearing a completely different gain structure and voicing that's "plexi" at heart but no doubt modded sounding. I can hear a few tweeks were made to the circuit and I'm interested to know what you did. I don't ever plan on modding mine but a plexi build is in my future. Am I right in saying the mods are "Friedman" inspired or maybe "Egnater" inspired.
What are you willing to share? Here or PM...
