That's the perfect sized amp. Not too small and light enough to be moved around quite easily.
Very cool amp & cab + killer speakers, too.
You can order replacement Marshall knobs, too, if the others don’t pan out. I did this for a JCM800 combo I had a while ago. The original ones had all cracked and split.
I keep saying this haha. That is a great deal, basically got a free 212.The 100w is only 3db louder than the 50 watt. It's fine^)@#
I knew I saw it somewhere. Makes sense if you know the significance of a 3db jumpI keep saying this haha. That is a great deal, basically got a free 212.
Yea...i haven't seen the amp itself listed below 1500 on kijiji..nice score!I keep saying this haha. That is a great deal, basically got a free 212.
Sounds like he sourced some, but if you need more or someone else does this is the cheapest I've seen:It does need new knobs, and he has replacements, but he forgot to bring them today. No big deal, I can get them later and put them on then.
Congrats on the nice score!
As usual, things are a bit more complicated when talking about wattage and loudness. 3db can be a lot louder if the speakers are also more efficient (Creambacks are 100 db @ 1watt @ whatever distance Celestion uses and the stock Greenbacks in the Vint Modern are 98db... but a 4x12 vs this 2x12 might be enough to compensate for that; sealed vs open back like the combo version can also make a diff)... and if you also end up turning it up more than with a 50 watter to get the same amount of PT distortion....

US$0.56 ea but the shipping takes a while (the shipping ain't much though, like a buck or 2)
Don't get worried when it's been almost a month and they're not here yet. That's what you get for that price (and there won't be any tax or duty).I am in the middle of placing an order for knobs through the company linked above. Their minimum order is $5 (before shipping) so I had to order ten knobs when I only needed six. Looks like I'll have some freebies to offer up here when they arrive.

... you coulda just grabbed a few other things - chicken heads; someone always needs chicken heads ;P
Somewhat unfortunate but I just saw your post... I have 7 Marshall knobs I kept from my a JCM900 I used to own in the 90's. I have no use for those knobs and they've been sitting there unused for over 20 years now. I'd be glad to give them to someone who needs them... They definitely have the "aged" look... The top looks more silver than gold for some reason... Let me know if you want them and I'll ship them over to you.They sent me shipping information yesterday, so it seems that they have shipped the package and the rest is up to the postal service. So that probably means I will receive it six months from next Tuesday.
