Post a link of the desired amp on the “Ebay Watch Post”, so we can help analyzing it. I’ll concentrate on “how they sound”, “how they look like” and also “how to tell them apart”. It was made as a head and as a combo (known as the “Bluesbreaker” combo).
In this article, I’ll try to cover the more “desirable” Marshall amps that were built since 1962 up to the JCM800 series, wich most consider to be the “last” great Marshalls produced (That until Marshall released the Vintage Modern series. I will also try to give examples of where they were used.. I hope you like it These are just a few of the thousands of codes that Marshall came up with for their amps. There were many cosmetic changes on the first years until it finally got the “Classic Marshall Look” by 1964.
Brothers & Sisters introduces Nora Walker (Sally Field) and her children; Sarah (Rachel Griffiths), Tommy (Balthazar Getty), Kitty (Calista Flockhart), Kevin (Matthew Rhys) and Justin (Dave Annable) each with their own lives and problems.
Husband and father William Walker (portrayed by Tom Skerritt) heads the family.
Various choices of glistening cleans, vintage crunches and modern high gain options can be mixed and matched with classic Marshall 100W or British Class A power stage for example, and then run through a choice of various 1x12, 2x12 or 4x12 simulations.
Add from a selection of 24 FX and you have all you need in one complete setup.
This is the reason why Marshalls of this early era (up to 1968) are known as “Plexis”.
The sound of this amplifier is “creamy” and “warm”. This amp is more suited for blues players, with a smoother sound.
(c) Manufacture date - The last character determines the date of manufacture.
How to read the serial number (1984-1992) In 1984, the order of the serial number components changed to (a)(c)(b), but the method used to determine the values for (a) and (c) remain the same.
This system was used until 1992, when a bar code system was introduced.
CODE has 14 MST preamps, 4 MST power amps and 8 MST speaker cabinets.
It has 24 FX including: Compressor, classic stompbox Distortions, Auto Wah, Pitch Shifter, Chorus, Phaser, Flanger and Tremolo.
It includes Delays with Tap Tempo, and studio quality Reverbs.
