Ebay UK Marshalls - all PAs!

Postby LD50 on Fri Apr 19, 2013 12:23 am

1) Black Flag PA:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190826989080?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_253wt_1164
says it's a '69 as per assembly tag but JTM front?
PT looks to be a new shiny stand up type, recovered in vox basketweave with corner protectors and extra holes in the back.
Odd that the listing says has tried to include as many pictures as possible, er three? That is the sort of thing that suggests a scam/lifted description?
See if he replies to my request for more pictures :wink:

2) Block end JTM45 PA
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190826861209?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_1125wt_8879
signed in gold pen on cab by Jim Marshall and again in black felt tip on the white plexi panel (bonus or blight?)
replaced lamp (drilled front panel?) replaced inout jack, neatly installed IEC, some minor wiring redone (preamp heaters, mixture of screen resistors and bias feed resistor presumably to get into bias range for EL34s?

3) 68 Plexi PA
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330908183626?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_1142wt_1164
Looks excellent to me, only a minor mod for hard wired mains replacing Bulgin is all I can see.
All bleeding stops.......eventually.

1969 PA100's often turn up with black flag panels. Marshall seem to have done a batch of these.

These commonly have below decks filter caps, tube retainers, and an odd serial no prefix of DP/A.

2. The headbox went missing whilst at Marshall ........ funny that :roll:

He had a Valuation for insurance from Marshall and the figure was "Staggering" ...... heard that many times.

68 PA in London sold for 1220 pounds.
If you consider what you can buy with this money, in my opinion is not very much.
You experts consider 1220 the right amount of money?
Cheers

Don't know if it's the "right" amount of money today, but to me it sounds like a very good deal for the money, great amp!

In fact I was speaking from a seller point of view, and 1220 sound to me quite low even for a PA, with flight case too.
I know that today if you want to sell something at the right price (if exists a right price) it's a pain, and if have some cash deals are right behind the corner.
