Marshall 50 watt Combo

Postby Mayhawk on Thu Jul 25, 2013 3:43 pm

Another of those things I have wanted for years, decades maybe. Too pricey when I was younger, etc.

You know, it's hard to argue with....THIS IS THE BEST SOUNDING 50-WATT ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH! :o

Besides a good bath, any other things this amp needs? Or is hiding?

Wonder what this baby weighs.......... :yeah_right:

Yeah, that's way too high. You still see these sometimes for around $1200, in clean original condition. That eBay one is not original. The chassis is a '74 and the cabinet is probably a '79 (if you can go by the speaker dating). The cabinet is definitely later than the chassis (elephant-hide, small check grill, etc.). The overall condition of the amp is not even that great. Definitely not a good deal at that price. They are great amps, but seem to be somewhat undervalued compared to amp heads. Also, they are expensive as hell to ship.

Yeah, I thought it was a bit high myself, but I am no expert w/r to buying older Marshalls. Other than an old metalface, it's been reissues and clones for me.

Thanks, I was thinking this didn't look like earlier versions I had seen. :thumbsup:

I wonder why this guy would have not invested a bit of time in cleaning the amp. I'd be embarrassed to list it without at least a cursory wipe.

Mate bought a non master JMP 50 Lead & Bass with 2 x pre Rolas in it from a dealer in Manchester UK for 650 GBP
Great sounding amp ........ Paul Wellers Fav Marshall

That price is way too high.

I think the white piping instead of gold would make it a 76. the cabinet anyway. the only did that for a short while. speakers probably added later, but they are both reconed and thats a good thing :lol:
