Lovely old example in orange tolex :thumbsup: Would go well with my old Voice of the World - Orange Cab.
Looks like a changed EL-34 Tube Socket also.

Any sound samples or You Tube Video ? :D

I normally do a little demo when selling amps but I have a broken wrist and can't with this one. All I can say is that whoever buys it wont be disappointed, I've been through an awful lot of Marshalls and I know what a good one sounds like :)

Very ice piece of kit that looks well looked after.

One of the 67s with a -133 high voltage PT so probably quite loud?

Not a Park expert at all so probably a daft question but, which models had KT88s?

Wonder if the levant would clash with my Orange 2x12 :yeah_right:

The Park 75.

That is a cool amp! Please someone hurry and pick it up before I do something I will probably regret!

NedB - You would not regret it! :jam:

LD50 - Yes, it's loud and has more punch and clarity than a normal 50 watter.

Strat50 - OK, I searched my PC and found this. Disclaimer! This is just me messing around with a few new riffs. I find listening back to myself helps improve my playing and the riffs. This was never meant for public consumption, you've got camera distortion (especially when I turn it up), bad playing, mistakes and the rest! Oh and I was running a delay infront of the amp.

It's just what you would expect, a lead model JTM50 with fantastic articulation and big balls if you ask it :)

Great amp boola! :cheers:

The video seems to be set as private so we (I) can't see it.

The Park 75.


Yes I know that bit but what distinguishes a Park 75 from a Park 50 other than a pair of KT88s - as this one has no labels or badges, does a Park 75 have a special panel or badge?

I was thinking this might be a 75, but you are correct about there being no real difference. I would like to own this head and learn more but when I see someone like this guy with 803 feedback bidding 30 times to always be high bidder early in the auction kind of makes me not want to participate.

As far as I can tell, it was not until late 1969-1970 that the Park75 showed up. On one of my hard drives I have the 1968 Park catalogue inserts & they refer to the amps as 50 watts. It was in 1970 that the back panel of the Parks got the "Park 75" labeling. Some are plexi panels, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Park was using plexi panels into 1970. I do have a 100% unmolested Park50 from early 1969 & it has the original Mullard EL34s in it.

That is very interesting. A while back I did have a plexi panel 75 that was dated December of 1969.

I had an offset handle Park 150 with a 1969 dated inspection tag. The front panel was metal and the back panel was black plexiglass.

You guys got me wondering if I should've been running KT88s in this thing! I think though (I am not as knowledgeable as you lot) there were JTM50s which ran the same transformer config as this amp so I think EL34s are the correct valves for it.

I'm not an expert!. Humbucking and Ned are safer opinions on these. AFAIK the OT is the same for both output valve types (Drake 784-139) the PT is the higher voltage alternative to the more normal 1202-118 seen on Marshalls in late '67.

I just did not know when the first plexi 75s were produced (after all Marshall were buying KT88s in for the first PIG Majors.
