  Marshall 1967 JTM50 "Black Flag" Head In Original White Tolex Cab
(Item#253)(consignment)(LAYAWAY) VERY rare 1967 JTM50 "Black Flag" head in original white tolex cab and non-original white logo, transition amp between the JTM45 and JMP plexi heads, the first amp to use EL34 power tubes but still has a tube rectifier. I owned this amp about 12 years ago and sold it. The customer later sent it back to me to buy back and the amp was poorly packed so the bottom left corner of the cab cracked and the tolex ripped. I had a local repair guy glue and clamp the crack in the plywood, and then glue the tolex back down(see pictures). The amp also had a solid state rectifier for a while but has been restored back to original with the tube rectifier. The circuit is mostly all original with a replaced filter cap on the board and a small bias pot added. Amp is in great working condition. Please call for more details. Amp will ship in a road case that will have to be returned to me.

  Marshall 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead (The Holy Grail EVH Head!!)
(Item#115) 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead head, the "Holy Grail" of 100w heads!! Probably most known for being the Eddie Van Halen amp. This head has been in my personal collection for the last 13 years. The amp was completely gone thru by Victor Mason at The Plexi Palace and then originally sold to Matt Bruck, Eddie Van Halen's tech. Matt decided that he needed to sell the amp and sent it back to Vic who then called me right away knowing that I had been looking for one. Vic shipped it to me on approval but said if I returned it, he would know I was crazy! As this was one of the best sounding 100w heads he had heard. Other than some normal maintenance, the only 2 things done were a bias trim pot added, and a central ground for low noise. You can see the central ground in the last picture where all of the ground wires from the amp come together in one place. It is set up like Eddie’s amp and has an NOS quad of American 6CA7 power tubes. Please call for more details. (head will ship in a road case that must be returned to the store)

  Marshall 1971 50w Lead Head
(Item#222) 1971 50w non-master lead head, amp is mostly all original with only a few parts that were replaced due to failure, pilot light, a few electrolytic caps, 1 input jack and a grounded power cable. This amp was pretty bright and aggressive so I decided to change out a few parts for more plexi circuit values. The 2nd mustard cap was a .0022uf which I replaced with an .022uf original mustard cap, the .022 a much fatter and fuller tone, there's also an original .68uf mustard cap that I added, also pulled the bright cap off of the channel 1 volume pot. Original parts that I replaced are also included. Amp is now much warmer and has more of a plexi vibe. Amp has a brand new NOS set of Siemens EL34 power tubes, and Mullard 12AX7 preamp tubes(powerand preamp tubes are worth about $300.00), the head box is missing the back panel, really works well with an attenuator and I'm also listing a used Alex's Attenuator that would be a good match-up, Head will ship in a road case that will then have to be shipped back to me.

  Marshall 1979 JMP 50 Master Volume 2204 Head
(Item#200) 1979 Marshall JMP 50w master volume 2204 head, converted to EL34's and I just installed and biased a new set of JJ EL34 power tubes, great sounding amp with a good amount of gain, big and fat sounding, the last few years of these heads seem to sound the best, '79-'81. There was an extra speaker jack added with some resistors on it and I beleive that's it's a line out. Has no effect on the 2 stock speaker jacks and certainly could be disconnected.

  MGL AmpWorks Lead Master 50 Amp Head
(Item#262)  I am now taking orders for the new MGL AmpWorks Lead Master 50 head. Below is the description for the amp. The head is available in either a tolexed Baltic Birch head cab at $2,700.00 or hardwood cab at an upcharge of $300.00. We have already done some great looking wood cabs in flame maple, birdseye maple, cherry and black walnut. A number of tolex colors are available: black, purple, dark green, white, cream(Swanson Cabinets had a roll of cream made for them and it looks like the creamy white that was used on the Plexi era Marshalls). There is also a matching tolexed 2x12" speaker cab available loaded with Celestion 25w greenback reissue speakers for $800.00. Amp heads and speaker cabs will be made to order and will require a deposit. The amp is based on my personal Marshall 2204 that I've owned for over 20 year. I got together with a group of my good friends and we spent about 8 months cloning the voice of my amp. First is Guy Harvey who has been building amps on the side for local customers for years. He and I did most of the R&D and he is doing the actual builds. My other friend, Evan Cantor, who was half owner and designer for Bedrock amps years ago has been a great help and advisor. Another long time friend, Joel Paul, who is a guitar player that owns a custom furniture and cabinet business so he is making the hardwood head cabs. Jeff Swanson of Swanson Cabinets will be making the tolexed head boxes and matching speaker cabs. My original 2204 amp has lower voltage than a typical amp from that period and it has a lot to do with the warmer, fatter and creamy tone that it has. Between my store and personally I've probably had about 75 of the JMP 50w master volume heads and none of them had the voice of this amp. We spent endless hours choosing parts and listening side by side with my original amp. we sourced a lower voltage mains transformer which is producing within a few volts of specs of the original. Listened to a number of the top replacement 784-139 output transformers and decided to use the hand wound Chris Merren version which will be stock in the amp. Chris makes amazing sounding transformers! I had a local metal shop help with the layout and then make custom .090" aluminum chassis with welded and finished ground corners. Then another local business took care of black powder coating and silk screening. The Metropoulos "Zero Loss" effects loop comes stock along with a couple of other extra switches. The mini switch on the front next to the preamp knob allows you to remove the .001 cap on the preamp pot from the circuit. This switch can also be used as an optional gain switch that will switch between 2 different gain structures, one position is the stock 2204 value and the other position adds a fair amount of gain. This option is available for an  upcharge of $50.00. The "Voicing" switch on the back allows you to choose between 2 different negative feedback resistors. The "Classic" position voices the amp like my original and in the "Modern" position it gets a little more aggressive, brighter and a bit more gain. all hand wired and all made locally right here in New Hampshire. Amps will come with reissue Mullard EL34 power tubes and NOS Chinese 12AX7 preamp tubes. I also have a small stash of German Siemens EL34's and will offer a pair of them as a $125.00 upgrade. I have added a few pictures of the completed circuit and the hardwood head box. Here's a build component list: Custom made .090" aluminum chassis that is powder coated gloss black and then silkscreened with metallic gold ink, Low voltage mains power transformer, hand wound Merren Audio output transformer, mil spec teflon coated 18 AWG stranded silver plated copper wire, JJ filter caps, NOS Amphenol power tube sockets, Belton preamp tube sockets with gold anodized shields, PEC 2W mil spec pots, 9 SoZo caps and 1 Mallory, mostly 1w carbon film resistors, real UK Cliff jacks, Metropoulos "Zero Loss" effects loop, gold plated and knurled brass knobs. Also will be working on a number of various sound clips.(NOTE: THERE ARE 2 SETS OF PICTURES YOU CAN LOOK AT. CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL AND THE BLACK TOLEXED AMP WILL COME UP. IN THE TOP LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE PICTURE YOU WILL SEE #1 and #2, WHEN YOU CLICK ON #2 YOU WILL LOAD THE PICTURES OF THE HARDWOOD CAB) CLICK HERE TO GET TO MY YOUTUBE PAGE TO LISTEN TO SOUND CLIPS JUST GOT THIS VIDEO CLIP JOE BONAMASSA TEST DRIVING AN MGL50 HEAD ANOTHER VIDEO JUST IN:GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE DEMO
