NAD (Well, "New" to me, anyway)!

Hi All,

 

4 years ago, I found a "like new" Marshall 1960-A (Slant) Cabinet, for a ridiculously fair price.

I purchased it, obviously, and had been searching for an equally "good deal" on a "used" Marshall

Head. Well, last evening, while in Wichita, to go to a concert at The Cotillion Ballroom ("Mike

Finnigan, and The Phantom Blues Band"), I went into Guitar Center, as it was "on the way," and

I wanted to purchase (another) pedal, that I'd taken a "shine" to (Dunlop M75 "Super Badass Distortion")

and after that purchase, 2 of my friends and bandmates, decided they wanted to look as some basses,

"just for fun, and to kill time," before heading a couple of miles, down the road, to The Cotillion

Ballroom. Unfortunately (for my checkbook), but fortunately for ME, the bass section was right

next to the Marshall Amp section. I spied (as in ZOOMED IN ON) a "Used" but "like new" Marshall

2000 TSL-100 Head, at a price I thought (especially given the (literally) "Like New" condition,

was more than fair! And, I talked them down, another 100 bucks (including sales tax). So, what

was to be a 85 dollar purchase, ended up substantially higher, but an "awesome" deal, none the

less.

 

So, without further ado...

Tried it out, at home, this morning and what a "Fire Breathing Beast" it is! Still familiarizing myself, with all the knobs

and buttons, but so far it seems like an amazing amp, to Me! [thumbup] And, for the price I paid, I can't complain at all!

 

Cheers, [biggrin]

Way to go Chuck! You have now just joined an elite fraternity...owners of Marshall Stacks! Well done mate.

 

 

Thanks, Paul...it's a familiar feeling, from my youth (when I owned a Marshall "Major" AKA "The Pig," Full Stack).

I think, at this juncture, a 100 watt 1/2 stack will be more than enough. LOL But, IF I find a 1960-B Cabinet, in

equal condition, at the same price the 1960-A was purchased, "Who Knows" it may become a "Full Stack," at that point?

[biggrin]

 

Cheers,

You're lucky, that you have photos from your youth. I have precious FEW. No one around

us took photos, and/or IF they did, they're long gone! So, it's GREAT that you have those.

 

A FEW that I do have: LOL

shirt! LOL!!!!! [lol] [lol] [lol]

The big, home made" speaker cabinet (prior to covering) was named "McQuilda!" Why??? Who knows,

it seemed humorously appropriate, at the time. [biggrin]
