Good deal? Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series (2205) + 1960 cab


Kolera

Recommended Posts

For about $ 750,-.

 

Should I go for it? I have no use for an amp of that size, so the only reason to get it would be to mess around with it for a bit and then maybe put it up for sale again.

 

Is the 750,- a somewhat fair price? Anybody got any experience with this amp? Pros/cons?

 

 

Thanx.

It's set too low, the seller was told on a danish forum, but since he's already put it up for that price and needs to get rid of it because of a shortness of cash, he just wants to get it out the door fast.

 

It's a gigging amp and some of the knobs are very tight because of dirt and sh*t, but other than that it should be okay.

. Any Marshall-specific crap I should be looking out for?

 

Just the usual with tube amps - excessive snapping' date=' cracking, and popping. Smoke is usually a bad sign as well. [biggrin

 

You could look at the tubes - bright orange or red is often a sign of tubes in need of replacement (a more purplish glow is preferred). Also any tubes that respond micro phonically to a tapping from a chopstick or a pencil need replacing as well. However, for that price, you can afford to re-tube it easily.

 

I'd say fire it up an rock out. If it moves you, cha ching!
