    My 5275 75 watts reverb 1X12 combo which I'm the original owner, got it new in the mid 1980s (this old pic was way back from 1985 in So. Calif.), it's my most loudest of my three amp combos, great little amp.

    I used to have a pro tech neighbor that works on Marshall amps and I had him bulletproof all the internal connections in the early '90s.

    The other amp shown in the pic is my first amp Peavey Solo Series Bandit 50 watts solid state 1X12 bought it new in '81, and the last amp I still got is a '92 Mesa Boogie 60 watts tube 1X12 combo which I mainly use for playing clean sounds.

    My 5 guitars that I play with my 3 amps:
    Fender Floyd Rose Classic Strat HSS '60s re-issue black with maple fretboard made in '92
    Fender HM Strat MIJ with single DiMarzio humbucker, Kahler Spyder, white with rosewood fretboard made in '88
    Fender Strat MIJ SSS with Kahler Spyder white with rosewood fretboard '84-'87
    (very rare) 1986 Ibanez X-ING IMG2010 Guitar Synthesizer MIDI Controller made in Japan with optional Roland and Yamaha MIDI sound modules - silver with ebony fretboard
    1982 Ovation 1661-4 Balladeer electric-acoustic natural finish top, cutaway, deep bowl carbon fiber back of body and rosewood fretboard

    Oh Marshall. My first "big boy" amp was a Marshall. I learned guitar on a Squier practice amp. After a few years, I upgraded to a Peavy 1x12 studio solid state piece of junk. At the time, I thought that amp ruled. After years of playing the Peavy, I sprung for a Marshall.

    I bought a DSL with a 1960a 4x12 cab new from Guitar Center probably about 11 years ago now. I loved every second of it. One thing I'll never forget it the smell of the wood being as it was brand new.

    Nothing matches the low end of a Marshall stack...NOTHING. I eventually sold the head in favor of my dream head, an Orange ad30htc. For a while, I played it through my Marshal 4x12. Sadly, tastes changed and my back was being destroyed by lugging around the cab so I sold the cab too.

    Now I have my Orange ad30 head through an Orange 2x12 and a Fender DeVille 2x12. I do miss the Marshall sometimes because to be honest, nothing "rocks" as hard as a driven Marshall.

    5 watt, all tube Plexi SE, cascade/JCM800 build. I just finished it two weeks ago. I know, it still needs a faceplate.

    And my MG10, for the late night practice so I can use headphones and backing tracks. Thinking about cutting it down into a little head.

    Really like both of them!

    Here are my 3 Marshalls:

    SL-5
    Lead 12
    JCM 900 Model 2500

    I got the 900 a few months ago and it is the exact tone I've been hearing in my head for a few years. I leave the gain sensitivity at 0 and put the preamp at about 4.5 and I just love it. Smile everytime I plug into that.

    This is an early '80s JCM A Cab that I recovered about 4-5 years ago. Tedious work. It holds a quad of 1970 Celestion G12Ms (3 w/ 003 Pulsonic cones, 1 w/ 014). It also serves as the projection base for a 1971 Super Lead (1987 circuit). The head cab was stripped of its original black tolex when I got it 3 years ago. The original hardware & logo were reused.

    Space is tight in my temporary digs, so I recently picked up a Germino Bluesbreaker 2x12 cab and transferred the chassis and two of the pre-Rolas into it. The cabs reside in storage.

    After at least 50 amps I picked up my first Marshall yesterday. Special order Class 5 combo in dead mint condition. Haven't had enough time with it to decide if it's a keeper but I like it so far. I had sold a couple of Peavey VK112 tube amps in favor of an old Randall Century 500 I got for free but this caught my eye yesterday at GC and I had money in my pocket so....new amp day.

    Here's one of my Marshall MG100HDFX with the matching MG412B cab. Not the greatest amp in the world, but it was a good deal, and it sounds pretty decent.

    Nice, I have that same amp from the same year! Definitely loud little suckers aren't they? Bought mine used and it had been outfitted with KT88 power tubes and a Eminence Governor speaker so it sounded a little bassy compared with a typical JCM800. I ended up up putting a MXR 6-band EQ in the effects loop which helped tremendously. Also FWIW, I've tried a ton of OD pedals with this amp...you cannot go wrong with either a Boss SD-1 or a Wylde OD up front.
