Trading my Mesa Dual Rec for a '73 Marshall Super Lead 100?

Hi UG,

I've just put up my Mesa Dual Rec for sale, as it isn't directly what I wanted after all, and I've got an offer from someone who wants to trade it for his Marshall Super Lead 100, made in 73, new tubes and he's willing to throw in a Fulltone OCD as well.

Thoughts?
Seems like a sweet deal (seeing the prices the Super Lead goes for on eBay), but I'm not that good with values and such.

Thanks in advance. :-)

thats a good deal if you like the old plexi tone. Just remember that the Marshall has NO MASTER VOLUME control unless it has been modified. so to get that classic Marshall overdrive you will need to crank the volume up to ear shattering levels. So if your playing at home or live this is something to realy consider.

The Master Volume mod is pretty easy to have done by any competent tech.

He says it has a master volume. I do have some problems with only having 1 channel at a time (it doesn't have footswitching, right?), as that is the reason I got rid of my Vox before I got my Mesa.

no you can not change ch on it with out pluging you cable into one of the other inputs. but you can combine ch 1 and 2 together by using jumpers. It may not be what you want, but it will be infinately more valuble than the mesa will ever be.

Can you elaborate on the combining of channels 1 and 2? I don't fully understand what that would do, but I've seen it done (and he does it as well, if his pictures are legit).

Furthermore, I prefer practicality and what I actually want over value, not saying that I would trade my Mesa for something worth a lot less. :P

Well in your case sinse you need a clean ch and a dirty ch, the mesa is the better choice for you. You may want to look at the Marshall JCM2000 DSL50/100. Even the Vintage Modern is wortha good look.

Also Look for a Splawn Quick Rod.

To combine the 2 ch's of the marshall, you patch the ch 1 and 2 inputs to gether with a cable this combines the 2 chs together.

Oh, didn't know about that, with the channel combining.
The other guitarist in my band has a JCM 2000 TSL 100 and I don't really like that and other than a plexi, I'm not that much of a Marshall fan anyway.

I guess it'll be a no-go then. Thanks for helping, this can be closed. :-)

The DSL is very diffrent from the TSL.

You may want to look for a Framus Cobra or Framus Dragon. Both are great amps and you can get them used for $1300ish and some times even cheaper. There is a Framus Dragon on GC used site for <$1000 right now.

I was never a marshall guy (except for the Plexi) but I really like my DSL. I have almost always played a modern american voiced amp.

I'm in Belgium, so no GC for me. There used to be a Dragon up for 800 euros here when I bought my Mesa. :-)

I'd really like an Orange amp, never came across something they made that I didn't like. :P

Just curious:

What's the pedal that functions like a Y cable. You hit the pedal and it goes back and forth from one to the other? Is it a looper? Wouldn't that let him use both of the Marshall's channels without having to unplug and plug in each time he switches channels?

A looper? No you just use an ABY pedal.

Good investment, not the amp you want.

You could probably trade for an Orange Rockerverb 50 or 100.

I second the Rockerverb 50. or an OR50. it can be set up like a two channel amp with the footswitchy master volume. What kind of music do you play, just curious?

If I K0nijn I is interested in the Plexi tone, I don't think he'll come close with the Orange Rockerverb or OR. I'd look at the QuickRod or Bogner Ecstasy or better yet, the 20th Ann Ecstasy.

He said he likes Orange amps those were just two I though of in that price range. it's hard to recommend stuff without knowing what he's really after.

Unless you really like the Super Lead tone, the added hassle and risk with getting a vintage amp makes it a total no-go.

I figured out the Super Lead won't be what I need, but I appreciate your input. :-)

I like the plexi tone, but I like Orange amps a lot as well. :-)
I might make a what amp thread again, to the delight of everyone here (sarcasm).

Get a Budda Superdrive. AC-30 cleans with Plexi/800 overdrive, footswitchable. Venture out of the big name brands.

The super lead's worth more. I say trade it, then sell it and get an Orange.
