NOPE!

today we have here a beautiful Lee Jackson XLA-1000.
based on the JCM800, but beefed up with a few features.

1) MOAR GAIN
2 another channel with MOAR GAIN
3)built in power brake
4)5 way mid sweep selector \m/

here are th epics. I lost a tube in transit. no biggie.

I took the amp apart before i played it BECAUSE I COULD!!!

...and because the previous owner hot wired the bust impedance switch in the 16 ohms selection (why i don't know. seems 4 ohms would have made more sense...)

anyway!

busted and un-wireified (disconnected) switch...



i found the leads and soldered the right ones together...

And here is the beast setting atop my other amp..

Beautiful find. I've only seen a very few of these over the years. Enjoy it. Thanks for the gut shots. Added to gut shots pr0n collection (yes I have one of those).
Edit: Too bad there are no high res gut shots

Wow. I'm looking for a high gain cheap tube amp. I was looking at VTMs and AORs, but is this worth a look? Does it have a clean channel?

How do you like it compared to the 2203? There's one of these locally that I've been eyeing, but I really don't want it unless it can pummel faces in with massive amounts of gain

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

@MC

ITs a pretty sweet amp. and it really is just a souped up 2203 in every fasion. i don't really get how mine sounds so 2203ish with those 6l6s but it does.

it would prolly sound more 2203ish than my current 2203 if i dropped in some el34s...

AND I CAN AND I DONT HAVE TO REBIAS!

god i am in love with this amplifier...
