I was digging through my Storage room and found an old '89 Marshall Lead 100 Mosfet amp head. Thinking about adding it to my rig as a secondary head, was wondering what everyone thought about this amp.

It's one of the few solid state amps that actually sounds ok. It never took off because at the same time they released the JCM800 so their claims of "as good as tubes" was laughed at by anybody with ears.

I think it sounds great, I remember why I packed it away. Has a very nice clean tone to it and can pump out a good volume for a smaller head.

Why would you care what anyone else thought of it? You already own it, if it sounds good and you find a use for it then cool.

They're not too bad. It just goes to show that MG's aren't such piles of crap because Marshall can't make a SS amp. They're rubbish because they are cheap rubbish, end of story.

Because I have several amp heads that can go in my third amp head slot on my rig, and I wanted to see if it's worth the cleaning and repair (if needed).

Ok so as I said, if it sounds good and you find a use for it then there's your answer. You also have to weigh whether you like it enough to take up that spot when you could have a different head there.
