So I just got my Sovtek Mig 50 today! I got it for a great prive, and that was clearly for a reason. I'm going to replace all the pots and jacks in additino to just having a general clean up done on it and maybe some mods for a little extra gain. It is a clone of a '59 Bassman running El-34s. It gets some great clean tones and breaks up to some sweet bluesy overdrive on input one. On input two it gets pretty crunchy, but I wouldn't mind a big more gain.
Pics!

Get a good boost and prepare for some serious rock! Thems is some sweet amps for sure. Getting pretty tough to find. Great score dude.

Neat! Any opinions on the build quality? I have a friend considering one of these...

I have yet to open up the chassis and take a look, I was to busy playing it! With that said though, the jacks need replacing and the pots need a good cleaning. All that is probably just from being used a lot as it is over 20 years old.
It does get a pretty sweet rock tone! It kind of makes me want an LP.....

That's probably because a Bassman with EL34s and a SS rectifier is a Marshall Plexi.

A plexi isn't a direct copy of a Bassman, it has some mods.

Those mods being a SS rectifier and EL34s, not to mention that the OT has different impedances so it has less Negative Feedback than the Bassman. The only other difference is in the cathode resistor of V1, in the Bassman it's shared and in the Plexi it's separate.

Other than that, I really don't think there's anything in it.

Like at all.

I'm having trouble understanding how a testicle relates to all this.
That's what I was thinking.

I also lul'd when I realised my Dad owns a NAD hi-fi and I never before realised how it was the singular form of a teste.
