A while back, some1 said i should think about A/B ing my Bassman with a Marshall. I like the idea of it but am absolutly clueless when it coems to Marshalls. So here's where you come in . I'd like to get all the info i can on old marshalls. As you can tell, i like vintage equipment, but if they're putting out amps that are better now days for around the same price, i'll think about it.

anyways
thanks boys and girls

If you can crank amps, word on the streets is that vintage moderns are amazing if you can let them sing. Either that, or a Plexi clone, or even a plexi reissue. The plexi clone will sound more accurate to an actual vintage plexi though.

EDIT:
Get a freakin haircut dude...

Vintage marshalls are going to be $2500+

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

haha, not to turn this into a how i got my gear thread, but 've been paying it off since i was 12 years old, the yamaha and the epiphone were gifts, music is about the only thing i spend my money on, so yeah, anyway, back to the topic, what do you think of old super leads? they'd need to be 100 watts atleast to keep up with my bassman (its 135 watts)

Uh.
Dont crank your 135 watts?
Most old marshalls only come in the 100 watt variety anyway.

Old superleads would prolly sound great ab'd with a bassman.

i agree with kool. it'd probably sound nice if you ab'd. and for the record, a 50 watter could keep up with a 135 (esp if you dont dime the 135w and headroom isn't a huge issue) so watts with the vintage marshall shouldn't be much of a problem

i know that a 50 watter can be just as loud, its just that in my old band my bassman had this nasty habit of drowning out the other guitarists 100 watt Vox
