Now I've only been playing 7 monthes so dont get all up in my face if I somehow sound stupid

Would it be possible, to mod my Crate V18 to sound like a classic Marshall? Like change the speakers, preamp, poweramp, etc. I'm looking to get my specs close to this http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Marshall-Vintage-Modern-2266-Tube-Combo-Amp?sku=480772

So add like ECC83, KT66, and Greenbacks; would that sound like a Marshall?

^ Nevermind

Look at my question a couple replies down, about British Blues speakers, thanks.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

Hmm, how would it sound with just greenbacks?

if you wanna hear how it sounds with greenbacks take it to a store that has a cab with greenbacks in it and plug your amp in it

Well before I bought the amp I read reviews saying you need to replace the speaker because the stock ones suck. That being said I liked the Marshall tone so I thought about doing the whole Marshall setup.

So instead, because this is a British Blues amp, what would be a good British Blues to replace that would give me a lot better tone?

someone just posted something with a link to someone who got a cheap(er) tube amp, and modded the preamp to follow a more marshall schematic. A lot of preamps function the same way, so it could be as simple as comparing the two diagrams of the preamps and changing some resistor or adding/subtracting resistors....

of course this would be the best case scenario and of course you have the possibility of breaking your amp

It would be cool to make it more plexi like.
