26 Oct AC/DC’s “Live in Paris” (Pavillion) All 2203 Content

Well, as much as Angus or Malcolm said they didn’t like Marshall Master Volumes of that era, they used them extensively, or at least live they did. I think – I am starting to think seriously – that they used them sometimes in the studio as well. I am conducting experiments to verify this, but it all takes time. It’s easier instead to prove it with original era videos. These are some of them for example. All JMPs, and likely, many 2203s (Marshall 100 Watt Master Lead MkIIs). Can be heard clearly in Angus’ tone, unmistakeably.

So when you wonder, “what a late ’70s Marshall JMP 2203/2204 sounds like?“. Well, this is IT.

Here for you are some of these videos, “remastered” it says, these are from YouTube:

24 Oct New, Tony Platt Interview on “Back in Black” (Premier Guitar)

In this issue of Premier Guitar, Platt is interviewed again regarding the techniques used for recording Back in Black,

It’s no surprise then that this album, still increasing in sales, is now the second highest selling album in history. That fact in itself tells us several things: not only is it preparing itself to break that record but it may also be considered (as I do, and I have done for years) the most sold album of all time, not only in rock music, but across all genres: out-selling The Beatles, Michael Jackson “Jacko”, etc.

Confirmation surely, that the band was and still is a great band (more…)

22 Oct Finding my ultimate AC/DC Amp – the Marshall JMP

Hello Guys,

this is my first article here on solodallas.com.  As I’m rather a beginner when it comes to guitars and amps, this will be an article from a beginners view. Maybe this article can help other beginners finding the right amplifier they are looking for and why its better to buy a used JMP instead of a new Amplifier if you want the “Back in Black tone”. And maybe the pro’s can add something helpful in the comments.

Always being a big AC/DC fan, I dreamed of playing guitar (and sounding) like Angus for a long time. Earlier this year I finally bought a Gibson SG standard and started to learn. Had an Epiphone SG before, but it was rather uncomfortable to play, so this one wasn’t played much.  Amp was a Marshall MG 15 CDR 15 Watt Combo, a solid state amp with a FDD circuit which simulates tube sound.
