I saw them two times in my life and hope that they will come back, soon. Exuse my english.

The recording sound a bit “fizzy” to me, if you get me. But the tone seems to be very nice! 🙂 what speakers do you have in that cab ?
GuitarjosiiPosted at 02:23h, 25 April
It may sounds “fizzy” because the Master was set only on 1 of 10(?)
I don’t know… but I feel the same! 🙂
These are Vintage Marshall G12 16ohm speakers by celestion.

Vintage 30s with Marshall decals? Well if so, I have an advice for you: Try to mike your cab from a distance! To capture the sound of V30s, close miking is not the case 🙂 Give it a try!
adam10603Posted at 00:40h, 26 April
close miking works better with low wattage speakers, like Greenbacks

Oh and also… try to build in a Lar/Mar type of PPIMV (you can find out more about it in the Metroamp Wiki).
The stock master vol. knob on these JMPs attenuate the signal BEFORE the phase inverter tube (V3). And typically, old-fashioned Marshall amps distort at the phase inverter. That tube is the soul and heart of your overdrive. For example if you dime a Super Lead, 80% of the distortion comes from the PI tube. So installing a PPIMV in your amp, and cranking the stock master vol. will take you MUCH closer to the full-on thing!
sorry for writing in many comments 😀 but things don’t come into my mint at once 😛

Wow, thanks for the tips! 🙂
.. but nobody said, that it’s my Marshall. 😀
My brother owns it, but I’ll tell him about the PPIMV!
Say, what means this “Lar/Mar”?
I thought PPIMPVs are only designed for NMV-Amps?! :O

More Master Volume you get and more compression you will add to the overall sound… PPIMV could be fine if you need only crunchy or distorted sounds but cleans are always “dirty” with that type of MV…
So it depends… Could be a great solution but in the end I prefer always the old MV … with some tricks 😉
Try a Secret-1 Overdrive (http://www.secretefx.com) in front of it and you’ll partially recover some of the bottom, punch, dynamics, 3D beauty you’re loosing with a traditional master volume. Guaranteed!!! \m/ 🙂

Well, the Marshall is already modified. It has a Fulltone Fatboost inside. One of the speakerouts was made into an input for footswitch over which you can activate or deactivate the boost…
but it’s only used for Solos..
The amp is only used for an overdrive sound, so the idea with PPIMV could be great 🙂

Ho acquistato il Secret-1 dopo aver visto il tuo video e… wow!!! Ora sto proseguendo con il lavoro del nuvo ampli…
Voglio assolutamente fartelo testare quando sarà pronto!!!
Cmq… GRANDE SUONO COME SEMPRE||| \m/
Buona Pasqua, Nick

Sounds great to me!

Sounds something like Airbourne’s tone in the beginning.
Great playing 😀

I think it kicks ass
Devil'Fingers"Posted at 15:30h, 23 April
How did you learn that? 😛
GuitarjosiiPosted at 20:18h, 23 April
i have no idea, sir…
i guess i unconsciosly copied that from angus (?) ;D
rugsterPosted at 14:53h, 23 April
Bit too much gain for me but some nice playing. I think an shortened version would have been better though. 14 mins is a long time to listen. 🙂
GuitarjosiiPosted at 20:13h, 23 April
i accidently put that part without the mids into the video twice, sorry for that 😀
rugsterPosted at 21:45h, 23 April
No worries! Fantastic playing, better than I could ever do 🙂 I’m really missing my JMP (at Marshall for a service), having to use GR at the moment which is fine but you can’t beat the real thing.
