    It's not that difficult to absorb $1300, but you'll kick yourself if you let go of the blue PRS with white Duncans! You'll lose a ton of money on it too. Keep it! Jeez, and play it on the Marshall. That's a winning tone combo, if you ask me.

    By the way, which of your OD pedals sounds the best on this amp?
    Well I just got a pretty nice raise so the wife and I will discuss it, but the problem is I'm lusting for a Heritage 535 on top of everything else!

    The OD pedals.

    The Pup booster gives me more of the same. No coloring to speak of. The SD-1 gives me more grind and midrange. It introduces a lot of harmonics too. When the amp is able to do its thing either pedal works great for leads, when the amp is down a bit lower I like to use the booster for rythym and the SD-1 for leads.

    I haven't REALLY cranked it but once so for non-apartment destroying levels I use both pedals on the Z, and the JMP for very high gain at low levels, but we all know how great that sounds.

    well they are the same in the early 800s for sure..but didn't Marshall start changing alot of the guts on the 2203/4 in the mid to late 80s?

    oppps sorry...


    ignore my post...JMPs are most certainly not 800s...

    not even close...

    nope...

    Being the model numbers were the same I had wondered, but I didn't want to talk out any orifices....well any more than normal.


    lol at TGB

    Yeah, that's a very fair price for that mint halfstack. Most at that price look like they've been gigged for two decades.

    I had done some freelance work for his shop and he owed me for that, and I knew he had got a good deal on it. I needed some room for the re-tube because I heard teh microphonics the other day.
