How long do I have to wait before turning on the standby buttons after pressing the Power button? I mean optimal warm-up and safety of the tubes.

My amp is Marshall DSL20CR

Hello Guys,

i've been researching about Edward Van Halen Brown sound for 10 years. I mean the VH1 and VH2 albums.

I've tried many brown sound amps like the bray 4550, many plexis, sv20 and so on. I've come close with them but there always seemed to lack something.

because of that i've learn how to build amps to fulfill my quest and i think that by accident i found what was perhaps going on in eddie's amp. I believe i've perhaps built the best brown sound sounding amp and i want to share the mods i used with marshall.

I believe it was modded because in a biography released by journalist Neil Zlozlower José arredondo is interviewed and he said he created eddies tone with him and that the amp was really modded. José was at the end of his life and stopped modding amps he had nothing to win. Moreover eddie never denied this claimed from his biography. Then there is Rudy leiren which was eddie amp tour tech, josé was more the modding amp tech. Rudy leiren also admitted that the amp was modded. 

If Steve Fryette, Mike Solano, John Suhr and Dave friedman said that the amp was stock it's only because josé put the amp back to stock. Dave friedman even admitted in a live stream that half of the components were not stock but some had stock marshall values. here is a picture of Eddie's amp on the top (by dave friedman), the bottom one is a stock super lead 68 12309 8 numbers appart. :

See those cherry drop capacitors ? those were used a lot by José to mod amps. It's like one of his signatures.

 

 

 

It has been 2 years that i build amps and this year while experimenting with mods with Eddie's amp preamp specs (the ones leaked by dave friedman) i've managed to get closer than anything i've heard and it happened by accident. I inspired my mods by José arredondo mods (he was ed's amp tech from 71-72 until 1979 after being diagnosed with cancer). I was modding my amp and i forgot to solder something back and i turned the amp on and suprise i got the brown sound with this extremely rich and thick distortion. I was like wtf... ?!!!!!!!!!! then i checked my board and saw what happened. 

i'm not claiming it's the exact same mods eddie had but i believe it's close enough to offer to sell a brown sound amp for guitar players. It's way better than any brown sound amp that i've  ever tried for Vh1 and Vh2.

i've even made a website related to the tone (there are many corrections and updates to do) 

I really dig everything about his tone his humbuckers etc. For example i recently learnt that eddie used 12H30 55hz blackbacks combined with 20w greenbacks and got the confirmation by someone selling original cabinets owned and played by eddie during his early tours. The JBL d120f were there only to fill voids on the top cabs.

His first frankie humbucker was probably a dimarzio paf then when it got painted he used an overwound PAF from an es-335. The Bumblebee used an overwound dimarzio super distortion from the 70's. He later swapped the ceramic magnet for the one in the paf (which is probably alnico V). He then asked Duncan to clone the super distortion in black and decided to swap to alnico 2. This is the humbucker for fair warning and women and children first. for 1984 the kramer 5150, it was a damaged duncan JB reading 180k instead of the usual 16k this was recently confirmed by larry dimarzio

 

 

I wanted to share my findings with marshall amplification. if Marshall doesn't want it then i'll probably make the layout free access for everyone... and only those who will get their amp modded will be able to enjoy it...

it would be a waste to not take advantage of this and to give guitar players an opportunity to get this sound.

So is there any possibility to contact your team of research and development concerning guitar amplification ?

I have a Marshall Origin 50 Head.  Lovely amp.  When I run the Master past half way, the amp hisses regardless of anything being plugged into it.  Below 50% no hiss.  I turn Master to 3/4 and gain down to 1/4 so I can get a crystal clear tone.

Is this normal or is my amp faulty?

I have a Solid State Lead 100. I cannot find anything like it online. It is a one-piece unit with 5 inputs, serial number 18132. It was given to me years ago by someone who used it in the 1960s. How can I put a value on it?

Sorry to bother you again. Could you send me some configuration examples for a rhythm guitar with gain and slightly distorted with chorus, and another example for when it's time for the solo where I can activate that preset and clearly notice the volume increase? It would be example for A1 (rithm guitar) and A2 (solos)??. Where does the change and difference between the internal values of the two presets lie? Based on your example, which will be very helpful, I will be able to configure my settings for my band's songs when playing live, to know which preset is suitable for solos (because the volume is higher) and which preset works for rhythm, arpeggiated, or accompaniment guitar(lower volume). I know it's difficult, but if you send me a small outline, I can experiment with your suggestions. I'll leave you my email in case it's easier for you to connect with me. I would greatly appreciate this help, as I'm finding it impossible to play live with the Code 100 H and be confident in the parts of the song that are rhythm guitar and the parts where there's a solo that should stand out from the rest of the band.

Thanks very much for your usefull help

bonjour, 

Peut-on connecter des Airpods avec l'ampli pour que le son sorte par les Airpods, et non par l'ampli ?

Merci.

Hey all, have just received a ST20H, considerable scratching on the presence dial (only) would this be inherent to the amp?

Thanks!

Can somebody, please, make separate presets for the finnish bands "The rasmus" & "Negative". The rasmus during dead letters, hide from the sun, black roses and Negative during war of love and sweet n deceitful. I'm gonna tell you the amps both bands used. The rasmus used Line 6 flextone II, meanwhile Negative used Marshal Jcm800 /Plexi and later on jcm2000. Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a problem with myJVM1C combo. The clean channel has a substantial drop in volume when I use the footswitch.

However I suspect the footswitch may be the wrong switch: I don't see a code on it to identify the model, but it has an LED. (Metal chassis, single button, simply branded 'Marshall' and not marked 'channel', if that helps identify it.) The LED lights up on the clean channel, rather than on distortion. 

Are you abIe to say if this issue of the volume dropping is likely to be a result of the footswitch - or indicative of a problem with the amp itself?

Many thanks

Hello!

 

I am playing an MG series 100HDFX and I am looking for a compatible footswitch, to switch between the heavy and clean channel. I need lights to show which channel is active .

If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be a great help!

Thanks

I have a JCM 25/50 Model 2555 Silver Jubilee amp. I bought a used Marshall Power Brake a few months back. I'm absolutely thrilled with being able to  use my amp full blast at home in my downstairs studio. But I've tried to find out some information and background on the Power Brake, and there just doesn't seem to be any infor to be found anywhere. Since Marshall does not seem to have a US contact number anymore, I tried to email the question to the suggested contactus@marshall.com email address. It's been more than two months, and no response. Has anyone out there used one of these? I'd like to get your thoughts and what you experienced. And why did Marshall stop making them?

My DSL40CR-A amp is less than a year old and the speaker cuts out at moderate volume levels. The amp was purchased in Sydney, Australia at Billy Hyde Music Inc., an authorized dealer, but they are not a Marshall authorized repair center. How do I go about arranging for a warranty repair on my Mashall DSL40CR in the Sydney area?

Hallo guys.

Recently I bought brand new DSL5CR amp and whenever I connect it to PC via AUX cable, it has strange and annyoing pipe sound.

I recorded it and post it here: youtube ---> /shorts/kW7BX4se3Ro

Where is the problem, do I need to return the amp and request a new one? Playing guitar and listening to music with these sounds its really horrible...

 

Thanks for answer.

Thanks ahead of time!
