Its a made in 1969 50w JMP.
This is the story of how I aquired it. I was very lucky.
I bought that about 18 years ago from a guy that was giving me lessons.
I gave up after about 8 months because I wasn't as good as clapton, hahaha.
He offered it to me after he bought a new amp and I got it for about 50 pounds. I had no idea what I had bought.
14 years later I decided I wanted to learn again, bought myself a guitar and a practice amp and bashed away.
I thought back to this marshall that I had left in the UK when I moved to Australia. I asked my brother to take some pictures and I did a little reasearch and low and behold I found out that I had scored a very sought after little amp.
I finally got my hands on it again about 4 months ago. It survived the trip from the UK, I got a local amp tech to look over it for me before I plugged it in.
He had to replace the original power lead input with a more modern one(my brother lost the original power lead), replace the pre amp tubes, clean up all the pots, replace a couple of the knobs and thats about it.
It has a UK made Mullard EL34 in one socket and a Phillips made EL34 in the other. The tech seems to think the Mullard could be the one it shipped with in 1969 and the Phillips tube would also be quite old. They are running at about 90% and they are well matched so he did not change them.
It has a master volume mod and some XLR speaker outs in the back, apart from that it is original.
