    Earliest Known Recording(s) for the MV JMP?

    My guess would be Scott Gorham & Brian Robertson of Thin Lizzy. If I remember correctly, I think they even used those amps on the Jailbreak album in 1976.

    NMD: Lead 12 .... best bedroom plexi!

    Great amp! I have one myself. Mine is an '89 with the separate line and headphone jacks and the Celestion G10D25 speaker. In a nutshell - yes, there are 4 different versions. I believe the most desirable one is the first version (ca. 1982) which has no line out or headphone jacks. The drive has...

    Bluesbreaker vs VM 2266C

    I do not have any personal experience. However, this from Steve Dawson, the designer of the VM. "The Vintage Modern is basically a JTM45 with some hot rodding.

    Marshall Mosfet 100 Reverb 5100 1x12 Combo

    Hi! No disruption at all. It's nice to see this thread again. Anyways, I wouldn't really compare this amp to a JC-120. And I think the JC-120 is probably a better amp for clean.

    JCM800 2205 for $2k??

    Love mine! I'm a Schenker freak too, and I think the later models (IMO) sound best.

    Vintage Modern At Lower Levels Observations

    "The 50W Vintage Modern will put out around 36W(RMS) clean and 50W(RMS) when driven, just like the old JTM45s. Other 50W Marshalls put out 50W (RMS) clean then more when driven. The 100W VM put outs 77W (RMS) clean and 100W (RMS) when driven."
