    Marshall 1987X Too Middy!

    Hi all, I own a 1987X 50w reissue. I haven't really been able to open her up very much in the house for the last 6 yrs., but I have a bud who lets me use his space to play. I run the 1987X through a 1960B cab. Now, when I'd run this beast at home, obviously I had to keep it low, so the...

    1987X Questions

    Hi all, I need some advice on what to do with some probs I have with my 1987X. BTW, are the dates for these amps printed like: M-2000? I noticed one of my 12AX7's on the far left was not glowing. And when tapping all the tubes with a pencil that 12AX7 on the left was very microphonic. I...

    Speaker Changing in a Stereo Cab?

    Hi all, I was just wondering something that I hope y'all can help me with. I own a 1960B G12-75 loaded stereo cab. I have my 1987X going through one side and a Wayde Firecat 150w going to the other side. Both set to 8 ohms. My question is this: I want some greenback type speakers for...

    Schematics for a 1987X

    Hi all, I need to find a schematic for a Marshall 50w 1987X. Mine has a two EL34s' and it does not have the effect loop. All the schematics I find are for the effect-loop models. I even saw one that had 6550s' in it. Also, I need some info on bias adjustments and OEM type of info...

    Full Blown Buzz

    Hi all, I have noticed that when I max out my volumes on my 1987X it makes a full blown *bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz* that can only be fixed by lowering it. Even when the volume is at 8-7 it makes this noise. I know obviously that cranking an amp burns the tubes quicker and some noise will be...

    Model Question

    Hi all, So I was wondering... what's the "X" in my 1987X Marshall for? Also, I saw on Harmony-Central gear reviews that there is a 1987XL and a 1987XW Plexi reissue. Are these better models of my amp. Is my amp a "Plexi" reissue? What does the "MKII" signify? Did it use to mean...

    1960B Cab Question

    Hi all, Here I have a stupid question but here it is: I can't figure out how to use all four speakers at once. I run my head at 8 ohms and I have my cab set to "Mono" and I have my output going into the 16 ohms side rather than the 4 ohms. Y'all have to forgive I'm not that well versed on...

    Angled Tubes!!

    Hi all, I really need a reply to this one. I just opened the box that contained my new tubes (EH EL34 & 12AX7s') and as I examined for breakage I noticed that the power tubes are not straight from the base of the tube. They're at an angle! Slight angle but none the less not seated in...

    Hi All! 1987X Questions

    Hi all, New here and I thought I'd ask for some suggestions or thoughts on my Marshall 1987X Reissue. I've had it since 2003, I think? Picked it up used for $700 at Sacramento Guitar Center. It has the, I would imagine, original Svetlana tubes (think I spelled that right) but the head case...
