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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
I'm so glad I found this community!
I found y'all by doing a "Marshall forum", search cuz I had some questions concerning my amp.
I really like what I've seen and read so far. You guys seem to be a great and knowledgeable bunch.
I hope I can make good gear friends here...
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...
