Oh Dear, he texted back ...
Thnx, It's got a Heritage G12 and sovtek 5881 power valves.HNAD!
What's the speaker in there?
I had a complete blind squirrel finds an acorn moment when I bought the JCM600 (JTM60) chassis and found this on Reverb.Anyone got a pic of what the cage is supposed to look like?
How's it sound?Thnx, It's got a Heritage G12 and sovtek 5881 power valves.

Tried it out for a min to make sure everything works..How's it sound?
Do you like the tones?
I made a lamp shade out of some metal that will work just fine.Might be something you could make, or have made?
Yes, I believe it's some sort of wheat color.That grill cloth is just that color I think right? Not faded like some of the mid 80s stuff. I seem to remember ads when they were new with similar cloth.
Don't see why not, the AVT comes with one.Congrats, a good looking Marshall.
I played a 2x10 version a few years ago and loved the tone. Good-warm Marshall tone. I’d definitely run a small fan behind it if using it for extended lengths of time.
Yup, Sovtek 5881The ONLY power tubes that should be in there (if amp is stock/unmodified) is the SOVTEK 5881/6L6WGC. These are slightly different than other 5881 & 6L6 tubes and any other tubes will likely have caused heating issues!
Yup, I like it a lot.How's it sound?

Now that I know what it's supposed to look like... thnx
Though that's kinda far down the project list right now...

No worries, I just needed to know what it looked like.HNUAD. When I can get around to it, I'll dig mine out of the road case that's currently a little buried, and provide pics and measurements for that cage.
The speaker out jacks function in an odd way. The "Extension" speaker jack (for 8 ohm use) only functions if something is also plugged into the "Internal" 16 ohm jack. This means that for 8 ohm operation, you must use either two 16 ohm speakers on separate cables "OR" plug a single 8 ohm speaker out of the "external" jack and plug a dummy (unwired) plug into the "Internal" jack to properly activate the switching. Kinda goofy, but that's the way it is. I suspect that folks not understanding this has been a source/cause for overheating by running an 8 ohm load out of the 16 ohm jack, over the years!
the stock speaker sounds like total @$$! Too percussive and harsh at all the wrong frequencies!
And yeah, the reverb in mine was totally lackluster, until the spring tank took a poop and stopped working. Years later I got a new M.O.D. branded tank (of the correct replacement number) and the reverb came to glorious life, sounding much better than the original ever did! I'll see if I can get the numbers off of it, without removal. IIRC, the new one was only $25-$30.

Good to know, luckily most all my cabs are 16 ohm.
Hummm, it sounded quite nice yesterday but more testing is in order.
Will compare it to my Weber alnicos
That's what makes me think it's time to check the connections in the reverb circuit.
