1971 Marshall JMP Mods & MasterVolume installation

•January 9, 2014 • 2 Comments


A friend recently asked me to give his 1971 100Watt Marshall JMP ( 1959 circuit ) a facelift and add a Post PI MV.  It had never been serviced before and hadn’t been played for a while ( say 20 years or so :D )Everything from tubes to caps were stock and it didn’t power up. Continue reading to see what I did to the amp and how the MV was installed.

For those like me who solder at home without much air flow inside the room , this could be a cheap and easy way to keep yourself out from the rosin fumes produced when soldering.

Spiral horn speakers under construction. Part3

Hey there,
Long time no post. Been kinda busy these days but I’m fortunately back in the business.

Finally got the cornu’s sanded, puttied, and white lacquered. It’s been quite a pain in the a** but they turned out great!

Finally some updates on my SpiralHorns! Received the pair of Fostex FE108EZ and some damping material couple of days ago.

For that reason I decided to set up a provisional scenario to get some initial listening impressions of the speakers. This is what I did, and a small preliminary review of my spiralhorns.
Part3 is soon yet to come with the finished speakers and final listening impressions!!
