I still have this 'Monster-amp' from the 80s.....
one of the great sounding Marshall SS amps
Does look monstrous ... ishhh.
I'll go the other way with my so small you could lose it Vox MV50 Boutique. I like it's Nutube technology. It does sound like a ... tube. I also got a Vox Stomplab to spice it. Great duo they make.
Oh ... and there's this one.
The Blue Valvetronix Amp
The first Valvetronix to be released were the AD60/120VT, (followed by the AD120VTH - head) in July 2001. Specifically designed as gigging amps, these hybrid amps were a revolution in tonal quality from previous modelling amps because of the unique 'valve reactor' circuitry that Vox had developed, which utilised valves working with the digital modelling. Combined with quality effects from Korg, it was a superb amp that delivered tone & touch response that was closer to an all-valve amp than had arguably been developed previously by any other modelling amp manufacturer.
Picture of my Blackstar HT-5th Anniversary combo has disappeard so I'll repost

Herr Peter: Danke fur die foto.
I am not very knowledgeable about Marshall amplifiers. I have a couple questions about this Marshall 5213.
1. Is the footswitch for this amp a single-button pedal? That is what I have read. I bought a single-button footswitch for mine.
2. Also, I have read that it is possible to use the footswitch to toggle back and forth between 2 different overdrive/distortion sounds. However, I have not been able to figure out how to do this (despite having downloaded the old Marshall spec sheet/instructions, which are not at all clear to me). With my 1-button pedal, I have figured out how to choose clean or dirty, not 2 different levels of dirt. Is it possible to use the footswitch to toggle back and forth between 2 different overdrive/distortion sounds? If so, how?
Thank you in advance if you can help with either or both of the above questions! I know the second one may be difficult to explain to someone who doesn't know much about Marshalls. As to that second question, remember that Ich bein ein dumbkopf!
P.S.-- obviously, I don't actually speak German (my legal last name is Krüger, but unfortunately that has not gifted me with any inherent understanding of my forefathers' native language)
this is how the orig FS looks like (just with channel instead of boost)
No, this isn't possible (to my knowledge)
The 5213 actually has a seperate third channel, back then it was advertised to use this for an acoustic-electric guitar or even a microphone....
I've used the 3rd channel via an AB-box for another clean sound
I'll add an user-manual as a PDF
BTW, Your 'German' isn't that bad
omg I played a AC15VR (Valve Reactor) recently that was so good I thought it was a C1 at first, if it’s still there this weekend I’m buying that thing.
my darlin’s, 95 JTM 30 original speaker, 76 Peavey Classic 50 2x12 with Vintage 30s (HEAVY AS SHIT) but I love it nonetheless.
My brand spanking new Vox Mini5......
I'se got one o' dese (LE with the celestion greenback):
which is a tone monster
And one o' dese:
which is essentially a Bandit with an added gain stage. It sounds amazing, from jazz to hardcore punk and everything in between, no problemo. The gain on the middle channel sounds better than any pedal I run through it, not kidding. Just a great amp, I was skeptical at first because I definitely prefer tube amps, but I'm really glad I got it.
I also have an old Crate vintage club 20 amp, one of the first amps I ever got, which are total crunch monsters. Omg, it sounds so good. One of the pots is scratchy no matter how much deoxit i spray in there, but I'll just keep using it until it dies. It just has this woody crunchy tone that I never found anywhere else. Really great amps, too bad they got a bad rep because of reliability, I think it was, because they sound awesome.
And finally, a Superchamp XD that I put a Weber ceramic Sig 10 in. Sounds great for blackface tones, and can even get a little tweedy. I plan to get a DRRI to replace it, but for now it's great for practice and as a light grab and go.
None of these are my pics, btw, I just pulled them off the web. But you get the idea ;-)
I have an Epi Valve Jr. 5 watts head and the 12" Emience extension cable. Never thought 5 watts could be so loud. I would love to have your Epi Valve Custom. I also have a VoxDA5 in my living room for practice and noodling while watching TV.
I have accumulated a few, and still want one more…
#1 is my ’64 Tremolux, which I got for less than what you’d spend for a DRRI. It’s my all-round, all-purposes amp. Sounds wonderful at apartment level, sounds great at rehearsal, and can cover all my gigging needs effortlessly. It’s probably my favorite piece of gear.
This is my swing amp. A ’46 Epiphone Zephyr. Lots of reliability issues (it let me down at the first gig I took it to) and it does weird things (especially adept at picking up radio frequencies ;D). But what do you expect from a 74 years old piece of gear based on 1930s tube technology? If and when I get good at keeping the quirks under control, it will go on the bandstand with my big band. Otherwise, it will stay at home as a recording amp. It sounds unique and fantastic (http://www.epiphonetalk.com/threads...thread-or-how-a-’46-epiphone-amp-sounds.4769/)
I also have a little tweed champ clone that I love. It sounds so good!
Other amps in the house(s)
- an original tweed Jazzkat I got for next to nothing. Great little jazz amp.
- a very handy Yamaha THR10C (which has become my son’s bass amp)
- an equally handy Mustang Iv2
- an enigmatic Acoustic Image Clarus II with RE 12” cab which I might keep or I might flip depending on whether I find a use for it. Flip to fund a big tweed amp looks likeliest right now…

If you want to post pictures, you have two easy options.
Hit the camera icon (blue arrow) if you have an external source for your pictures such as imgur etc.
To upload your pictures directly, hit the "Upload a File" button (yellow arrow) and
There's another way, but that tends to get used by folks who have spent waaaaay too much time on forums.
Well... all the amps, cabs, and some more are packed in this right now...
Peavey Classic 30 (U.S.A.) + 1x12 Cab
Small enough to transport, serious enough for gigging.
