Vintage 63 JTM45 Offset Sound Clip and pictures

Postby plexi on Sat Feb 24, 2007 7:07 am

Did a sound clip that was as basic as it gets. Used my Baker B1 guitar with my own pickup in the bridge direct into the old circa 1963 JTM45 offset with the original RCA 6L6 tubes that came with the amp! Played it on one of my Mojave 2X12 Alnico Blue Cabinets. Set the amp tone controls the same for the rhythm track as I did for the lead track. I even use the amp cranked to 10 for both clean and lead but the only difference was the guitar volume. Great dynamics.

Awesome tone. Incredible what a classic amp and a guitar can do in the right hands.

I love that song!

I also use some Bardledoo caps, and like what I hear. ;)

Thanks for the Kudos. That is one of the oldest Marshalls ever built and in existence. Looking inside you can see the ornate and careful details of a skilled technicians work, that being Ken Bran himself. While in the process of recording I was keenly interested in its tone and results. The "Vintage Vibe" that you get while cranking on an original early JTM45 Offset is pretty strong to say the least, very inspiring. This model is the grandfather of all Marshalls and I wanted to hear what was going on in the minds of the builder and the hands of the users from 1963. That's the reality of it. It's Townshend, Clapton, Page, Beck, Gilmour and a laundry list of others just rolling off the speakers. Kind of like an old Muscle Car or Hot Rod, it transports you back to the time it was made. That's what I love about vintage amps, the connection to the history and the manifestation of the true original tones is living history at that very moment you fire it up. Very rewarding and fun. Even an amature guitar player like myself can come out sounding good without trying hard. Believe me it wasn't a fight to get a good sound out of this Offset Marshall, not like it can be with so many other modern amps now a days.
:wink:

Interested in any trades? I could probably live with only one kidney, maybe even with only one testicle...

Great tone! Nice playing too. :wink:
Have you given thought to specing that amp out for an addition to your Mojave line? I'd buy it.

Love the tone. That sounds like an echoplex, swilrling in the background. Was that mixed in at recording?? You know, the delay.

Love that kidney and Testicle offer but no thanks. You guys are to much. The echo was in the pro tools. I brought my tape echo over but we ended up not hooking it up. Like I said it was a simple quick and dirty sound clip but the tone of the amp just shines.
