Thats a gorgeous set, extremely clean. I can almost hear it roar :mrgreen:

I have a similar set but a '72 amp and slightly newer cab (although still pulsonic cones). Pure magic 8)

I had an identical cab to that a while back. DD date codes on the speakers the works, I had to look closely at my pics to verify it wasnt my old cab! but mine was signed by Ron inside.

Yeah, I've heard that '72 JMP's are beasts, It would be nice to compare 'em


nice amp Superstar :thumbsup:

I've found some markings in my cab but I didn't paying much attention to them.

My 71 Smallbox 50 is a bit later than yours,still a roaring beast too after 15 years+ though i had to replace the crap original bias pot with a NOS CTS and now all is well.

I too have an SG though mine is a 65 Special with a humbucker in the bridge....these are just great amps and will really do outstanding cleans when the guit volume is rolled off and of course the mid gain and wide open throttle are legendary.

You learn to really work the guit volume and its incredible all the outstanding tones from this circuit (even Tom Petty has used this amp live)!!

I have most brands of the NOS EL34 (and NOS 6550 tubes i can use too),i even have the holy grail Mullard 12ax7 "10M series" with gold pins for a reference i use normally in V1, makes it a lot of fun!!

Yeah, that's true about the guit volume pot. I use it a lot with my Analogman NKT275 Sunface fuzz and you can get some incredible range of tones with just guitar, amp and nice fuzzface. Add wah and vibe to it and you're in tone heaven :mrgreen:
