music, guitars & other obsessions

NAD: Marshall 5212

Picked one up yesterday, it’s an old solid-state model ca. mid-80’s – one of the JCM800 models, since I have not played an actual tube version of the JCM800, I don’t know if the SS version even comes close to the sound that it produces. Anyway, to my ears, it sounds better than the current SS amps that Marshall are selling – doesn’t hurt the amp is loaded with two Celestion G12M-70’s.
