I've always been interested in the Marshall Lead 100 Mosfet Head from the 80's. I watched some demos on YouTube this morning, really liked what I heard, and ended up buying one off of Reverb in very good condition from a shop in Pennsylvania.<br /> <br /> Based on the YouTube videos, this is the best sounding solid state amp that Marshall ever made.<br /> <br /> My Marshall 1936 2x12 cab will no longer be headless. And this Marshall head was relatively inexpensive. (:oD

Yes. Those were pretty good SS amps indeed. The made a 2x12 combo version that was a beast!

I had a 90s Mosfet Marshall 100 watt Head that I thought sounded pretty good. It had a single 12AX7 in it. It had a 4x12 cab and was just too big to cart around. It was every bit a Marshall. I sold it to a Dad that was looking to get a big amp for his son for a Heavy Metal band.<br />

Here's a good video demonstrating what this head sounds like through a Marshall 1936 cab.<br /> <br /> ps - The odd thing is a wore my Marshall hat while walking our dog this morning and the Mosfet idea popped into my head.

That's not weird! That's the way it works!<br /> <br /> [Leftee - digs his Dumble hat out]
