Default Marshall Excitement - 04-18-2008, 09:46 PM

ooooh i'm excited, i got a good deal :-D Marshall JCM2000 DSL 401 40W 1X12 combo, swapped my peavey windsor, and homebrew cabinet for it, only thing that sucked was shipping, i will not be shipping a guitar cabinet anytime in the near future again, if ever lol $110 for shipping the cabinet alone which only weighed 52 Lbs :-\ the head cost $33 to ship @ 50 Lbs but i can't wait, i played a marshall DSL50 in chicago a week or so ago and fell in love with it, best amp marshall has made since the mid 80's lol, so i'm hoping the DSL401 sound comparable..... now to get an orange rockerverb and i'll be in amp heaven :-D....


stuff it....... then bake it.......

Damn that's high shipping.. what shipping carrier did you use? Fedex is cheapest when it comes to heavey stuff... like a 2x12 homebrew loaded speaker cab.

I just checked Fedex and 33x18x18 box @ 52ibs is $32.19 to ship.

Ouch UPS is the most expensive out of any carrier. Fedex and DHL are the way to go for cabinets... trust me, I learned that the hard way as well.

Yeah, the extra 10" inches throw it into the oversize bracket. That jumped fedex's price from $32.19 to $50.10.

Watch the heat on the 401. Those things are notorious overheaters.

Nope, you can drop it off at that motel between Meijers and Walmart... or they'll come to your home to pick it up for like $6.

Is that loaded with Celestion? And what tubes are in it? Did you keep those EL34 JJ blue?

stock speaker which is a celestion, and stock tubes, which are groove tubes, no i didn't keep the JJ's, the marshall uses EL84s, and those JJ's were E34Ls... not sure where you get blue from :-P they was red..... but i do plan to re-tube it in JJ's

Blue glass envelope – otherwise no difference from the standard JJ E34L. With a slightly higher grid voltage (-13.5 to -16.5 vs -10 to -13.5 volts for the EL34) than other EL34 / these tube offers tight low end with smooth mids.
