    Another work of art.  Fantastic work, Wow awarded.

    That sounds like the amp everybody wants Marshall to make.

    It would look fantastic in a full-width head with more space between the knobs though ;)
    After Marshall released the Mini Jubilee I emailed them to ask if they were going to do the same with the 2203 - they said they had no plans.

    I'm perfectly happy with my Helix now - but I'd have a 20W 2203, without a doubt.

    Hello darkness my old friend.

    Actually I made another head at the same time - full width in the same style - just toying what to put in - porbably a standard 2204 circuit I think. Although I haven't made a Hiwatt head yet ... or and AC30/badcat style head sounds tempting too.

    Very elegant, I hope it sounds as good as it looks :)

    Jalapeño?  First in a line of Mexican-food-related amps? :)
    We might need to have a chat about the name ........ :/
    Imagine something sharp and witty here ......

    Aw man that looks sweet, how much gain are we talking (I know I've asked you the same question about another amp..) because I've a nasty suspicion that could be the amp I've been waiting for...

    I may be the wrong man to ask as I rarely use a lot of overdrive. I'd be tempted to say lots though! It's a hot-rodded JCM800 at heart, so plenty of preamp gain, plus switching in the boost removes the tonestack which is a major step up in gain and volume again. Dialled back it does the classic marshall crunch too though, and a great clean.

    Yep, sounds suspiciously like you've just built 'my amp'

    Likewise :) I can see myself asking for something like this to be built as and when i have the money!

    That really is a thing of beauty. I wouldn't know whether to play through it or just look at it all day :)

    If I didn't have to MOT, service and replace all 4 brake pads and brakes I would seriously consider taking this.

    Beautiful work! It seems a shame to hide it away inside a box. Although I suppose the danger of death by electrocution is best avoided...   :)
