Crank it up to 10 and let this amp sing. Modeled after the well-known Marshall Super Lead 100 and the Marshall Super Bass 100, this amp offers as much gain as it does tone. Bridge the channels like you would an original and get the clarity and gain of the first channel, and beef it up with the warmth of the second channel. This kit includes 4 JJ EL34 tubes and 3 12AX7 preamp tubes that bring this Class A/B amp into a realm of its own. The amp kit includes the parts to build either the Lead circuit or Bass circuit.
Circuit/Model: 1966-1981 100 Watt Super Lead (1959 MKI) and 1966-1981 100 Watt Super Bass (1992 MKI) Class Type: A/B All Tube Amplifier Output: ~100 Watts Bias Type: Fixed Bias with an adjustable bias potentiometer Build Time: 7 hours Difficulty: 4 out of 5

Maker of Loud Noises I purchased this amp earlier this year. I put the completed amp up side by side with my vintage 1970 100 Watt Marshall Superlead and there is almost no difference in the quality of tone. It is the same beast. Side by side anybody should be happy with this if they are looking at reproducing a clone of the original. I am very happy with my purchase.
Do not however buy this if you do not have prior experience building amps or the ability to do some research to understand the process. I am a relative novice at this and instead of the 7 hour build time advertised, it took me 47 hours. It was a great learning experience and I plan on buying more kits in the future.
