"The stylin', profilin,' limousine ridin', jet flyin', kiss stealin', wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun!
Friends, how do I keep doing this? How in the world can I make a correlation between a Marshall head and the 16-time World Wrestling Champion, Ric Flair? Simple really- because like Ric said on many occasions, "To be the man, you gotta beat the man." Let me ask you, who can honestly say that any of these wanna be amp makers do it better than Jim did it? Like Flair, Jim Marshall has had the Championship Belt since he came onto the scene, period.
I've heard it said before, "It's better to fail in originality than succeed in imitation." Yeah, just like that movie I seen as a teenager, "The Thing"- same premise, same result. Alien lifeforms would assimilate and to what avail? Oh, I know- to have R.J. MacReady (aka Kurt Russell) drink a bottle of whiskey while the science research station burned to the ground.
Jim may have left the building, but his body of work lives on every time you hear Hendrix, Zeppelin or for that matter, just about everyone that was anyone on vinyl. The Super Bass and bass model Marshalls in general have a fatter clean tone and smoother overdrive. Hendrix preferred Super Bass heads and I'm fairly certain Malcolm Young of AC/DC used one along with Paul Kossoff of Free because it was Alright Now...
Baby boy, if you're looking to nail that tone you're oh-so-familiar with, then you won't be able to get that authentic tone without this and please put down the modeling amps because this head is essentialy a Plexi. Man to boy ideology here people. Clint Eastwood pulled out a Model 29 44 Magnum, didn't he? Of course he did and so shall you.
Boys that have dreams grow up to be men with vision. People, have vision and it all begins with removing Excalibur from the Blarney stone and that's how you become the King. I know you may think that amps like this are old technology and maybe dated, but like Slick Ric Said:
"Space Mountain might be the oldest ride, but it has the longest line." Whooo!
