JTM 50 Replica

Post by bill bokey » Thu Nov 23, 2017 11:09 am

Hi all !

Here are a few pics of my latest build, a JTM50 Replica.

I used Classic Tone transformers, Synergy coupling caps, ARS and F&T filter caps and a few Allen Bradley resistors.

Looks really good. Nice front and back plexi panels!...I dig the "Made in France By Castle made of Sound" on the back panel.

Beautiful work!

Where do you guys get all these nice ceramic disk capacitors for the tone stack and mixer bypass?

Stunning work. The JTM50 is still my favourite Marshall amp of all time.

BTW - where did you get the oversized "Marshall" 212? Looks killer!

They almost look as good as my builds. Who made the head box? How do those tranys sound, I heard magnetic components sound ok in these builds.

Nice job.
Personally I'm using red ceramic disc Erie caps because I found a stash from my dad's ham radio days when I cleaned mom's garage.
