So I was browsing Craigslist and saw this. For the price, I just couldn't say no.

Nice score. The condition looks to be excellent.

Yeah Its basically mint. No footswitch unfortunately but I'm going to try and find a generic one, the Marshall branded ones seem overpriced.

Haven't had too much time to play it but so far I'm really liking it. I Think there are a lot of great tones to be had from this amp.

Yeah I'm just a bedroom player so 5 Watts is plenty for me. So far I'm liking the 1 watt mode as well. It doesn't seem to sacrifice tone like some of them do. My class 5 really loses a lot of tone when Plugged into the headphone jack.

I like to run it with all on 7... it gives great afd tones lie that... but is a tad too loud for me to play it home though...
Otherwise with higher trebble and presence it does good jcm800 tones too

You can also get nice crunch tones with lower gain settings...

Hey Steve,

Nice amp; perusing craigslist can be an expensive, but sometimes very rewarding experience. This looks like a great craigslist buy.

I recently purchased a two button Amplified Parts generic Marshall replacement footswitch that seems great so far, from Amazon, for around $20 delivered. They had some single button models, as well. Here's a link to the Marshall footswitch search on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss ... footswitch

Good luck and enjoy that amp. Me? I'm going to be searching craigslist...!

Thanks Billy, Yeah I was looking online and saw some on amplifiedparts.com but they wanted more for the shipping than the footswitch costs, So I was hoping to find one online in Canada. But I did check amazon.com and the shipping is a bit more reasonable so if I can't find one in Canada ill get it from there (amazon.ca doesn't sell them)
