Picked up this 50 watt ‘70 Marshall Bass head this weekend and a nice used 1936V cab.

The amp is in very good condition and appears original to my limited knowledge. Hopefully it will be going to my amp tech soon.

I have quite a few good speakers stashed away to try in the cab.

Looks brand new. They like all NMV Marshalls are so effing loud. .
I’ll be using an attenuator and sometimes an OD pedal to help control the volume.

It still sounds good at lower volumes with an OD to push it.

The amp is back from my tech and sounds excellent. He gave it a good check up and installed new JJ preamp tubes.

It even sounds good with the stock speakers in the 2017 Marshall 1936V cab that I purchased with the amp.

I do want to try the amp with another cab that I own with two ‘77 Blackback speakers inside.

Beautiful! I don't see the point of a high price for a small amplifier. The big amps are where it's at!

Beautiful. A 1987 Super Bass, and another Magnatone Panoramic head are the only two amps I have left that I want to add to my pack.

That's an awesome and hefty "grab and go" rig you got there. LOL

Tbt I am blown away by how good my two Custom 100's sound even at low volumes with some pedals and/or an attenuator.

Enjoy.

Congratulations! Plug it into a 4x12!!
Got a Scumback M75 and one of the original G12 Vintage Speakers in the Marshall 1936V currently.

A nice Birch plywood cab. I may replace the other stock speaker with another TBD speaker.

I love G12H's, my favorite Celestions ever.
