• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Nice, congratulations.

I’ve owned quite a few 4-hole Marshall’s and want another one. I’ve owned a 1987x, two 1974x’s, a 1973x, a ‘69 Marshall Popular, and the combo versions of your amp, two 1962HW Bluesbreaker’s and a 1962RI Bluesbreaker. JTM’s are some of the best sounding Marshall’s in my opinion. My 1962HW’s were super loud. I never had any luck with attenuators with my amp.

After trying many different OD pedals used to get some good overdrive at reasonable levels, I found that a Greer “Lightspeed” worked the best with the 1962HW. A very transparent low-gain Overdrive that retained my amps great tone and helped with the volume. For higher gain I used a J-Rockett “Dude” OD pedal.

I ran my amps with the channels jumped most of the time but sometimes just into channel 2. You will see that you will still get some channel bleed even with the amp not jumped. Experiment with the Volume controls and jumping channels and not jumping channels.

Congratulations again and enjoy.

Thanks you so much, appreciate it! I’ve been using the Wampler Tumnus and love it, but the TS9 is pretty cool too. Can’t wait to try the channels out!

Had some fun cranking it today and it sounds slammin’! I like channel 1 (straight in) with the volume on 9 and channel 2 at noon. No jumpering.
