    Been looking for a decent Marshall at a decent price, a 800 . Found this Modded Ceriatone at a smoking deal on TGP so i snagged it up !

    Has the bright cap mod and the LAR/PPIMV mod to tame the volume of the 2203 100w...i run it at 4 and adjust the volume on the back via the PPIMV ...it cooks with a SD-1 boosting it

    Going to tube roll but , it sounds perfect with the Chinese pre amp tubes so.....

    Back to playing but, i like flipping a switch and rocking out. Knobs are very responsive and variety of tones....going back to my roots guitar into amp....well ...you know it never ends that way ! lol

    Nice. I love Ceriatone stuff. I really want to get some of their amps when their shop opens back up. HNAD!

    Thanks !

    V1 Mullard 163

    V2 RFT

    V3 put a balanced Realistic Matsushita gold pin in 7025A

    Took the harshness of the Chineses tubes out, made everything very smooth, chunky and chewy.....really tamed the brightness in a good way that the 800 is known for....i like this combo of pre amp tubes so, going to put the back plate back on....and rock it !

    Leon Todd just put a video up of running the FM3 with his Ceriatone...man he does a great job explaining things...going to try running effects via my FM3 with the 800 next day off

    Hooked up a DL8 in the loop this afternoon...(in buffered mode) didn't really experience any tone suck that i read about with these amps...i change guitars i change settings....shoulder shrug...a little more Presence does wonders
