Another NAD!! - Non Orange!!

Post by AryaS » Sat May 06, 2017 2:47 am

Can't help but share it here with you guys!!

I am in the process of selling off my Marshall DSL100H, it is just not cutting it for me. Not to mention is super heavy and all that, it is great for some kind of tones, but not what I want, the vintage Plexi style tones, tried a lot for over 6 months, did not work.

The other options I looked at were:-
Ceriatone JTM45 with PPIMV
Victory Sheriff 44
Marshall JTM45 2245
Rockitt Retro 50

Ceriatone was great, good parts, great build quality, but as i know myself, i would end up modding and changing things, and wanted something that sounded great, right out of the box, this was the cheapest option of all.

Victory - Not available in India, no dealers around Andertons does not ship to India, No point buying from their Thai dealer (would end up paying customs twice).

Marshall - most expensive among the lot.

RR50 - Looked at the specs, parts, pictures, sound clips, videos, asked friends for suggestions, and all of them were, go for it!!

This is a mid priced unit, among the ones I mentioned above, and when i spoke to Kevin, he mentioned of this used unit (mint condition) and offered me a discount and assured it will be covered in service and he will personally test drive the unit and test it before it is sent, and this has a PPIMV as well (I was originally planning to get the PPIMV too), so the usual wait of 90 days or more is eliminated, and the below image is of the actul amp that will be sent to me :) It's also a super small cab unit, which i prefer, and was going to ask Kevin to provide as part of my order, so everything in place and no wait :)

I am super excited, and can't wait to get my hands on it. Did I do well?

You did fine. RR's are great amps, Kevin's a great guy. Possibly the best deal for "spot-on" Plexi clones.

Yeah, I am told, mine should be all set by next Wednesday, to be shipped out. Can't wait!!

I looked at so many options, and this just clicked, both tone, quality and price wise.

Cant see the pics again.

Sounds Great! Great old school Marshall tone, classic. Your playing has improved over the last year too, quite a bit. (Wish i could say the same about myself :lol:)

That iceman sounds just like a strat - funny! Great tone there too.
