1979 Marshall JMP Master Lead 2203 100w MKII Metropoulos mods Plexi tube head

This JMP is now a late 60s SuperLead Plexi, and the low mids have such an iron sound.
It also now has an effects loop and Post Phase Inverter-MV.
It’s basically a ’68-’69 plexi with an effect loop and PPI-MV.
This IS the sound of that era. It's not very forgiving and requires skills.

The JMP has original Drake transformers and filter caps, 50uf/50uf.

What was replaced:
The board and schematic for a ’68-’69 Marshall Plexi - from George @ Metropoulos Amps - http://www.metropoulos.net
The capacitors on the Metro board - SoZo - http://www.sozocapacitors.com
Effect loop and all wiring done by amp guru, Kevin Nelson.

Here's basically what it is, a Metro 12,000 series plexi:
