OLDER MARSHALLS USE A VARIAC OR NOT USE VARIAC THAT IS THE QUESTION ???
Greetings Amp gods !!  
I have heard so much conflicting information. One professional viamatly opposes vatiacs for older marshalls and some say they are imperative. I have also heard that if they must run at 220-240 volts they run properly but if they are run at 110 or 120 they do not run to there true potential for that matter -- still others tell me this is bullshit - please does anyone know the truth to this mysterious question ???? HELP !!
