1965 MARSHALL JTM WITH 105-110 VOLTAGE TAP NO 120 VOLT TAP CAN I RUN IT ON A 120 LINE SAFELY PLEASE READ THANKS !
Hello !!  
 
I recently purchased a 1966 jtm-45/100 which is a 100 version of Marshalls jtm these were the 1st Marshall 100 watt models. The voltage taps in the back say 105-110, 200-210, 220-230 & 240-250. I had Victor Mason from plexi paradise fix up the amp he insisted that I run it at either 105 or 110 he even sold me the variac to use with it, he told me he would not guarentee the reapirs unless I ran it at this voltage, he spefically told me not to run it into a 120 volt line so I have a $ 160 variac he sold me to use with the amp it sounds great and works fine. After posting my previous question on Variacs I am concerned. Well I know you guys know the answer thanks for the help - what would you do if it was your amp ???
