||Re: marshall clone|
I was actually just kidding around... I guess I should have made that clear. No hostility here.

i seem to prefer the sag in my other amps with tube rectification. besides i have too many octals on the original chassis that are begging to be used. thanks again. rock on

I built my Marshall clone with a tube rectifier socket on chassis...later, I removed the gz-34 and attached 4 diodes (SS) full wave instead of tube rectifier...like Trace, I too prefer the SS sound better in this position...the un-used socket has a piece of tape over it (top of chassis)...IMHO, I don't miss the tube rectifier at all!...Frank.

Ohhh...OK (whew) I was worried that I offended you on some way. We normally see eye to eye on Marshall stuff and that's cool!!!!!!

Here is why he was yanking your chain Trace...
from your post...
Ha ha.. The only thing left would have been a 450v battery... or the word 'tube' after rectifier!

It was their sense of humor....you said skip the rectifier altogether when you meant to say skip the tube. I dont think it was intended to be hostile. Since almost all Marshalls except a JTM45 or very early 50watters use a ss rectifier, using a solid state rectifier makes perfect sense. Personally I like to use a GZ34 cuz its really close to the ss but has just a touch of sag....I wouldnt use it on the 100 watter though.....but on the 50watt it gives the amp just a touch smoother distortion IMHO.
