I was actually just kidding around... I guess I should have made that clear. No hostility here.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

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...

Ha ha.. The only thing left would have been a 450v battery... or the word 'tube' after rectifier!

Trace,  
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.  
PS
