OK, one more patch before the weekend. I\'ve been reading in other threads requests for older, more esoteric Marshalls, like the Super Bass, Marshall Major, the JTM 45/100 (the amp Jimi Hendrix played at the event that broke him worldwide - the 1967 Monterrey Pop Festival). All fairly rare beasts nowadays, I got to play thru one of them. The exceedingly scarce 45/100. What struck me about it, was not its gain, but how much like a 10 story high Tweed Bassman it sounded. Like a cross between Godzilla\'s Bassman, and an early low-gain Plexi 100 watt. Lots of fat mids with just a bit of that famous \"fingernails on chalkboard\" Marshall treble grind. So here is my take on the 45/100, as my feeble memory allows (its the second thing to go with age!). Take a good look at what I did with the Tape Distortion in this patch. That signature Marshall treble grind is dialed in with the Low and High bands, and the Mix control. So it has just a bit of juicy breakup in the right frequencies. Play the patch as loud as your situation will allow to get the true feel of playing one of these monsters.
