Marshall Lead and Bass 20...... PURPLE!!!!

Went to a shop - in the beautiful city of Bath, here in England. Was looking at Cornell amps, when I saw this thing for sale......



It's a 1970....Original purple covering and totally clean inside..... do I want it? Yes I do!!! But the finances say "No". Or rather, "Non!!!", if you catch my drift?

Re: Marshall Lead and Bass 20...... PURPLE!!!!

Sounds a but hefty to me - 1k a bit more like it?

Fool that I am (no reference to your excellent axe intended) I bought a marshall 50 bass head for 250 from a friend and used it as a guitar amp for a bit. I then sold it back to the same friend for the same money. Last I heard of it was in a shop with a 850 price on it (about two years ago).

Mind you it wasn't purple....................

Muwahahahahahahahahahaha.......................
Muwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.... ............... :crazy2: :uglystupid2:

I know where these er......"treasures" were to be found........Snark, Snark, :roll:

As neither Brew or I are THAT Big on Litigation Mentioning NO Names at all.............. "I say ! What Rare and Vintage items one has found old chap!" The prices...(sic) ...or maybe that should be "Joke Lists" (?????) make absolutely perfect sense to me now!!! Muwahahahahahaha.....

Bath is a Nice Place.....shame that the Leaches of Musical Society got their hooks into it !

Re: Marshall Lead and Bass 20...... PURPLE!!!!

Alternatively....should the Mood take you?
A quick stroll down a well known London Street whilst singing a lusty chorus or two of "Den Marks, Den Marks, Oh Den Mark's Treat" will also provide One with hours of Glee. In "their" Shop (??????) One will rub shoulders with all manner of Self Opinionated Experts. Well worth a Visit....especially if armed with a Suitable Object Hitting For The Use Off ! :roughup: :roughup: :roughup:

Re: Marshall Lead and Bass 20...... PURPLE!!!!

They are world famous for, shall we say, making grown men cry, the world over ..... on the roof up the rear stairway one can look out the window and see parts ER,... ageing! I've heard they have a network of "gifted craftsmen" making, I mean restoring, I mean putting together, I mean .... never mind ... vintage treasures ... Hight up London sources are wonderful to have

Re: Marshall Lead and Bass 20...... PURPLE!!!!

These "Craftsmen" of which you speak?
Would these be the very same "Craftsmen" that Crashed a Funeral of a reasonably well known Guitarist and thrust a Business Card into His Widow's Hand during the Service?

Oh Surely Not?

Wha' appen Lurid?

I always thought the Tin Bath and Tin Pan R&V people were ok if a bit bullish with their pricing? Funeral story? Please PM, no names, no packdrill.

Honk honk
