And again, I have to confess to being totally gutted that I have to sell this. It’s a stunning, vintage Marshall 100-Watt head, the first with master volume and boy does it shout! This amp produces a classic tone and has a bass response that you just don’t find on modern amps. If it's that vintage eighties sound you're after, then look no further. This is a real vintage eighties amp!
The amp has been regularly serviced by me. Apart from other stuff, I’m a musical instruments service engineer and I just love valve amps. I maintain a spreadsheet and all of my amps have their valves changed regularly. I always buy my valves from Derek at Watford Valves, who I’ve known for decades and he always gives me the best matched quads.
Nothing special, I used these 2 x 15” monitors for drums, specifically for the electronic part of the kit and they did exactly what I wanted them to do. Personally, I’m not convinced about the 700W rating or the 20Hz – 20kHz frequency response but they did sound tight and punchy with lots of clarity up top.
Please note that I also have a couple of big QSC amps for sale, one of which I used to drive these.

In my opinion, the JCM900 4000 series of amps were the last real Marshalls. This combo is NOT a reissue but an original nineties amp. It has the sweeter sounding 50-Watt power section and of course the open-back cab makes for a ‘lighter’ sound. If I wanted something a little heavier, I fed this into a THD 4 x 12 cab which is also for sale at the moment.
Accompanying the amp will be the original foot-switch and plastic Marshall cover.
In superb condition, these amps were used in a static installation and were locked away in an air-conditioned cupboard.
When it comes to power amps, you have to take QSC seriously. I’ve used a lot of these amps over the years and the RMX series is the best!
With loads of dip switches on the back, the amps can be configured to properly operate in various situations. Rated at 750 (real) Watts into 4 Ohms, the RMX 2450 just delivers. Solid, reliable and full-bodied.
What a totally cool bit of kit! The K & M rack trolley is just so incredibly useful. Amongst the pictures, is one showing the rack trolley holding one of my Alesis HD24 disk recorders and a Yamaha 01V96, (both of which are available separately and NOT included in the sale of this rack trolley). I also had some outboard gear in with this lot.
The 24” screen was linked up to a small computer which was used to set up the desk via Yamaha software and also control it remotely, if necessary.
I’ve had a lot of König & Meyer stuff over the years. Their gear is very heavy duty, always looks stylish and cool and does what it’s supposed to do, always, really well.

I’ve only ever used RME sound cards. Why? Because I want the best. It’s that simple. This card has four ADAT ports, S/P DIF and AES/EBU to give you 68 channels in and 68 channels out. It also has two MIDI ports.
In perfect condition, another brilliant piece of kit which just lets you focus on the job in hand.
Wow, this package of a single handheld transmitter and four receivers made putting my four big video cameras into record, a breeze. Press one button and all four cameras start recording. Press one button again and all cameras stop recording.
In pristine condition, this package also includes LANC cables.
PRICE: £90.00 plus £10.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
In stunning condition, this is a great example of the massive Marshall VB-400 amp and corresponding cabs. This is LOUD! The system produces a very phase-coherent (tight) sound and is just BIG!!!!
I bought this rig off eBay but when I drove up to Sheffield to pick it up, I was shocked to discover the identity of the seller, suffice to say that he's got err... something to do with the British rock band Saxon!
