1996 - Marshall Lead 12
I met up with an old buddy, you know the one I sold all my gear to when I left town.
It turns out I sold him more than I can recall even owning.
After a bit of discussion he was telling me that he still owned my old small Marshall amp.
"you know, the one you modified to add an extension cab"
I scratched my head and couldn't figure out what he was talking about.
A few days later I realised it must have been the "lead 12".
25 watts, solid state, brown face.
Not a bad little amp from memory. Had a certain punk vibe.
I doubt it'd have got me much cash, but I guess I must've needed it. Just like the JCM800 I had, this had the brown grille cloth.
That's my favourite look for the Marshall amps.
None of this black or fancy silver thread for me.
