Hi Y'all  :wave:

Had a gig last night with the 'Grunge' band (Soundgarden, Audioslave, STP, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, etc..). The amp shined. My cleans were way too loud, I had to pick lightly until I could get near the master volume. It was a good problem to have, usually the gains are overbearing and there is a whisper of clean tones...

I discovered that P90s are FANTASTIC for Drop D tuning. It has a crisp attack and a bit of a honk, like a wah pedal half cocked (insert 'half cocked' joke here)

The amp's a keeper. I keep looking at replacement speakers for the cab, but haven't pulled the trigger because it sounds pretty good...hate to mess with that, but I'm intrigued about the possibility of 'removing the wet blanket' somehow. There is no wet blanket, in fact, if anything, I need to warm up a couple patches. It's punchy and a bit bright when I get on it, but I reckon that's got a lot to do with the cab - the Viper had that punch (in the midrange tho) that cut in a mix

Get this; The 40 watt setting was too hot for running direct out the built-in Redbox. I set it to 20 watts of FURY and it was fine. We have a heavy handed drummer and I had my amp at 12:00 on 20 watts. I was keeping up just fine, so there's that.

Ooooo...He forgot to say he didn't work on PC boards :facepalm:

    I guess if MJMP doesn't believe he can bring it back to life, then it's a lost cause.

Hey Sam, I posted some stuff in your introduce yourself thread (and ages ago I think in the MP-1 Classic threads).  MJMP has come back to say MDRT doesn't work in the Classic  :nono: but he does (according to his site (4 in stock)) have the original 110v transformers which do.  So grab one of those quickly while you can and then you won't have to worry about step up transformers etc.
Cheers Richard

Just how bad is the other one?

I learned what a 'lifted pad' means, how NOT to desolder, etc. I had a friend who said he worked on electronics all the time, turns out, he butchered it, I'd rather not talk about it

Hey Dante,

     Glad you're happy with it, now just don't destroy this one  :nono:

     Just how bad is the other one?

Hey Sam,

     It looks like MJMP has a transformer you need for that. Maybe you guys can work out a deal.

     I don't carry spare parts for ADA gear, but with all the ADA gear I own, I probably should have thought of that.

     Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20

No sorry to say but the MDRT does not work in the classic.

Hey Sam, see my other post about this, you can buy a 110v transformer from MJMP (http://www.marshalljmpmodshop.net/miscellaneous_parts_and_replacement_tubes.htm).  But meantime you could use a step up transformer (117v to 220v) to run it, need to watch out for the power plug configuration, i.e.  the step up transformer needs the correct outlet for whatever power plug your 220v Classic has.  There is no "adapter" to change voltages, you need a step up transformer which takes 117v (US voltage) and converts it to 220v.  Here in Australia we/I use step down transformers 240v to 117v to run US or Japanese units and these have US style power outlets on them. 

Depending where (which country) this Classic you bought is coming from, it will have a plug for that country, they are all different but mostly (for ADA gear) it would be a UK plug, a Euro plug or Australian plug.

Power plug adapters (like the ones you can get for overseas travel) work for gadgets that can work off multiple voltages (e.g. laptop power supplies, electric shavers etc.) but have different plugs.  ADA gear was made before multiple voltage capability was a thing.

Hey Nolan!

 Thank you very much for the help! I’m trying to find your other post, do you know what the thread is called?

With Regards,
Sam

Hey Sam, there are some posts about this from back when I was going to buy a US MP-1 Classic, ended up letting Dante have it.  Now if I remember correctly, you can use the MDRT (which can be wired for 110v or 220v) in a MP-1 Classic. Need to confirm this with MJMP but it was key to me buying it at the time (I needed 240v for Australia).  Checking MJMPs site (http://www.marshalljmpmodshop.net/miscellaneous_parts_and_replacement_tubes.htm), the original 110v and 220v transformers work in MP-1, MB-1 and MP-1 Classic.  Also checking MJMPs site, it seems he has 4 original 110v transformers (for MP-1, MB-1 and MP-1 Classic) in stock. 

So you can get a 110v transformer from MJMP, or you could go with a MDRT (also from MJMP).
