  • Marshall Major is officially retired.

    It will stay as a collector's item, but its days of use are over. Still works pretty well, but it needs re-tubing and biasing along with other maintenance. Thing is that an entire amp can be (and in fact was) purchased for less $$ than that needed.

    It has served me well. Purchased for $300 back in 1978, it roared onstage a couple hundred times. And in recent years it did great as a keyboard amp. I'll keep it clean, and who knows? Maybe even rejuvenate at some future date. But now, an SWR 4004 takes its place for keyboards.... and it becomes a showpiece.
