Up for sale is a newly built Popp 100 watt JTM45/100 Marshall clone amplifier. I built this amplifier as a replica of the 1966 Marshall Super 100 Amplifier serial number 7026 that Jimi Hendrix used at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, an amp well documented by Rich Dickinson. It is not an exact replica because I used some modern parts for reliability including PTFE wire, and stainless steel hardware with Nyloc nuts.
The tone of the amplifier is legendary as expected due to the parts used in the build. I incorporated both new and N.O.S. parts, using N.O.S. in as many places as possible. Notice the Mullard Mustard capacitors and Piher resistors populate the entire circuit board. It has tons of power on tap and accepts pedals well. I spent many hours building and perfecting this amp. The self-noise is very low which can be hard to accomplish when incorporating N.O.S. parts. Many substitutions were made during the build to eliminate pops, buzzes, and hum. The amp varies from the original circuit as I have utilized improved “Larry” grounding.
The result is a great sounding, reliable 100 Watt Marshall clone that you don’t have to be afraid to take to gigs.
I will also include a replica Marshall block logo. It has a few scuffs on the back but looks great when mounted.
The amp has been burned in for 24 hours to assure no problems.
***Please note: this is not a Marshall brand amplifier, but a well built clone.***
