Marshall 6101 30th Anniversary Combo Eminence Lil Texas
This is a demonstration of the Marshall 6101 combo featuring an EL34 power section and the original voicing of the lead channel 3 (not LM). The only modification to this amp was the replacement of the stock speaker with an Eminence Lil Texas – a neodymium based speaker that is voiced for “american blackface amps” but found its way into this amp. While I’m not convinced that other speaker might be better suited to this combo, the tones achieved don’t exactly have me actively looking for a replacement.
GUITAR – Gibson VOS G60 – the Guitar Center version of the 1960 VOS — Burstbucker 2 in the bridge, 1 in the neck.
AMP – Marshall 6101 combo with Eminence Lil Texas 8 ohm speaker
MIC – Sure SM57
I/O – MOTU 896
DAW – Ableton Live 8
Thanks for this demo which exactly answers my current question about whether to replace the old heavy Celestion in my own 6101 with a Lil Texas. I think I will do so, since my back has been giving me problems but I love the amp!
