    Clark JTM 45

    Sorting through my photos I came across these that I would like to share. Mike Clark is a master. I believe he does some of the cleanest wiring out there. The second amp is his 5E7 Bandmaster replica, the Tyger.

    I see that your amp also uses the KT66 poweramp tubes. I think those sound better than the 5881's that's in the Marshall reissue of the JTM 45.

    NIK or whomever does his wiring is 2nd to none, and his amps sound great as well.

    Well I've been trying to find the one who assembled and wired this amp. No luck.

    If your directing that at me I never have tried anything else. I only use this amp on occasion as I am mainly a Fender amp guy. My grab and go amp has been a Carr Rambler for several years. Feel I must have at least one Marshall type amp in the herd, though, so I've held onto this one. It's a great sounding amp.

    I see If it sounds as good as my Ceriatone, you are right about holding on to it!

    I have 2 Clarks.

    A 5F1 Lil Bit.

    With a p90 Les Paul.

    It sounds like dirty blonde twin sisters.

    That own a chain of liquor stores.

    I also have a 5E3 Beaufort Special.

    It sounds like a 20 year old Raquel Welch.

    Runnin' round.

    With no panty's on.

    My other amplificadores.

    Even my 2204.

    Are dust collectors.

    Catfish frying and bbq out back.

    Cigarette's, whiskey, and beer.

    And feel the crunch of peanut shells.

    Under my foot.


    Well done senor.

    I used his power transformer iron in my 5E3 build, replacing a Classictone. I never got that amp to sound right with a true PT clone. The voltage correction Clark PT made a huge difference with the feel and tone in my 5E3. He might have been one of the first to figure out Tweed clones need PT voltage correction. It sure beats lugging a variac around.

    The gold Jensen caps look cool, but are probably a bit overkill.
