I built a thing
Jack >> 100k pot >> jack
Goes in the effects loop, behaves like a volume pedal
Works a proper treat

Thread resurrection..
Ordered myself a Weber Mass III. Will be putting my el84 Plexi clone through some savage power tube grind.
Will report back with results.

I've got a combo plexi (jmp50) running 1x 16ohm speaker. What's gonna happen here?

Who knows this might be one of you guys had it for sale. Better go push some funds through now I've gone done it.


My understanding is you can use higher impedance units with lower impedance amps (still not ideal however), but not vice versa.. You really needed the blue Hotplate.


Correct! You shouldn't use the green hotplate with a Marshall, and will run the risk of damaging the amp if you do.

The green hotplate is actually the rarest one. Pretty much the only amps that run at 2.7ohms are 3x10 Fenders (Vibro-Kings/Bandmasters etc) and their derivatives.
