Marshall 1987x – 5 Things You Asked Us To Try [Y-Cable, Low Inputs, Cranked, Boost & Wet-Dry JTM45]

Published 09 Dec 2022

Our wonderful viewers asked us some stuff after the last Marshall video… so let’s do this!

Welcome to the show! A few weeks back we made a video comparing two classic ‘small-box’ Marshalls, the JTM45 and 1987x. Following that video we had a bunch of common questions and themes crop up in the comments… that we’re addressing in this video. You can enjoy…

0:00 Intro playing
0:47 What are we doing today?
1:32 Try a Y-Cable To Both Channels
8:50 What About The Low Inputs?
12:00 Jump The Channels The Other Way?
14:18 Crank The High Treble Only
26:28 Try A Treble Booster
31:10 Wet-Dry With The JTM45

Q: You uploaded this video once already – what gives?
A: Yes, this is a re-upload. We had an issue with a caption which was causing some confusion. So we deleted the captions - everything else is exactly the same as it was. We had some extraneous noise, some of which made it to the recorded audio, some of which didn't. C'est la vie!

Enjoy the show!
