Tim Caswell Modded Marshall Super Lead Background Info: While working at SIR in Los Angeles during the 1980's, Tim learned the modification techniques done to the amp later rented by Slash (SIR #39) to record the Appetite for Destruction album. The amp was also a favorite of Dokken's George Lynch. That amp has been lost to time, but Tim has performed the same modification to other amps. The mod included an extra preamp tube for additional gain and other mods which gave the amp a much more aggressive tone than a stock Super Lead.
