UPDATE 12/27/2020: PRE-ORDER THE NEXT RUN OF HANDWIRED UNITS SHIPPING IN FEBRUARY 2021! Created in collaboration with George Lynch, the Lynch Mod is a custom modified version of the Hot Mod V2. Read more below and welcome to the Lynch Mod!
George tried the original Hot Mod V2 (HMV2) in his Marshall and enjoyed it, so we decided to collaborate and do a custom-voiced version specifically for him. So instead of the HMV2’s two-position Hot Switch for two pre-set gain stages, we’ve added a gain knob that goes from unity gain all the way to scorching hot on the Lynch Mod. And just like the original HMV2, all the clarity and low-noise characteristics have been retained. We also added a Deep switch to help provide a bass boost when desired or when using a guitar that might otherwise be a little thin. With the Deep switch off, low end is tightened and it serves as a slight bass cut for clarity.
The Lynch Mod adds an adjustable 100% pure tube gain stage on top of the cathode follower V2 position, keeping note definition and articulation while further increasing sustain. As with all previous runs of Lynch Mod units, each is meticulously built and wired by hand, point-to-point, and tuned using high-grade materials. Equipped with a pair of JJ ECC83 (12AX7) tubes, the Lynch Mod adds a gain stage to your Marshall that’s been tuned and approved by the ears of the maestro George Lynch himself.
This third run follows up after our limited-edition copper metallic finish of 50 pieces signed personally by George Lynch and the 2nd run of red/black hardware models which sold out in December (unsigned going forward after that first limited 50-piece run). For this third run, George requested a special vintage green hammertone textured finish with white lettering and graphics! We’ll share pics as soon as they are available.
The Lynch Mod (standard wiring option) will work in both Marshall JMP and JCM 800 models 2203/2204/1959/1987 as well as a number of other models. See this page to see the full list of compatibility. The standard wire Lynch Mod will also work in the new Marshall Studio Series SV and SC heads.
If you have a reissue model 1959 SLP, 1959RR, 1987X, or JCM 800 2203x, choose the reissue model Lynch Mod below which has the appropriate reverse-wired cathode follower and tone stack pin configuration to match these reissues.
“Finding that balance between pre vs. power amp gain, sag, sustain, dynamics, and touch-sensitivity in an amp has been a perpetual challenge. To my ears, the Lynch Mod is an impressive one-stop solution that gets you there.”
