I just got a JTM 45 reproduction amp. Don't really know a ton about them. Is a JTM 45 combo amp the same as the BluesBreaker? What do you know about the JTM 45 combo?

Marshall JTM 45, "BluesBreaker" Amp.
The Bluesbreaker is based on the JTM 45, which was based on the Fender Bassman, but made with parts available in England at the time. It was the first amp made by Marshall in the early 60's The JTM45 was a head that needed a speaker cabinet. The Blues Breaker was a combo amp. It also had vibrato, I don't think the head ever did. Appearently Eric Clapton asked Marshall to make a small amp that was powerful enough to play large shows but still fit in his car. They basicaly put a JTM 45 in a cabinet with 4 10 inch speakers. It got it's name because he used it with John Mayall's BluesBreakers.
