    i have a marshall MB450h head that has blown two of its resistors past the point of recognition. If anyone would be able to take a picture of R6 and R7 on theirs or tell me which resistors i need to put in as replacements that would be great.

    Good idea to take it to an amp tech, so it can be fully bench tested. Probably a reason why those resistors blew- better safe than sorry.

    Absolutely correct. Resistors failing in a dramatic manner is a certain indicator that something has drawn excessive current through them. Just putting in some new ones won't solve this problem, I bet.

    i am fixing the amp on my own and understand they had too much power. I am currently in the process of remedying the problem. i just want some replacement ones so that when i find the problem i can just throw in the replacements. if you could help me in identifying the resistors that would be great.
