Mod ANY Combo Amp into a Head/Cab In ONE! Speaker Out, Amp In, & Speaker Upgrade!

Today we will be modifying my Marshall Master Lead Combo 30(5010) amplifier by adding a speaker output and an amp input for the built-in speaker! This effectively makes it both a head, cabinet, and combo! We will also be upgrading the speaker from a 12 inch, 15 ohm, Celestion G12-30 to a 12 inch, 4 ohm, Peavey Sheffield.
