The Marshall Plexi 1959SLP 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head is designed to sound like the 1965 original that set the standard for Rock amps.
The Marshall Plexi 1959SLP 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head is a reissue of the Marshall Super Lead Model 1959 that was first introduced in 1965. This is the amp head that Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix used, and we now recognize it as the one that set the standard for how amplifiers should sound and look in Rock music.
The 1959SLP is designed to sound exactly like the original, the only change being the addition of a true bypass effect loop. The head delivers 100 watts of power, using three ECC83 tubes in the preamp section and four EL34 tubes in the power section, and the tubes are configured in the same way as the original. The Marshall Plexi 1959SLP has an onboard three-band EQ with Bass, Middle, and Treble controls. There is also a Presence knob for even more control over your tone.
This 1959SLP has two input channels, each within its own Loudness control and a High and Low Z input jacks for a total of four input jacks. The input jacks of the two channels can be connected using a short 1/4 inch cable for Channel Jumping, which is really a blending of the two channels (bright and dark) by their respective volume knobs.
