Plug into an icon. With 50 watts of power delivering that classic "Plexi" tone, the Marshall 1987X head is a faithful reproduction of the original 1959SLP.
Though the 50-watt 1987X shares the same front and rear panel features as its big brother, the 1959 SLP, it does have its own distinct personality. Sweet warm singing sounds are packed into every nook and cranny of this great tone machine. As is the case with the 1959SLP, the 1987X has fittings and hardware as true to the originals as humanly possible, thus ensuring that authentic Marshall "Vintage" look.
The 1987X delivers the perfect balance of classic Marshall overdrive and glistening clean tones. The later models, including this one made in 2003, include an additional FX loop that gives a modern twist to the amp.
The Marshall re-issue models all are faithful reproductions of the originals, which shaped the sound of the electric guitar. The main characteristic that these amps share is their simplicity of operation and superb natural valve tone. Achieving the beautifully organic and vibrant overdrive, which is their trademark, can only be done in one way - crank 'em up! The result is pure, majestic tone uncluttered by unnecessary circuitry. With solos this produces a big, round, warm, sustain, full of classic character. With chord work you get a bark and percussive attack with a natural sounding break up, which allows each note to ring out in a glorious musical crunch.
This head is LIGHTLY used, I mean it's been babied. It'll ship lightning fast upon purchase.
