1959HW

Online

To the minds and ears of many, the all-valve 100 Watt Super Lead heads of the mid to late 1960s (67-69) with the famed Plexiglas front panel, have been the holy grail of great rock tone. Now, the Handwired 1959HW is a line right back to that celebrated era.

An accurate reissue, the 1959HW has 'Plexi' DNA running right through it. It has the classic tonal notes of those early Plexi which, being non-master-volume, when cranked overdrive the power valves, produces those sweet, highly responsive, harmonically rich tones, with chest-punching projection. And to make the 1959HW as authentic as possible, its design incorporates original thickness, original pitch matrix, and point-to-point tag boards.

With the transformers being an integral part of the 'Plexi' sound, Marshall has also worked closely with Dagnall to duplicate the later era Plexi power transformer. The result is that the 1959HW is the best of both worlds because it takes the best features from early Plexi and later Plexi to produce a truly awesome re-issue. "The original 'Plexi' sound that launched rock guitar is better than ever and even louder than we remember." Guitarist Magazine
