1987X

Online

Though the 50 Watt 1987X shares the same front and rear panel features as its big brother, the 1959SLP, it does have its own distinct personality. Sweet, warm, singing sounds are the trademark 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, to ensure an authentic Marshall 'vintage' look, plus the addition of a switchable Series Effects Loop with a true bypass.

Specs:
Output - 50 Watts
EQ - 3 Band EQ
Pre-Amp Valves - 3x ECC83
Power Amp Valves - 2x EL34
Series FX Loop
Dimensions (mm) - 660x260x205
Weight (kg) - 15.3

I can't say enough good things about this amp! I rented one 6 years ago and only now did I realize that nothing would sound that good. I recommend this for anyone who loves tone! I played Rock My Plimsoul of the Jeff Beck Groups first album and it sounds like the record! GET IT NOW!

Ferocious, and extremely loud! Can be played at low volumes using an Overdrive or Distortion pedal. Amazing tone, haven't tried the 100WATT version but it is likely not needed. Greenbacks (1960AX or TV). Led, Jimi, AC/DC no prob. No amp I've played compares. REVERB SUCKS!!! Made me a better player because it forces me to play due to the unbelievable tone...completely addicting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fR3Os80p0u4
