SOLD - Marshall 1974X Handwired Combo Amp 18w – UK 2004

by Marshall

$2,295.00 20228


The Marshall 1974X is a hand wired reissue of the classic, late '60s guitar amp. The original versions of this 18 watt amp (made from 1966-1968) are now extremely rare, highly sought after, and rather expensive. This newer, all-valve combo (3 x ECC83s in preamp, 1 x EZ81 rectifier, 2 x EL84s in power amp) features two channels with a valve-driven tremolo circuit on channel 2.

Each channel offers two inputs plus volume and tone controls. Channel 2 also has speed and depth controls for the tremolo. A contributing sonic factor in the original 1974 is the way the sound of the Celestion Greenback speaker softens with age. For the 1974X, Celestion revisited the recipe for the original 20 Watt, ceramic magnet, 15 Ohm, Greenback T1221 speaker, and 'aged' it. The result is a new speaker proprietary to Marshall that yields all of the sonic characteristics of the original.
