iamqman's review"original and classic!"

Marshall 1959SLP [2002-Current]
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Marshall amplification. Marshall has been the leader in high gain amplification since the 60s. The Marshall plexi came out around 1967 and has to this day been one of the most heavily used high gain amplifiers for touring musicians and recording musicians. This amp is a take on the 1967 to 1969 plexi amplifiers. They look exactly like the old ones who was some new modern features.

One of my very first Marshall amplifiers was a Marshall plexi from the early 70s. That one was an amplifier that I didn't gig with very much because of the old vintage value to it. Now that Marshall is reissuing plexi amplifiers, these are much more commonly used onstage now because of their enduring lasting ability.



4 EL34s in the power stage
3 ECC83s in the preamp
True bypass series FX loop
3-band EQ
Presence control


If you like the tone of the old original amps then you will like these new reissue amplifiers. The tone remains the same with these new amplifiers but you also get an effects loop. This gives you the tone of the old days the new modern technology all-in-one classic looking amplifier. I like the sound of thai amp with Gibson Les Paul. There is something that magically happens with the Gibson Les Paul and

Marshall plexi that has given so much inspiration to musicians around the world. If you want to get the tone from Van Halen, you would use this amp with a super Strat guitar. Using attenuation with this amp and that's super Strat and you will be rocking out to Panama all day long.


These amps come in at new price if around $2350. That is a pretty expensive amp. If you're looking for that classic Marshall plexi sound and don't want to spend $4 or $5000 to get the originals and then this is the best option you have available on today's market. $2300 is an expensive price for single channel amplifier but if you're looking for that classic Marshall plexi tone than this is the price to your going to have to pay to achieve that type of tone.

100 watt all-tube !!

tuning a bit complex because everything happens live on higt gain and therefore passive volume for severe and acute Volume mixing both a wonder !!!

Marshall 1959SLP [2002-Current]
100w amp head with 2-channel preamp stages benefiting from a separate section level. Equalization standard and the presence knob.

At the front, two sets of inserts for bridge / link premps them and change their order.

An effects loop on the rear (installed later) and exit HP That's all Folks, nothing else!

In the tradition vintage, I did not put the note because it would be rolled product by any current standard.


No, strangely, the configuration is not simple. This head is a Swiss Army Knife where you can plug a whole bunch of stuff and get in the end, the results partially innatendus.

The sound here is very fast, but then all other sounds arrive, and sometimes just change the levels to one or the other preamp to see you can not find one this nice crunch left in the same place There's 10 minutes.

Note that without a volume attenuator, it is useless to buy it because you will be greatly handicapped.

Single channel head, can not switch between different modes clean / crunch / ect ... I know, but it was already possible at the time.

We talk a lot of (bad) quality marshall. Personally, no problems during our marriage of 3 years.

(4) do not believe that I will cherish to the end, a head of delicate handling, not settle for the live, volume titanic ... it makes things that are wrong.


No, the marshals do not suit me for my style of music. I am very anti-Marshallian the first time ... but the head emerges something that only a few heads of the Marshall range.

First, clean. There is no "ping" like most amps, by "diiiiinggggschwooooo" has more brilliance and already contains some sort of creamy natural. Terribly effective in the rhythmic style hot. British cleans lovers will love this head I'm sure. Note that the head scans all frequencies sufficient for cartons in all frequencies.

The presence knob adds crunch to the acute when the two potentiometers level, they offer sound possibilities that I invite you to discover.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sound, intermediate crunch already pushed. Here, the head is in his element, precise, sensual (and therefore very hard to play because highly variable depending on the sensitivity of the pick), but can show enough potatoes for old punk styles. The overall sound is thicker, and even if we find the sharp side of marshals, do not chip as it is smoother and rounder.

Sounds thoroughly from the bottom I did not like because there was a slight loss of accuracy with a side "grooooooowwww" that was happening at the foundation.

(8) Overall, a great mind for the types of sounds well-typed and the leg immediately recognizable.


I babysitter three years, playing irregularly but enough to enjoy it. I did not take him on tour because they are too rare and too good for that.

A good head for lovers of good sounds but I would not recommend to use live (although all tastes are in nature). The purchase of a power attenuator is required just add to the budget. The selling price is disadvantageous because the competition also offered very good and sometimes cheaper. This is especially true now with the plethora of stuff created since its release.

(6) instead of a head for true lovers of good sound marshall and collectors, but beware, the beautiful has a sound all its own and it will enjoy it.
