A versatile, handwired combo that echoes legendary Marshall valve amps from the 60s
Loaded with 2x12" Celestion 1221 Greenback speakers that have been 'aged' for authenticity, this re-issue replicates the original Marshall 1973 guitar amp accurately - and being handwired, you can tell a lot of attention has been placed on build quality. There is even a built-in valve-driven Tremolo on the second channel for that classic 60s vibe.
The 18-Watt 1973X is an accurate re-issue of the revered 1973 dual-channel, all-valve, 2 x 12” combo, produced between 1966 and 1968. Just like the original the 1973X is hand soldered with no negative feedback in its cathode-biased EL84-driven output stage. Its two-channel design is straightforward and effective – just Volume and Tone controls on channel one, and Volume, Tone, Speed and Sensitivity on the Tremolo channel.
Because of its lower Wattage, the 1973X’s power valves will overdrive sooner than an amp of higher power. This means that the 1973X produces harmonically rich and responsive, vintage Marshall tone at volumes that won’t shift your hearing; this is great for the studio, and gives you greater control of your live sound. That said, at full whack it still packs quite a punch.
