Hand Wired 18 watt Tube Guitar Amplifier
Used! Just in on consignment with Custom Cover!
Used! Just in on consignment from one of our regular clients. The Marshall 1973X is an accurate reissue of the revered 1973 dual-channel, 18 watt all-tube 2x12" guitar amplifier combo, produced between 1966 and 1968. Just like the original vintage amp, the 1973X is hand-soldered, with tube-driven tremolo and 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 low, 18 watt power rating, the Marshall 1973X will overdrive with succulent, power tube saturation sooner than a higher wattage amp. This means that the 1973X produces harmonically rich and responsive, vintage Marshall tones at volumes that won't get you murdered! Perfect for the studio or stage, and gives you greater control of your sound. That said, at full volume, it still packs quite a punch.
The T1221/67 Greenback speakers used in the original 1973 combo would mature over time, their sound softening with age. The special 12" Celestion G12M-20 Greenbacks in the 1973X have been "aged" to get as close as possible to that vintage, '60s tone.
Like all our used/vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get, including the custom Studio Slips amp cover with zippered pocked to hold the footswitch, power cable, and whatever else you need to carry along to the gig. Cosmetically the amp shows little signs of use and is in very good shape. Maybe a ding or a scuff or two, but nothing serious whatsoever. Killer sounding! Fun to play and ready to rock!
