The Marshall 1973X Handwired combo amp delivers vintage Marshall tone, build quality and authenticity.

The 18-watt Marshall 1973X is an accurate reissue of the revered 1973 dual-channel, all-tube 2x12" combo amp, produced between 1966 and 1968. Just like the original 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 lower wattage, the Marshall 1973X's power tubes will overdrive sooner than an amp of higher power. This means that the 1973X produces harmonically rich and responsive, vintage Marshall tones 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.

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 Marshall 1973X have been 'aged' to get as close as possible to that vintage '60s mojo.

      Comments about Marshall 1973X Handwired 18-Watt 2X12" Combo Guitar Amplifier:

      One of the best combos ever made and this recreation does the original justice. If you want to sound like Clapton or numerous others you have heard on records. Tube breakup at its finest. Great amp: If you have the cash, pick one up. You will not be disappointed. So much breakup at such a low volume, great amp. Gotta love a great 212 combo. Especially a handwired Marshall 212.

      *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
