Introducing the Marshall SV20H. The Studio Vintage head recreates the incredible tone of the Marshall 1959SLP. Featuring vintage Marshall style, inspiring classic tone, and easy transportability, this head is an excellent choice for rockers that love that famous vintage sound, but don't need overwhelming volume.  

Vintage Marshall Style
The aesthetic vibe of this head is made to match its inconceivable vintage sound. It's got that simplistic, classy look, with large Marshall logo on front. The perimeter is surrounded by gold lining and the front control panel is a sleek gold.

Inspiring Classic Tone
The tone from this head perfectly recreates that of the inimitable Marshall 1959SLP. This head has 2 x ECC83 valves, with 1 x ECC83 (phase splitter) and 2 x EL34s. You can choose between four different inputs with high and low sensitivity loudness controls. The Studio Vintage 20W head also features 3-band EQ, presence control, DI output and power reduction to bring it down to 5 watts when you need to stay quiet.

Easy Transportability
Made as a much more manageable version of the classic 1959SLP, there's no limit to where you can take this head. Its scaled down size allows you to bring it to the studio or smaller gigs. There's even a convenient carry handle on top so you can take it wherever you go, without a hassle.

Awesome amp


I have the Marshall 2061x head and the 1973x combo: both beautiful hand-wired tone machines. The Studio Vintage compares extremely well to both of these amps and at half the price. It may like a little of the 3D shimmer/sparkle that the others have but unless you're playing them back to back there really isn't much of a difference. It's still a totally addicting tone plus there's also a wider range of tone available in the Studio Vintage. The amp looks the part too! I think the only thing that lets the amp down a little is the rather cheap looking, plastic jacks that Marshall used on the back of the amp. I'm sure they're perfectly functional but they don't match the rest of the aesthetic aspects of the amp. Overall I'm really happy with this amp and would certainly recommend it to anyone after that quintessential Marshall tone. I didn't get chance to play it through the matching cab but I am running it through the 2061cx 2x12 cab and it sounds fantastic - really ballsy and punchy. Try one, you'll like it!
