SOLD! - 1966/1967 Marshall 18Watt Mini Bluesbreaker model 1974 1x12 Pinstripe



Mentioned in the top 15 most valuable guitar amps of all time and one of the most coveted vintage amps out there!!


In 1965 Marshall introduced the 18W "practice" combo amps. The 18 watt was equipped with a pair of EL84 output tubes and while it does not offer the same amount of clean headroom of larger wattage amplifiers, this particular amplifier was very popular for those wanting the "cranked up tone" at a lower overall volume level. These 18WATTs certainly could "rock"!! 


There were originally 3 combo models: 1958, 1973 and 1974. They had a tremolo and an optional reverb. These amps used two EL84 tubes in the power amp, three ECC83's in the pre amp and an EZ81 rectifier in the power supply. If the reverb was fitted, an ECL86 was used as the reverb drive/recovery tube. These 18W amps were discontinued by the end of 1967.
