SOLD! - 2014 Marshall 1973X - Handwired 18W 2x12" Tube Combo
The 18 Watt 1973X is an accurate reissue of the classic 1973 (model #, not year...) dual-channel, all-valve 2x12" combo, produced between 1966 and 1968. Just like the original, the 1973X is hand-soldered, with valve-driven tremolo and no negative feedback in its cathode-biased EL84-driven output stage.
It's 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 other amps. This means that the 1973X produces harmonically rich and responsive vintage Marshall tones at low volumes. This is great for the studio, and gives you greater control of your live sound. On the other hand the 2 x 12 Celestion G12M speakers give you tons more OOMPH then it's little brother, the 1974x which has only 1 x 12inch Celestion speaker.
