1967 !! Pinstripe !! Near MINT Marshall Popular 1930 2x10 10W combo
***** This is a very rare amplifier indeed *****
Have you ever seen a Marshall Popular combo in original Pinstripe?? Well, we have... ;-)
This must be one of the very first Marshall Popular circuits in existence, with 2 x AEG ECL86 power tubes, 1 x 12AX7 preamp and pinstripe grillcloth. The caps and speakers date to the final quarter of 1967.
It is extremely rare to find an unmodded version of the Popular, as they are often modified to a 'Mini Bluesbreaker' 18WATT amp. The chassis is the same, only needs some tweaking and a few extra tubes.
The original transformers just sound amazing. Marshall Plexi sound all the way, but without the ear-drum ripping volume. The circuit board, electronics, caps, pots, transformers, speakers etc are all pretty much original and the condition of the amp is very very good.
The rarity of this amplifier, and the beautiful pinstripe, make this a real collectors amp!
