Marshall JMP50 ´73
Different from our ’68 “Plexi” it is somewhat more aggressive and punchy but retaining a very good tone rich in nuances and with impressive dynamics which will delight any guitarist, bassist, etc… whatever the instrument chosen.
It is an amplifier made point by point by hand in the year 73 with guitar and bass circuit parts originally in the Marshall factory. The input transformer is changed to a 1970’s 100 watt and the amp is retuned so everything works as it should, including taking into account its sag. A runaway horse with many nuances, sounds and expression in your hands.
You will be able to sound meaty, saturated and by lowering the volume get a very good clean tone. You’ll get round cleans, classic rock overdrive…and very wild and extreme sounds too! If you want an amp that cuts well in the mix this amp is your choice!
Musicians like George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob…), Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne)… have used this same model or a similar one.
And in styles like hard-rock, AOR, 80’s sounds, heavy, thrash, death metal, high voltage rock, blues, funk…
