Original Marshall roar.
To the minds and ears of many, the all-valve 100 Watt Super Lead heads of the mid to late 1960s (â67-'69) with the famed Plexiglas front panel, have been the holy grail of great rock tone. Now, the Handwired 1959HW is a line right back to that celebrated era.
An accurate reissue, the 1959HW has âPlexi' DNA running right through it. It has the classic tonal notes of those early âPlexis' which, being non-master-volume, when cranked overdrive the power valves, producing those sweet, highly responsive, harmonically rich tones, with chest-punching projection. And to make the 1959HW as authentic as possible, Marshall used original thickness, original pitch matrix, point-to-point tag boards.
With the transformers being an integral part of the âPlexi' sound, they also worked closely with Dagnall to duplicate the later-era âPlexi' power transformer. The result is that the 1959HW is the âbest of both worlds' because it takes the best features from early âPlexis' and later âPlexis' to produce a truly awesome reissue.
