Vintage overdrive-soaked sounds for the stage and studio.
The Marshall 1974X 18W 1x12 Combo Amp is a handwired reissue of the model 1974, a combo originally produced from 1965 to 1968. Introduced as a practice combo amp in 1965, it wasn't as loud as the terror-inducing heads Marshall was producing, but it could rock, giving up incredible lead and crunch sounds at low volumes. The 1974X combo comes with 2 EL84 tubes in the power amp, 3 ECC83s in the preamp, an EZ81 rectifier tube, and features valve-driven tremolo. A proprietary, aged reissue of the 20W, ceramic magnet Celestion T1221 speaker used in the original adds to the Marshall 1974X's tonal authenticity. Marshall includes a footswitch with your 1974X Combo Amp.

Comments about Marshall 1974X Handwired 18W 1x12 Combo Amp:
I love this amp it is very ear friendly being the sweet spot is about 8 and I rock out in my home my neighbor Harvey can hear me in his driveway so I guess the amp is loud enough I know I can use it in a live room I guess I'm trying to say it's not a loud amp but it's perfect, as for the sound I can't say enough it sounds like all those 70's lp's bad company, ac/dc (my favorite band) Clapton etc., Ive owned a Peavey 50 watt classic and still own a Gibson Goldtone Ga 5 the peavey needs to be LOUD to get that edge and the Ga 5 sounds great at all levels but doesn't compare to the Marshall this amp has the sound I've been looking for I'm very happy ecstatic to say the least I have to tell you I've read some really negative reviews on this amp all the same complaints about the transformers blowing out and not being a reliable or trustworthy. I have not had this problem as of yet and hope for the best. Anyway, this amp kills and can be used for jamming with your band and an excellent recording amp good luck.
