Features include 3xECC83s in the preamp stage & 4xEL34s in power amp stage, two channels, I and II which were labelled High Treble and Normal respectively in later renditions of the original 1959 model due to the differences in their voicing, each with two inputs for high sensitivity and low sensitivity. Both channels share tone shaping controls for Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence. Based upon a pre-July 1969 SL/A head, the 1959HW yields all of the sonic characteristics that made the original a rock and roll legend.
To the minds and ears of many, the all-valve 100 Watt Super Lead heads of the mid to late 1960s (‘67–’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 ‘Plexi’ DNA running right through it. It has the classic tonal notes of those early ‘Plexis’ 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 has used original thickness, original pitch matrix, point-to-point tag boards.
With the transformers being an integral part of the ‘Plexi’ sound, they have also worked closely with Dagnall to duplicate the later era ‘Plexi’ power transformer. The result is that the 1959HW is the ‘best of both worlds’ because it takes the best features from early ‘Plexis’ and later ‘Plexis’ to produce a truly awesome re-issue.
"The original ‘Plexi’ sound that launched rock guitar is better than ever – and even louder than we remember." Guitarist Magazine
