    Product Description

    Made in EnglandThe Marshall Plexi 1987XL shares the same front and rear panel features as its 100-Watt big brother, the 1959 SLP, yet retains its own distinct personality.
    Sweet warm singing EL34 sounds are packed into every nook and cranny of this great tone machine. As is the case with the 1959SLP, the 1987X has fittings and hardware as true to the originals as humanly possible, thus ensuring that authentic Marshall Vintage look. The Marshall re-issue models all are faithful reproductions of the originals, which shaped the sound of the electric guitar as we know it. The main characteristic that these amps share is their simplicity of operation and superb natural valve tone. Achieving the beautifully organic and vibrant overdrive which is their trademark, can only be done in one way - crank 'em up! The result is pure, majestic tone uncluttered by unnecessary circuitry. With solos this produces a big, round, warm, sustain, full of classic character. With chord work you get a bark and percussive attack with a natural sounding break up, which allows each note to ring out in a glorious musical crunch.

    FX Loop
    Due to high demand, a sonically transparent effects loop has been added to the 1987X model. This circuitry has been designed to not color the guitar sound, so that your tone remains pure. The bypass switch gives you the option of completely removing this circuitry if desired. The effects loop level selector ensures compatibility with rack processors or floor pedals (stomp boxes).

    A True Classic Monster
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I just wanted to comment on this Marshall head for others considering buying, I'm an older musician that plays guitar & bass, that grew up in the golden years of Rock, Hendrix, etc! I have had a vast assortment of amps & axes & have had a few classics get away but two of my keepers have been this Baby & and an original DSL 100 head! I have this head (one of the first year re-issue without the fx loop) with vintage greenback 4x12 cab. Tone monster is an understatement here! A touch sensitive powerhouse that actually needs No pedals but are always optional but has always taken them with stride in front! What Jim Marshall built & designed here with "Valve" technology is truly Magical! When one is playing this beast, all find themselves just starring at the amp! This beast is almost 15 yrs. old now & still begs to get it on like a heavy weight champion! Amps will come & go, But this one will always rule, seems to have a little of Jim Marshalls soul in it! Get Ya Some!

    Best Marshall ever
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have owned lots of other marshals, fender, sold amp, Bogner etc... But this is the sound I have always wanted that's stuck in my head and on millions of recordings. It is very loud like a lot of people said. I will be buying an attenuator for sure but it's worth it because the sound is awesome. Very distorted but very clear at the same time. Not fizzy or buzzy like most amps. LoDs of clear treble but not harsh. Best amp I have ever played. It nails the dio sound from yrs ago also so many others including Hendrix

    Your general opinion of this product.
    Right out of the box, this tube amp 50W head delivers the sound of Gary Moore through a Gibson Standard Les Paul.

    Simply Outstanding
    Your general opinion of this product.
    Having played through many vintage super leads, this reissue hits all the right notes. There is no tonal difference i can detect. The added loop was the only thing missing from the original. No more. Also the ability to deactivate the loop with the added DB input selection switch allows for easy transition from rack mount to floor pedal effects and noise control. I highly recommend using a dummy load box before the cabinet and a tube screamer in front of the preamp, you will NOT be disappointed. This product has the ability to reduce tonal frustration into non existence, if you don't have one, your missing out...
