The ’60s Marshalls were famous for their full sound with a well rounded bass which is balanced by a bright airy treble. They were also designed for a wide range of guitar output levels, so were quite easy to overdrive at high volumes. The 50th Anniversary JTM1H amp head has been designed to provide distinctive tonal character at the surprisingly loud level of 1 watt.
The simple control layout of Loudness and Tone enables you to dial in a great sound with the minimum of fuss. To add further to the ‘home friendly’ nature of the Marshall JTM10H amp head, whenever the full 1-Watt output proves too loud you can hit the Low Power button on the rear panel to further drop the wattage to 0.1 watt, enabling you to crank the loudness control to get the tone you desire.
The dual-triode ECC82 in the power amp is configured to work in ‘push pull’, just like the famous Marshall amps of the 1960s. When combined with the right level of feedback in the power amp, this allows for fine control over the dynamics, allowing you to clean up the sound with the guitar volume, or a lighter, picking touch, and then ‘dig in’ for some classic ’60s Marshall growl.
The Marshall JTM1H amplifier head can drive an external speaker cabinet of either 16 or 8 ohms at full power via the corresponding speaker output jacks on the rear panel. The 50th Anniversary JTM1H amp head is also very capable of driving a full 4x12 inch cabinet for the ultimate in mini Marshall tone of the ’60s.
