The Marshall 2061X Head: Original versions of this new 20 Watt, all-valve Lead and Bass 20 Head are now highly collectable. The 2061X has two channels — Lead and Bass — both of which boast the same, simple features: two inputs (High and Low Sensitivity) and controls for volume and tone. The 2061X is built with 2 x ECC83s in preamp, 2 x EL84s in power amp and was first made from 1967–1973.
To enhance the user-friendliness of the 2061X, an impedance selector has been added to the rear panel (switch able between 4, 8, 16 Ohms) and both the Mains and H.T. fuses are now accessible via the rear panel. These new features have no tonal impact on the amplifier whatsoever.
Marshall Handwired Amplifiers and Speaker Cabinets
This ongoing series will feature some of the world’s most sought after, vintage, all-tube Marshalls. Other than the limited edition Offset JTM45 Halfstack available in 1999 (only 300 were produced worldwide), this represents the first time Marshall has offered a handwired product in recent years. Like the originals, these new amps share simplicity of operation and rich, natural valve tone.
This new series was created to meet growing public demand, and to pay homage to models that, for many players, represent the ultimate in organic, all-valve guitar tone. Marshall’s primary objective was to achieve maximum authenticity in terms of components, circuitry, construction methods, materials, specifications, aesthetics, signal path, performance, tonal characteristics and feel. All of the original components and materials were used or reproduced, and the original methods of construction employed in the late 1960s were revisited. All transformers - output and power - have been meticulously re-created by Dagnall Electronics, and each amplifier’s handwired tag-board lives up to the slogan, ‘Point-to-Point Perfection’.”
