Ooh, there's a nice in-depth review of the 1974X and 2061X amplifiers –– each a part of Marshall's high-end handwired series –– over at Vintage Guitar Magazine's website.

Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel... Marshall's latest entry into the low-powered amp market, the all-tube Class5 Combo, has been available and getting great reviews across the pond for many months, but appears to be only now starting to show up in the States -- I can't wait to get my hands on one. Built to resemble the iconic Mars…

Guitar World Reviews The Hand-Wired Marshall 1974X

Just a quick note: I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been drooling over Marshall's new 100% hand-wired 1974X combo since it was first announced last year, and in fact I've been keeping an eye out for one to test drive in my area, but so far I haven't had any luck (damned cow town... I'll probably need to head over to S.F.) Anyways, this morning…

See The Marshall Vintage Modern & JVM Series In Action

A number of readers have been asking for more information on Marshall's new Vintage Modern and JVM series of amplifiers, so I was pleasantly surprised this morning to find that Marshall has posted some fairly in-depth mpeg demos of these two eagerly-awaited new amp models on their website.

Guitar Player Reviews Marshall's Handwired Super 100JH

Well, it looks like those lucky bastards over at Guitar Player Magazine have finally published their review of Marshall's handwired Super 100JH, and by all accounts she's a beauty. In case you missed my earlier coverage (back in June '06,) the Super 100JH is Marshall's homage/remake of the 100-watt stack that Jimi Hendrix used to carve out his pl…

Marshall's Vintage Modern Series To Ship In January '07

Dream Machine: Marshall's 1974X Reissue

Another Dream Amp From Marshall I've been considering a number of amps recently, and one that's really caught my eye is Marshall's reissue 1974X -- a hand-wired recreation of their classic 18-watt tube amp, the 1974 -- which, ironically enough, was produced during the mid to late '60s. The 1974X is getting phenomenal reviews, and its no wonder w…
