Classic Rock ToneMy favorite bands all played the mid to late `60,s plexiglass panel Marshalls! Clapton/Hendrix/Beck/Page/Gibbons/Blackmore/Alvin Lee/Mick Box/Van Halen and many more. But you can,t get that tone at low volumes with those amps. But, now you can if you hurry, before there gone! Great Tone, comes at a price!

Marshall JTM1-HI got this little head a couple of weeks ago,and I am very impressed.1 Watt is a lot louder than you think it would be.I am playing it through a 4x12 with V30's and it has no problem pushing it.What I am most impressed with is the sound,it has that slightly dark old Marshall sound.They did a great job of capturing the 60's era Marshall tone.It is a little on the expensive side for what it is,but it sounds great,looks great,and you can really get that fully cranked old Marshall tone without disturbing the neighbors..I can;t wait for the 70's JMP and the 80s JCM ones.

JTM-1CI've never owned a Marshall amp with which I was satisfied; partly my own fault/expectations, partly the amps. This one's great. On full 1W power I can get a nice clean/slightly dirty early Who or Creedence, and on the low power .1 W setting I can get Hendrix, Oasis, any kind of Marshall 60s-90s non-metal grind, and it sounds like I think it should, not like some processed idea of what a Marshall should sound like. No, 1 Watt's not going to work in Wembly, but I don't play there; I play in my family room and it's great. The .1 Watt is a bit picky re guitars; lower power pu's don't produce a lot of volume, but hbs, P90s, a tele bridge or strat neck can do wonders, again ala Jimi or Noel. I put in NOS tubes to calm the hiss, and tried other speakers but the stock speaker works best. Very nice.
