  • Celestion Greenback speakers
Classic blues and rock tones

If you desire the classic blues and rock tones from yesteryear, then you'll love the Marshall 1958X tube amplifier combo. This is the guitar tone that shaped the sound of '60s blues and rock, from sweet and smooth clean tones to overdriven, growling dirt. Re-created in all its point-to-point handwired goodness, the 1958X is sure to be the center of your guitar rig. And if you need to push the 1958X to the limit, just put your favorite gain boost pedal in front of it and listen to your guitar sing.

Handwired vintage reissue

Part of Marshall's Handwired series, the 1958X combo amp is an exact re-creation of the legendary amp from the '60s. The 1958X packs three ECC83 preamp tubes and a pair of EL84 power tubes for incredible tonal prowess. You also get an EZ81 tube rectifier, which is responsible for the Marshall 1958X's smooth, singing quality.

Celestion Greenback speakers

Marshall loaded the 1958X with a pair of 10" Celestion G10-F15 Greenback speakers for their unquestionable vintage tone. Think rich midrange and a warm low-frequency response that's neither too tight or too loose, as well as a gentle high-frequency roll-off that sounds right whether you're playing clean or full-bore. You'll instantly recognize the classic sound when you hear it, and it's the perfect foundation for rock and blues guitar.

Marshall 1958X 2 x 10" Tube Amplifier Combo Features:
  • Accurate reissue of the legendary 1962 amplifier, a '60s rock legend

Inspiring Amp

I recently picked up one of these on clearance sale (it was also the demo model, so it was marked down to about 1/3 of the MSRP). I have always wanted a Marshall blues breaker, and I was immediately grabbed by the vintage appearance of the amp. I plugged in with a Les Paul and fell in love with the classic 60's Duane Allman/Eric Clapton tone. I have had the amp for about a week now and I still love it. Its easily the most dynamic amp I've ever played through, with a range of crunch available based on my pick attack. The amps clean tone is great -- crisp through my start, and warm through my Les paul. Turning the volume up about half way yields a serious little wing tone using single coils, and is in perfect british blues territory with hum buckers. When the amp is turned up to 10 (which I have only done once for fear of the neighbors calling the police), the distortion and compression sound like a classic 60's marshall (JTM 45/bluesbreaker). There are only two downsides of this amp--the lack of headroom and the price. I sometimes play gigs where the guitar amp is not micd. although I have yet to gig with this amp, I'm not sure if its clean tones are loud enough to compete with a live drummer. The other downside is that this amp is hella expensive. I am very happy with the amp for the price I paid, however, I would not pay $ for it. If money isn't an issue, or if you can get a good deal, I would 100% recommend this amp.
Music background: 11 years guitar playing, very occasional studio musician, play gigs about once or twice per month

Incredible Amp!!!!

Unfortunately these new Marshall remakes cannot sound exactly as they did in the 60's because parts are made differently now but I have played mine side by side to a 1966 Marshall 1958 and I honestly feel mine sounds better and has way better tonal varieties! Marshall really put their heart and soul into the creation of this amp! I have several High End Boutique amps and for now, this one eats them all!
