    marshall 1959HW 100 watt head

    It a Ok amp nothing like any of the early models jmp or even jcm 800's.
    what I mean is the volume has been neutered its really smooth more tolerable at lower levels sound more like a fender with fuller sound. I did not like it so I hade all the capacitors changed to sozo hand wound and the tone stack side to carbon comp resistors it was and improvement but still not there. I spent the money and put nos mustard capacitors it just like the vintage marshall have and now we are starting to get somewhere. I also put the 330uf electrolytic capacitor.The amp has very beautiful clean tone and crunch saturates around 6.5 on volume. I had to remove the .68 capacitor on v2 to much gain and lesson the clean tone. Try it before you buy because you will probly have to mod it to get the vintage tone that your looking for. I prefer a clean amp and pedals for overdrive but that's just me. I picked mine up used so I could afford to do a little upgrades on it.
