Part of the Marshall Vintage Series
The main characteristic that these amps share is their simplicity of operation and superb natural valve tone. Achieving the beautifully organic and vibrant overdrive which is their trademark, and can only be done in one way - crank 'em up! The result is pure, majestic tone uncluttered by unnecessary circuitry. This produces a big, round, warm, sustain, full of classic character. With chord work you get a bark and percussive attack with a natural sounding breakup, which allows each note to ring out in a glorious musical crunch.
Mix two channels together for a totally unique sound
With the Marshall 1987XL, you can mix the two channels together by connecting a short, screened patch lead between the second input of channel one and the first input of channel two. If you then plug your guitar into the first input of channel one, you can mix the different tonal characters of each channel for greater flexibility!
New series effects loop feature
The series effects loop features a true bypass switch that takes the loop completely out of the circuit, thus ensuring that the original tone isn't compromised. The level switch allows you match the loop to either stompboxes or rack units.
Vintage Marshall through and through
As is the case with the 1959SLP, the 1987X has fittings and hardware as true to the originals as humanly possible, thus ensuring that authentic Marshall Vintage look.
