Excellent amp!!

This amp is excellent. The tones for 60-70s rock are there. I don't mind the fact that it only has a tone knob, I was able to get what I was looking for without issue. Most of my playing was done with a PRS Custom 24 and it sounds great! I don't even have a large cab, just a standard 1x10 cab and it still sounds fantastic. To my ears it sounds like older AC/DC, this is with no effects. I didn't try pedals yet, so I'm not sure how it will handle them. However it is loud even at 2. To use at home get ready.The head is not heavy at all, easy to move around. My only gripe is that the head's feet are not very tall so if your cab had a thick handle this thing will wobble around. Paul Allen has been fantastic in helping me with my gear this winter..and amp, guitars, great service!! Thanks Sweetwater and Paul!!

One of the best amps I've ever owned

I bought my first 2061x around 2011 from a friend. It was quite possibly the best amp I ever owned. I've had 5 Marshalls over the years, including a JCM Silver Jubilee (original Slash) and a mid 70's 100 watt JMP. I enjoyed the 2061x immensely, and played it in church, favoring it over my other 3 amps that included a '63 Reissue Fender Vibroverb that had been modded twice. The one thing that I was a little put off by was the lack of control of treble, bass and mid frequencies. You just get a tone knob for each channel. I ended up selling the amp for $450 more than I paid for it so that I could get a computer to record with. I missed that amp so much that I bought another one, and this time with the cabinet. And this one sounds just as nice as the last one. One thing - this amp isn't a clean amp. It responds well to your playing dynamics, and you can clean up that way. They call it the baby brother of the Marshall Plexi. The distinctive characteristics of your guitar will come out through this amp, and with an older Marshall sound. That's the best part of the amp. It plays well with my effects and with my guitars. It's also really loud, deceptively loud. It breaks up at low volumes, though, so you can experience the Marshall breakup sound of a Plexi at volumes that won't make your ears bleed. I love this amp. It does one thing but it does it so well.
