Original Marshall roar.
To the minds and ears of many, the all-valve 100 Watt Super Lead heads of the mid to late 1960s (˜67-'69) with the famed Plexiglas front panel, have been the holy grail of great rock tone. Now, the Handwired 1959HW is a line right back to that celebrated era.
An accurate reissue, the 1959HW has ˜Plexi' DNA running right through it. It has the classic tonal notes of those early ˜Plexis' which, being non-master-volume, when cranked overdrive the power valves, producing those sweet, highly responsive, harmonically rich tones, with chest-punching projection. And to make the 1959HW as authentic as possible, Marshall used original thickness, original pitch matrix, point-to-point tag boards.
With the transformers being an integral part of the ˜Plexi' sound, they also worked closely with Dagnall to duplicate the later-era ˜Plexi' power transformer. The result is that the 1959HW is the ˜best of both worlds' because it takes the best features from early ˜Plexis' and later ˜Plexis' to produce a truly awesome reissue.
