Marshall 1959 HW

Full-tube amp head

Whether it's alongside Jimi Hendrix or many other guitar heroes, this amp was and is constantly found as a companion - the "1959" is arguably the Marshall amp with the most eventful history, with the most reissues and special series, that has ever existed in the history of the Brits. And since 2004, there has been (parallel to the 1959SLP from the New Vintage series) yet another edition. The 1959HW is a very special treat, because it is completely hand-wired using the exact same manufacturing techniques to produce Jimi Hendrix's stage amps (at that time still in Jim Marshall's first factory in Hayes).

We will waste no more words on the sound qualities of this amp - that would be superfluous.

What it is supposed to be - rock machine!
rnemchev, 29.07.2013
The sound is the same I expected to hear - classic rock sound! Takes effects perfectly.

DAS SOUND-GERÄT
bergerlein, 11.05.2020
Die ganze "cremige, sahnige und perlige" Sülze spare ich mir einfach, denn dieses Gerät sülzt nicht. Dieses Gerät
prügelt und zwar so gemein und so abartig laut daß einem
Hören und Sehen vergeht. Vor allem Hören!
Plus:
sehr direkter ehrlicher kompromissloser Sound weil
gibt jede Unsauberkeit beim Spielen weiter
Super-Plus:
absolute Dynamik mehr geht nicht (m.Meinung)
handverdrahtet
Plus:
die Verarbeitung und Optik ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben
Plus:
keine Features wie send/return
Plus:
habe kein Minus gefunden

Fazit:
Saugut, sauteuer, und öffnet mit dem Wort "LAUT" eine neue Dimension! Der Amp ist erstklassig
verarbeitet, klingt fantastisch und ist jeden Cent wert und
sieht noch verdammt gut aus für sein Alter:-))))
Ich habe den Kauf nicht bereut und bin sehr glücklich einen
zu besitzen. Das "Ding" gebe ich nicht wieder her!
So genug gesülzt, ich gehe jetzt einen Attenuator kaufen.....

TOP-TEIL
Pol U., 29.07.2010
Marshall kann überraschend gute Verstärker bauen...wenn sie denn HANDWIRED sind. Als alter Marshall-kritischer MESA-FAN war ich beim Antesten überwältigt:dieser Verstärker klingt nicht nur unglaublich gut, sondern hat auch einen ganz eigenen Charakter, der sich von allem was Marshall gebaut hat, abhebt. Kein Wunder, dass die Originale heute noch so begehrt sind. Marshall hat nach 1966 nie mehr etwas besseres gebaut, als eben diesen Superlead. Ich bin dankbar dafür, dass Jim Marshall diesen Amp wieder hat auferstehen lassen...

Super Vertärker!
Alexander 800, 08.08.2012
Als ich den Verstärker zum ersten mal gesehen habe, hatte er schon eine Menge Pluspunkte aber als ich ihn dann gehört habe wollte ich ihn sofort haben. Mit der passenden Box dazu war der Sound noch besser und die war genauso gut verarbeitet wie das Topteil. Es ist einfach ein HANDWIRED Marshall.

Fazit:
Dieser Verstärker klingt einfach nur spitze, sieht toll aus und ist super verarbeitet. Ich kann jedem diesen Verstärker weiterempfelen der nach dem Motto sucht: "WENIGER IST MEHR"

LOB auch an das Thomann Team die den Verstärker und die Box so schnell und ordentlich verpackt geliefert haben.
