Ex-Demo Marshall 1958X Handwired 2 x 10" Guitar Amp Combo

The Marshall 1958X is an all-valve, 18 Watt, two-channel, 2x10” combo with valve driven tremolo and no negative feedback in its cathode-biased output stage. Channel 1 (the non-tremolo channel) only boasts two, self-explanatory controls: Volume and Tone; while Channel 2, the Tremolo Channel, boasts four – namely Volume and Tone, plus Speed and Intensity for the valve driven tremolo circuit.

Marshall’s goal when designing the UK made Handwired Series was both obvious and simple: to make all the models in the range as close to the originals as possible in terms of components, circuitry, constructional methods, materials, specifications, aesthetics, signal path, performance, tonal characteristics and feel. They’ve gone to incredible lengths to achieve maximum authenticity with their suppliers being equally exacting in their tasks.

The 1958X Handwired possesses it’s own unique tonal identity. Yet it shares a common sonic ‘DNA’ with all Hardwired models, namely those aggressive yet sweetly distorted, harmonically rich, musical tones resulting from perfectly crafted circuitry and overdriven power valves. When ‘cranked’ the 1958x combo delivers pure vintage crunch and becomes incredibly touch-sensitive, cleaning up or, if desired, sitting right on the edge of distortion when the guitar’s volume is turned down. Not surprisingly, it responds extremely well to picking dynamics, indefatigably ‘in-your-face’ when you play like you really mean it and cleaning up as you pull back on your picking attack.
