it is an EXACT replica of the best sounding 1967 100W we have ever
heard (and we've been through too many to count). This is the amp that
truly made the plexi sound the standard for all rock records. (Page,
Clapton, Hendrix, Van Halen, etc..)
Exact replica of a very early example of a 1967 Marshall JMP 100 Watt head, just after they switched over to EL34 output tubes changing the output transformer. Classic perfection of one of the most recorded amps in rock history. All the legends including Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Hendrix. We've found the best of the best for tone and replicated every exact detail. $2,400.00

This is a JTM replica with a little twist. It is a stock 1967 JTM circuit, 5ar4 tube recto, 2- el34, 3 ecc83. The transformers are authentic. The power transformer is a low voltage model running 300 volts- this leads to a softer, sweeter breakup with a little less headroom than the higher voltage transformers found in the later 50 watters. The output transformer is el34 version of the radiospares transformer, it has a primary of 3.4k with m6 laminations. we think you will find that this OT retains the clarity and sweetness of the Splitfront OT, but runs lower impedance to accommodate the el34. Another special feature is this amp ahs a split cathode. Channel 1 has a .68uf/1K bypass to accentuate the mid response, channel 2 has a 250uf/820ohm bypass which is a stock setup, giving the classic big bottom of the early marshalls
The white one that is shown is a prototype and is not for sale we have black ones in stock a white one can be ordered but that would be backordered for several weeks. $2,275.00
