Overview

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.

The Real Real Thing

By Keith B. Peterson

from Everett Washington

I've been playing since age 6, I'm 52 now..I've played through the original 1959 Plexis; this monster plays as advertised. It actually sounds better than the 59s w/printed circuits. Great assertive tone, tight crunch and yes..that classic Marshall roar--just like the originals. If you want the ultimate guitar head/stack..this is it!! If one is in the market for a top-end amp, look no further! Others may claim "British Roar", but the Marshall 1959HW Plexi delivers!
