Marshall 1959SLP

Townshed, Clapton, and Hendrix, to name a few, all played the Marshall 1959 Plexi head. This is the iconic amplifier that defined the sound of rock ‘n’ roll for generations of guitar players, and it can be seen on countless stages of yesterday and today, including Woodstock. Marshall has brought this amp back in all its glory with the 1959SLP 100-watt Super Lead head.

Once a company reaches a certain stature and achieves a respectable tenure, there are certain products that people expect it to always make. For this reason, Kellogg’s will always make cornflakes, Heinz will always make Ketchup, and Marshall will always offer 100 Watt ‘Plexi’ heads.

The 100 Watt Super Lead head of the late ’60s (’68 – ’69) with the famed Plexiglas front panel, is re-issued here in all its glory. The 1959SLP ‘Plexi’ head is the amp that defines classic rock tone.

To ensure absolute tonal authenticity, we took a ‘Plexi’ head from said era, and using it as a template, our R&D experts developed a replica so exact, that sonically we couldn’t tell them apart. The 1959SLP truly is the sound of rock.
