This is Marshall's smallest all valve amp, perfect for the small studio. If you want that real Marshall tone without blowing out the windows, this is the amp for you. Available as a combo amp with 1-10" Celestion of a separate head and cabinet. Has volume, treble, middle and bass controls. No reverb or tremolo. No presence control, although to be fair it would not be possible to implement a proper Marshall presence circuit in an amp with a single ended (non push-pull) power stage.

This amp provides real Marshall tone in a compact package. It's so cute - it growls just like a little kitten. It can actually get surprisingly loud, especially when paired with a 4x12 cabinet. The output jack of the combo accepts a 16 ohm external speaker speaker; the head features jacks for 16 and 8 ohms. There is a headphone jack with switch. 2 ECC83/12AX7 preamp tubes, one EL84 power tube
