Our version of the classic Marshall JTM-45 amplifier, circa 1965.
The JTM45 (Marshall's first amplifier) was Jim's version of Leo Fender's 5F6A Tweed Bassman amplifier.
The circuits were nearly identical, but the JTM45 had a beefier power supply, and when used with KT66's & a 4x12 cab, this amp had a British voice all it's own!
A glassy top end with warm & creamy midrange tones makes this amp desirable for many genres of music, especially classic rock & blues.
The slower rectification from the GZ34 adds a slight sagging/smoldering quality to the tone which allows the player to really dig in and make her rip & sing!Like most 4 input Marshall style amps, you can bridge the the 2 channels for slightly more gain and control.This great kit can be customized by you with upgraded parts and can be ordered without the cabinet and / or speaker.Give us a call and let us give you a quote on the kit just how you want it.It is sometimes necessary for Tube to substitute certain parts contained in a kit without prior notification.This is most often due to parts availability and/or to improve the performance of the kit.
