Marshall 50th Anniversary JMP-1H head in collectable condition. 50th Anniversary plaque on back still has protective plastic on it. It is the biggest 1 watt you will ever hear. This all tube head has the look and tone of the ‘70s JMPs. In fact, I have a Marshall YJM100 (based on early ‘70s JMP) and when I dial down the power scaling to 1 watt, sounds identical to this head. I recently picked up an EVH 5150III EL34 head so this one needs a new home. The low power switch on the back drops to .5 watt and it is truly fantastic for late night. The Volume control sets the overall output volume of the amp, as well as its gain, as the internal tube stages are gradually overdriven more and more. The boost on back is a big time boost so no need for an extra overdrive pedal. This head was made for the U.K. and runs at 230 volt so I’m including the 110 conversion transformer for free. Simply plug the head into the step down transformer and jam away. It is small and can be placed on the amp or floor. Many say European Marshalls sound better because circuits are designed around the input voltage. I haven’t a/b’d side by side but this is an exceptional sounding amp. $700 paypal shipped

FANTASTIC amp here, and with the box. You get nice power section distortion (no mv).
