Marshall / 2061 X Lead - Bass Reissue / 2013 / Black / Amp
Those of you that know know but to the uninitiated, this is a painstakingly researched and reproduced, point to point handwired reissue of the 2061, made by Marshal between 1968 and 1971. Great care has been taken to source the same components as the original including the transformers made specifically for the amp by Dagnall & Drake.
Great amp with that stunning tone that we’ve all come to love.
A word from the manufacturer…
The two-channel 20 Watt Handwired 2061X is an authentic reissue of the 2061 ‘lead and bass’ head from the late ’60s and early ’70s. And just like the original 2061, it produces that highly desirable, hand-soldered, vintage, all-valve sound in a compact ‘small box’ design. The 2061X’s awesome tone is produced by two ECC83 valves in the preamp, a pair of cathode biased EL84s in the power stage and a silicon diode rectifier. The solid-state rectifier gives the 2061X an aggressive edge, which makes it sound surprisingly contemporary.
Marshall have gone to enormous lengths to seek out and/or reproduce all of the original components and materials, plus revisit the original methods of construction they used back in the late 1960s/early 1970s. From the handwired tag-board circuit, to the custom-manufactured Dagnall output and mains transformers.
It sounds at its best when cranked, and because of its lower Wattage, the 2061X’s EL34s will overdrive at a relatively low volume, making it incredibly flexible, whether in the studio or for live performance. Having said that, at full tilt the 2061X packs a sizable punch, while remaining sensitive to playing dynamics.
