The 18w 1974X is a re-issue of the 1974 produced between 1966 and 1968. Just like the original, the 1974X is valve driven, hand soldered, with an aluminium chassis, and has a Tremolo circuit. Its two-channel design includes volume, tone, speed and sensitivity on channel one, the tremolo channel and volume and tone controls on channel two. The special 12″ Celestion G12M-20 Greenback in the 1974X has been ‘aged’ to get as close as possible to that vintage, worn in sound of the 1974.

Vintage overdrive-soaked sounds for the stage and studio.
The Marshall 1974X 18W 1×12 Combo Amp is a handwired reissue of the model 1974, a combo originally produced from 1965 to 1968. Introduced as a practice combo amp in 1965, it wasn’t as loud as the terror-inducing heads Marshall was producing, but it could rock, giving up incredible lead and crunch sounds at low volumes. The 1974X combo comes with 2 EL84 tubes in the power amp, 3 ECC83s in the preamp, an EZ81 rectifier tube, and features valve-driven tremolo. A proprietary, aged reissue of the 20W, ceramic magnet Celestion T1221 speaker used in the original adds to the Marshall 1974X’s tonal authenticity. Marshall includes a footswitch with your 1974X Combo Amp.
Quicker to overdrive sooner than an amp of higher power to produce harmonically rich, vintage Marshall tones at volumes that won’t shift your hearing.
Hear every note
Due to the lower wattage and sensitivity of the amp, it will allow you to articulate each note. It is perfect for the studio.
Mix in tremolo
Produces rich, all-valve tones that you can easily manipulate using the speed and intensity controls.
