    One of the more obscure Marshall models, the 1930 Popular was only in production from around 1967 to 1973 and sold via mail order. Consequently they’re regarded as fairly rare, although that doesn’t necessarily mean that few were sold. A 10 watt amp powered by a pair of ECL86 output valves with a single ECC83 at the input, these often end up modified to 1974 specification due to both sharing the same chassis.

    This amp is in good condition. Tolex is tear free, the grill cloth has faded a little but shows no signs of wear. The knobs have been changed though the originals are with the amp. Text on the control plate is mostly still present and there is no sign of corrosion. Cobwebs are included free of charge, we do not charge extra.

    Internally the amp has been recapped, pots changed and the valves are recently fitted. Transformers for both the power and output are correct. The older cable has been replaced, original included.

    Both Celestion 10” speakers are correct and tear free. From research online we believe the cones are Pulsonic, famed for their softer and more fluid sound quality.

    Though sonically not quite the ‘Mini Bluesbreaker’ of its 18 watt 1974 relative, this amp certainly has that Marshall grunt when provoked with a chimey clean that’s more reminiscent of a vox.

    A well kept studio secret, there aren't many of these out there. Grab this bargain before everyone gets to hear about it..
