Pocket-sized power house with a classic greenback cab
This product is currently on hold.
A stunning 1972 Marshall 1917 PA 20 with 1x12” cab for those moments when only a Marshall will do!
Introduced in 1969 as a vocal PA, these 20watt amps have become popular amongst guitarist as they give you access to those hallowed tones without needing to keep the amp in another postcode.
This amp definitely wins points for cuteness! Black tolex is in excellent condition, free of any wear or tears. In fact all the externals are in good shape. This amp has certainly been well cared for.
As you can see from the internal photos the turrets board is in good condition showing no signs of aging. All the solder joints are undisturbed and the correct transformers are present.
The cab is we believe a model number 1973 as its a 1 x 12” though isn’t ported. Its loaded with a Celestion G12M Greenback dated from 1969 and of course, pre-Rola. Unfortunately the serial number label of the cab is partly missing and we think the grille cloth has been replaced at some stage, probably some time ago.
This amps sounds killer. Regardless of it diminutive size, it still packs a punch which explains why these are considered a studio secret weapon. If you’ve been searching for the Marshall tone at a reasonable volume without having to cart heavy heads around, then this is for you. As with any multi-input amp, you can jump across both channels for some added gain. The controls, though limited, provide the right amount oaf adjustment.
This is a very fine amp which would make a fine addition to any stage or music room. What it lacks in size, it surely makes up for in monster tone.
