Why We Love This Product!

Two Channels of Handwired Marshall Bliss!

Though the 50 Watt 1987XL shares the same front and rear panel features as its big brother, the 1959 SLP, it does have its own distinct personality. Sweet warm singing sounds are packed into every nook and cranny of this awesome tone machine.

Marshall 1987XL Features:
    • Part of the Marshall Classic collection
    • Classic Marshall through and through
    • New series effects loop feature
    • Mix two channels together at once for a totally one-of-a-kind sound

Marxhall Classic Series
The main characteristic that these amps share is their simplicity of operation and superb natural valve tone. Achieving the beautifully organic and vibrant overdrive which is their trademark, can only be done in one way - crank 'em up! The result is pure, majestic tone uncluttered by unnecessary circuitry. With solos this produces a big, round, warm, sustain, full of classic character. With chord work you get a bark and percussive attack with a natural sounding break up, which allows each note to ring out in a glorious musical crunch.

One-of-a-kind Sounds
With the Marshall 1987XL, you can mix the two channels together by connecting a short, screened patch lead between the second in of Channel 1 and the first input of Channel 2. If you then plug your guitar into the first input of Channel 1, you can mix the different tonal characters of each channel for greater flexibility!

Uncompromised Tone - Even Through the Effects Loop
The Series Effects Loop features a true bypass switch that takes the loop completely out of the circuit, thus ensuring the original tone isn't compromised. The Level Switch allows you match the loop to either stompboxes or rack units.

Classic Marshall Appointments
As is the case with the 1959SLP, the 1987X has fittings and hardware as true to the originals as humanly possible, thus ensuring that authentic Marshall 'Vintage' look.
