The Handwired Series is ongoing and, in addition to the 1974CX speaker cabinet, will feature some of the world's most sought after, vintage, all-valve Marshalls. This represents the first time Marshall has offered a handwired product in recent years. Like the originals, these new handwired amps share simplicity of operation and natural valve tone! If you demand the very best, a Handwired Series amp is for you!
Designed to partner with the Handwired 1974X combo, the Handwired 1974CX is also loaded with the proprietary, "aged," 20 Watt Celestion Greenback T1221 speaker.A contributing sonic factor in the original 1974 is the way the sound of the Celestion Greenback speaker softens with age. For the 1974X, Celestion revisited the recipe for the original Greenback T1221 speaker, and "aged" it. The result is a new speaker proprietary to Marshall.
This new series was created to meet growing public demand, and to pay homage to models that, for many players, represent the ultmate in organic, all-valve guitar tone. The primary objective was to achieve maximum authenticity in terms of components, circuitry, construction methods, materials, specifications, aesthetics, signal path, performance, tonal characteristics and feel. All of the original components and materials were used or reproduced, and the original methods of construction employed in the late 1960s were revisited. All transformers - output and power - have been meticulously re-created by Dagnall Electronics, and each amplifier's handwired tag-board lives up to the slogan, 'Point-to-Point Perfection'.
