Classic Brit 50 Amp Kit
Everything you need to build a point-to-point, hand-wired version of the classic 1968 (model year) Marshall 1987 (model number) 50 watt amp. With EL34 power tubes, a solid state rectifier, and more power filtering, the 1987 marks the period when Marshall really started to come into their own. This is the amp that defines the classic Marshall tone.
The Tubes: JJ ECC83 preamp tubes, and a matched pair of JJ EL34 power tubes.
The Transformers: We provide Classic Tone™ transformers from Magnetic Components. These aren't rebranded "custom productions" of unknown origin. These are paper layer wound to vintage specs, using vintage construction methods, and made in Chicago, USA by a company that has been winding iron since 1943.
We offer a head cabinet that's comparable to the Marshall "small box", made from 13 ply birch, and available in 6 different color options: black with gold piping, cream with black piping, red with silver piping, orange with white piping, purple with gold piping, and seafoam green with white piping.
If you want a 2x10 or 2x12 combo, select "no cabinet" here and then select your combo cab from our amp cabinets page.
Our cabinets are made to order. Please allow 2 weeks lead time when ordering the kit with cabinet.
