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.
Our amp kits always ship, in their entirety, within one business day or less from the time you order them unless emailed otherwise. And just like all of our kits, we don't just hand you a schematic and wiring diagram and throw you to the wolves. The BYOC Classic Brit 50 comes with the most complete, thorough, and easy-to-follow build instructions. At $794 for a complete kit, the BYOC Classic Brit 50 is the best 1987 50W clone on the market.
If you want a 2x10 or 2x12 combo, select "no cabinet" here and then select your combo cab from our amp cabinets page.
