Trusted musician and artist reviews for Marshall 2061X Handwired 20W Amp Head
Based on 3 Reviews and 9 Ratings
these amps are great, old or new.... basically a diode rectified 18 watt without tremelo. There's a lead and a bass channel each with a single guitar-style tone control that's best left close to wide open. They're punchier then an 18 and they actually have a clean sound that can compete with an old deluxe reverb volume-wise. More true midrange then a plexi when recorded through a quad box fulla celestions. Very marhsally, less vox flavor then the 18. It would be hard to choose between these 2 similar circuits but this is overall more of a rhythm amp that can hang with a drummer whereas the 18 watt is all about full bore lead riffage.
A great amplifier.
I love my vibro king, but have been wanting to build a small and large Hendrix rig. I chose this amp for the small rig. I join the two channels. I run the volumes around 2-4 for home practice and 4-6 out. It's a loud 20 watts. I run it into a 2-12 with either Cessation vintage 30s or G12ms. It's not as warm as the fender sound and I'd like to use and A/B box to run both. But, this amp is great for emulating Hendrix. It's a small very portable amp head. I run in pretty clean, but warm and toasty. I use either an Hendrix 70th Fuzz or a J. Rockett Archer to get the dirt. This amp is a great pedal platform. It really doesn't have any negatives. It's simple but it works.
