30th Anniversary Blue Halfstack
This Is The Main "30th Anniversary" Amp that I Bring Out
On The Road. It Has White Marshall Logos and a British Flag Sticker
that came stock next to the power cord on the back. Has a few little
battle scars from all past touring gigs.
This thing has been known for killing small rodents
scurrying out across the stage in front of it.
30th Anniversary Head
Don't let the size of this picture fool
you. This Marshall model 6100 30th Anniversary with 3 channels,
fully switchable, separate EQ for each stage, is a big BIG sound,
with all the history in one head. Presence control, master volume,
effects level, rear send and returns, pentode and triode settings,
midi control. Where to start! Channel 1 is called clean and with a
bright switch and a mid shift push switch, the tones range from a
JTM 45 through the spectrum to a warm and full Super Lead. Separate
EQ rounds out a true recreation of the top Marshall sounds. Channel
2 or crunch has more tonal variation than many amps in total! Low
gain natural tube (valve) distortion sounds like a JTM 45. With the
push of the mode switch to B, the amp imparts the crunch of a 1959
Super Lead or early Master Volume. C provides drive rivalling the
JCM 900 master vol. amps. WOW! Channel 3 is the standard for tone.
Like the Crunch channel, this stage contains gain control as well as
a gain boost and contour switch affecting mid-range frequencies.
Perfect overdrive capabilities. In a word: MONSTROUS!
switchable to 50 or 25 (Pentode or triode). All tubes with Marshall
5881 valves. 3 channel switching with seperate EQ. Presence and
Effects level plus master volume.
Tone: stupendous versatility
emulating the top Marshall amps from 1962 on!
Marshall head design with beer barrel knobs, easy access to controls
and back panel settings.
Quirks: Hell for a
History: Still offered, this top-of-the-line head
delivers the classic
sounds of the 60's 70's and
Desirability: A batch of history waiting in one souped up
package. Not yet vintage but having all the vintage sounds inside.
The real deal. This Is the baddest amp in the history of
Three Separate Channels
CLEAN channel 1 has all
the sparkling clarity and glassy fidelity of the early JTM45. Deft
use of of the tone controls, mid band shift, and bright switches can
carry you across a whole spectrum of crisp country, warm jazz, and
classic rock clean tones.
CRUNCH is only part of the story of
channel 2. It contains three selectable modes to cover the range of
vintage Super Lead purity, to 70's Master Volume grinding power, to
90's Hi-Gain drive. Creamy or biting blues, hard rock rhythms, or
metallic anthems can be given the Marshall touch with this channel,
which recreates the character of amps from each Marshall era.
LEAD is what channel 3 is all about. This channel has a switch
for two gain alternatives. The first, a smoldering saturation, is
preset to the channel. The other is a searing gain boost that shoots
screaming solos beyond the limits of any previous sonic experience.
Besides awesome gain, Marshall includes a mid-shift selector to
transform the middle control into an expansive "contour" control.
Where other high-gain amps turn muddy and lose definition, the 30th
anniversary model tonal shaping helps you to retain the definition
that articulates every note.
