Hi all,
I've been browsing through this forum for a while now
and since my new amp arrived yesterday i thought i could
post a little NAD myself.
I played on an amp in a shop about 1 month ago in order to
try out the line6 g30 for our rythm guitarist. Although I already
had a marshall dsl 401 which I really like i couldn't get that
amp out of my head. So after christmas and my birthday + some
saved money i finally had enough to purchase my new amp
And here it is!

Marshall 1974x !

Since my englisch isn't the greatest and I've had the amp
for just 1 day I'm gonna keep the review rather short.
Althoguh it already breaks up when the volume is turned past
2 1/2 i prefer the cleans that i get between 1 and 2 to the cleans
of my dsl 401. I would say they sound very lively. Turn the volume
clockwise and you'll get a lovely overdrive tone up to that
( how i would describe it ) classic marshall rock tone with top-end harmonic richness.

Ok, here's my question:
When playing live it would be nice to have a second clean channel.
Since rolling back the volume on the guitar doesn't help anymore when
the volume on the amp is turned up to 10 i tought to increase the amp's
versatility i could connect both, the normal and the tremolo input on my
amp to an A/B box and the box to my guitar. Now when i turn the volume
on the normal channel to 10 and the volume on the tremolo channel to 2
i could switch between a distorted and a clean channel, right? I know there
will be a huge volume difference so i need an effect between the tremolo
input and the A/B box in order to increase the volume without pushing it
into overdrive. Any chances i'll have succes with this? Or is there no
chance to increase the volume without pushing the amp into overdrive?
Or am I complety wrong with my thought?

Sry, quite a wall of text but pls be kind it's my first post

Nice one, you need some clips though, or the thread may be closed.

HNAD! Seriously nice looking.
Wait.

Nice amp, by the way!

Thanks guys!

Yep, it's hand wire and it cost me about 1,2k euros
But I think it's absolutely worth it
Here is a clip:

Just a simple rythm guitar and some improvised solos.
Doesn't do the amp justice but you get an idea..


Sproing!
Worth every penny. Did you by chance play that up against the jmp reissues or any of the other hand wireds they released? They are all within the same ballpark price range I think...2.5k usd.

just listened to your clip...suddenly feeling very gassy.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

Nope, the 1974x was the only amp of the handwired series they had in stock. I also thought about the Marshall JTM45/2245 but i just didn't have the extra money for a cab.

no idea what gassy means

G.A.S = gear acquisition syndrome. A rather unfortunately named medical condition us gear hounds suffer from which forces us to buy gear. for example, you GAS'ed for that Marshall.


haha, that finally makes sense in contrast to the solutions i found in my dictionaty

Thanks again all!
