Randy Rhoads tribute amp.
This all-tube tone machine cranks out fabulous lead distortion and tight crunch exactly like the original model from the 1967 to 1969 era. Inspired by Randy Rhoads, this guitar amp head features 100W of power from 4 EL34s and 3 ECC83s in the preamp--the exact configuration of the original. True bypass series FX loop, 3-band EQ, and presence control. Covered in white, just like Randy liked them.
Throughout their history, Marshall has built strong relationships with the artists who fly the flag for Marshall. Sometimes, sadly, this partnership is ended prematurely. Cited by countless guitarists over the years, Randy Rhoads remains hugely influential in the world of rock 'n' roll and continues to inspire new generations to pick up a guitar. As a rock icon whose reputation as a technical wizard with a unique sense of style precedes him, Marshall felt it appropriate to honor this ambassador of Marshall with his own signature amp. Presenting the 1959RR head.

I once owned this amp however I had a mid-rock crisis and decided I was going jazz instrumental and traded this amp and some other gear for a "jazz" rig. Big mistake. I got all my other stuff back, however (I know the tech who did this and he lied about it being out the door THE SAME DAY) I was told too late, its gone. Whatever, any Marhsall in the 100 watt Super Lead Plexi style is a KEEPER FOR LIFE. Now, my ratings suggest some hesitation; this is because, and its rarely mentioned in reviews, is this amp does not have a gain or separate channel for clean and dirty and Master volume. Randy Rhodes did not achieve the mid-range dominant sound he was famous for by simply turning this amp up to 10 - that would have resulted in the heavy british rock tone (Crossroads, Eric Clapton Live 60's recording). The Crazy Train tone is easy to get if get a Boss Metal Zone and run it through channel one with the pedals' mids at 12 o'clock. HOWEVER, only this combination will deliver the TONE of a Marshall, which is warm and has that certain something only your ears can detect. The Metal Zone through any other amp WILL NOT sound like a Marshall. This amps clean sound is pure as driven snow with a fast moving mountain stream running through it. This amp is f....g LOUD barely turned up to 3 so imagine being onstage in a big club with ch 1 at noon, step on your Metal Zone and observe the crowds' unusual paying attention to YOU. In the hands of a guitarist who knows how to tweak an amp's EQ and match the Marhsll's clean ch to the pedal's, an amazing tone will be heard and its called The Marshall Tone.
I own this amp and would recommend it too anyone that wants a piece of music history. From Randy Rhoads and the Marshall engineers themselves, its Randy's Super Lead 100 watt Marshall. Sexy in white and with either the standard JMP or Randy's Mod inputs you never go wrong. Killer sound and tone with that "Marshall Crunch/Loudness" everyone loves. I mean LOUD!!!
