Marshall 1959RR Randy Rhoads Signature Super Lead 100W Head

Quick Overview

This Marshall 1959RR is effectively NOS, as near to new as possible. So much so, that having been stored in it's original carton since its arrival in 2008, never being removed after the first play test upon arrival, the foam shipping inserts have slightly discoloured some of the whit piping. This can be seen in the photos.

This Marshall 1959RR is effectively NOS, as near to new as possible. So much so, that having been stored in it's original carton since its arrival in 2008, never being removed after the first play test upon arrival, the foam shipping inserts have slightly discoloured some of the whit piping.

Original cover has never been removed from it's packaging. Complete with manual, CoA and all associated paperwork.

This was just the fourth signature amp Marshall produced, and of this limited edition head they had this to say:

"When Randy ordered his now famous white head, he visited the Marshall factory to pick it up and had it modified for more gain while he was there. Thanks to the Rhoads family, one of Maershall's engineers was allowed to take a detailed peak inside Randy’s original head (wisely kept under lock and key in a vault in an undisclosed location along with his equally famous guitars) to ensure that the Tribute amp was electronically identical to it.

As a further bonus Marshall were also able to speak to the Marshall test manager who did the modification while “the small bloke with a white Les Paul” patiently stood by and waited! The mod in question? It simply cascades the two halves of the first ECC83 valve, giving you a lot more preamp distortion than in a standard 1959 Super Lead head. Channel I (a.k.a. the “High Treble” channel) remains “as is” but when you plug into Channel II (the so-called “Normal” channel) both Volume controls (I & II) work together in tandem (series) to produce the increased preamp overdrive desired."

So, if you want to see what a 1959RR would look and sound like after being boxed in its original packaging since the day it arrived new in 2008, here it is. Any questions gladly answered.
