Seeking to recreate the sound of the famed Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959 100 watt head.  We profiled this head through five different speaker setups.


*Profiles 1 through 6 were captured with a G12M 20 watt greenback.

*Profiles 7 through 10 were captured with a G12M 25 watt greenback.

*Profiles 11 through 14 were captured with a G12H 30 watt greenback.

*Profiles 15 through 17 were captured with a G12M 20 watt greenback mixed with a JBL D120F.

*Profiles 18 through 22 were captured with a G12-65 Creamback.

*Profile 5 uses Augus Young's approximate live settings.

*Profile 10 uses Pete Thorn’s “Amps in the Zone” ‘72 Plexi settings.

*Profile 17 recreates the early VH brown sound.
