After the huge success of the JTM45 amplifier, a 2x12" combo version was released to satisfy popular demand and the now legendary 1962 Combo was born. Again the valve rectification, pioneered by Marshall in the early 1960s, was responsible for helping to achieve the famed output stage compression and sustain exhibited uniquely by both the JTM45 and 1962.
Though tonally similar to a JTM45, the 1962 combo is loaded with two re-issue Celestion 25 Watt Greenback speakers to re-create that classic sixties tone. The 1962 Bluesbreaker Combo also comes with the addition of a footswitchable Tremolo effect.
The 1962 received its more familiar nick name, the Bluesbreakers, after Eric Clapton used one with John Mayall s Bluesbreakers to record their highly influential Beano album.
Here was one of the earliest and finest examples of a guitarist using the natural tone and overdrive of an amplifier to help form a fundamental ingredient in his own overall sound.
So if you re looking for that sensuous, creamy early Clapton sound, we guarantee that you ll find it in this beautifully re-issued combo.Features:
