The Marshall SV20C Studio Vintage is a compact valve combo version of one of the most important guitar amps in history, and arguably the one that put Marshall on the map — the iconic 1959SLP "Plexi"!
Now available in a portable 'Studio Vintage' format, the all-valve SV20C pays homage to the legendary Plexi formula with its single-channel design, four High/Low sensitivity inputs, and classic black & gold styling.
Authentic Plexi Tones
Since the '60s, Marshall's Plexi amplifiers have been used some of the world's most renowned guitar heroes — including Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page and John Frusciante.
There's a reason why so many famous guitarists love the crunchy sound of an EL34-driven Plexi, and when you plug into one and crank it — you'll hear why! They're clear and crisp with plenty of punchy mid-range, meaning that you can effortlessly cut through any band mix with oodles of sustain. Your fiery riffs and solos will be singing for days!
One of the Studio Vintage's coolest features is its power reduction switch. Letting you power down from the full 20W to 5W, the lower wattage allows you to drive the tubes harder at quieter volumes so that you can still attain those gnarly, saturated cranked valve amp sounds at bedroom levels.
DI Output & Effects Loop
The Marshall SV20C Studio Vintage is equipped with a DI output, which allows you to plug the amp directly into your recording interface and capture its tones with an emulated mic'd up cab sound. This is what makes the SV20C so versatile and studio-friendly — hence the name!
If you're a stompbox fanatic, the SV20C can serve as an excellent pedal platform with its dedicated effects loop. Just plug your favourite modulation and time-based pedals in via the loop and enjoy seamless sonic bliss!
