Over time (and 1964 was certainly a very long time ago) your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding like new again.
We always recommend JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune. Remember, JJ is one of only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.
So restore the tone, the power and the sparkle to your guitar amplifier. Treat yourself to a brand new set of valves today.

About the amp:
So the story goes that Eric Clapton asked Marshall to make him a combo that would fit in the back of his car but was loud enough to play on stage. The rest is history. There are several versions of this amp including two reissues so check which valves are in your amp before you order.
Order yours today and hear the difference.
