Marshall CS JTM145


The Marshall Custom Shop JTM145, a small 1 watter based on the 1964 JTM 45 head. This is an unique take on the rare white faced plexi. A limited run of 200 commissioned by Andertons to celebrate their 50th Anniversary in 2014 definitely started off with a bang. Unlike the JTM1 which was released in 2012, it has 3 band EQ, Hi & Low input with internally dimed signal path which replicates a jumpered 4 holer on the bigger Plexis; allowing plenty of tone and flexibility.

Make no mistake, this 1 watter is very loud dimed! For apartment/house friendly volumes, there is a low powered option but nevertheless is still quite loud (I wouldn’t crank it in the evenings). The EQ is very responsive with a wide sweep and the High Treble & Normal Channel allowed more refined tone tweaking. This is a classic sounding Marshall amp and the moment I had it plugged in, I was just grinning with joy.

Overall it is well packed and the finishing is top notch as usual. It comes with a custom cover, a glossy colour printed manual(leaflet), a certificate of authenticity from Marshall CustomShop, power lead and a patch cable which I’m still unsure what it is for. My only gripe was there were some glue residue left on the handle which could be removed easily.

      Unfortunately not, may be worth keeping n eye on ebay. I saw one a couple of months ago but it’s hard to come by now.
