Marshall SV20H Studio Vintage 20w amp head

A mini version of the legendary 'Plexi' sound 1959SLP

Written by

Jed Van Wyngaardt

The Studio Vintage is a mini version of one of the most popular guitar amps in history and the amp that has put Marshall on the map forever: The Plexi!

The original Plexi amps were used by countless guitar heroes such as Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, John Frusciante and many more!

It's now available in this 'Studio' format which is switchable between 20w and 5w depending on how you're using it. The lower wattage (compared to the original 100w head) allows you to drive the tubes at lower volumes and capture those classic hot blues tones easily.

Fat blues tones

There's a reason that so many famous guitarists love the sound of a Plexi and when you plug into one and crank it you'll see why. They're clear and crisp with plenty of mid-range for you to cut through the mix but with oodles of sustain. Your fiery solos will be singing for days.

DI Output & Effects Loop

It's also got a DI output which allows you to plug it directly into your recording interface and capture the sound of the amp with an emulated mic'd up cab sound. This is what makes it so versatile and useful to have in the studio - you don't even need to mic it up! 

It's also got an effects loop so that you can choose where the preamp saturation is in your signal chain, making this Plexi-style amp more versatile than ever before! 

Here's what Marshall say about the Studio Classic 20 

Based on an amp that inspired generations of iconic guitarists, the 1959SLP. Marshall Studio Vintage amps deliver the unmistakeable tone shaping and harmonics that are expected from the 1959SLP in a portable format. You can play anything from saturated blues tones to biting leads for classic rock.
