The Marshall Super 100JH Jimi Hendrix stack consists of the Super 100JH head, the angled 1982AJH 4 x 12 cabinet, and the extra-tall, straight-front 1982JH 4 x 12 cab. The original version of this iconic tall, pinstriped stack was built in 1966. The Super 100 head was the immediate successor to Marshall s first ever 100W head the famous dual output transformer JTM45/100.

In contrast to the diverse array of rich tones it generates, the Super 100JH is an extremely straightforward amplifier. Its two channels High Treble and Normal each have dual inputs (high and low sensitivity) and separate loudness (volume) controls. Both channels share the amplifier s four tone controls: treble, middle, bass and presence. There are three ECC83 (12AX7) valves in the preamp and a quartet of KT66 valves in the power amp, the standard issue in mid-'60s Marshall Amplifiers. The all-important power transformers are built by Drake, the original manufacturer.

The Super 100JH stack s two 4 x 12 speaker cabinets the angled 1982AJH and straight 1982BJH have been reissued to complete the majestic look of the original pinstriped stacks that Jimi used. The 1982BJH is nearly 7 taller than a standard Marshall 4 x 12 , adding further to the impressive look of the stack. Both JH cabs are loaded with Celestion G12C 25W speakers specially developed by Marshall and Celestion to duplicate the sound of the original speakers found in cabinets from that era.

A limited run of Super 100JH Jimi Hendrix stacks is available. Each head is individually numbered and comes with an exclusive certificate, personally signed by Dr. Jim Marshall, OBE. The certificate and handbook will come housed in a unique presentation folder. Also included is a full set of heavy-duty dust covers with the Jimi Hendrix signature logo. Each head and cabinet bears the official Authentic Hendrix logo.
It's only $6400 USF... get one while they last.

Ain't that the truth. But in the long run, I can't believe they really think they can sell that many of them. Maybe they just need some advertising gimmicks now and again. Clearly, there are cheaper alternatives.

i very much agree. sure a die hard hendrix fan will want this. but really, who can afford this? well many can make themselves afford it, but it's sort of ridiculous. you can get an original 1967 or 1969 one for cheaper. theres a 1969 plexi that looks just like it that's on craigslist now with a marshall 4X12 for 3500 and thats fairly good and looks lovely.
