Used Marshall JTM60 Head. s/n 964332646.  In very good condition. The handle has a split in the leather, and the very bottom has some (expected) light scratches. Matching 4x10 Cab is also available!

The JTM 60 is easily capable of producing a wide range of usable quality tones, from glassy vintage clean, Bluesbreaker type singing lead and crunchy chord work, to full blown modern high gain crush. What’s more the controls are simple and intuitive to use. Whilst one should always bear in mind that taste in tone is very subjective here follows a few simple suggestions for getting some great sounds from your JTM 60.

Marshall Amplification has been inextricably linked with valve amplification since our very beginning in 1962. Products such as the original Bluesbreaker combos, JTM 45 and Super-Lead heads were all destined to be, and have become, classics in their own right. All of these special Marshalls produced their magical tone by driving the guitar through an all valve pre-amp into a pure valve power-amp. The JTM range carry on this grand tradition, but meet the demands of contemporary guitarists by providing features such as Channel Switching, Reverb, Effects Loop and Speaker Emulated output. Their all valve circuitry is capable of the fullest range of classic sounds from clean to crunch and high gain drive, with superb styling and specially designed ‘Heritage’ loudspeakers giving the JTM range the Vintage looks to match their Classic range of tones.
