❌SOLD❌ Marshall JTM Tremolo 50W ‘Bluesbreaker’ Combo Amp 2×12, 1990

❌SOLD❌  Marshall JTM Tremolo 50W 'Bluesbreaker' Combo Amp 2x12, 1990

The Marshall ‘Bluesbreaker’ model was one of the defining amps of the 1960s, though it was rapidly eclipsed by much higher powered and ever-louder models. The real, original name was the Marshall model 1961, a 30 watt amp with 4×10 inch speakers built for Eric Clapton. That was quickly replaced with a 2×12 version, the model 1962. The 1962 was what Clapton used while in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, and that gave the amp its nickname.
