Marlboro 562a 2x10 Solid State Electric Guitar Combo AmplifierMarlboro
What a great little amp this is! This is a Marlboro 562A 2x10 solid state amplifier, likely from the very early 1980's. This one has that warm, kind of smokey jazz tone going on. It's very smooth and rounded on the high end response but retains good clarity and punch. This amp has on board reverb, phaser and vibrato. The reverb is extremely subtle, lacking the depth of a Fender. The phaser and vibrato and are very trippy with a lo-fi, garage rock tonality. Other features include bright and flat inputs, preamp and master volumes, treble-middle-bass tone stack, headphone jack and extension speaker jack. This amp is equipped with a pair of Eminence speakers that date to the 24th week of 1980. The overall condition is good and the amp is very clean for it's age. There's some minor chipping to the tolex, a stain and the front grille cloth and some scratchiness in some of the pots. For the price, you could do a lot worse for a vintage, USA made amplifier.
