While the 50 Watt 1987X head shares the same â€˜Plexiâ€™ front and rear panel features as the 1959SLP, it has its own distinctive sonic personality. More aggressive than the â€™60s â€˜Plexisâ€™, the 1987X is much more of the â€™72 period, with a heady, sweet/aggressive tone.
These tonal characteristics are what define this much respected all-valve head. Much care and effort has gone into ensuring that the 1987X remains true to those tonal characteristics, as well as ensuring it remains aesthetically true to the original â€˜Plexiâ€™.
The only modern addition to this re-issue is a tonally transparent Series FX Loop.
