Description

The Marshall Plexi is the stuff of rock legend.  It's crunchy, glassy and has a signature zing to the treble that cuts through the mix like nothing else. The CPC-50M is my version of the 50 Watt Plexi. It is available as a 50 Watt Head with El-34s or a 18 Watt head with 6V6s.  There were many iterations of the Plexi mine uses the same circuit as the 1968 Superlead.  It's a loud powerful amp that takes pedals exceptionally well.  At lower volumes the sound is clean and glassy and it gathers crunch and sustain as you turn it up. Get the sound of the greats!

The Low Down

The CPC-50M  is great for blues, rock, prog and metal playing and provides a bright power full crunch and nice British style cleans. It pairs well with  British Speakers. It is too loud to cranked up in a small room. However  paired with some pedals works nicely for practice levels.  These amps work exceptionally well with pedals.
