The Marshall Super Lead 1972 is a tube based guitar amp head that delivers 100 watts of power. It has four 1/4 inch inputs in the front as well as a speaker output in the back to send this amp to a cabinet. It has switches for both power and stand by.


Using the Marshall Super Lead 1972 guitar amp head is a pretty easy thing to do if you have any previous experience with guitar amps, and if you are using or looking at this amp you probably do. It has pretty basic parameters including volume and gain knobs as well as three EQ knobs. Getting a good sound is pretty easy to do considering that the all the tone control you could want is there and the inherent tone is pretty awesome. I have never seen the manual for the Marshall Super Lead 1972 so I can't speak to how helpful it is, but the amp is easy to use and you really don't need one if you don't already have it.


Both the overdriven and clean tones on the Marshall Super Lead 1972 are noteworthy and truly sound great. I use this amp mostly with either a Fender Strat or Gibson SG for recording and have found this to be a great set up for recording heavy rock and thick distortion guitar parts. While I've only used this amp for recording, it is definitely suitable for any type of use whether you want to use it for recording or for on the stage. The Marshall Super Lead 1972 is simply an awesome sounding amp for rock music.


I've been using the Marshall Super Lead 1972 guitar amp for about four years and it is one of the coolest sounding Marshall amps that I have used, not to mention the awesome classic look it has. Everything about this amp is great - it has an awesome tone and the perfect amount of parameters so you have total control over your sound. These are somewhat hard to come by these days, but if you can find one used they vary in price. If you can find a good deal on one and are looking for a great guitar amp head for playing thick lead and rhythm distorted parts, the Marshall Super Lead 1972 is a great option.
