    First I apologise if this has been covered. I searched but couldn't find a thread.

    It looks like marshall has done several different 1w valve amps. If this is correct could someone explain what models there are ?

    I know a bit about pre 1970 marshalls but am patchy on the 70's and clueless thereafter.

    Even if I knew something once I've probably forgotten...

    I wonder if anyone has ever done a timeline thing which shows models and which years they were made. I've got a marshall history from the 90's but even it doesn't really clarify the later stuff...

    In 2012 Marshall made 1-Watt 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Amps.

    DSL1C = 1415 Pieces made
    DSL1H = 1214 Pieces made
    JCM1C = 1515 Pieces made
    JCM1H = 1437 Pieces made
    JMP1C = 1508 Pieces made
    JMP1H = 1164 Pieces made
    JTM1C = 1562 Pieces made
    JTM1H = 1118 Pieces made
    JVM1C = 1334 Pieces made
    JVM1H = 1165 Pieces made

    The also made a amount of the JTM-1 Offset amp Not sure of how many ( I have one see pic. )

    Today they manufacture the DSL1 Combo and head.

    Other members will for sure get you more information.

    Right, so they were mostly a 1 year thing. I've been looking around, they pull big money. The 50th ann versions, the new one is relatively cheap.

    Thank you. I see people talking about them and was curious.

    I know it is not answering your question at all...

    And there is a huge caveat in that I don't like small amps much, even though desirable for some situations, but...

    The Marshall JMP1 Head - 3-knob, Bass, Treble, Volume, is an incredible sounding small amp. Several of the others in your list, especially those with many knobs and digital reverb, really didn't work for old-school me - but that JMP1 was a real ear-candy machine. Good luck in your quest for knowledge, and have yourself some happy playing...

    Totally agreed! Of all the 1 watt/50th anny heads, the JMP was the star IME too. The JCM800 was also a stud. There's a reason they rarely show up used and it's not because collectors are just hoarding them, they friggin sound great, at least those two models do.

    That would be the one I am selling. They do sound great but after owning the SV20H, Mini Jubilee and recently ordering a Mini 800, I have to make room.
    I figure it was best to let that one go and let someone who needs the JMP1H to finish their collection. I will collect the mini 20 watters instead, lol.

    What's the difference between the H and C versions?

    Based on demo videos I've seen on youtube, I'd go for the JTM-1. Tone for decades.

    The JTM-1 is a fantastic amp, no doubt about it :agreed:

    Same here; I haven't used my JMP1-H since I got my SV20H (and to be fair barely used it since I got my Mini Jubilee 2525H 2.5 years ago). I don't trust selling on eBay though, so I guess I'll be reaching out to a smaller audience, probably the UK equivalent of CL (Gumtree) with local collection only.

    It is, but it's a long way to come from Sweden for it. :)

    I own all the 50th Anniversary Marshalls as well as the Offset JTM half stack. Each paired with a quality cabinet and voice matched Celestion(s) are really good for the volume they operate in. I will never sell them.

    Even though i use my Mini Jubilee 2525H, DSL20HR and Origin 20H the most, of course since they are band volume, the 50ths make great home and recording amps.

    Having said that, i have the DSL1HR as well and if i was looking for a Marshall 1 watt I'd grab one of those since they are available and priced very well.

    I've got the anniversary JMP 1W head that I run through a 1974CX cab, and I've got the anniversary JTM 1W combo. They are great little amps. I like 'em.

    I like that and that looks like it would be perfect in a bedroom , when you don't want to go into the living room where the half stacks and the guitars live .

    You own a wide variety of Marshall heads Biff, I think that’s great, lots of great divergent Marshall tones!

    I agree your sentiments about the Dsl1hr, that little baby sounds great and you can’t beat the price!
