When the Marshall 6100 30th Anniversary series was launched at Winter NAMM in 1992 it was met with huge critical acclaim. Not only did it sound great but it looked good too. With blue or white vinyl finishes, all brass plated panel and Marshall script logo, this was an amp that screamed glamour. The valve and transformer covers were also brass plated.
The amp itself was a 100 watt, all valve, triple channel beast. The Marshall 6100 30th Anniversary houses 11 valves: seven ECC83s and four EL34s. All three channels were independent, each with their own controls for EQ and volume and individual gain controls for Crunch and Lead channels. The tone of each channel could be sculped even further, making this amp a showstopper. Channel 1, the clean channel, had a mid-shift button which added a glassier tone to the classic Marshall sound. There was also a bright switch for added shimmer. Channel 2 featured 3 modes, each representing an iconic predecessor. Mode A had a tone similar to a Super Lead/JTM45, Mode B gave the amp a classic JCM800 sound and Mode C brought the heavy metal sound from the JCM900 amps. Channel 3 reached unparalleled levels of gain with contour switches and gain boost.
Alongside this tonal versatility, the amp offered four output power selections. There was the standard Pentode/Triode switch as well as the ability to choose between the use of two valves or four. This provided four different output options.
With its unforgettable look and amazing sound, this amp soon found its way onto the backline of artists such as Joe Satriani, Bill Steer (Carcass) and Alex Lifeson (Rush).
