Here''s the scoop, straight from Marshall:
The 1992LEM is a faithful replica of Lemmy''s favored model 1992 Super Bass Head from 1976, affectionately named "Murder One." Lemmy''s original amp was in the studio and on the road for over 30 years, until Marshall presented him with 1992LEM prototypes for Motörhead''s 2007-8 tour and Murder One went into a well-deserved retirement. The new 1992LEM captures the look, feel, sound and power of Murder One, as well as Lemmy and his legendary band Motörhead.
Lemmy has long been an ardent supporter of Marshall products and a personal friend of company founder Dr. Jim Marshall, OBE. "Marshall amps and speakers have stood behind me on every continent," he stated. "I have never found anyone better to have at my back. If it has Marshall written on it, you can buy it without even a test drive - they''re that good."
To ensure that the end product would be exacting in its tone and performance, every effort was taken to source components from their original suppliers and/or manufacturers. Internally, the 1992LEM''s circuitry has been modified, effectively creating a hybrid amplifier by merging the characteristics of a stock 1992 Super Bass with elements of a Super Lead, arming the 1992LEM with incredible sonic depth and a wide tonal range. The changes to the circuitry allow the player to achieve a far brighter, tighter sound while the inherent grind and tone of a stock 1992 model can still be found in abundance. The power section is driven by four EL34 power valves that produce 100 Watts of crushing volume and tone. Additionally, it features two separate channels, three-band EQ and three ECC83 pre-amp valves.
Lemmy concludes, "Marshall bass amplification has a reputation for being loud and proud. This amp is no exception - the sheer level of valve power on offer is quite thunderous."
