Every amp designer has an amp or two that they wish they'd invented, the #1959 Superlead head from Marshall is one of those amps for me.

The responsive, articulate preamp section coupled to THAT 100w power stage, I struggle to think of a more iconic combination.

These amps are all about volume...the more the better. A cranked Plexi sounds like no other and I've recreated the sound of those early Superlead heads in the Plexi 100.

A matching 4x12" cabinet loaded with Celestion Creamback speakers is available to order, just select the option on the right.

I use very high quality components, sourced from UK companies if possible.

I stand behind every amplifier I make. Every Rift amplifier is guaranteed against defects in craftsmanship and components (excluding certain items) for the life of
the amplifier (or my life, which ever ends first) as long as it remains in possession of the original owner.

Second hand amplifiers are not supported by the warranty.

Any user modifications or external modifications even by a qualified technician,
abuse and damage beyond normal wear and tear will void this warranty.

NOS Upgrade

You can now order your amplifier with a full set of NOS valves.

I have personally selected the best valves for each position in the amp from my vast collection.

These are:

  • ECC83 RFT - V1, V2 + V3
  • EL34 RFT/Siemens - V4, V5, V6, V7

I may substitute the above for similar brands (Sylvania for GE, RCA etc) depending on stock levels or how each performs in your amp.

All NOS valves supplied truly are New Old Stock and haven't been used previously. I will test each valve on my Centrad 751 tester to ensure that each is performing 'as new or stronger'

NOS Upgrade Price - £310
