Voodoo Modded Marshall 1959HW Hand Wired (reissue) amp with Mercury Magnetics Transformers.
For those wondering bout this Mod; Not too long ago we acquired a very rare amp that was used on a couple famous records & tours. We cannot divulge the name due to legal reasons & trademark issues, but suffice to say you are all very familiar with the guitarist, the band & songs. We’re calling this the ‘5160 Mod’ & we will have this available on our site for everyone shortly.
Specs; The Mod converts the amp into a (4) Gain Stage design. It is a high gain design but is equally capable of capturing a wide range of tones. I just put the finishing touches on another 1959HW that is shipping out today & I was playing everything from Modern Blues, Classic Rock, 80’s tones to Metal tones.
For versatility purposes I recommend going with our 3-Position mini toggle ‘Bright’ switch & our ‘Bottom’ control, which we are considering including with the Mod when we list it on our site. We can also install our Tube Buffered FX-Loop as well as a Footswitchable Solo Boost Master Volume or convert the amp to a 2-Channel so you can switch between Rhythm tones & Lead / Solo tones.
Please feel free to email or post any questions or call Mon-Fri from 9am-5pm EST / NY time & ask to speak with me. Morning time tends to be best for me but any time is fine. If I am on one of the other lines please leave a message & I will call you back just as soon as I am free.

Here is Jason Hook's latest live rig for 2014. The heads are for the guitar tone & the AxeFX are being used for effects patches. Half of the gear in the effects rack are backups or duplicates, there are also wireless receiver units, power conditioner, amp switcher, etc.
Farwell to a legend - It is with a heavy heart that we say good bye to one of Rock’s greatest bassists, the legendary Jack Bruce. Cream set the bar for a great many & they influenced countless musicians over the years. His music will forever be with us & he will be greatly missed. Thank you for all you gave to us Jack.
We use VoIP phones & have since it was first introduced several years ago. It seems there has been an intermittent software bug. IE: some phone calls would go through fine while others would go straight to voice mail without the phone lines ever ringing. More over were we not receiving the voice mails.
We just spent the better part of a hour on the phone with tech support & after testing the system at great length it seems that the problem has been resolved. If you have a problem getting through (607-256-0465) please email us here on Facebook so that we can address it immediately. Our apologies to those who were not getting through & we thank you for your continued support.
Good News - Things have been very busy here at Voodoo Amps & we’ll pick back up on posting shortly. We hope you have a great Thursday & an even better weekend! – Voodoo Amps
