Metropoulos GPM 45
Metropoulos GPM 45 1965 Era Replica - 38 Watts
As used by: Angus Young
The Metropoulos Amplification GPM 45 Head accurately re-creates the head version of a 1965 era Marshall JTM 45. The tone is warm and creamy in all the right ways. Fender-y when you want it to be, bluesy when you have to be and authentic 1960's British tones at every turn of a knob. It weeps, it moans and it sings with a vocal voice like no other amp.
According to Premier Guitar Magazine, the GPM 45 has "an ease about it that made it feel like a broken-in vintage head, making it a breeze to dig in, or to lay back on the strings and feel the amp act as in instrument. It was truly inspiring. Of all the amps in roundup, this amp sounded the most like our '65 — frighteningly close!"
