Gold plexi 18W Lite panel
A plexi panel to suit the popular Lite version of the Marshall 18W amp
ON CLEARANCE: This control panels is made of material very similar in appearance to the gold plastic used in the 1960s plexi era. This particular control layout is aimed at the 18W Lite project (based on the original ’60s Marshall 18W amplifier). It would also suit any project with a stripped-down set of controls: Volume and Tone.
From right to left, on the front panel, the controls are: Inputs (1 and 2); Volume; Tone; Standby; On/Off; Indicator. There’s a matching rear panel available, too.
Dimensions & info
The plexi control panel are 483mm wide, 63mm tall and approx 1.5mm thick. It is sized to fit and match the plain medium chassis, and the pre-punched 2×8 and 3×9 chassis (if you widen out the chassis’ Standby hole). The control spacing is 40mm centre to centre – i.e. a total of 240mm from the indicator to the Inputs on the front panel. The holes are pre-punched to suit the mounting shafts of typical controls. Note: the centre line for the holes is slightly offset downwards (28mm from the bottom edge), so that the controls are that little bit easier to see when you’re standing over your amplifier.
