Used Majestic 40 Two-channel Guitar pedal-platform Amplifier

Written by Jazz Brown

Used Majestic 40 Two-channel Guitar pedal-platform Amplifier. 3rd Power Majestic 40 Amplifier. The amp is in fantastic condition only a few rub marks and a tiny tear towards the bottom left corner. A really great sounding amp simply not the sound i’m about for right now. For trades i’d be considering other Boutique Amps like Tyler, Matchless, Divided by 13 Etc plus cash where needed.


The Majestic 40 is really a two-channel guitar/pedal-platform amplifier designed to the demanding specifications of Stuart Garrard AKA Stu G. in the band Delirious?. The Majestic 40 receives a number of it’s inspiration from Stu’s legendary 70’s Park combo amplifier. But like many vintage amplifiers, it got until it needed to be retired from road use so Stu approached 3rd Power to determine if they might create a new amplifier that does not only captured the spirit from the old Park, but would go to a new level.

That is what we should did! What’s it sound like? Please take a mid 60’s AC30 and layer it with all the bass channel of an vintage 60’s Marshall with its’ big soundstage and full, as well as rich punchy delivery – combined, you find a decidedly British sound that is not totally Marshall or Vox but somewhere among… an ideal love-child of both sides from the classic British tones. Include our Ambient-mode Reverb, HybridMASTER and Citizen-Loop plus you’ve got one fantastic amplifier that may attract anyone creating giant sonic scapes to punchy British-infused rock n roll. The articulation and clarity are laser-guided accurate yet wonderfully warm and analog.
