Marshall Major Schematics
In 1967 Marshall introduced the Marshall 200 amps. These amps only had 3 knobs: Treble, Bass and Volume. This early Marshall 200 was also known as “the Pig”. In the course of 1968 the Low-High tone control circuitry was changed to a Low-Mid-High tone control and these amps were now called the Marshall Majors.
Using four KT88 power tubes, these amps were very powerfull, obnoxiously loud and very expensive. They were in production up to 1974. An ECC82 was used as the driver tube for the four KT88s.
