The Best of Britain: Marshall Amps



Marshall has been providing the world with their ingenious, iconic amps since 1962, and it all began in a small music shop in West London.

Jim Marshall, “The Father of Loud”, created Marshall amps in response to the many conversations he’d had with guitarists such as Pete Townshend, Ritchie Blackmore and many others, who said they just could not find the sound they were looking for - a powerful sound with plenty of tone that was extremely loud. Jim always listened to his customers, so set to work with his team on what was to become the archetypal rock guitar amplifier, the JTM45, and with this amp a music revolution was born: the ‘Marshall Sound’.


Most Marshall amplifiers and cabinets are still produced at the Marshall production facility in Bletchley, England, where they have been made continuously since 1966. Every amp and cab is built with passion and precision, with a human touch that’s rare in today’s manufacturing processes; resulting in precision hand wiring, speaker fitting and amp and cab covering. This attention to detail is what sets Marshall apart and is why it is has been the first choice of amplification for many legendary guitarists for more than 50 years.
