Marshall Amps – The History
Jim Marshall loved music. It was his passion for playing the drums that led to him opening the famed ‘J & T Marshall’ musical instrument store in West London in 1962. That led to Jim becoming friends with young guitarists who were part of London’s vibrant music scene: Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton and Ritchie Blackmore to name but a few, who together would go on to change rock and blues music forever.
Marshall’s legendary products are as popular today as ever, favoured by a broad spectrum of artists, from well-established rock royalty to upcoming bands reinventing rock music for themselves.
