Marshall was created in the early 1960s by Jim Marshall, who saw a vision of giving a group of then-local guitarists the likes of Pete Townshend of The Who and Richie Blackmore of Deep Purple, a sound much louder than available elsewhere, in his own drum store. Since then, no other brand has shaped rock ‘n’ roll the way Marshall has. Marshall was popularized by the era’s most progressive rock ‘n’ roll rebels such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton.
After 5 decades, today's guitarists everywhere still revere the name and legacy of Marshall. Marshall has a legacy of 50 solid years; known for its stadium qualityloud and clear soundstage and its hard, crunchy and rich rock 'n' roll sound.
