Jim Marshall – Manufacturer of Sound

“I would like to send my condolences out to Jim Marshall’s family. I have always been a fan of the “all-tube” amps and Marhsalls were certainly one of the best! The first amps in the early 60′s used the now famous 12AX7 vacuum tube which helped produce the tone that defined rock and roll music. At the urging of Pete Townsend, Jim built the first 100 watt amplifier and thus started the sound wars of many British bands. Jim Marshall’s innovations had a huge impact on the music industry. He will be missed, but his legacy lives on!” – Jack
