On this day…

Today in 1964, Jim Marshall amplification was founded.

Jim Marshall was running a drum shop, and by request of his customers, who included Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend, he created the revolutionary JTM45 50-watt amp. Piled high in the famous ‘speaker stack,’ they created the hard rocking sound that his customers wanted to acheive!

Jim Marshall (James Charles Marshall OBE) died on the 5 April 2012, leaving his iconic brand and ‘the Marshall sound’ as a legacy.
