Marshall Amplification began in 1962 in London England. It was here that I had a music shop and taught the drums. As you all know, music shops are not just a place where musicians try and buy gear but are also places where musicians go to chat and spend the time of day. In this respect the Marshall shop was no different from any other music shop. As drummers came to my shop, so came their guitarists. Their guitarists spoke to me about what guitars they wanted and the qualities they were looking for in a guitar amplifier. Qualities I hasten to add that they couldn't find elsewhere at that time. It was from such conversations that I embarked upon the amp manufacturing business and it is a journey that I am still on today and enjoy as much as ever.
Over the years I have seen many changes in the music world, a fact clearly reflected by the diversity of the vast range of products that we currently offer. Regardless of your playing style and needs there is a Marshall set-up that is perfect for you. Furthermore, the unique marriage of technology with hand building skills that we have here at Marshall Amplification ensures the highest possible product quality in every area. Constant re-investment in new and improved production techniques has taken our art to an even higher level of excellence.
In addition to changes in the world of making music, there have also been many changes in the world in general. One of the most interesting developments I have witnessed in recent years is the information super highway, the Internet. I would therefore like to personally welcome you to the official Marshall Web-Site which I am sure you will find both useful and informative.
I would like to stress that the Marshall site is an organic site, in that it will constantly evolve and change. I hope therefore that you will continue to visit this site in the future.
