Demeaning drummer jokes are a dime-a-dozen – especially in guitar playing circles. That said, there is one skin-beater that no self-respecting six-stringer would ever dare poke fun at. Why? Because, without this drummer, rock as we know and love it today, might never have existed. His name? Jim Marshall. The late, great founder of Marshall Amplification…
Jim Marshall opened a small music shop in Hanwell, London in 1962, selling and teaching drums. The drummers’ guitarist friends often came into the shop telling Marshall about the sound and design they would like to see in a guitar amplifier, but couldn’t find. Marshall soon decided to expand his business and began making guitar amplifiers to compete with American-made amps that were very popular at the time. Known for their signature “crunch” sound and the increased volume they provided, the Marshall amps gained popularity. Today, Marshall is one of the most recognized names in guitar amplifiers and speaker cabinets.
