The word “Icon” is not one to be used lightly, but it certainly applies in the case of Jim Marshall. I’ll spare you the lengthy bio, but this British amp designer is responsible for designs that completely changed the way we make music. Jim Passed away at the age of 88, leaving behind a legacy of innovation and a name that is synonymous with Loud.
Jimi Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Eric Clapton, Angus Young, Jimmy Page, Kerry King, Zakk Wylde, Jeff Beck, Slash, Pete Townshend, Nigel Tufnel, Billy Gibbons, and countless other artists have used Marshall amps to create their signature sounds.
Here at Cosmo Music we have a deep and profound respect for this man, and we will be observing a moment of silence in his honour followed by a shattering of that silence by 100 watts of British tube power into an 8 speaker monolith. I invite you to do the same.
