Marshall Amplifier UK – How The Marshall Stack Came About

For any number of years, the Marshall Amplifier UK brand name has been interchangeable with high decibel guitar amplifiers, rock and roll guitarists and the ever-popular amp stack. If you’re in the market for one of the many guitar amplifiers on the market today, you may like to find out a bit more regarding the now-iconic Marshall model before you make your final selection.

In the 1960s, Jim Marshall began work on what has now turned into the archetypal amplifier seen at rock and roll gigs of all shapes and sizes. From that time on, many world-renowned guitar players have used the familiar Marshall sound to supplement and enhance their own, unique styles, such as Slash from Guns N’ Roses or Pete Townshend from The Who. And it’s not just the sound: equally as impressive is the huge presence generated on stage by the exceptional Marshall stack set up. This came about as musicians, hampered by the absence of today’s powerful PA systems, needed a lot more amplifiers on the stage to increase the overall volume of the music. The solution was to pile yet more amps on stage, stacked on top of each other, with the amplifier head on the top to drive and control the guitar sound. When increasing numbers of Marshall Amps UK were spotted on the music stages all over the world, they grew to be linked with the rock guitar players playing them. Enter any music shop nowadays and you’re sure to see a Marshall stack alongside the popular Gibson Les Paul, as played by Slash from Guns N’ Roses.
