RIP: Jim Marshall Invented Affordable Amplifiers

Based in Milton Keynes, England, Father of Loud has passed on at 88 years young. Jim Marshall invented an amplifer in the 60s cheaper than American made ones that were popular in the market then.
.
Peter Townshend, Ritchie Blackmore, John Entwistle of The Who, Slash from Guns n Roses, American-Blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa and bands like, Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zeppelin were some of the musicians who used Marshall amplifiers.
.
As far as I can remember many of our local pop music makers use this brand of amplifier. Comment anyone? Check Jim Marshall out from the websites below:
