Sad day when anyone major dies.

My thoughts go out to his family and all those that were closely associated with him.

Searchbar. Already done today. You're a mod, you should know. Now close the thread ******.

Jks, RIP

But there actually has already been a thread just like this today.

Wow...what a loss. Not a marshall man myself but I was lucky enough to play through my friend's super lead during one of his shows. There's a reason why almost every amp manufacturer tries to emulate what he did in some way...RIP.

Don't like what Marshall are doing nowadays, but it's impossible to deny, what this man started was amazing.

Rest in Peace, Jim. =)

At the same time, when you've got people paying $500 for SS practice amps that sound like a sawmill you know you've made one hell of a name.

I'll give it a month until Marshall's new SS flagship is announced.

But on a serious note, RIP.

Legend. It's interesting though, maybe they'll drastically change direction now? I have no idea if he was still head of operations or anything, whether he had much say in the development of Marshall amps, but with a new CEO or whatever, they may take a new angle.

but I digress, it is sad. He is a legend.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It was his son that has been in charge (?) or head of the company for some years now so I doubt that there will be a new direction.

I shall crank the shit out of my Vintage Modern for you Jim. One of the best newer amps that Marshall has put out for a long time.

Yeah, with all the stock in it and the fact that he hasn't even been in charge for quite some time now I doubt we'll see a change. Does make me want to buy a Marshall again though...

While I certainly don't agree with the direction that Marshall Amplification, Inc. has taken with their products of late, I do think that music as we know it would not have been the same without Jim Marshall there to produce the JTM 45. That was, in a way, the beginning of amps as instruments unto themselves, amps as a means of achieving "tone", not just guitars.

It's more like few of us have a sense of humor so dry that we'd consider that to be humorous. To most people that kind of comment is tasteless. Sorry we're not quite as desensitized as you are.

I didn't see it as attacking at all. I think making a joke for the death of someone beloved is much more heartfelt than the generic RIP. Most people would rather have people be smiling than sad at the event of their death.

That wasn't a heartfelt jokey post though. There's nothing wrong with trying to spread some good feelings when people are feeling down about something or if everyone's moping, but there's a good way to do it and a poor way to do it. What went up to their facebook was in poor taste imo

**** Emperor.


Gave the JTM45 clone a blast with volume cranked in Jim's honour. How many other people out there are there where 50 years later people are regularly building replicas of his first design?
Actually that's a good question. What else is there out there in the 50 year or so bracket where the first released product is still sought after so much that people will even take the effort to make their own if they have to - just so they can have one like it.

So first ever released product, still being made and used for 50 years.


And again, **** Emperor.
