“In 1962 Jim Marshall developed the first Marshall amplifier in his shop in Hanwell, London, England after taking time to listen to what guitar players wanted and needed,” says Managing Director of Marshall Amplification, Jonathan Ellery. “From that very first amplifier, history was created and Marshall became the most iconic guitar amplifier company in the world.”
Delivering a sound that resonates with the presence and power of live music, the Hanwell is a carefully crafted machine, designed to attain that trademark Marshall tone. Its dual long-throw woofers produce super lows, and hi-fi tweeters yield sharp extended highs, rendering the sound sharp and clear, like sitting in the front row of a concert.
How it Looks:
The Hanwell is housed in a wooden cabinet and clad in black vinyl. It features an analog power switch and controls for volume, bass and treble. The fret cloth and gold logo on the front are borrowed from vintage Marshall amplifiers. The body is outlined with gold piping for a celebratory effect.
As a tribute to Marshall’s 50-year legacy, each Hanwell is branded with a numbered anniversary edition commemorative badge. No pricing or availability has been revealed
