Marshall’s Studio JTM amp marks the 100th birthday of its founder

Marshall has announced the Studio JTM amp, the design of which was inspired by the first ever model made in the brand’s original shop in Hanwell, London.

The launch coincides with founder Jim Marshall’s 100th birthday, with the Studio JTM amp’s sound reminiscent of the same DNA that goes back to the inception of the company in the 1960s.

It aims to reproduce the same “legendary warm and smooth tones” in a form factor that’s smaller and lighter than the original model for those concerned about its potential footprint in a room. Marshall claims the amp is “a breeze to transport” and suitable to be played in a variety if environments.

The Studio JTM features many of the same components the original had, whether it’s the ECC83 preamp values, 5881 power amp valves, 5881 power amp valves, ECC83 phase splitter and G12M-65 Creamback Celestion speakers to produce a warm, “growling”, versatile audio performance.
