Condolences On the Passing of Jim Marshall

Celestion would like to express their sadness at the news of the passing of Dr. Jim Marshall OBE.

April 5, 2012

As one of the forefathers of amplified guitar, his legacy will be long remembered and revered throughout our industry

The very first Marshall amplifier was constructed in 1962, with the 4x12 cabinet following shortly afterwards. It was the pairing of these two inspired inventions that created a truly unique sound, immediately finding popularity with the great guitarists of the day. Since then, Marshall has become the choice of amplifier for countless guitarists around the world, ensuring the name of Marshall has become synonymous with the "Sound of Rock."

We'd like to offer our deepest sympathies to the Marshall family, employees, friends at this difficult time.

Nigel Wood
Managing Director, Celestion
