Marshall Guitar Amplifiers, All Amp Types

Marshall Amplification is an English Company which designs and manufactures guitar amplifiers and speaker cabinets. The Marshall brand was founded by drummer Jim Marshall in the 60’s. Marshall guitar amplifiers are among the most recognised in the world and are known for the “marshall crunch” sound. This signature sound was conceived by Marshall after a number guitarists visiting Marshall’s shop complained that the current guitar amplifier on the market did not have the right sound or enough output volume. Once created this new amplifier design gained a lot of publicity and Marshall guitar amplifiers and loudspeaker cabinets were sought by guitarists around the World.

Apart from high specification Marshall valve amplifiers also manufactures less expensive marshall solid-state amps and marshall modeling amplifiers.

See below our list of Marshall guitar amplifiers. On our website we access the separate web pages of different suppliers and list the products to make comparing the prices easy. You can then click through to the chosen supplier and buy the product, hopefully making a nice saving as well.

Guitar Amplifier Types Explained

There are many styles of guitar amplifier on the market, as can be seen from the list above. Each amplifier type is designed to either work with a specific type of guitar eg Bass guitar amp, Lead guitar amp, Acoustic guitar amp etc. There are also different styles of circuits used to generate the overall sound that is produced. The biggest difference being between vintage valve guitar amplifier circuits and solid state guitar amplifier circuits which became popular in the 70’s. These include silicone chips or IC’s and transistors. The type of sound generate by a valve amplifier and a solid state are very different.

Read our guide to the different types of guitar amplifier to see how each style is made and used. When choosing a guitar amplifier it is best to first decide how it will be used as this will dictate the power output required. For instance a 5W practice amplifier will be perfect for use at home but a waste of time if you plan to tour and have gigs. Guitar amplifiers are available with power outputs from 2w up to 200w and beyond. The next consideration should be the sound type and the type of instrument to be used. On our web site we have some guide pages related to valve guitar amplifiers, especially push-pull designs using matched output tubes.

Read our guitar amplifier valves explained page to understand more about how the valves work in the circuit and the different types of valve that can be used. The general rule being more valves more power. In a push-pull guitar amplifier design one valve is pushing the speaker cone and one is pulling it. As the sound generated by the speaker cabinet is reliant on a clean signal it is important that the valves push and pull in equal measure.

Read our guitar amplifier technical pages on the design of a Push Pull Valve Amplifier and also a Single Ended Valve Amplifier to understand how the technology works. We have also explained the role of the guitar amplifier pre-amplifier valves and the guitar amplifier power output valves. We have also done tests to see how different pre-amplifier valves compared and how they can shape the sound generated by the amplifier.
