At the time, Marshall says that most felt the Fender Bassman was the amplifier to beat – but it wasn’t perfect.
British company Marshall, founded in 1960, is famous for its amps stacked behind some of the world's greatest rockers -- and as such, the company's first smartphone has a hard-rockin' heritage to live up to.Where other manufacturers pride themselves on how seamless they can make their phones, Marshall deliberately insets the screen slightly so there's a tiny ridge around the display.Whether it protects the screen from drops and scratches as Marhsall claims it does remains to be seen, but it adds to the overall old-school analogue feel of the design.This meant you could drive the preamp valves to produce even thicker, heavier distortion.This led to the development of the JCM800 and then 900 Series.
This led to the development of the one hundred watt head. For cost reasons Marshall started to use EL34 Power Amp Valves which made the amplifiers even more aggressive.
