that's sad.

I tend to use Vox and Fender hardware personally, but Marshall's contribution to the evolution of modern amps was certainly dramatic.
you could say he brought the price down for everyone else.

I used to have a Marshall 100W amp back in the 80's - I actually blew the speakers out on that.
I use a 50W Peavey practice amp these days - rigged to my trusty GNX3 workstation, it's more than enough for my needs these days.

I love that he lived to be 88. A multiple of "11".
