Members of the Guitar World crew visited the always-cooling-looking Marshall Amplification booth at the 2014 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. Marshall's Nick Bowcott gave us a tour of the company's latest offerings, which include the Custom Shop JVM Tattoo Series and the popular Handwired Series.
On January 23, the first day of the 2014 Winter NAMM Show, Marshall Amplification announced the launch of four new additions to its Handwired Series. Handwired is an ongoing series that features painstaking reissues of revered, historical Marshall products that were originally completely wired by the human hand.
Today, January 23, Marshall announced the launch of its new Custom Shop Tattoo Series. The company got together with five of the U.K.’s most respected tattooists to lend their art and style to some of Marshall’s British-built products.
On January 23, Marshall Amplification announced the launch of four new additions to its Handwired Series. The Handwired Series of all-valve amps celebrates Marshall’s legacy of influencing the sound of rock and blues for more than 50 years.
The subject of this month's challenge is Slayer's "Raining Blood," the five-page transcription of which starts on Page 112 of the August 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine. This month, you'll be competing for a new amp, Marshall's MG Series MG15CFXMS 15W Mini Stack Carbon Fiber (MSRP: $540).
Let's face it, bringing a 100-watt guitar amp to your average weekend bar gig is a lot like taking a Lamborghini to Shop Rite for Sunday-afternoon grocery shopping. You simply don't need all that power.
