Marshall Amplification has announced the Studio JTM – its first new product since the legendary brand was bought by Marshall Headphones owner Zound in March of this year.

The Studio JTM takes the sonic hallmarks of Marshall’s legendary tube amp, the JTM45, and places it in a more compact footprint, with a user-friendly 20-watt power rating. It’s still handmade in the UK, but promises to be more lightweight “without compromising on sound quality”.
