Première phrase
While it's hard for most of us to imagine now, there once was a time when rock and roll and all of its associated trappings simply didn't exist. Lire la première page

Ce livre m'avait été recommandé chaudememnt comme étant un livre de référence, et c'est le cas. Il permettra de se familiariser avec les différentes variations des amplis marshall au cours des années. Pour le colectionneur comme pour le musicien, savoir exactement ce qu'est un plexi peut-être utile. Les photographies et les références sur les hauts-parleurs celestion sont un plus.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top Notch Review of the Best Amplifiers Available 10 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
This is one comprehensive book. It is a purist's dream. It has pictures of Marshalls dating back to the Hendrix days, including schematics, and closups of the interiors, exteriors, and platforms of the heads, and the cabinets, ranging from the first "BlueBreakers" (Eric Clapton) 2 X 12" cabs to the early 'Pete Townsend' 8 X 12's (that roadies revolted over.
If you ever wanted to know about British Rock, this is IT. It includes sections on the oldest Marshalls, the early Marshalls, the later Marshalls, the Present (and best) Marshalls (I know for a fact), plus sections on valve amplification and THE preiminent speaker manufacturer, Celestion, of Ipswich, UK, and how they prominently figured into the making (and success) of Marshall products.
The one word of caution I picked up on, and had to find out the hard way, is that the valve section, on tube amplification, which is very key to the entire effort, is that that chapter presents the views of Michael Doyle, NOT Jim Marshall, so don't presume every word is gospel from Jim Marshall himself. The comments about specific valves (tubes) are Micheal's views and not those of Jim Marshall. Jim has his own favorite tubes and to my knowledge, they may not be found here. Although it is quite clear that he prefers the soft, fat sound of driven tubes, to the alternatives.
If ever there was a book about the products that brought us the British invasion of the 60's, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, etc, this is it. It is finely written, detailed, but not overly indulgent, factual, and comprehensive. This is one of the best books on amplification I have read. It is a collector's must. A classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Reference For Marshall Enthusiasts. 11 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This book does a great job of covering all of the bases that make up Marshall amplifiers. The provision of schematics is really helpful in troubleshooting and just seeing how the amp works. The color section is a joy to look at, and the reprinted catalogs are as well. A great book at any price.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent. Well documented reference with lots of photos. 12 février 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
This reference book takes you on a well-crafted journey from the early beginnings of Jim Marshall to the release of the JCM900 and 30th Anniversary series amplifiers in the decade of the 90's. Not only is the text easy to read, but there are scores of beautiful, full color plates of Marshall and Park amplifiers from the earliest models to the latest releases. Mr. Doyle has solicited the help of collectors and dealers to bring you photos of rare models that you won't find anywhere else.

Historians, collectors, and working musicians alike will want this tome for their library, since it covers important information on Marshall amplifiers such as: model information and product specifications, serials numbers, how to date your amp, and even a special section on Celestion speakers. I enjoyed the catalog reprints that are sprinkled throughout the text. They provide a great way to catch the flavor of the period.

Marshall endorsees throughout history are also mentioned. Did you know that Roy Orbison was a Marshall user? How about Pete Townshend? Or Bian Poole and the Tremoloes? Musicians wanting to recreate the sound of certain artists may catch a clue by the amplifier these stars are pictured with. As an added treat, Billy F. Gibbons, lead guitarist for ZZ Top, wrote the spirited introduction to the book.

The do-it-yourselfer will appreciate the over 50 pages of circuit diagrams that Mr. Doyle has included. While mostly tube (valve) amp schematics are shown, there are also transistor amp diagrams here. Mr. Doyle has certainly done his homework in this department.

Marshall amplifiers helped launch the careers of such rock legends as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, and are still considered the upper crust of the amp kingdom. Many of today's artists use Marshall gear in their backline and in the studio. If you've dreamed of owning a Marshall amplifier yourself some day, or are looking for the ideal gift for that hard to please musician on your gift list, I know of no better investment than this handsome volume.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marshalls Rock! 24 août 2005
Par D. Pellerin - Publié sur
This book gives a very detailed look into the inner workings of a legendary amplifier and its maker. The name Marshall has become synonymous with Rock and Roll for over 40 years. Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman,Pete Townshend, Angus Young, Eddie Van Halen, Dave Murray, the list of Marshall stalwarts goes on. Some of the biggest names in Rock have used this amp and continue to use it today. Look at any band's stage setup and you are very likely to see a Marshall or two (or three!)in their backline. This book tells you pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about the Marshall Amp. It takes you into the factory and explains in detail what goes into making a legend. All facets are covered. It even contains circuit diagrams for most of the models in the years 1962 to 1992. A beautiful color section shows the Marshall as it should be seen with some of the amps in custom coverings that have been offered by Marshall and company. It also gives an in depth look at the Man behind the Amp, James C. Marshall, who continues to provide us with the trademark thunderous sound so associated with the Marshall Amplifier. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Rock music, muscians, or their equipment. I think it will fascinate you and hopefully give you an appreciation for this remarkable piece of musical history.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The History of Marshall 18 décembre 2007

Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Since there are no OTHER books out there dealing with the Marshall amplification history this one will just have to do..for now. Sporting no glossary, and with more pictures and poorly reproduced schematics than relevant tonal references, I found myself searching time and time again for some clue as to the legendary tonal qualities associated with the individual models. None were given really. I was hoping for some help in trying to select a new or vintage Marshall amp and I couldn't find it here. There is far MORE INFORMATION available on the internet than is compiled here in this book. Copyrighted in 1993 this book NEEDS TO BE UPDATED, it's now 15 years out of date. For $33.00 I could have done without this book..although I do like looking at the pictures.
