Marshall is a true rock legend. Its legacy began in the 1960s when Jim Marshall sought to give a bunch of local guitarists a harder, crunchier, richer sound. The result was the JTM45, an amp that reverberated with a sound that was much heavier than anything ever heard before. In a twist of rock and roll fate, those guitarists, much like the Marshall name, would go on to revolutionize music forever. We’re celebrating the brand’s rich heritage with commemorative products that live and breathe Marshall. 

Member Benefits:

- 25% discount on Marshall speakers (on order of 50 pieces or more)

-  Only valid on orders placed at Arena* 2018. Models offered: Woburn BT, Stanmore BT, Acton BT, Kilburn, Stockwell; Optional colors
