Using Ir's to raise the bar
What are Impulse Responses and how are Marshall using them to take your guitar sound from ‘meh’ to ‘yeah!’?
Posted: 4 September 2019
Since the 60’s Marshall has been synonymous with great guitar tone, and a large part of that is down to the legendary Celestion speakers. From the iconic G12 greenbacks through to the Seventy80s, the Vintage series and beyond, Marshall and Celestion have become the ultimate power couple. Like Bonnie and Clyde or bacon and eggs, they’ve become inseparable and formed an iconic partnership that has stood the test of time.
Which is why when Celestion dove headfirst into the bold new world of Impulse Responses Marshall were only too happy to become their partner in crime and make use of their new IR range. We’ve spent almost 60 years creating some of the greatest guitar sounds in the world, and now there’s a way to accurately capture that and share those sounds with players around the world? Well that sounds exactly like our cup of tea.
