Inspired by music, designed to impress. We gave 3 musicians an Origin 50C and asked them to play their music their way. We then paired them each with their own designer, who modified their amps to create something totally unique. Just like your tone should stand out, your amp should too. Watch now.
We’re helping you learn music theory and essential techniques to take you from beginner to pro. Whether you’ve just picked up an instrument for the first time or are looking to fill in some gaps in your playing, Making Music with Marshall has everything to give you a helping hand.
The series starts at the very beginning by explaining beats and rhythm, before moving on to cover chords, scales, song structures and much more. Best of all, it's all totally free.
If you talk to any guitarist you will undoubtably hear the world ‘valve’ or ‘tube’ thrown around. The sound of a valve amp cranked nice and loud is synonymous with rock and guitar heritage.

That being said, guitar amplifiers remained married to valves due to the unique feel and tone they produce. Here we take a look at some of the most commonly used power amp valve types and how they lend themselves to different tones.
