That is just so much marketing BS. Hendrix probably rented 50% of the
amps he gigged with, considering the logistics of 'the day' (or lack
thereof). He was known to order stock Strats from Manny's by the
dozens.....played them and left them behind. I'd bet that the JTM
'model' is no different than any other JTM and could just as easily be
built to specs which are readily available with just as much success.
Hype, hype, hype...whip 'em into a lather, and sell 'em while the BS is
still steaming on the ground.
You probably should consider a bit of researching before ranting.
This has been discussed/argued for months on several music boards.
Someone surfaced with an old JTM100 and was selling it on
eBay as a Jimi amp, Marshall took notice of it and verified
the S/N as being one that was sold to the Experience, and
brought it in for a thorough examination and used that info
both for the Hendrix tribute one and for the new Limited Edition
JTM45/100 40th Anniversary. The original JTM100s are considerably
"different than any other JTM". I've owned a couple over the years.
Have you ever seen one?
Don't let any of those pesky fact thingys stand in the way
of a good rant, though.
One of the later ones.
Awesome amps. That one's really clean.
I had 7013 and 7096, both Super PAs for more channel jumping :^)
7013 was the best amp I've ever owned.
There's something special about those aluminum chassis 100 watters.
I've got a bunch of inside/outside pix of both, they're just not
posted anywhere at the moment that I know of. Someone had them up
but I lost the url...
Ya know, I've had a lot of old Marshalls come through my shop in all my years at my workbench.
To me, it is a given that there exists those magical one of a kind amplifier. LOL, but at the time
they were being produced, no one knew there were anything special about them at the time. This was
common to all who made amps. Yet, Jimi Hendrix was an uncommon individual, who brought attention to
what was considered common, in an uncommon way.
Jimi *made* this happen, not the other way around. That, is the major non consideration, in matters
of this kind.
To think that YOU today, because Marshall went back into the Time Machine and put the snatch and
grab on one of Jimi's amps, that you NOW having amplifier, is really going to make a difference to
the player of today over the players of the common Marshall of Jimi's time.
What happened back then will, more likely than not, be a repeat of the performance produced by the
In spite of all this gear head talk, with all the technical variables accounted for, it is still the
human variables that has far greater impact on the final yield.
This only happens in the hands of the uncommon player.
What Jimi did with that Marshall, Jimi did with other amps too.
It's a Jimi thing, not a Marshall thing.
Look at this picture, http://timeelect.com/images/JimiNYE69.jpg ,.....
put EVH in the picture,........ what sounds do you now hear coming from his amps on the stage.
It's all in the Player Factor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
