    Yeah I like the Marshall tone.
    Raw, edgy, crunchy

    with plenty of underlying clean tone audible.

    Ya who doesn't know Marshall stacks loud and crunchy sound. Legendary guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Angus Young owe their music to Marshall Amps created by Jim.
    Here Sum of less known trivia of Jim Marshall:
    (1)Jim was a drummer before going into business back in 60's.
    (2) it was pete townshend who suggested him to expand his garage shop to a full fleged manufacturing company.
    (3) the first marshall amp made was just a simple black box with a speaker inside and basic controls on top.
    (4) Jim Marshall along with Leo Fender, Les Paul, and Seth Lover are revered as four forefathers of rock music equipments.
    R.I.P Jim...
