Everyone knows the story. Frustrated with the difficulty in getting American amplifiers to the UK, and in order to give Pete Townsend "a bit more," Jim Marshall only slightly varied Leo Fender's Bassman to create the JTM 45, and launch one of the most iconic brands of all time.
There's no doubt about the Bassman's place in guitar amplifier history. It's the grandfather of just about any Marshall head, and it has been heard on some of the most important rock recordings in history. The B pays homage, respectfully, to what some believe to be the greatest guitar amplifier of all time. Fat, warm tones at anywhere on the dial, and that sound when pushed into overdrive. Want KT66s, KT88s or EL34s? We can make it happen. All kinds of modifications are possible to tailor this seminal circuit to your tastes and needs.
