A Tribute to 'The Father of Loud'... Natal Jim Marshall Drum Kit In Stock!

Posted by Maisie . on 14th October 2015

Jim Marshall Limited Edition Drum Kit.

We've all heard of Marshall amps and Marshall guitars and we see them everywhere, right? But maybe we don't all know the story behind Marshall?

Many people don't realise that Jim Marshall actually started out as a drummer in his early teens. Jim Marshall, OBE, also opened a drum shop in 1960 which was extremely popular with up and coming rock bands of the time.

Jim said;

“All the drummers used to bring their groups in with them, which is how I got to meet guitarists like Pete (Townsend) and Ritchie (Blackmore).”

“They kept pestering me to stock guitars and amps so I decided to give it a go...”

“...I decided to put together a small team to build a valve amplifier with the specific sound the lads were after.”

The first Marshall head was built in September 1962 and was named the JTM45, Jim and Terry Marshall (Jims Son) and 45 to represent it's 45 wattage. This new amplifier was just the beginning of an extremely successful business!

Skipping all the way to 2002, Jim was made an honorary Doctor of Music and in 2004 awarded the OBE. Jim sadly passed away aged 88 on the 5th April, 2012.

To mark 50 years of Marshall Amplification, Natal have created a truly stunning drum kit which acts as tribute to the one and only Jim Marshall.
