In celebration of what would have been Jim Marshall’s 100th birthday and to also pay homage to its first-ever amplifier, British amp manufacturer, Marshall has presented the latest addition to its Studio series — and it’s a revitalized version of the brand’s JTM amp, which was first produced in 1962.

The new Studio JTM range — which has been handmade in Marshall’s UK-based factory in Milton Keynes — welcomes four unique products in the form of a 20W head, 20W combination amp, 1 x 12” and 2 x 12”, with each creation complemented with period-correct aesthetics, such as Marshall’s classic red “Coffin” logo and the iconic fawn fret.

Additionally, the original JTM45 received stellar co-signs from the likes of rock music legends, Gary Moore, Richie Blackmore, and Angus Young. The trio praised the amplifier for the enhanced grain and grit it gave their sound, and the same intentions have been applied to Marshall’s latest versions of the JTM.

Ideal for both home use or on smaller stages, the Studio JTM has been created with built-in power reduction technology, allowing players to switch between 20W and 5W settings. Meanwhile, many of the same components that helped define the original JTM tone are used in the new version, with ECC83 preamp values, 5881 power amp valves, ECC83 phase splitter, and G12M-65 Creamback Celestion speakers providing a smooth combination of warm and growling sounds.

Also featuring an FX Loop and DI out, the Studio JTM gives players the chance to add FX and external recording to personalize the playing experience even further.

Commenting on the release of the new amplifier collection, Terry Marshall, Jim Marshall’s son and creator of the original JTM45 said: “When I was demonstrated the [new] Studio JTM, it took me back to my original JTM45, it was my sound…I feel like it is going to be something special.”

You can take a closer look at Marshall’s new Studio JTM above and it is available to shop via the brand’s official website from July 28.
