SO many exciting things happening right now with Randall........

But.. I must pay homage to a fallen hero. Jim Marshall.
I got my first Marshall a 71' baby 50w when I was 15, I was working part time at a music store and it came in used.
It wasn't working no lights, no sound... my boss warned me it could be problem, but I had a goods feeling ... I borrowed $150 which was my upcoming paycheck and I bought it...   BLOWN HT FUSE!!!  has worked ever since that day in 1985.
...I was too young to drive, I remember my mom picking me up and I was beside myself with excitement.
That was the moment that I "got real" with a life in music and although I have many, many, many cool different amps, if they had all to go away... they would have to pry that one from my cold dead fingers.

Sorry to hit a somber note...  but Jim Marshall was bigger than just an amp company... he was part of the architecture of Rock'n'Roll itself.

Gonna slam some single malt scotch and fire up my 67' plexi tonight.
