In close conjunction with Authentic Hendrix, the family company established by Jimi's father, the late James Al Hendrix, and after many months of painstaking research, Marshall is proud to announce the limited edition, handwired Super 100JH 100-watt stack. This is the latest addition to the ongoing series of handwired reissues. It celebrates the 40th anniversary of their world famous association with the late, great Jimi Hendrix and pays homage to the legendary guitarist that Dr. Jim Marshall OBE has always referred to as his company's 'greatest ever ambassador.'
"Anyone who truly knew Jimi was well aware of how seriously he took his instruments and equipment," Janie Hendrix, the President/CEO of Experience Hendrix, states. "To achieve the sound he heard playing inside, he had to have the right tools. Gauging from his performances, he clearly embraced Marshall amps. We too embrace Marshall because it allowed us to hear Jimi as we never would have before, with the truest sound and most feeling. We are happy to see the past re-birthed in the form of this Jimi Hendrix signature amp stack. It is our pleasure to partner with Marshall Amplification in giving volume to the legacy of Jimi."
After hearing and then playing through a Marshall stack for the first time while in London during the autumn of 1966, Jimi Hendrix wanted to meet the maker who shared his first and middle names - James Marshall!
Thus, in October of that year the guitarist visited Jim's shop in Hanwell and a lasting friendship and association was immediately struck. "Despite his somewhat wild appearance and his incredible, larger-than-life onstage persona, Jimi was a very softly spoken and extremely polite young man with a fantastic sense of humor," Dr. Marshall recalls. "We hit it off right away and became good friends." On leaving Jim's shop, Jimi had secured an order for his 100 Watt Marshall stacks and, as the saying goes, the rest of the story is now history...
"Meeting Jim was beyond groovy for me," Jimi was quoted as saying about his visit to the Marshall show in Hanwell. "It was such a relief to talk to someone who knows and cares about sound. Jim really listened to me and answered a lot of questions. I love my Marshall amps: I am nothing without them!"
The Jimi Hendrix stack consists of the Super 100JH head, the angled 1982AJH 4x12 in. and the extra-tall, straight-fronted 1982BJH 4x12 in. cabinets. The original versions of this iconic, tall, pinstriped stack were built in 1966 and the Super 100 head was the immediate successor to Marshall's first ever 100-Watt head -- the famous dual output transformer JTM45/100.
