Marshall Amplification is a British company which designs and manufactures music amplifiers. Marshall is based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes. Marshall amplifiers are well known and highly popular among guitarists. Marshall amps were originally built as direct copies of Fender amplifiers, but soon incorporated certain traits which made them more favourable to guitarists seeking a heavier sound. Marshall also manufactures cheaper solid state or hybrid devices.

It is an important sponsor of sport in the locality: as of mid 2009, it sponsors Marshall Milton Keynes Athletic Club as well as Marshall Milton Keynes Lions basketball Club.[1]

The sound of a Marshall 1959 SLP or JCM800-2203 amp is among the most recognised in popular music, and there is a constant demand for both cutting edge and vintage amplifiers.
