Marshall Announces Slash AFD100 Amp Project and Website
Marshall Amplification has come up with a unique marketing strategy for the new Slash signature Marshall AFD100 amplifier. The website, http://www.afd100.com/ was created specially for the purpose of showing the new Slash signature model amp as it goes through its various development stages.
Based on the legendary JCM800 2203 head that Slash used on Appetite For Destruction -- which was actually a rental from SIR Studios, Hollywood -- Marshall intends to nail the mojo of this seeming Holy Grail of Marshall amplifiers. The AFD100 is scheduled for release later this year.
Interestingly, this is not the first time Marshall has collaborated with Slash. An earlier amp, the Marshall Jubilee JCM 2555SL Slash Signature, was released in 1996.
