As a guitar player, I am intimately familiar with the Marshall brand name. The company has been making amazing amps and cabinets for years. Chances are you’ve heard their sound somewhere on some album. Recently, the company jumped into the world of the Bluetooth speaker and they are now expanding that category with two new speakers and an upgrade.
Marshall has been rocking the world since 1962, giving artists the ability to rattle audiences with amazing sound. The company’s expansion into the consumer Bluetooth market just seems like a natural continuation of the brands story. Each one of these speakers delivers 20-hours of battery life and gives you a Bluetooth distance of 30-feet.
Because of the company’s history with rock and roll the Bluetooth range is modeled after its amps and cabs. The speakers also feature analog control knobs like what you would find on actual amps used on stage. The handles are even made from guitar straps! Here’s the rundown of the company’s new offerings and updated speaker:
New – STOCKWELL II
