A new dimension in high quality sound amplification has been introduced to Sri Lanka by the Yamaha Music Centre with the launch of a range of Bluetooth speakers and headphones from Marshall, the iconic British manufacturer of guitar amplifiers.
Combining the latest in high fidelity sound with the signature retro designs for which the brand is famous, the Marshall range is targeted at discerning music enthusiasts who do not wish to sacrifice sonic quality for size, the company said.
The Marshall headphone range now available at Yamaha Music Centre comprises of three models – the Marshall Major II, the Monitor and the Mode EQ – which deliver deeper base, extended detailed highs and refined mid-range sound with improved ergonomics, minimal distortion and superior noise isolation.
For sound enthusiasts looking for the state-of-the-art in wireless amplification is a range of active stereo speakers in the classic vintage Marshall designs that are a throwback to the golden age of rock’n’roll, with analogue interaction knobs and the iconic script logo across the front. The Woburn, the Stanmore, the Acton, the Kilburn and the Stockwell Bluetooth speakers from Marshall deliver deep base notes that seem to defy the laws of nature for their compact sizes.
“This is one of the most exciting series of products that we have launched in recent times,” Yamaha Music Centre General Manager – Sales & Marketing, Shane Joachim said. “For sound enthusiasts, Marshall is a revered brand name in amplifiers, but now they don’t need to have a band to own one. Any discerning music lover would be proud to own a Marshall Bluetooth speaker or headphone.”
The Marshall brand was founded in 1962 by drum shop owner and drummer Jim Marshall, and is now based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes. The signature Marshall sound was conceived after guitarists such as Pete Townshend visited Marshall’s drum shop and complained that the guitar amplifiers then on the market did not have the right sound or enough volume. Today, Marshall’s guitar amplifiers are among the most recognised in the world.
The Yamaha Music Centre is currently the only music store in the country offering customers world class musical instruments, home audio, pro audio and studio recording equipment under one roof. The Yamaha brand’s legacy in Sri Lanka traces its beginnings to Michael Caderamanpulle Snr retailing Yamaha pianos in 1922 under the name ‘Yamaha Music Centre.’
