Watch the Jimi Hendrix online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Hendrix was introduced to Marshall amps when he jammed with Cream and he knew that he had found his sound. He was known to use a JTM45/100 head through 2 4x12 cabs, he was also known to use a Super Lead and Super Bass. What cannot be sold short is the effect that that much volume has on the tone and the way the instrument can be played. The first obvious effect that Hendrix took full advantage of was feedback. Unfortunately with todays lower volume stage setups it is very difficult to achieve this tone to it's fullest. The upshot is that you get to keep your hearing!
