Confusingly, 1962 is the model number, rather than the year that this amplifier was born.
That was in 1965, when a young Eric Patrick Clapton requested that Jim Marshall make him a combo amplifier with tremolo that would fit in the boot of his car for use with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
The rest is very much history, the 1962 Bluesbreaker going on to create a whole new, utterly thrilling sound and becoming a go-to combo for many a bluesman ever since. One of those amps that every guitarist must play before they die, preferably with a nice set of humbuckers and a thoroughly sound-proofed room, the Bluesbreaker is a legend that has earned its place at the top table time and time again.
