The intriguing history of the Marshall amp used by Slash on AFD and its subsequent disappearance has now passed into rock folklore. Widely believed to be a hot-rodded, 100 Watt, pre-master volume model from the early 70s, this legendary amp was hired specifically for the "Appetite" sessions in 1986. Eager to hold on to the amplifier, Slash told rental company S.I.R. that it had been stolen, only to have it "stolen" back a year later during tour rehearsals. Ever since there has been little to no word on the whereabouts of that mysterious 100 Watt head, synonymous with a true rock icon and one of greatest rock albums of all time.
Now Slash and Marshall Amplification have joined forces to re-create that revered ?"Appetite Tone" with the announcement of the new Marshall AFD amplifier. Fans around the world have been tracking the development of this incredible project online, from drawing board to stadium and are waiting with bating breath.
