Slash Plays The AFD100
So, if you’ve been following the story of the Marshall AFD100 guitar amp, you may be interested to know that Slash has finally got his mitts (and his Les Paul) on the prototype version.
The AFD100’s progress has been interesting. Since it was announced at NAMM, interested geeks have been able to follow its progress through design, construction and testing at its dedicated web site. Marshall, over at the AFD site, announced that Slash had just had a chance to play the prototype and they’ve, very kindly, videoed him doing so.
Marshall tell us that the sound on the video is from the camera mic only. Even so, it gives a good indication of the final sound and, to be fair, Slash seems happy.
The AFD100 (or Appetite For Destruction 100) is based on the mythical Marshall that was used by Slash to record Appetite with Guns n’ Roses. In the video you can see Slash run through a number of classic GNR riffs
