Legendary guitarist Slash has officially moved away from Marshall and signed with Magnatone. This marks the first time in over 30 years that Slash is collaborating with a new amplifier company.


It all started when Slash bought several Magnatone M80s as well as a Twilighter Stereo for use both live and in the studio. Following a Magnatone factory visit and many conversations with Magnatone GM, Rod Washburn, the vision for the relationship was solidified. With this partnership, Magnatone and Slash will collaborate to create the new Slash Signature 100-watt amplifier and 4 x 12” Speaker cabinet. The legendary guitarist will co-design the new models with long-time Magnatone engineer and tube amp guru, Obeid Khan.

“I used a Magnatone 50w M-80 in the studio earlier this year and was blown away by how it sounded. Since then, I’ve been working with Magnatone on a 100w version of the M-80 and I absolutely love what they have come up with. It’s killer,” said Slash.

“We could not be more excited that Slash embraced our quality engineering and commitment to tone excellence as the platform for designing his next generation of Signature amplifiers,” added Washburn.

“We are thrilled to welcome Slash to Magnatone and with his signature tone and style, our Master Collection of models will be taken to the next level,” said Ted Kornblum, President & CEO, Magnatone.

Expect more details to be announced soon around the forthcoming Slash Signature 100-Watt Model, due out in early 2024. In the meantime, check out what Magnatone has to offer here.
