In , long before any guitar speakers or"Greenbacks” were ever made, British Rola bought Celestion and the resulting company was known as ‘Rola Celestion Ltd.’ Very Late in the company expanded and opened a second factory in Ipswich Suffolk named the Ditton Works.
His first electric guitar was a white, single-pickup Supro Ozark that his father purchased from Myers Music in Seattle in He parked this guitar with a girlfriend when he joined the army that year, and switched to a cheap Eko or Kay for a while. Hendrix would narrow his choices to the black or white Strats with maple fretboards that were his primary axes for the rest of his career.
Hendrix bought right-handed Strats because he preferred to have the controls on top. He originally tuned to standard pitch, but he eventually tuned down a half-step to ease the strain on his voice. This was supposedly not just for experimentation, but something Hendrix did because he thought the mixed gauges would keep the guitar in tune better. Michael Bloomfield apparently tried some of the Hendrix Strats that Miles owned, and he was also a proponent of the mixed gauge theory.

Origins[ edit ] Site of Jim Marshall’s first shop, now a men’s barber After a successful career as a drummer and teacher of drum technique, Jim Marshall first went into business in with a small shop in Hanwell , London, selling drums, cymbals and drum-related accessories; Marshall himself also gave drum lessons. According to Jim, Ritchie Blackmore , Big Jim Sullivan and Pete Townshend were the three main guitarists who often came into the shop and pushed Marshall to make guitar amplifiers and told him the sound and design they wanted.
These were very popular with guitarists and bass players, but were very expensive. The three guitarists were among the first customers of the first 23 Marshall Amplifiers made. T Prototype’s were produced, in Jim’s words, the “Marshall Sound” was born, although at this time the only involvement Jim had was to sell the amps on a commission basis in his shop.

They are also very collectable due to their association with old 60’s amplifiers mainly Marshall , and guitar icons such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton that were using them back in the day. For a good tonal comparison between various greenback type speakers I can highly recommend listening to this recording by George Metropoulous: However, a lot of people seem to be confused about what the term ‘pre-rola’ actually means, and what a pre-rola speaker is.
The British Rola Company Ltd – established in Celestion Ltd – established in Both were based in UK, and making very similar speaker products throughout the ‘s and ‘s. In , long before any guitar speakers or “greenbacks” were ever made, British Rola bought Celestion and the resulting company was known as ‘Rola Celestion Ltd’. In , as a consolidation of the two companies, Celestion closed production at their factory in Kingston-Upon-Thames and joined British Rola at the Ferry Works factory in Thames Ditton.
In production gradually came to a close at Thames Ditton, with all production from then onwards done at Ipswich. The term ‘pre-rola’ was invented by guitar players. It refers to a period of time when Celestion were using a certain type of label on their greenback speakers. These labels came before the ones with ‘Rola Ipswich’ written on them, so guitar players called them ‘Pre-Rola’ labels to differentiate between them.
A typical ‘pre-rola’ label. Notice the Thames Ditton Surrey address. A typical 70’s ‘rola’ label. Notice the Ipswich Suffolk address.
