Guitar Amp Refrigerators

The 'Marshall Fridge' Adaptation is a Music Lover's Dream

— March 25, 2012 — Art & Design
The guitar amp company Marshall has taken its designs to the next level with their new 'Marshall Fridge.' An all-out dream for band members and virtually anyone who likes to rock out (even if this is solely figurative), this freezing cold storage unit will be an incredible addition to garages and music studios alike.

The Marshall emblem is a huge symbol in the music world and has come to be associated with an array of legendary recording artists. By emblazoning the authentic Marshall logo upon the fridge, the brand is making a direct association between their trusted company name and an emerging interior design niche.

In addition to being a token of rock history, the Marshall Fridge is also sensible. With a 4.4cu ft. interior, an overabundance of band fuel may be stored inside.
