The body is a textured, rubberised case somewhere between an amp case and a tyre.

The volume control is a scroll wheel, clad in old-school brass. Set into the black body, the brass fittings hark back to the style of classic Marshall amps.

Music is so important the London boasts two headphone jacks and a dedicated brass button to launch your music player of choice, called the M Button.
