Who we are

We are A.M.P Services

A.M.P Services are based in Penzance, Cornwall and run by Jimi Marshall, sometimes outsourcing or collaborating with other audio engineers and artists depending on the size of the project.

Jimi started his journey into sound engineering when he volunteered at ‘The Bunker’ recording studios in The Lizard, Cornwall in the year 2000. He fell in love with the studio environment and in 2002 went to study Sound Engineering at Truro College, Cornwall. After 2 years there, he continued his study by progressing to a 4 year BSC (Hons) degree in Sound Technology at Glamorgan University, Glamorgan, Wales which he graduated from in 2008. Whilst studying he worked as a part-time in-house assistant engineer at busy touring venue ‘The Point’ in Cardiff.

After 6 months in India where he volunteered at ‘Skore Music’ studios in return for bed and board, he moved to Bristol where he started mixing bands in various venues including ‘Loco Klub’ (The Invisible Circus’ venue), ‘Mr wolfs’, ‘Cube cinema’, ‘The Canteen’, ‘Lakota’, ‘The Golden Lion’, ‘The Thekla’, ‘Start the Bus’ amongst others. He also set up a small home studio where he produced tracks for vocalists and recorded some smaller bands. He has worked with lots of bands/performers over the years including ‘My Bad Sister’, ‘A Sweet Niche’, ‘Chainska Brassica’, ‘The Inexplicables’, ‘Kerry Anne Jangle’, The Super 8’s’, ‘Morlove and Moonbeam’, ‘Press Play’ and many others in both the live and studio environment.

In 2014 he moved to Lewes near Brighton to work as in-house engineer in a venue/rehearsal space/recording studio called ‘Cafe Des Artistes’ where he worked in both the studio and live environments for several years until the area got redeveloped and the building got demolished.

Recently returning to his home county of Cornwall to be closer to family and the sea, Jimi is currently operating remotely due to an underlying health condition and Covid-19, but is hoping to open a professional studio in the West Pendeen area in the not too distant future.
