Sunn Amp, YouTube

Being a major musical influence like Jimi was/is guides those that choose to follow in his footsteps (in a manner of speaking) will also buy the same products that Jimi did and dealers in amps, guitars etc... love that.Jimi used a Fender Stratocaster and initially started out using Sunn amplifiers, however; the only problem then was that they couldn't handle his style of play it was a little too strenuous so they'd blow out.

As in the video you will see below he eventually switched to the Marshall brand and that move pushed other rock guitarists to go buy them. Jimi is quoted as saying, "I love my Marshall amps, I am nothing without them."
