The Jam singer-songwriter praised his invention of the Marshall Amplifier 50 years ago.
Speaking on Radio 4's Front Row, Weller said he first used a Marshall amp that was "at least 40 years old and still sounds fantastic".
"For me it's the exactly right amp for the job," the star added. "I don't know if anyone's particularly improved on it, to be honest."
Jim Marshall, dubbed the 'Father of Loud', has had his amps used by some of the biggest names in heavy metal rock.
Last month, artists including Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Whitesnake and The Cult were confirmed for a 50th anniversary show for Marshall at Wembley Arena on Saturday, September 22.
