Marshall JCM800 2203 Vintage Reissue 100W Valve Amp Head

The Classic '80s Rock Crunch Sound!

Written by

Elliot Stent

A legend in the world of guitar amps, the JCM800 2203 is the 100W all-valve head that kicked off the Marshall JCM revolution and changed the face of modern amplifiers.

Simple yet effective, the distinctive sound of the single-channel JCM800 can be heard on thousands of records. That highly-saturated yet tight distortion which transparently brings out the creaminess of a humbucker, or the vibrancy of a single-coil.

Tribute To A Classic

Marshall's original JCM800 was used by countless rockstars throughout the '80s and '90s, including Billy Corgan, Jeff Beck and Tom Morello; spanning many different genres and proving just how versatile the amp circuit is.

The modern 2203 doesn't seek to expand on the original design too much. Featuring a simple EQ section with preamp gain and master volume controls, the high and low sensitivity inputs also remain; helping you to control your overall gain and level. Just plug into a classic Marshall 4x12" cab and you're away - instant, iconic and 100% authentic rock guitar tone!

Series Effects Loop

Although the original formula remains mostly intact, Marshall thoughtfully added a series effects loop to the Vintage Reissue JCM800. So if you're a stompbox fanatic, the 2203 can serve as an excellent pedal platform - just connect your favourite modulation and time-based pedals through the loop for seamless sonic bliss!

Featuring a true bypass switch, you can engage this to take the loop completely out of the circuit. This ensures that the original tone isn't compromised in any shape or form.
