The Marshall 2266c 2x12 combo is a fantastic design concept that's been brought to life carefully and with respect. For those Guitarist's looking for truly classic tones, and enough gain to get them through more modern syles of music, the one amp you need without question, is the Vintage/Modern 2266C
This amp would suit blues players down to a tee, as the tones available really have to be heard to be belived. Using the first pre amp blend control called "Body", you'll go from a beautifuly warm clean sound reminicent of old motown/soul/blues records, to a light/mid overdrive that's round and sings like no other. For the times when a little more gain is required, smoothly blend in the "detail" pre amp, and you'll hear the sound fatten up and become rich with harmonics. The 2266c has a power rating of 50w, meaning that its not the loudest amp in the world, but it enables you to get the most from the carefully designed pre amp blend system. It'll Still be loud enough for small/medium sized gigs and would be perfect in the studio or even at home. Its the sort of amp you'd by if your a true tone-hound and enjoy playing with just fingers, guitar & amp & thats it. To be honest, that's all you need.
Here's what Marshall say about the 2266C Vintage Modern 50 Watt 2 x 12 Combo
This is an all-valve single channel electric guitar amplifier with a choice of two 'dynamic ranges' selectable by footswitch. The Low range equates to the performance you would come to expect from a stock vintage Marshall amplifier in terms of tone and available gain. The High range adds an extra preamp valve into the signal path, facilitating those classic hard rock tones of the seventies. Add to this, the ability to dynamically interface with your instrument's Volume and Tone controls and the experience translates into a truly expressive and organic feel in performance.
Two 'frequency selective' Pre-amp Volumes (Gains) - Body and Detail - facilitate greater flexibility of tonal shaping for individual guitars and styles while the power amplifier is heavily based on the first Marshall amplifiers to be produced, with two KT66 output valves yielding that substantial fat and smooth tone. A Mid Boost switch on the front panel fattens the tone even more while a traditional Marshall tone control circuit enables fine tuning of your sound.
A master volume has been included in order to practically manage the output levels at all venues. This is implemented after the 'phase splitter' in order to fully exploit maximum preamp drive when the master is turned down low. A reverb level control mixes the on board 'plate' reverb with the direct signal to whatever degree the player chooses. The reverb can be toggled on and off via the footswitch.
Finally, a series FX loop is provided for those players who wish to use outboard effects to further enhance their sound. Loop levels of -10dB and +4dB are catered for via a rear panel switch as well as the option to completely bypass this feature if it is not required.
The Combo comes fitted with two Celestion G12C 25 Watt greenback speakers enabling stand alone performance. There is facility for using an extension cab if required.
