Marshall JCM800 2203 100w Valve Head
A legend in the world of amps, the JCM2203 is the 100W head that kicked off the Marshall JCM revolution and changed the face of modern amplifiers forever. Simple yet effective, thousands of records feature this sound - that high driven yet tight and controlled distortion that transparently brings out the creaminess of a single cutaway or the character of a Strat.
The modern 2203 doesn't seek to expand on the original design, featuring simply EQ and preamp gain as well as a master volume and high and low sensitivity inputs to help control your overall gain and level. Just plug into a Marshall 4x12 and you're away - instant, classic and 100% authentic rock guitar sound!
Here's what Marshall say about the JCM800 2203
The all-valve JCM800 2203 is one of the most highly respected 100 Watt Marshall heads in the company's long history. Evolving from the legendary 100 Watt 'Plexi' head, it was one of our first amplifiers to feature a Master Volume (MV) control.
The very essence of simplicity, the JCM800 2203 is a one channel all-valve amp with no reverb or built-in effects. Its foolproof interface, distinctive roar and larger-than-life 'edge' immediately set the standard by which all other rock amps were judged and it remained the 'industry benchmark' throughout the entire 16 years of its production life.
Now it's back by popular demand and as with the 1959SLP and 1987X we've added a Series Effects Loop featuring a true bypass switch that takes the loop completely out of the circuit, thus ensuring the original tone isn't compromised in any shape or form.
