Classic tube tone from the days of huge guitar!

The all-valve JCM800 2203 is one of the most highly respected 100W Marshall heads in the company's long history. Evolving from the legendary Plexi head, it was one of the first Marshall amps to feature a master volume control. The essence of simplicity, the JCM800 is a one-channel, all-valve amp with no reverb or effects. Its easy control panel, 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 just like the 1959SLP and 1987X it has a Series Effects Loop with true bypass that takes the loop completely out of the circuit ensuring the original tone isn't compromised in any shape or form.

Marshall JCM800 2203 Vintage Series 100W Tube Head Features:

  • Four EL34s in the power stage
    Three ECC83s in the preamp
    True bypass series FX loop
    3-band EQ
    Presence control

  • Good reissue

    As reviewed by Tietjen on 10/6/2006

    Marshall JCM 800 2203x. Great amp sounds awesome. Not like any vintage JCM 800 I've played but it still sounds good. Honestly, I'd put it on a backline ryder any day... the cleans are sweet, the distrotion is grand. I just wish it were 2 channels and about -50 db quieter. No tremolo, no reverb, don't need it.

  • Larger than life tone!

    As reviewed by Moore5150 on 8/24/2006

    There are not a lot of bells and whistles on this bad boy compared to many other amps. However, if you are looking for authentic Marshall crunch this is your beast. Only one channel so you have to tweek it a bit to get different tones, but there are a number of great sounds in here for the discerning player. From heavy metal chunk to classic rock crunch to a surprisingly good clean tone, this amp can cover the bases. This is also one of the loudest 100 watt amps I have ever played. 100% pure Marshall, one of the best sounding modern amp that this company has ever produced.

  • the thickness

    As reviewed by brian. on 11/3/2008

    holy loud. this amp is sweet for anything from blues to hareder classic rock. in order to get into the heavier end of music you have to turn the pre-amp gain all the way up. when you do this, naturally you lose a little definition. so boosting is with a clean boost is the way to go also replacing the pre-amp tubes wont hurt. all in all and awesome amp.
