Marshall JCM 800 Reissue 2203

Tube Amp Head

Marshall sound pure: Model 2203 is regarded as the JCM800 re-issue amp. The head with 100 W master volume is still a sound reference number one, when it comes to honest, open and audible overtones leadsound.

With the New Vintage series Marshall offers the most successful re-issue of the original heads first presented in 1975. This follows faithfully the popular design of the top speaker JCM 800 series born in 1981.

Next to the best reproduction of the original sound, New Vintage series 2203 includes a single feature that is different from the original: FX Loop. It is of course switchable via hardware bypass, so that, when operating without effect device, the sound circuit of the model is available unchanged. Furthermore FX Loop offers level circuit for adaptation to most effect units.

ZZ Top, Guns, Acdc, Led Zeppelin, Kiss etc.
Everything is possible ..
You might need a few good pedals but then it'll crack right.
Maybe the amp is not for heavy styles, but I do not need it for that.
I use the repeater as a hobby musician at home with the Fryette Power Station 2.
Power reduction to room volume in the JCM800 2203 is more than recommended ... OBLIGATION ... although the 2203 has a master volume knob .. in my opinion it sounds much better a bit 'turned up' .. ;-)
The effects line works perfectly and the JCM really does accept all pedals very well.
Attached is the top of a Marshall 1960 AHW 4x12 Box ...
Dream combination ... (even at whisper volume)
The sounds you can create there is really amazing ...
That's exactly what a ROCKSET should sound like!
Rich sound and wonderfully controllable vintage Marshall Roar!
From me a clear buy recommendation and full score!

RAW!
Stefan91, 11.04.2011
You do not need to say much to the amp:
He's just raw, that's rock-sound. He does not make any more and he also does not less and for that I love him ;-)

I play in with bass and amidst full and treble full, presence neutral, preamp on, master 9 o'clock ...

Very handy is the efx loop, since I have still an EQ sit, the range by 2.5 kHz narrow-band dampened and somewhat widerbandiger the range around 125 Hz again strengthened.
