Marshall JCM 800 Reissue 2203

19

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.

Unquestionably a classic amp!
and.con 14.06.2022
Had to wait a long time to get my hands on one of these, but it was certainly worthwhile. I paired it with a Marshall MR1960 B cab.

The amp produces sparkling clean sound, I really cannot stress this enough. Most people rightfully so associate these amps with high gain music due to its many ambassadors throughout the years, but I do think that this amp really excels in the clean and crunch spectrum.

That said, paired with the right boost/overdrive pedal at the front of the high gain input with the pre amp on 10 and the right guitar pickups; it turns into a high gain amp with impeccable sound clarity and modern sound.

When I am using the amp as a pedal platform I always use the low input and it works perfectly with fuzz pedals.

The only downside is the effects loop, it is noisy and it thins the amps sound. Did not find a solution to this at any volume (other than isolate it with the provided switch at the back side of the amp). If the effects loop is not a priority for you, then this is a 5 star amp! One would expect though that Marshall would have already sorted this out.

One very nice trick

Not a feature-laden amp, although the loop works quite well and is an excellent addition to the reissue. A nice delay in the loop (SDE-3000) and an SD-1 up front (distortion off, level maxed), and it is the voice of 80s rock and beyond.

Da geht alles..
Man braucht vielleicht ein paar gute Pedale aber dann "kracht" es richtig.
Vielleicht ist der Amp nicht für Heavy Styles, aber dafür brauche ich ihn auch nicht.
Ich verwende den Verstärker als Hobbymusiker zuhause mit der Fryette Power Station 2.
Leistungsreduzierung auf Zimmerlautstärke beim JCM800 2203 ist mehr als empfehlenswert ...PFLICHT...obwohl der 2203 einen Mastervolume Regler besitzt ..meine Meinung nach klingt er wesentlich besser ein "bisschen" aufgedreht ..;-)
Der Effektweg funktioniert tadellos und der JCM nimmt wirklich alle Pedale sehr gut an.
Angeschlossen ist das Topteil an eine Marshall 1960 AHW 4x12 Box...
Traum Kombination ...(sogar bei Flüsterlautstärke)
Die Töne was man da erzeugen kann ist wirklich erstaunlich ...
Genau so soll ein ROCKSET klingen!
Detailreicher Sound und wunderbar steuerbarer Vintage Marshall Roar!
Von mir eine klare Kaufempfehlung und volle Punktzahl!

Un monstre!

Le pure son Marshall!
Robuste, finition impeccable...
Un seul canal, et un maximum de puissance.
Je ne le recommanderais toutefois pas pour les guitaristes ayant besoin d'un son clair, ni pour ceux jouant dans des petits évènements. En effet, une fois le master volume sur 1,5 (via un 4x12), on entre directement dans une autre dimension.
Prévu pour du pur rock 'n roll, ou tout style demandant un merveilleux son gras et chaleureux!
Avec un leger boost, on arrive dans des niveaux de hi-gain avec énormément de dynamiques, que cela soit en bass, en medium ou en treble.
Les potards sont également très réactifs.
Du pur bonheur, invincibilité garantie!
