This JCM800 reissue, 2203 model (’81–’84) is one of the most highly respected 100 Watt Marshall heads. Originally evolving from the ‘Plexi’ head, the JCM800 was one of Marshall's first amplifiers to feature a master volume control.
The JCM800 2203 remains the essence of simplicity; it has one channel with no reverb. Its purist-pleasing front panel and distinctive roar set the standard by which all other rock amps were judged. And it is still produced because of continued artist use, and by popular demand.
The only modern addition made to the JCM800 2203 is a tonally transparent Series FX Loop.
‘Playing through the 2203 is like flicking a switch for instant metal-hero status: imperious rock tones roll out effortlessly from your fingertips.’ The Guitar Magazine
