This JCM800 re-issue, 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 our 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 of course 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
