This all-valve JCM800 2203 is one of the most highly respected 100 Watt Marshall heads in the Marshall's long history. Evolving from the legendary 100 Watt 'Plexi' head, it was one of our first amplifiers to feature a Master Volume (MV) control.
The very essence of simplicity, the JCM800 2203 is a one channel, all-valve amp with no reverb or built-in effects. Its foolproof interface, distinctive roar and larger-than-life 'edge' immediately set the standard by which all other rock amps were judged and it remained the 'industry benchmarkl throughout the entire 16 years of its production life. Now it's back by popular demand and as with the 1959SLP and 1987X we've added a Series Effects Loop featuring a true bypass switch that takes the loop completely out of the curcuit, thus ensuring the original tone isn't compromised in any shape or form.

Amazingly simple--1 channel, no effects just Marshall sound all the way.
My neighbors already hate me so I really need that master volume knob: I can get all the tone but at a 'reasonable' volume that should get the cops called on me, haha. (Posted on 5/22/2012)
