If you're looking for the perfect marriage of classic, vintage rock tones with modern feature and levels of gain, your search is over!

The Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 50 Watt Head is an all-valve single channel amplifier with a choice of two dynamic ranges selectable by footswitch. The Low range equates to the performance you would come to expect from a stock vintage Marshall amplifier in terms of tone and available gain. The High range adds an extra preamp valve into the signal path, facilitating those classic hard rock tones of the seventies. Add to this the ability to dynamically interface with your instrument's Volume and Tone controls and the experience translates into a truly expressive and organic feel in performance.

Two frequency selective Pre-amp Volumes (Gains) - Body and Detail - facilitate greater flexibility in tone shaping for individual guitars and styles while the power amplifier is heavily influenced by the first Marshall amplifiers to be produced, with two KT66 output valves yielding that substantial, fat and smooth tone. A MID Boost switch on the front panel fattens the tone even more while a traditional Marshall tone control circuit enables fine tuning of your sound.

A master volume has been included in order to practically manage the output levels at all venues. This is implemented after the phase splitter in order to fully exploit maximum preamp drive when the master is turned down low. A reverb level control mixes the on board plate reverb with the direct signal to whatever degree the player chooses. The reverb can be toggled on and off via the footswitch.

Finally, a series FX loop is provided for those players who wish to use outboard effect to further enhance their sound. Loop levels of —10dB and +4dB can be controlled via a rear panel switch as well as the option to completely bypass this feature if it is not required.

The cosmetics are also a carefully crafted hybrid of old and new styles — made even more dramatic by the deep purple vinyl that covers the entire series.

THE BEST AMP I'VE EVER OWNED.

By Brother Bob

from Lake Dallas, Tx.

Comments about Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 Tube Amp Head:

Thanks Marshall for such a great amp. 2 years sure go fast when you play such a fine amp. I can play all genres of guitar music. I make believers out of non-believers when they try it out while I manipulate the tones. I can't wait to try a Hemidia Zen Drive on it. If Marshall could figure out how to minimalize the volume jump from Vintage to Modern, I believe they would not be able to keep up supplying the demand. It's all in the KT66 tubes and fingers. Thanks Marshall.

Guitarist Ear Candy.

By Brother Bob

Comments about Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 Tube Amp Head:

This amp has to be played . Words are hard to express what I feel when I turn this marvel on. Each channel is its own little world--blues ,classic rock, and country/ jazz on the 1st . Stomp that foot switch and forge your own style of the aforementioned or journey into very modern, good headroom territory. This amp will mate lovingly with all kinds of pickups. Sustains for days with my Les Paul. It's my fourth 50watter and the 2266 is louder than them all. Tonal bliss for two years now. Not one problem. Bravo!

Tone, tone and more tone

By BluesBreakerBen

from Chicago

Comments about Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 Tube Amp Head:

This is not a real high gain amp, but the overdrive button gets you fairly close to the "modern" sound. Clean "vintage" setting is quiet and very very tasty: the best sound I have heard with P-90s, except maybe for a Tweed Bassman. Unusual two-knob tone controls make this amp fairly easy to adjust: not a lot of dials to screw around with. The color is a deep purple so won't match your black cabinets perfectly. The stock 4x12s have Celestion Greenbacks in matching purple levant covering. Very well built but I have not fooled around with after-market re-tubing, etc., so I can't tell how easy this is to maintain.
