An incredible, blast-from-the-past, hard-rocking half stack.
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.
1960AV 4x12" Cab
Modelled on the 1960A, the 1960AV shares the same excellent build and aural characteristics. The difference is that the 280W 1960AV is loaded with Celestion G12 Vintage 70W speakers. These speakers have a smoother high-end response, which sounds warmer than the G12T-75s in the 1960A.
The mid range is well defined, providing plenty of chunk without getting too boomy, which lends itself to heavier, more aggressive rock genres. It has been said that the lower-frequency response of the 1960AV has a "tuneful" quality.
