A monster of a head, and a beast of a cab make for a killer 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.
1960B 4x12" Cab
The 1960B cabinet has a straight front. This means that all four speakers face out in the same direction, which gives the 300 Watt 1960B a more focused sound. Because the 1960B isn't angled, it has a larger cabinet which has a lower resonant frequency. The effect of this is that the 1960B produces a slightly thicker sound.
The focused sound and enhanced lower mids of the 1960B make it a favourite of many professional players. Together, the 1960A and the 1960B make the revolutionary and iconic Marshall stack.
