Marshall

A legendary half-stack that rocks as hard today as it did many tours ago.

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.

1960BV 4x12" Cab
Modelled on the 1960B, the 1960BV shares the same excellent build and aural characteristics. The difference is that the 280W 1960BV 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 1960B.

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 1960BV has a "tuneful" quality.
