The sound of rock
Plug your favorite guitar into the all-tube, 100-watt JCM800 2203, hit a chord, and hold on - that tingling behind your eyeballs means you've tapped into the tone that shaped modern rock. The JCM800 really earned its reputation in the late '70s and early '80s in stadiums worldwide. When people talk about the Marshall tone, there's a good chance they're describing a JCM800 2203 plugged into a full stack, completely cranked. It's wild, unruly, and certainly not appropriate for late-night band practices, but it's 100% rock 'n' roll.
Series FX loop
Consider yourself lucky, because this JCM800 2203 sports a feature not found on the original JCM800 - a series effects loop! And thanks to true bypass operation, your slew of pedals won't color the tone of the JCM800 2203 one bit.
