We love this amp! This
is a single channel amplifier without reverb or other
features to muddy the sound. If it's tube tone you
want, this is the amp for you!
The 2203 was the first
Marshall to feature a Master Volume control, allowing
guitarists to crank the preamp for maximum overdrive
while keeping the power amp to reasonable listening
The sound is very throaty,
thanks to the three 12AX7A (ECC83) preamp tubes.
Three band EQ with presence control to dial in your
favorite sound. The only addition to the reissue
was an effects loop, allowing you to insert your
favorite time-based effect (reverb, delay, chorus,
flange, etc.) between the preamp and power amp sections.
In 1975, Marshall unveiled the original model 2203 head produced 100 watts
RMS from four EL34 output tubes (valves). In 1981, Marshall introduced the
JCM800 series version of the 2203, and redesigned the cosmetics, adding the
large logo and grille cloth over the front baffle. The electronics, however,
remained unchanged. Now in 2002, Marshall has re-released this great amp for
21st century guitarists.
You've heard the original
2203 used by artists such as Eddie Van Halen (1981-90
'brown sound' era), Kerry King, and Zakk Wylde. Now
you can own this amp yourself without having to pay
for the cost of a vintage amp.
