The Tone that Defined Heavy Metal

Nothing embodies the essence of Marshall's legendary tone than the JCM800 2203 guitar amplifier head. With just one channel, a 3-band EQ for tone shaping, and 100-watts of power, you've got everything you need to pound out classic tones from crunchy blues to screaming leads and beyond. In this version of the iconic amplifier, Marshall added a series effects loop with true bypass operation, perfect for gigging musicians with lots of pedals. So step up to the professional's choice for outrageous Marshall tone - the JCM800 2203 guitar amplifier head.

Marshall JCM800 2203 All-tube 100-watt Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • The sound of rock
  • Series FX loop
  • JCM800, the professional rocker's choice amp
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.

JCM800, the professional rocker's choice amp

So, who loves the Marshall JCM800 2203? More guitarists than we could ever name, and some of the most famous guitarists ever would be on the list. Angus Young of AC/DC, Kerry King from Slayer, and Zakk Wylde are just a few of the hardest rockers on earth that chose the JCM800 2203 for its tonal tenacity. If you're looking for an amp for clean tones, look elsewhere - if you want maximum tonal aggression, plug into the JCM800 2203.

Marshall JCM800 2203 All-tube 100-watt Guitar Amplifier Head Features:
  • Possibly the most iconic and most-played guitar amplifiers since the late '70s
  • Single-channel operation with 3-band EQ - a simple design that's easy to dial in great tones
  • Incredibly powerful at 100-watts - not an amp that's made to be played quietly
  • Series FX loop lets you switch effects pedals in and out, with true bypass operation for sonic transparency
  • Birch-ply construction is incredibly strong and ready for life on the road
Unleash melodic mayhem with the ultra-aggressive JCM800 2203 all-tube 100-watt guitar amplifier head from Marshall!

Worth it.

Exceedingly loud. The Master/Pre Amp allows me to dial in any guitar to near equal gain regardless of pickups/guitar etc. Very clean when clean and monster gain when wide open. Currently using 1960b cab for all the guru's tell me pushes a bit more low end. Tone stack is quite sensitive. Bottom line this amp should not disappoint.

MONSTER Marshall!!!

Best Marshall ever made. If you´re gonna buy one of theese you need definetly to hook it up to a 1960 Greenbacks cab for the best results. Awesome British tones.

Loud and more LOUD

Sounds best when pushed hard, A little thin at practice level, but take it to the stage and crank it up and it's just wonderful. With my 1960A 4x12 cab there are Enough DB's to injure people
