Marshall JCM800 Studio Head

Reviving a Legendary Sound:

The Marshall JCM800, born in 1981 as the 2203 and 2204, quickly became the sonic embodiment of heavy guitar. Its cascaded gain stages produced a distinctive roar that reverberates through the annals of hard rock and heavy metal history. However, the classic JCM800 and 900 amps were known for needing stage-level volumes, typically at arena-sized venues, to truly shine. Fortunately, Marshall has meticulously adapted this iconic amplifier for modern gigging and studio musicians. The JCM800 Studio Head offers a reduced 20W output, a versatile 5W low-power mode, and a switchable effects loop while preserving the timeless tone and response of a high-gain tube amp.

Classic Tubes, Modern Features:

This amp retains the beloved tube configuration of 3 x ECC83/12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 x EL34 power tubes, sharing controls with its iconic siblings in the 800/900 series. You'll find the classic Marshall TMB tone control with Presence, enabling fine-tuning of the power amp's high-end content. By balancing the Preamp and Master Volume controls, you can explore a wide range of gain options, particularly when switching between the High and Low gain inputs. A series effects loop allows seamless integration of your effects pedals while preserving your core tone, and the DI out on the back provides versatile connectivity options with external gear. If you crave the rich, high-gain sound of Marshall but find 100 or 50 watts excessive, the Marshall Studio Classic is here to satisfy your needs.
