Rig Review: The JCM800 20w Head

Rig Review:  Marshall Studio Series JCM800

“When I was asked what my favorite amp was in the store, my answer needed no thought.  I chose Marshall’s Studio Series JCM800 head. I have played through most of the amps we have in the electric room, and none of them have impressed me as much as the Studio Series. I love the way it captures the classic sounds from the 100 watt “2203” amp from the late 70’s and 80’s at a volume that doesn’t have to rattle your walls (It still can though by all means). It responds to pedals very well, and with the addition of the effects loop you have a wide range of options for pedal placement. The amp is very dynamic and articulated, it responds to how you play very well, and is a great tool to express your musical ideas with plenty of emotion. The amp sears with a boost pedal in front of it, yet it also calms down and lays back when you roll off of your volume. With all of its power, its versatility, its range and its impact, the Marshall Studio Series JCM800 is my favorite amp in the store currently. “

The original JCM800 2203 changed the face of modern amplifiers forever. Updated and enhanced, the Studio Classic SC20H is here to do it all over again. Replicating our first amp that truly embodied the overdriven sound of heavy rock, the portable SC20H brings timeless sounds to the modern guitarist, with the option to switch between 20W and 5W at the flick of a button.
