There is such a thing? I thought all the JCM leads where single channel and only had a clean channel. Do they make them that have two channels?

I am dead set on getting a Marshall, I am looking at JVM210H. Thoughts on this amp?

That was the first all tube amp I played and I don't think I go back to owning another solid state amp. It is night and day.

The first couple of JCM800 models were single channel amps. 2205 had two channels, the modern reissue of 2203 I'm guessing is a single channel amp. Would be kind of wierd if it wasn't.

I'm sure the JVM is great! Now I havn't heard the 2xx series but the 4xx sound great, it's Marshall all the way and the idea is to be able to key in older models so the JCM800 is in there somewhere.

I can say from first hand experience there is such a thing. I used to own a 2205 head. This was a 50 watt two channel amp. The lead channel was historic however, the clean channel was somewhat forgettable. It was a amazing head and I wish I wouldn't have sold it to get money for college. However, now I have a JCM 2000 DSL and I think it's everything the JCM 800 2205 was and so much more. Don't get fooled into thinking that Marshall quit making great amps after the JCM 800 series. I remember when the JCM 900's came out and I thought I would love to have that gain but the missing bottom end just didn't do it for me. This is where the JCM 2000's made up ground. Problem is they didn't make the footswitchable part of the amp like the JVM. But in terms of pure tone for the money you can't go wrong with a JCM 2000!!! Also, remember 50 watts in a tube head is all you'll ever need. Unless, your playing in front of 10.000 fans. If that's the case you won't be on this message board.
