Separate names with a comma.
It’s a very transparent attenuator, IMO. It’s also Johan Segeborn’s attenuator of choice.
Yeah, I have black towels over all my amp heads and 4x12 cab. Not great curb appeal, but they prevent dust.
I didn’t notice the cracks on the vent. The handle on my 2203 looks exactly like that. Tarnishing, too.
I’d say cosmetically this thing is in...
800 prices have certainly skyrocketed in the last couple years, but $3,800 is plain silly.
Definitely looks like a decent example, even if overpriced.
Me, too. It’s definitely a term that’s often misused, especially in guitar and amp listings on eBay and Reverb.
I’ve had a JMP 1987 (year ‘76) for years but was rarely able to crank it up. I almost sold it because I just couldn’t use the amp the way it was...

This Reverb seller lists his...
I also have a 1987 2204. It was far too bright when I bought it so I clipped the bright cap. Now it sounds amazing. Congrats!

I would say it’s very transparent. It doesn’t color the tone that I can tell. I use it to boost overdriven amps.
I prefer using a Boss SD-1 as a clean boost. Does wonders.
Doesn’t sound like any I own.
I also have an 1981 2203 with the original factory GE 6550s, and the spring retainers on your amp look identical to the ones on mine. I’m guessing...
Richie’s an amazing player, and the perfect replacement for KK.
Congrats on the new cab! Bob does really solid work, and I wouldn’t think about going anywhere else if I needed a new custom cab.

I have a JCM800 2203, 2204 and JMP 1987. And I still love my JCM900 4100. It’s a great amp. It doesn’t have quite the punch the others do, but it...
