    They did make these in tan, too. It might not be faded.

    My 85 1960a is faded like that, pulled the back off and looked for loose strands on the inside. They will be black as night I’ll bet. that’s what I found anyway

    That is just a straight-up badass rig. Congrat's!
    Screamin' for a vintage Boss OD-1/SD-1, TS808, TS9, or some type of preamp.

    Ecc83(m)..just a different description for 12AX7...(British I believe)..the "m" stands for medium gain...slightly less gain than a standard 12AX7...IMHO.....j. dain

    The Ei ECC83 and Ei ECC82 preamp tubes that I have say YUGOSLAVIA (all in white), like the power tube, and not Made In Yugo. Both are single getter long plates, but there are short plates as well. Perhaps if the power tube would have had a circled Ei above Yugoslavia it would then indicate Ei.

    my JCM 800 2205 k.jpg I have a 2205 that has the same grill cloth color. I'm not gonna mess with it since it genuinely aged or perhaps is a rare grill cloth possibly.

    It was shown by
    Mitchell Pearrow that Marshall MOSFET had that same color "amp baffle" cloth cover as your 2204. I did buy a MOSFET but the owner dropped the price way down because he replaced it with black vinyl tolex and no Marshall logo. Once I got it, I replaced it with black cloth and added the logo. So I have no idea what color the original owner had. But here's the thing: I was watching 2 other MOSFET amps for sale at the time (and saved pics of each), and one had a black and one brown cloth. Since they were made relatively the same time, could it be that Marshall used 2 suppliers one whose cloth faded, or purposely did they make 2 versions ? Where's Sherlock Holmes when you need him lol

    Nice score. Always wanted an 800 head. I had a 2x12 combo and really liked it allot.

    I had to review what MOSFET stood for. If interested, MOSFET stands for Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor. It's a kind of transistor that clips gradually when overdriven, as most tubes do.
