That's interesting, in what way?
That's news to me. But let's see inside it. Is it based on an ST1 type board? Marshall sometimes is very liberal with the word "reissue".
That was my hope.
I think the master volume JMP's, were the best mass production amps ever built. After the plexi, and before JCM 800. More vintage sounding than a JCM 800, and the inputs and the capacitors were more like the Plexi. They sound sooo good!!!
I dunno, just looks sexy. I can't logically explain it
That is exactly why I made Marshall (mini) Major.
Oh ,...ok, I thought you meant that the Jmp MV reacts differently, (in a better way in your opinion), than the Jcm800 MV,....but you’re talking about aesthetics,...not performance.
Ok good, that advances the discussion.
The JMP's had better jewels inside or some kinda magic going on because compared to an 800, they can sound like from the bygone era, but the 800 sounds less ancient in comparison. Nearly the same guts, but the JMP master I tried, and I only probably played a couple, nearly made me melt on the spot, was sooo goood it was like magic. Hell, it might have had some nice Telefunkin's in there for all I knew. This was a smallish combo in a crowded Chicago music store about 12 years ago.
You can probably get 800's to sound like a JMP, but the little experience I've had, suggests the JMP masters which cost 3 times more than the 800's, are that much better sounding amp. @@ I guess the caps and the resistors were better quality.
[email protected] it, my bad. I just noticed you were focused on the MV side of things. Oops.
Well if you want us to advance the discussion, there's no difference between the JMP and early 80's (horizontal input) JCM 800 2203's, down to the transformers.
The JMP line went up to the year 1984, as there were more Scandinavian builds then (and shared on this forum a few years back). I've only ever seen a 1983 JMP 2203 at the Marshall Museum in Milton Keynes, never for sale online, as you're more likely to find at the latest builds from the year 1981.
My JMP 2204 is in a store on consignment. So far, those who've tried it, Love it.
But can't seem to find a gig for it.
The sound is so great. Way way too much for the MP3'ers of today.
Just curious, how much are you asking, and what store?
Paul's Guitar Shop
Blue Springs MO.
$1500. for the head $500. for the 1960BV
I'd buy that amp. It would be my only amp if they could add the LED clipping from the Jubilee as a switchable option.
You can buy pedals for the led clipping.
Thats right. There was a company selling the jubilee circuit in a pedal. I don't know if they are still available but that would certainly work. Either way I would buy a 2204 JMP reissue without hesitation.
Glad this got bumped. Marshall really needs to do this. Even a limited edition SC20H in a late 70s style head shell. Something!
Damn! Do they ship??
