NAD - Early '80s Marshall JCM800 2203

    I sold my Vintage Modern 2266C and bought a JCM 800 2203 and a 2x12 cab from a friend of mine. We managed to meet up today so I've got the beast home now.

    The first letter in the serial number (S00151) points to this being an '84 model, provided I am reading the serial number correctly. But I thought there should be a model number too, which doesn't appear on the back panel of this one so I may be reading the serial number incorrectly. Whatever year it is from, this thing sounds glorious - but moronically loud!!!

    It does need new knobs, and he has replacements, but he forgot to bring them today. No big deal, I can get them later and put them on then.

    The cab is a PRS cab that he had new grill cloth put on (and matching cloth on the amp), and it contains two G12H-75 Creamback speakers.

    I got both the amp and the cab for $1400, so I am more than happy with the purchase.

    My apologies for the crappy picture, but my proper camera is refusing to recognize even brand new batteries as having any charge so I had to resort to using the camera on my cellphone.

    Here is my new rig:

    The guy next door is a drummer. If he doesn't like it, too bad.

    You’re not going to play any of that “rock” through it, are you?
    I certainly hope not.;)
