Upto Need you opinion on this JCM 800

Hi Everyone,

Im going to look at this JCM 800 2210 next week.
However, I cant tell what year it is on the pictures because the letter is scratched out.
I asked the owner if he knew and replied:

'At the bottom of the scratch, I see the straight line. From the way scratched, my guess is T or Y'.

Can you guys, especially those with JCM 800 experience, give these pictures a look and tell what you think the year is?!

Thanks for looking.

With that model JCM800 the year is pretty immaterial. If you like it get it if the price is reasonable

Thanks for the input rob.
Can you go a little into what you mean by immaterial?
Price is 1100.

Thanks again!

That model didn't have a better or worse year, they are all pretty equal

1100 what dollars, pounds, franks? and 1100 anything is over-priced for that amp. Where do you live?

Out of curiosity, why do you want to know the year? It isn't as if it makes a difference in the value, it is just a 2210, after all. They didn't differ between production years, and they aren't even the "desirable" JCM800s.

I think it is a travesty that they even called the a JCM800, they're nothing like a real JCM800.
The first two digits of the serial number is the year.

Hey robb!

Do you think the year for a 2203 or 2204 really matters?
say one from 1984 to a newer one?

thanks!

The pre 84 ( vertical inputs) is what is the most wanted. I prefer the JMP 2204/2204, it is the same amp as the JCM800 2203/2204 but it is in the Plexi head shell and was available in '78 I think.

The 84 models and up were horizontal inputs and marshall started cheeping out on costs

I don't really have a preference between the 2 besides what I already stated. I actually prefer my JCM2000 DSL100 to any 800

It does matter with the 2203/2204. The vertical input ones had better transformers, more power supply filtering and were simply made better. The horizontals were the victims of cost cutting. They're still a decent amp but the verticals are just better.


My favorite is the vertical 2203. A 2203 can be run as a 2204 by pulling two tubes. So even though I'd run it as if it was a 2204, I'd rather the 2203.
