          I've owned several 2203s....incredible amps.. but honestly none of them could touch the 2204 I had and gigges with in the mid 90s -it was special.

          I sold it like an idiot because I thought I had to have 50 more watts.

              I've tried to relocate that exact amp many times.

                Funny cuz i got my first JMP in 1982 which was a 79/2204, gigged 3 States for 11 years and always needed/wanted a 2203 but the 2204 got the job done & managed to rupture my rt eardrum in da process.. After Flannel killed rock i spent da 90's running a Business & raising 3 kids. Nowdays impossible to find a band worth af. The 50 watt JMP's need to go flat out to deliver the goods which will hurt ya.

                  Ever did I dream about these amps.

                  I owned a "5210" marshall, a two channel transistor based ,50 watt combo. It was amazing, has the finest overdriven tones (at any volume) and a spring reverb to die for.

                  One day- I'd like to try a JCM800 half stack with a tube screamer infront . because it was the sound I was growing up listening to.
                  If somethings important- send a PM. I might be offline for long periods. Rock on!!!

                    I had a 25th anniversary 2204 and it was awesome. I have a 2203x but I miss the 2204.

                      This guy has a collection of vids of a collection of old amps https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hDl139NYW2s

                      His orange & bassman vids were equally impressive.
