Marshall Vintage Modern 2266H




A cry

test with a standard strat single coil pickups fender on an orange 4x12 cabinet Celestion Vintage 30: it's hot, beautiful, round, full of harmonics.

Scotch on stays on without wanting to leave the store.


It be all good

jcm050's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An amp that sounds, is not to say!"

Marshall Vintage Modern 2266H
Everything has already been said above ...


The manual ... Y needs a? You plug it on and it sounds! God it sounds!


I play mostly rock a little old. I love the sounds of the 90s. So yes, this amp suits me to it! We get a little sound to the Led Zep 'to Slash, through many variations. I play it with a Les Paul Slash signature.


I have a few months. This is my first tube amp. I bought OCCAZ and really, I have no regrets! However, all effects (especially OD, Fuzz, distos ...) do not suit him. Currently, I play with a V3 Firesound and Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde, and frankly, it sounds!
I probably do not have the most suitable firm (a 1936 Lead) but still, I love the sound so I get no regrets!
A remake? Yes! Without a doubt!

Marshall Vintage Modern 2266H
Tete 50Watts in conserne ki me (and frankly it is more than enough) a lamp evidement.grosse particularity it is mounted in KT66 (lamps ki was the basis in the JTM45 but also in amps jimi ..... and those of that time tt
for ki do not know the KT66 approaches the 6L6 family ... so rounder and more moileuse the EL34.

level connectivity: effects loop with a choice of ebrayable level .... footswitch between Exit 8 hp or 16 ohm ...

c the front for sex: Reverb (digital "monstrous" and it avoids the worst of sbouing sbouing spring when people jump on the fons of the scene ...)
presence, low, mid, treble, and equalization for the two knobs tt nomes retai simply magical and body, a switch for the preamp and one for the midboost .... a yes and a master volume .. ...
for some it may seem light but for me more than enough .. c


It has a vintage by its head and made aspet k'elle either single-channel (but with 2 preamp switchable on foot) and modern because k'on has an effects loop for reverb qualitet a digital ... ...

for use is not complicated or can get what you want tt as his (Marshall recess) so the correction is impressive and as I said more retail knob and body are an outright enooooooooooooooorme.c trip Marshall offered the temp with the head, tt sounds are authentic and obtained a recall necessarily hard ....
despite the buttons should be a bit of time to aprivoiser the beast. For my part I have to try several times before going any tale The possibilities offered by this amp ...

important point the creature is designed for the guitarist who likes to get a host with its volume knob on their guitar .... a use, when you lower the knob of the guitar you lower the gain but not the volume. I cry .. so it's good .....


As I said above ia between the enormous possibilities of correction and the various guitar you get everything you want ..
For my part I have connected a stratum, an N4, a tele, a les paul, each time we keep the character of the head but the guitar and the fingers do the rest.

I also plug in a number of cabinet: marshall tv (greenback) as RocknRolla, a marshall 1960 and moves around quite neutral, but is outright war or c in a 4 * 12 Mt in vintage orange 30 with the same person N4 I fear the most brutal of metal, most of soaked blues man, the most Rastafarians of stone ... well .....

I play everything I've got a big group of components of rock, I make caf'concert, and also the ball, I peus do with this head, just choose the right guitar ...


You understood I love everything about this head.
not be afraid to push for what k'elle offers everything a flop in the
and try to have had a lot of different amps, 5150, engl powerball, VHT Pitbull, carvin legacy, all that line6 has ,..... JMP1 rack system, Rocktron, Soldano .....

I say as another guitarist friend bocoup older than me wiser "when you will go around all the amps and you have lost a lot of money you get back or a fender or a marshall .. . he was right the con!!

Euro 1100 has an amp that sounds like this is a miracle

See below.


The configuration is simple but requires time to adapt and understanding to take advantage of every opportunity to the amp (as opposed to a conventional single-channel head).

Indeed, the Vintage Modern series has two separate gain knobs (for the same preamp, normal is the single-channel): Body and Detail
These two settings are acting in opposite directions, the first boosting the treble and one bass.

At first I tended to settle in the opposite direction. But do not be afraid to test all possibilities. One can obtain a range of distos quite impressive.

The other two switches are the important settings Dynamic Range and Mid Boost.

The first is used to boost the amp. In practice it is used as a channel selector (crunch / distortion or bright / crunch according to the settings).
The other, as the name suggests are used to boost the medium. Once engaged, the distos sound much more modern and aggressive.

So like that, it looks a bit complicated but it's worth it to lean on so the possibilities are increased tenfold compared to a conventional single channel head (of the JCM800 has to worry about).

For the note I would not 10/10 because of the digital reverb very inefficient. The same applies to the setting of presence (by habit I rule more than half, but it's very subtle).


With regard to the sound palette I'm more surprised with time. Crunches are instinctively what is intended and yet this amp in High Dynamic Range and Mid Boost can be switched to obtain distos very modern (but not a high gain head of course).

The clean sounds are not far behind. Playing with the settings and volume of the guitar you get a real clear sound which is rather rare in Marshall.

Of course it will be difficult to move from a totally clear to its saturated fat again because of the nature of the single-channel amp. This will play the guitar volume, as the old (it is really that we can leverage 100% of the potential of the head).

In terms of style, I play punk / hardcore and metal mainly (as what) but also blues and old rock from time to time. If it is clear that this amp is perfect for these last two styles (I have an SG standard and a 1960 Vintage baflle is pure happiness), we can totally take things more "edgy" with the head (as long as there is not a follower of the bidding low and gain). For the punk / hardcore is ideal. For the metal, it was more like hitting the heavy stuff and some old-school but everything is possible (a tube screamer and a noise suppressor at the input may be the case).


I use it for several weeks and I appreciate more day by day. I thought I had made a big concession on the possible styles for the benefit of the sound quality but in the end it is not. I play pretty much anything I want with this amp.

I am a fan of plug and play so it suits me perfectly.

I've played on various Marshall (JCM800, 900, 2000, JVM410) and still plays regularly with a Mesa Boogie Solo 50 studio to rehearse. With the JCM800 amp is that I like most. I could not tell if his memory is very close but in return it offers many more possibilities and flexibility than the latter.

Compared to Mesa, I find this amp warmer with more character but also much less metal type.

Compared to a JVM410 there is no comparison so I found this last cold and unusable (unnecessary headroom and blows galore).

I strongly suggest at least the test even though I think it speaks especially to fans of Marshall (conventional heads, Plexi and JCM800 type). I also think mainly it's the best head you may have at this price (about 1100euro)

Ultimately Vintage Modern Series is for those who think the sound is coming primarily from the guitar playing and who do not like gas plants. It's really a vintage head at heart but given up to date (adding an effects loop, reverb digital gain and more possibilities). In short, what everybody expected from Marshall.

The only "fault" that I could find him just the black / purple. It will be the most beautiful effect associated with the baffle, but I would have preferred a classic black. But it's really quibbling.

Otherwise, perfect down the line.

EDIT: Head exchanged after one year. In the end it remains a single channel and it can show its limits in a group. The dynamic range can not act as true second channel. Will have one change in volume when it is switched on and EQ (common to both modes) is no longer optimal.

Nevertheless it remains one of Marshall with the most recent character. A two-channel version would be perfect (even if in the end all the best have always been single channel Marshall: JCM800, JCM900 SLX-, Plexis ...).
