In this episode we will demo a JMP 2203 100w head from 1979.
Compared to the older 1959 Super lead circuit, this head has a master volume and an additional gain stage in the preamp.
The circuit of this amp is the exact same one that was then used then in the early JCM800 heads.
We only used one pedal during the demo when you can see it on screen. We used a J Rockett Archer as "boost (http://rockettpedals.com/product/archer-overdrive-boost/). This pedale is a Klon Centaur clone.
We used as little post fx as we could, no EQ, no compression:
- the room reverb is from the Torpedo live.
- we applied a very transparent limiter on the master bus at the end to achieve an acceptable volume in the video.
The sound you hear on this video is the exact one we were hearing on our monitors while tracking it.
