I just build a jcm800 (2203) mod about a month ago. It's easily one of my favorites to date.

I think the Sacred Groove MK22 is the closest to a stock JCM800....

Having said that, Mashall+ nails it plus a modded Jose channel

Vishnu can do it very well despite going under the radar much of the time....

I consider the 2203 and 2204 to be standard JCM800 tones....

I had a 1980 JMP 2203... but I never really enjoyed it that much. It could do a good Guns n Roses tone boosted with a Boss GE-7, and the early Metallica tone boosted with a Tube screamer or RAT... but it had zero clean compression, was hard to play, and was too low gain for me.. hardly to believe people are searching 'that JCM800' tone. I figured maybe people are after a modded jcm800 tone..

it's a classic mid gain amp with great tone and harmonics, overtones, etc....clean to heavy crunch.

I'm not looking for brutal gain. The 800 is used by lots of non metal & classic metal folks. I'm not in for the nu metal or the like. I'm just a rock and roller

I like my JFM800 module a lot. I think it is a very good representation of the JCM800 tones.

I have one on order, which I should be picking up this week. I've had my fair share of experience with JCM800s, so I'm curious to see how it stacks up!
