The Marshall 2266C Combo is part of the Marshall Vintage Modern Series and is a 50 Watt, 2×12″, all-valve single channel amplifier with a choice of two ‘dynamic ranges’ selectable by footswitch. The Low range gives the performance you would associate with a stock vintage Marshall amplifier in terms of tone and gain. The High range adds an extra preamp valve into the signal path,which enables guitarists to access those classic hot rodded marshall tones from the seventies.
The amp features a master volume and plate reverb which can also be switched on and off by the foot switch. The Marshall 2266C Vintage Modern comes fitted with two Celestion G12C 25 Watt greenback speakers enabling stand alone performance. There is facility for using an extention cab if required.
There is no denying this amp has plenty to offer and gives you access to a wide range of Marshall tones. If your looking for that hot rodded Marshall tone from the seventies however then I’d urge you to splash out a few more bucks and investigate the Reeves Super 78 which for me has far more to offer.
