The Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C 50-watt Combo 2 x 12″ Combo is an all-tube single channel amplifier with a choice of two footswitchable “dynamic ranges.” The Low range gives you the tone and gain of a stock vintage Marshall amp. The High range adds an extra preamp tube to the signal path, providing some tasty “classic rock” tones. Go from sparkling chime to compressed overdrive with a tap of the footswitch, and add your favorite outboard effects to the signal path via a series effects loop (with level selector) built into the versatile 2266C.

Versatile preamp, classic power section
Two “frequency selective” preamp voicings (called Body and Detail) give you incredible tonal flexibility, while the power amplifier is based largely on the first Marshall amplifiers to be produced, with two KT66 output tubes yielding a fat and smooth tone. A mid-boost switch on the front panel fattens the tone even more while a taditional Marshall tone control circuit enables you to fine tune your sound.
Master volume and reverb
A master volume gives you the ability to manage this amp’s output effectively at any venue. A reverb level control mixes the onboard “plate” reverb with the direct signal, so you can make the signal as “wet” or “dry” as you wish. The reverb is footswitchable for even more onstage flexibility.
The Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C 50-watt Combo 2 x 12″ Combo includes a series effects loop so you can add outboard gear to your sound. Loop levels of -10dB and +4dB are selectable via a rear panel switch. You can completely bypass the effects loop also.
The 2266C Combo comes fitted with two great-sounding Celestion G12C 25-watt Greenback speakers, giving you high performance and adding the final element to that “Marshall sound.”
