LegendaryTones HOT MOD V2 EVO

The Hot Mod V2 Evo Standard Wired: For original JMP and JCM 800 series 2203/2204/1959/1987. The standard wired model also works for the early reissue 1959/1987 models without the factory-installed effects loop. Choose the standard wire option if you use the new Marshall studio series SC20H/SV20H heads as well!

The Hot Mod V2 Evo Reverse Wired: For JCM 800 2203x reissue and JCM 8002203zw, as well as 1959SLP/1987X plexi reissue models w/factory effects loops (from years 2002 onward) use reversed triode wiring.



With the HOT MOD V2 EVO (HMV2E), because the increased gain is created inside the amp rather than through an external pedal booster running in front of the input, the noise level of the HMV2E is dramatically reduced even at higher gain settings compared to when using an overdrive or EQ pedal used as a clean boost. Additionally, because of the HMV2E design focus was articulation with sustain, your signal can still clean up well by rolling back your guitar’s volume control. And if for some reason you still wanted more gain from an external pedal to shape or increase the signal gain further, you can still do it. You likely won’t need to, but go ahead and hit the front end of your amp with a hotter signal and the HMV2E will take it just fine!

The Marshall JMP and JCM 800 series amps from the 1970s and 1980s are legendary. And back in the day, they were getting hot rodded in numerous ways and indeed were a fantastic platform to work from. The quality of the transformers and components used in those classic amps was unparalleled. Sad to say that it’s true that they don’t make them like they used to. Now you can get many of the same high-gain Marshall tones with the simple and easy-to-use HMV2E. With the quality build and components (transformers, capacitors) found in those original early Marshall JMP and JCM 800 series amps and pure tube signal and tone that’s straight-forward and organic, the HMV2E is a great way to modernize and get the most out of your amp.
