The Marshall JCM800 Super Bass Series amplifier uses:
Note: Due to the shortage of EL34 valves around the time of production, some of these amps were fitted with 5881 power valves instead. If this is the case you will normally find a sticker on the inside of the amp that advises you of this. Best to take a quick look inside your amp before placing an order.
If you have EL34 power valves fitted we offer three options for the Marshall JCM800 Bass Series amplifier:
The Marshall EL34 is also an excellent choice for this amplifier and many of our customers are loyal to the Marshall brand. If you have these in your amp now and love the sound then this is the set for you.
The standard JJ EL34 valve has been around for many years and is very popular. Great tone and perfect for rock and blues.
The JJ EL34 Mark II is for those who want the ultimate in tone and power. Whilst they cost a few pounds more they are the next generation in EL34 valves. They deliver outstanding bass, a very smooth mid-range and extended life. JJ wouldn’t make a Mark II version if you couldn’t hear a difference.
You can order these valves singly, the power valves as matched quads or a complete kit. However, we strongly urge you to change all your valves at the same time.
It’s the cheapest way of getting your amp sounding its very best.

About the amp
The JCM 800 Series was launched in 1981. As the name suggests it was not one amp but a complete series comprising both lead and bass amps. As mentioned above, the standard power valve set fitted was 4 x EL34, but some amps were fitted with 4 x 5881 power valves instead. So take a quick look inside your amp before ordering.
