You can get them at any hardware or auto parts store. I got a bunch from an online electronics supply:

fuses

Make sure you get the same amp rating.

Oo, JCM 900, which model?

And I buy mine from a regular electronics shop, Jaycar (Australia) has them, about 30c each. And I'm sure radio shack would have them, just bring in the current fuses from your amp and ask for like 10 more of each.

Re: Marshall amp fuses where to get?

they shouldn't blow for a really long long time if at all. My JCM 800 2203 from 1981 still has the same fuses in it. It might be a good idea for me to put some fresh ones in just to be sure they're going to work properly, but unless the amp has a problem, or maybe inconsistent voltages from a bad power source, They shouldn't blow.

Like ironlung says, they shouldn't blow. The purpose of a fuse is to sacrifice itself when something else is wrong with the amp. The fuse blows to protect the more expensive components. If you blew a fuse, something is wrong, maybe a bad tube.
