Hello all, My TSL100 has been on the fritz since July 4th and getting a replacement board has been impossible. While parts are coming I began thinking about getting a JVM. I got a bonus at work that coupled with the value of my repaired TSL would pay for one so I began looking. Instead I found a 2203KK on Reverb and not expecting the offer to be accepted I offered $1200 shipped for it as I've always wanted to try an 800 since that's the tone I really want from an amp (just with some more gain). Given how rarely these are available I think it was a steal at the price I paid. I don't care for Slayer but do think Kerry King has great tone and this amp seemed like it should be the exact tone I want plus there is the legend of the 800's ballsy sound that supposedly modern Marshall's don't replicate even if they get the tone close. It should arrive Tuesday. Is there anything in particular I should examine or look/listen for with this or any typical 800 reissue that could be of concern? Anyone have opinions on this head and/or how it should compare to the TSL or a JVM as far as a good Marshall metal tone (ala Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Power Trip, etc)? I love the tones I got from my TSL but the one it never could do proper was that snarl/growl in the mids I really crave. Even tried a 10 band EQ but it just wouldn't get that sound. I have a Black Arts Toneworks Black Forrest overdrive I can hit the front with if I don't enjoy the "Beast mode" and find the stock 2203 lacking in gain.
