    My Boog copy kills!

    I think we got a case of hit and miss by Marshall when building. Some are really good? Many were lemons.

    However if this dude picks up a guitar again I hope his finger nails fall off.

    Keed!

    love the tone of my DR. I paid like $300 or so for the half stack.
    great money spent.

    They aren't that bad. You will get a dept store Marshall tone in a pretty well made amp. I used one for a few yars until i discovered the Holy Grail 6100...............

    Fuck yeah! I'd say.

    My Bugera 4100 DR rips. I had a Marshall the same years ago. Very proud of the tones I get. Much fun!

    I love Marshall high mids, articulation and bite.

    I love Oranges low mids, articulation and bite...as it is a bit restrained comparatively.

    My 93’ jcm 900 el 34 2100 is one of my favorite if not my favorite Marshall out of 10 different models. I would put it up against anything!It’s thick ,rich and sounds like vh1 with a variac,no shit.

    Love the DR 4100, this topic has been discussed to death across many forums, half love it, half hate it; what I take from it (and experience with my own Jcm 900/4100) is that if it’s set up and biased correctly it will produce some great Marshall tones - just not jmp/2203 - what its frequently compared to and in the shadow of.

    Ever since I got my 900 Ive been repeatedly told how bad they are. Especially since mine is supposedly the worst of the bunch, the dreaded Dual Reverb.

    Thats cool, I love it so I don't care what people think of it. Number of times I'd been told in the 90's how good my tone was........until the same person saw what amp I had and changed their opinion was amazing.

    People love them, people hate them. I'm all good with that though I am not convinced all the that hate them have actually sat down and played around with one.

    Mines a keeper.

    The guy is onto something-to the 80’s guys,anythng 90’s was garbage.900’s and 800’s are two different animals-both are fine amps
