    Yeah just put tung sol 12ax7 (ecc83) in it
    Only difference was i selected some high gain tested ones for v3 v4 v5, and a tested low noise in v2
    With JJ comparison regular and high gain didnt affect tone much, but sustain yes

    Also had a TSL122 for long
    Enough gain on ch3, bit tighter than the 6101
    With 6101 i sometimes feel i have to use a maxon od808 to tighten the lows
    Ch2 didnt use much on tsl, while 6101 2B has me addicted, in tsl ch2 was literally a lower gain ch3
    Clean both ok, maybe 6101 bit deeper

    How different are the 6100LE and the 6100LM sound-wise?

    From my experience , the LM sounds like it has a bit more " hair " if you will , and the LE being EL34 based sounds pure classic Marshall , both a great amps , if you don't have one ...... get one NOW !!!

    Some say the clean channel on the LM is a bit better than the LE .
    The LM has a touch more gain on tap for the 3rd channel


    Both are Kick ass amps !!
    I want a EL34 based 6100 just to say i have one .... i love these amps ! :hbang:

    Just played my LE half stack at a Christmas party, did a bunch of classic rock stuff, I was actually surprised that a lot of people were coming up to me after the set saying how great my amp sounded, especially compared to the other guitarist who was using a Line 6 amp; even today, the Marshall tone is noticeable to people.

    Yep , if you compare many other amps of the time 91-92 when the 6100 was designed and released , they was nothing like it on the market ( as far as i know ?? )

    That's why today it still kicks ass on alot of other amps ....... Ha , i love it !!


    The Marshall 6100 Rules the tube amp jungle !!

    :D I for one can believe a 6100 could possibly sound better than a Line6.....

    Unless it was a Line6 Velveeta....

    Ummmmm. Now I'm hungry.

    :D I've done mods on DSL's etc. I've seen Pics of the Inside of one of those 6100's I'd be afraid of it too...

    It's just plain scary inside.

    6101 is about as good as it gets for a single 12 combo tube amp !!!

    That was badasss.

    Awesome guitar tone. Awesome guitar solo as well. The right amount of shred mixed mixed with good melodic content.

    Looked like the lead guitarist had an SL-X, and the singer had the 6100.

    I used my 6100 for a gig last night and I was impressed with the amp once again.



    Off that topic, I have a thread in the Workbench section asking about the 6100/6101 "Low Volume Compensation" feature or circuit. I am wondering how this circuit works basically.
