Hey all! I am having the hardest time making this decision and would love your 2 cents. I've been playing Marshalls for years and recently came into a situation where 1/2 stacks are getting to big for my needs these days. Recently a guy offered me a 1974x that is in nice shape for my jcm800 2204 50 watt head. Now my only concerns are- I do love my JCM and it's a little sentimental. The other concern is I do gig and will be using this with a band. Will it be loud enough and am I making a mistake to get rid of the Jcm? I'm not a high gain player and keep my Jcm preamp around 11oclock. Also does the 1974x clean up well with the volume knob? Thanks you guys. I really appreciate your input.
