    So far the JMP 2203 has been my favorite!

    For me, it was my 6100, but the JVM JS I got last blew me away and still is every time I play it. Love it.

    Earliest JTM models to the earliest JCM MV models, after that it all went downhill into "super saturationville"

    I converted my MkII 74' SL into a 68' Super Lead w/68' (vintage board/parts) and MM 100W PT to lower the B+ for EL34's (vs. std. 6550's). Absolutely LUUUUUUUV IT! Just been experimenting playing my Gibson LPPP w Moore/Green hb's -> Keeley Blues Driver -> 74' converted to 68' Marshall 100W head jumpered) -> early 70's Hiwatt 4x12" Fane cabinet. I'll put this Hiwatt Fane cabinet up against most any greenback cab I've ever heard.

    Most Marshalls are good for someone; it's easier to list the ones I've used which I say to avoid (tube models only): MA, all models, Jcm 900 4100 and direct relatives, JCM 60 or 600, Haze (due to reliability issues), early TSL's (ditto on reliability). But pretty much any major release Marshall is a pretty good amp so if you can deal with it, it's a good tool for music.

    I have to say I gigged last night with my JCM 2000 DSL 100. I picked it up in a trade not to long ago. It was in mint shape. Used it for the first time and it was awesome. Sick tone.

    But I go back and forth between amps. My 410H and 2555x both appeal to me for different reasons. I wish my DSL 50 sounded as good as the 100. I bought at used. Maybe it needs Ribt EL 34's like the 100 has. Sounds dull compared to the 100.

    Two of the three I own (happen to my favorites at this time) the JVM410 (my rack/midi rig) and my Jubilee reissue (My pedal rig).

    I just got a JCM900 4501....it'll work as a portable practice rig...nothing I'd record or gig with.

    Had a Valvestate 8200...clean channel was ok, not as 'sparkly' as a real tube amp. The contour control made for really tight metal sounds.
    It developed 'squeals' and other noises later in its life and was sold off....played a lot of shows with it.

    I haven't owned any of the older stuff 800, Plexi, 1987 etc...I know without pedals they won't get me what I want...but at some point, I'll end up with one of the 'classics.'

    My JCM 900 4102 with Mullard tubes plus Celestion Classic Lead and G12T-75 speakers. Every time I add something new to it it just sounds even better and better. The Classic Lead speaker gave it an even bigger sound with a ton of headroom and its not overly middy sounding at all, its very thick on single notes and chords are full bodied. I don't dollop on too much gain but it sits at half way with the volume on about 4-6 depending on practice, gigs and shows
