That is the definition of "Marshall Roar"
It's hard to beat a 1959/1987 into a couple of cabs and speakers of your choice. Throw a tasteful board in front of it (spanning the range), and there's literally nothing you can't reach. There's no wrong answer to this, as we all have preferences, but this is a safe bet of a starting point that might very well lead into an ending point.
Ya know, there's another thread going on "Who Would you have hit in their Prime", lots of nice photos..... But I seem to prefer your photo right here over some of those for some odd reason!
I don't know. Some of us have neighbors...
Hell yeah !
Heiko.. That is the way to roll
That's a nice looking LP ... would love to see you start a thread on it in the Guitars sub-forum, and include some additional pics.
Mather Cabinets with oversized bottom TVB cabinet, EC Collins Pinstripe cloth x Scumback M75 PVC 65w speakers Load it up with all NOS glass. KT66s x Mullard I61s, or I63s.
Or have Valvestrom build a Metropoulos spec JTM45/100
Metropoulos Superplex head is also another option, and use the same Speakers/Cabinets
Well, it depends on what I'm going for at the moment. Generally speaking, a 2203 running on 6550s into an MF400 4x12 is just about as good as it gets for me.
Why? Because no matter how hard you crank it you never lose note definition, and the bottom end stays tight and huge. It's not overly bright and the mids are just right. Plug straight in it's a perfect classic rock machine. Throw a good overdrive in front of it and you can do any kind of metal you can imagine.
with a........ A & B & C cab !
I wish !
Nice gear guys.
Well, there is always the option of downsizing.
I'd get one of those but for my bad back.
Anyway original 59 with pre rolas. And a roadie.
Dude you may be my neighbor.I'm from the same area.
We're you outside near Red Top yesterday? I had the JMP 2203 fired up yesterday, volume on 6. Could very well have heard me!!!
Thanks to all !!! By available I meant available right now to buy new from anywhere. The JCM800s are not available right now but will be by mid next year. I am personally torn between waiting for the JCM800 with the 1960A&B cabs and the Silver Jubilee 2555X with the 2551AV&BV cabs. Any thoughts ??? The tone I want is that classic Marshall tone cross between a Hendrix and Blackmore sound. I really like the clean strat sound of Hendrix with that Ritchie Blackmore bite.
That DSL 100 I have is just enough to make you want more. Its OK but I would say close but no cigar. It is just a budget marshall or entry level, just enough to, like I said, make you want more !
Not familiar with red top?
Lots of great suggestions here. My personal preference would be the usual suspects, JTM45, 45/100, 1959/92, 1987, 2203/4 through greenbacks if running 1 or 2 4x12s. V30s work if run through a 2x12. One current production amp that caught my attention is the Marshall 1959HW Bernie Marsden model along with a V30 loaded 2x12. Just nails it for my tastes and style. Super expensive as they are limited but I imagine these tones can be had with a few tweaks of a regular 1959HW. Still expensive but probably worth it as it seems to me would leave you longing for nothing - as far as quintessential Marshall tones are concerned.
The secret ingredient to all these amps (when playing with others) is a Fryette PS. Best purchase I ever made. I put it off for years and sold a lot of fine Marshall amps as I couldn't bring myself to butcher a perfectly clean vintage Marshall.
Anyway, good luck with your quest and check out this video in the meantime. Ah, just plain tasty!
Best is so subjective, there really is no such thing. Jubilees are awesome. Different from most Marshalls. Not really a classic sound without some work.
If you feeel an 800 is closest to what you are hwaring then wait. The JVM410 does everything. But you see so many differing opinions here you have to listen and decide for yourself.
