    For the most part there's not too much here that hasn't been discussed before..there must be 500 dsl bias issue threads alone. :D it doesn't bother me at all, different people, different opinions.

    I had one in the early 90s. It sucked. The distortion was very unpleasant and grainy vs my Laney AOR 100W that had blown up on me mid tour. I sold the Marshall in 1997 for $250 and got a Tremoverb combo. Now that is a smoking amp, particularly after I had it modded for 3 channels and a custom footswitch. Singing tone.

    The moral of the story is.........trust in yourself and don't believe everything you read on the Internet/Forums.

    Bloody hell, if I had done that, I would have sold my wonderful TSL 100 head and G12T-75 speakers fukcin years ago.

    Rock n' roll

    "Why do people complain about these?"

    Two words.

    Guitar Forums.

    On the Sixteenth Day, God invented Google as he was getting sick of the number of bullshit artists in the World.

    But he did not want all fictional stories in the World to end.

    So on the Seventeenth Day, God invented Guitar Forums so spreading mistruths in the face of logical argument could persist and the art of fiction was saved forever amongst middle aged men.

    My first amp was a 50W Dual Reverb JCM900 in 1992. Delivered from the hands of God himself. 1 Boss EQ pedal, and you are there.

    I wouldn't worry what others think. The JCM600 doesn't get a lot of love on the Internet. I've never had a problem with mine. It's a 60-watt JCM series amp, Made in England. Enjoy your new gear.

    There is always people
    Opening their big fucking mouth just because they have to bitch about something every fucking day !
    Pay no attencion to those useless bastards!
    Lol

    lot of people talk shit about the TSL or the Jvm and you know what bad ass players use them if they are good for pro players they must be good enough for us!

    i know the Tsl has his very weak spots all the bullshit with the bias but a healthy Tsl its a bad ass amp!
    Jvm not the best marshall not the worse either!
    You can dial bad ass tones with JVM!!!

    I have a JCM800 2203, 2204 and JMP 1987. And I still love my JCM900 4100. It’s a great amp. It doesn’t have quite the punch the others do, but it sounds great and it’s very fun to play.

    All Marshalls come alive with a Loop.

    [​IMG]

    That's why they went through the trouble of building them.

    I had an original issue 90's 900. Sold it but I miss it.
