Marshall JCM 900 SL-X vs JCM 800 vs 9005+9001 ?

Which You think would be best ?
I can have them for similar price.
I need a lot of gain for 80s metal, I don't want get additional dist pedal.
I play mostly 80s rock kind Floyd's.

I've only played the 800 and I'd say if you want a lot of gain without a pedal then rule it out.

Out of those two, the JCM900 has more gain on tap, and the SL/X is the 900 to get, if you don't want to do any modding to make it all-tube. I'm not familiar with the 9005 or 9001.

If you're looking at 80's rock tones, though, check out Jet City as well. Each of their amps are clones of Soldano amps, made by Mike Soldano as budget amps.

SLX is where the party is at.

Yea i love 900 SL-X gain, but it's too bad that it has only 1 channel, I wish to have 2 channels.
How about 900 Hi Gain Dual Reverb ? Is it have lot of gain too (enough for thrash without boost?).

used to have a dsl 100 which was pretty good in a Hendrix band. Needed pedals though but a great sound. Had to get rid though cos it was too damn loud!!
Finished up with a Hiwatt Studio Stage which really did the business but at gig levels.

The JCM900 Dual Reverb is THE WORST JCM900. If you want actual tube distortion, it requires a good bit of modding. The MKIII isn't AS bad, but it still needs some modding. The SL/X is the only one that doesn't need modded
