I'm not a fan of Splawns at all.

Then again, I don't play metal either.

Well, I'm almost positive that the modded super lead became some model in his lineup.

All of his amps are based off the super lead circuit. The problem was that the gain on that amp was just too uncontrollable, and like any other high gain circuit, certain response and dynamics are compromised. a


Regardless, all that I'm saying is that they're not my cup of tea. They're good amps, and probably represent the direction Marshall should've headed in rather than the JCM900. I'm just not a huge fan myself.

Yeah, you're right about Marshall's direction.

Heres a great sounding JTM45 I found on youtube



A great demonstration of that thick and throaty clean tone that you get when the amp just begins to break up, with a bit of hair and some real bite when you dig in hard, with enough compression and liquid sustain for those leads.

Such an amazing amp, sounds unlike any other amp.

Can someone give me a quick list of some amps famous for the 80's metal brownsound OTHER than the JCm800. I heard it, didnt really like it enough to buy it, even an 80's one.

Is this the brownsound tone you're looking for?



1968 plexi, the original EVH/brownsound amp.

I suggest you check out the Metroamp forums, most of the guys over there are chasing EVH tone, some of them get really close.

As always, the amp needs to be turned up, JCM800 included, at low volumes it will sound buzzy and fizzy. The plexi would need to be dimed to get the level of gain in the video, but its pretty much THE brownsound tone. Once the master volume series hit, you're really starting to get more into that Iron Maiden to Metallica to Slayer type of tone, and less Van Halen, Journey, etc. type of 80s "metal".

Yeah, they'll give you that Van Halen tone.

Zoso, you can get that sound! There are many amps that can do that! What's your price range?

Oh, Al, you're the one keeping this thread alive, I don't know what I'd do without you

Also, a key to early VH tone are g12m speakers.


http://forum.metroamp.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9694

Check out that TS's soundclick, its about 3 posts down from the top, there is a clip called "Weber Mytone12 - full tilt" with him demonstrating Ted Weber's pre-rola g12m clones. Pretty much nails that Fair Warning tone.

Crystal meth, I tell you!

Anyway, while I was in Sacramento I spied a Mesa Mark III in a music store but they wouldn't let me play it. What surprised me was that they were so tiny - I think it was a 1x12. Didn't get to get a real good look at it, but... damn. I wish I could've played that instead of the "Dual Rectumfryer" now (which was still awesome, but probably not as awesome as the Mark III )

I saw a Mark one in New York city once. I almost had a seizure......

I never understood why they don't let you play amps. Sure, you can damage an expensive guitar, but an amp? How?
