I play modern hard rock/alternative metal (chevelle,Tool,a perfect circle)

i have a gibson les paul studio 1991

i use 11 gauge strings

allmost everything i play is in drop d or b

I have an oppertunity to get a JCM 900 for $600 USD

I've been looking at the B-52 at 100 but am concerned about the reliability issues.

i'd have a mesa if i could affored it.

should i go for this JCM 900?

yeah it'd be good. i have one, and it's great. Get a distortion or an overdrive and you're good.

thing is though, 600 is a bit much. I got mine for 450. Exactly what kind of JCM900 is it? is it a dual reverb 4100? is it a SL-X? MK II? 50/100 watts?

the early 4100's are usually considered the better ones, but idk, that's just what i hear.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Tool is a maybe... and I mean maybe because Idk if the jcm 900 has a presence option and I honestly don't know how it would fair as a modern gain amp.

But try it out.

the jcm900 has plenty of gain, more than i think anyone you'd typically associate with marshall would ever use.
