Now I've seen ALOT of different Marshall heads (JVM, JCM, etc.) and I wanna know which ones are like the modern hard rock heads? Which ones would you guys recommend? Are their any Mesa-sounding Marshalls?

No. Mesa = American voiced (except for the Stiletto, which is based on a Marshall). Marshall = British voiced.

Mesa are best for very clean cleans and uber high gain. Marshalls are best for everything in between.

My style is very broad. I'm influenced by Chevelle, Tool, A7X, KSE, Red, Staind, etc..
I was originally thinking about a Dual Rec but I don't know..

BTW Thanks for the chart man! A JCM 900 looks pretty good.

a JCM 900 would be the best thing probably for modern hard rock, and is a competitor to the Dual Rec of sorts.

For instance Tom Delonge back in his Blink days (pysched for the Reunion! lol) used a 900 and a Dual Rec interchangeably

Yeah, a JCM900 sounds like what you want. Maybe with an OD for the very high gain.

It's a little harsh on the Mode Four IMO, but then again I'm the only one (apart from John 5) who likes them.

I don't know about that the JVMs can get a pretty heavy amount of gain. It sounds pretty decent too, but it really takes some time to sit down with it. I could never quite get the tones that I liked out of it (too many f-ing knobs), but I've heard some people make it sound amazing. Neal Schon uses them currently and he has always had great tone.

To the TS; if you want a Mesa, get a Mesa, it's not like a high end Marshall is really going to be cheaper anyway.

So maybe a JCM 900 with a good quality tube gain pedal? My sansamp isn't tube driven but I'm sure it would good in a rig with a JCM 900

Probably not. The Sansamp is a distortion pedal that you would use on the clean channel, not to boost the gain. The 900 has plenty of distortion, it just may need a boost for uber-high gain metal.

Gutch put it together, but the info was sourced from a variety of sources. Gabe being one of them.

Oh ok, yea, I don't want that uber-high stuff. Slipknot would be the highest gain I'd ever use.

Oh and Shadows, Pete Loeffler (Chevelle) uses his GT2 to boost his gain, but its only when he wants lots of feedback. Its only in a couple songs.
