I dont like this, they're making the JCM2000 range look cheap and lowering it further from the other JCM's

It's basically an MG cab with Marshall designed Celestions.
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

For the same price, you could get a used DSL, a better cab, and some new tubes...
There's still probably better new for the price, as well.

I applaud Marshall on their attempt to somewhat get closer to the "budget-minded new amp buyers".... it is still a good ways off, though.



Agreed.

Well said.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Why^? All it does is bruise the egos of people who own the higher grade JCMs.

AVTs are hybrid and not an awful lot better than MGs, although they are better for sure.

Anyway, this looks interesting. I've been a long time fan of the JCM2000s, good to see they might be returning.

I don't know all the technical differences, but tonally:
- The JCM800 is the go-to amp for the crunch tone you hear on so many records from the 80s in particular. Almost all of those are JCM800. It has a fair amount of gain, but without any boost probably not more than early Bay Area thrash. Some 800s are single channel, others 2 channel.
- The JCM2000s are all 2 channel. Basically these amps don't have that Marshall crunch, but they do all have good cleans and a lot of gain. They seem to the the go-to amp for a lot of modern punk/hardcore bands. I know Ray Toro and Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance both use them.

800 was made in the 80s and has that 80's rock thing going for it the 900 was modern voiced with gobs of gain and was made in the 90s and the 2000's were made in 2000's and has several voicings on the different channels and modes that basically recreates older marshalls jcm800 plexi etc...I will argue the marshall crunch thing as I get a pretty good one from mine...
