I bought a used JCM 800 2203 and HOLY **** it sounds amazing!

I want to remove the big white Marshall logo on the face of it. (minimalistic look) Do you guys know how it's attached? How would I go about getting it off, and would it hurt the resale value of the amp w/o it?

1. You're probably not going to be able to get it off without snapping it.
2. It would definitley hurt the resale value, having a Marshall logo on your amp enlarges your penis by 2" at least, because every amp Marshall makes is the best in its class.

Mine was pressed into holes on the pegs molded into it. Not sure if it is glued, mine came off with some careful prying, although mine was not fully intact to begin with. Try to keep it intact for full resale value, you should be able to press it back in. If it is glued, you may be able to peel it if you are careful.

I would keep it on, I only took mine off to replace it, as it said I played a "snall" due to being broken when I bought the amp.

Maybe Screws? thats how mine is. I guess you would have noticed that though.

I wouldn't do it. It probably will hurt resale value.

if this is sarcasm, it is full of win.

if it is not, it is full of fail.

just throw some black tape over it, like a lot of bands do to their Marshall logos (Tom Morello, Mastodon, Boris, etc). Looks pretty BA without the blatant Marshall logo, and the black tape is completely reversable.

No problem, although as someone said there will be some residue if you do remove the tape, but it's nothing a slightly damp towels won't take care of.

Open the back up and take the whole front cover off it. Then put some plexiglass on there so you can see the T00Bz!!

hey what would happen if you just opened it up and took the whole front and left it uncovered? i think that would be pretty sick actually.

or you can even take like a piece of dry erase board and cut it to specifications and fit it on for a DRY ERASE BOARD ON YOU FREAKIN AMP!

that would be so sick.

HAHAHAHAHA


that would definitely be cool, no sarcasm...


I wouldn't want to leave the amp exposed like that, I know nothing would probably happen, but it's still a scary thought.

It's just the speaker...


a JCM 800 2203... is a head


and I would rather expose the front of the tubes then the speakers. The grill cloth on a cab actually has a purpose tone-wise.

i know a person who owned a jcm900 head and a orange tiny terror

ill admit, tiny terror wins in my personal opinion

he sold the jcm for a vox ac15 straight across..

i think it was a stupid trade considering the fact that the vox
did not even have the alnico blue, it had a celestion 100 watt in it..

sorry for the off topic post..

I have an answer for that, being in both camps. The reason is that some Marshall guys can't see beyond their "precious" brand and refuse to look beyond it. There are many Marshall owners that aren't a- holes. Problem is the a- hole group is the most vocal (these are often the people with sub-par models may I remind you). On the other hand you have the Orange camp, where most people there (including myself) started out looking for/owning a Marshall and got an Orange, since they have a similar tone. The thing is that many Orange players (including myself) agrees that Oranges does the classic Marshall tone better than many modern Marshalls. But then the Marshall guys shows up and says that no that is not the case, Orange are a cheap knockoff brand they say. War commences.

I get sick of n00bs telling me that their precious JCM900 is better in every way than my Rocker 30.
...
#27
^Tell me about it. The Rocker 30 is the best modern Marshall amp there is, since it sounds more Marshall than a Marshall. I used to have a Plexi, but it was way too loud so I needed to trade it for an amp that had that tone but wasn't as loud. The answer was a Rocker 30.
