Why do you want a Marshall? If I were you I would look at the JCM900/ DSL as those are probably closer to what you want. I think your best interest though is to look into Mesa and Engl and other high gain amp manufacturers.

Marshalls aren't for metalcore kinda crap, old school metal and rock is their game, if you want a muddy drop tuned metalcore tone, go with Mesa or Peavey.

No, there is absolutely no Marshall anywhere that can be used for metal...

well i know someone who can get me a deal on marshalls, but i only wanna spend around $600...what else could i get for around that price?
#13
of course. with a bit of tweaking/pedals/right pups, it should work out fine. Alexi Laiho uses a JCM800. I didn't even know until I went to a show. Always thought he used a Krank.. Well. There are better amps for metalcore like 5150. and rectos are awesome for a similar price.

It was a Montreal Craigslist ad for $650 CDN (~ $500 USD). I had to drive 2 hours to pick it up then 2 hours back, but it was worth it. I paid $45 in gas to save hundreds over buying one in Toronto.

The only drawback was that if I checked it out and something was horribly wrong, or the tone was ****, I was out $50 bucks.

There are a lot of musicians that love the JCM2000 for metal. It's not my cup of tea but it does have a nice compressed top and a solid bass/lower midrange chug that is good for lots of different types of metal. I find that it sounds great in a recording or mic'ed and run to a PA but lacks dynamics when it's just you in the bedroom.

personally, i have tried the marshall mg and the marshall valvestate and none of em really stood out or were teribly interesting. however as we all should know by now, tone is different from ear to ear so its your choice not myn. apparently jcm800's are pretty flash but thats only what the magazines say and all, you really have to try them for yourself

^MG and Valvestates sound nothing like the marshal valve amps.

I hate Marshalls with the exception of this one amp...



It can get you that classic JCM800 tone and then with the flip of a switch balls out metal.. Great amp but it is costly so look used.

This entire post is fail.

A JCM800 will do mallmetal just fine. Also, 5150s are tight as hell, muddy? STFU newb.

Marshall = Same price used as Peavey
Your Statement = Worthless




The 6100 is the best Marshall I've heard so far. I love mine, plenty of gain for Metal. An 800 boosted will be good too, don't expect a low end comparable to an amp specifically designed for modern metal though. The DSL50 is my second favorite Marshall, IMO, they sound great, especially with a boost, and there's also the 2203KK, that thing is a beast as well. You could also go for a JCM900 MKIII/SL-X

You expected the MGs and Valvestates to stand out?

I don't think flashy is the word for JCM800s. The difference you seem to be missing is JCM 800s are expressive musical instruments.
