Plexi cleans are usually dirty and "brown". The JVM along with the JMP1 preamp and the JCM900 have the best cleans when it comes to marshall amps.

if you want plexi style cleans from a modern Marshall, the only things that will really get them are the plexi reissues and the Vintage Modern (for cleans the 100w).

50W can get cleans too.

I think he was just saying that if you're buying it FOR cleans, buy the 100... Which makes sense.

Well, if you are buying an amp for cleans, buy a Fender.

if you want 'clean' clean then maybe not a marshall. If you want Marshall cleans, and are prepared for volume that will shatter your teeth and make your balls suck up inside you, then plexi. Plexis have a habit of overloading speakers also

Modirnwarfare, why are you still making threads about JVM's?

I mean, you made about 10 a month ago. Have you even bought it yet?

He got banned, Judafi.

I'll try to help you AGAIN modirn, even though you were slightly less than friendly in return last time x,x

JVM's will give you a more pure, less-distorting clean, as well as likely a dirtier one that relates to a typical plexi clean. JVM 205s (which are what you're looking at, I remember) can get a 100% pure clean, at minimum; Satch uses them as pedal-***** amps, so the clean (or at least the cleanest one) must not do much to the signal. That said, no Marshalls (bar the 900 and rare exceptions) are well known for good cleans. You'd do better looking for an amp that can do a marshall distortion and then good cleans if you want 'em that much. Laney, Randall RM, and Splawn all come to mind

Maybe some people don't like Fender's clean and prefer's a Marshall's clean. Rookie mistake.

Niether of these are properties of a plexi.

100w - more headroom - you won't get much of a gig vol clean tone with the 50w.
That is definitely not true.

Chill out fellas, I think JesusCrisp is just trying to say he prefers Fender cleans to Marshall cleans. Which, in most cases, I'd have to agree with. Also, If my 30W Egnater can stay clean at gig volumes, a 50W Vintage Modern will have no problems with doing the same thing.

Where in the world did the idea that a Marshall's cleans do not sound as good as a Fender's come from? Just because a Marshall's cranked British crunch tone is so famous does not mean that it's clean does not sound good.

^ plexi + strat

I hate how Fender has become associated with clean and Marshall has become associated with overdrive. Because a vintage Fender's overdrive tone (tweed, blonde, BF) is amazing and a Marshall plexi's clean tone is also amazing. And it's not like a Fender is necessarily going to stay cleaner than a Marshall. Very few of your classic Fender twin reverb recordings are of a completely clean amp. All those Bloomfield, Jerry Garcia rock tones are from a cranked Fender twin.

I am trying to say that most people who want a clean amp are looking into Fender amps.

Some Marshall amps have also got nice cleans, the JVM is one of them.
I don't exactly know how JVM cleans compare to the Plexi cleans, but I guess they sound a bit 'cleaner'.

I never said Marshall cleans are bad, I just prefer Fender cleans. They sound glassier to me. Regardless, that clip is very nice.
