So yeah. After lots of waiting and biding up my hard-earned cash for a good while, I decided it was finally time to make the move.

There was a ton of thought in this decision, and I think it worked out well!

Without further to do, here is some amp pr0n




YES!

Sorry, it's a little blurry, so I'll make sure to go into detail.

It's a 1982 Marshall (duh) JCM 800 2204 (Yes, I do prefer 50 > 100 Watts) w/ Vertical Input Jacks.

Fresh from the intarwebs, my brand new cab is a Marshall 1960AV.



Oh yeah! It's backwards Logo thing because of my stupid computer. Sorry!

Anyway, the bad review:

Though I've only jammed on it for a few hours, this thing is an absolute beast. What really surprised me about this amp was the sparkly clean tones that these bad boys aren't normally known for. The little I played with the volume rolled back sounded great. It cleaned up very well and there was no muddy-ness at all.

Then, I decided to piss of my neighbors and crank it.



It was literally orgasmic. The tones coming out of this bad boy just made me Jizz. In. My. Pants. All jokes aside, it had some great blues and classic rock tones just from literally plugging and putting the knobs at noon. After some more playing around, I found a little more distortion, but I really haven't had the time to **** with it too much. After all, it's kinda hard to mess around with the amp when my jaw is on the floor

I fixed the sound thing. It was my ****ing Strat. Selling it and getting an ESP Eclipse-II

I see you have one of the rare limited edition left-handed JCM 800s.

Try setting the OCD up with level 10, gain 0 and tone in the middle, and set the amp to taste.

Yeah, I should probably sell it lol its probably worth a lot!

No, it's just my stupid mac being a jerk again.

And I'm rushing down to the garage to once again piss my neighbors off and try those settings up. Thanks

Haha Thanks dude! Truth be told I've had the head for months just sitting in my room, biding its time. I was craigslisting for a 1960AV, but I couldn't find one, so I said screw this, I'll work overtime and get a new cab!

Good choice on amps though! I just got finished jamming more, and it sounds so kickass!

If you're anything like me you'll eventually tire of the OCD and get a different overdrive for it.

Fantastic amps, those 2204s.

I hope it's an EL34 model. Not sure when they made the switch to 6550s.

Hey guys, update here! I have just cranked the amp. I'm still not getting the sound I really want. it's not heavy enough distortion-wise, even with the OCD. There is hardly any sustain. Chords sound alright but single notes are too thin for me. It's still great for classic rock and blues though, but I want to push it to harder distortion. This is my setup atm:

JCM 800:
Presence - Around 4
Bass - 6
Mid - 5
Treble - 4
Volume - Usually around 2 or 3, but usually as loud as I/my neighbors can handle :lol:
Pre-amp Volume - Around 8 or 9

Fulltone OCD:
Volume - Around 12 O'clock
Drive - 7 O'clock
Tone - Around 12 O'clock

Help UG! Thanks.

Mine has EL34's, and its an '82 too, so I think it is.

It's not heavy enough with the OCD? I finally got a chance to try one a few weeks back and I really liked it. That thing has a ton of gain, so much so that I was almost able to get modern metal tones out of it through a 6505+s clean channel.

You must be doing something wrong

My 2203 sounded heavy enough for metal with similar settings to yours and my Maxon OD-808 with the gain at 0 and volume maxed.
