I love the Stage 100, however is it a fair trade?
A Marshall for a Blackstar?..

I absolutely love the Stage 100, and in fact think it sounds better then then JCM800.
I'm only having a problem with my elitism at this point I think, and I just need someone to tell me its a good deal haha.
I mean ITS A MARSHALL!!!!

HELP.
I AGREE

Blackstar kills it

This made me laugh.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

It isn't really clear, but which one do you actually have? lol

Yeah, 2203 Reissue.
I didn't think it mattered! My bad.
I AGREE

JCM 800 reissue or not over that ANYDAY. If you're trading YOUR MARSHALL, then hell no.

You answered your own question.

No one is going to think you are awesome because you have a Marshall.

TS owns the marshall.

Go for the better tone TS, don't let brand names get in the way.

Did fleetwood mac care about brand names when they took 6 orange amps (unheard of in the day) on their US tour?

Did Jeff Healey care about brand names using a Squier for most of his career?

Did Slash care about brand names using a Les Paul replica to record Appetite for Destruction?

I think he did because as soon as he got a little money he started playing Gibsons.

That's because he couldn't keep taking the replica on the road or it wouldn't last. He wanted to preserve it.

EDIT: I just looked at a blackstar stage 100 review on youtube. It has a lot more features than the JCM800 and the clean channel sounds nice, but both the overdrive channels sound horrid to me. There's no warmth. I know the JCM isn't particularly warm either but it has a certain harmonic richness which I think the blackstar lacks. Maybe the blackstar is more voiced for metal I don't know.

Go for tone TS

Those must still be unknown, cause I've never heard of "Prange" amps.

Then why did he play Gibsons and not some other cheap brand?

Cus he wanted the LP tone, which he got better from the replica.

What's your problem? So what if Slash is a b*tch for brand names, I was just making a point that tone is more important.

He didnt want to damage it further, it was already wrecked by the end of the Appetite tour he said. BTW, he STILL TO THIS DAY, records almost EXCLUSIVELY with that same replica he got way back when. Only time he doesnt record with that guitar is when he needs certain other sounds, like when he uses his mockingbird. He's always said his favorite guitar has always been that replica.
