can i be cheeky and ask why you want to sell a jcm 800 (classic fairly desireable amp) for a jcm 900 (the lowest point in marshall history)

ps free bump for a nice amp

ha ha ok iwas slightly over dramatic hell i had a JCM900 not so long ago and quite liked it but im pretty sure i would have swapped it for an 800 in a heartbeat. I always thought they were the better of the series

I guess youre one of these people with feeble brains who cant understand different people have different musical preferences.....no doubt the 800 2205 is a great amp but the 900 suits my style better like many bands of the 90s. Most people just play a jcm 900 half stack at 0.5 volume in their bedroom and think it sounds terrible...well it would...it needs to be cranked then it is a different beast. my 800 sounds terrible at 0.5 volume. so thanks for your opinion but keep it to yourself next time.

well you know what i mean...all valve amps sound better the more you work the power valves. my amp isnt for the bedroom but is great for gigging.

not just my opinion bud opinion of many. I gig 3 times a week and have NEVER played an amp in my bedroom. I have experience in this matter so thought i would give you a heads up. Its nothing to do with what volume you play the 900 at its the fact that it uses a chip to produce the distortion and it sounds crap.

well maybe that is your opinion "and that of many" but its not mine. Oh and you say that jcm 800s are great and 900s are crap cos of the diode clipping? the lead series 800s also use diode clipping. either way i keep the gain low and crank it to get the power valve distortion, which to my ears sounds great with both amps, just sounds defining different eras.
