Why Billy Hydes? There's so many more cheaper places.

Marshall JCM800, Vintage Modern? A boost if you're doing Metallica though.

Marshalls most definitely don't suck! MGs suck.

Marshall MG's definitely aren't a good representation of their amps. MArshall aren't know for their solid state amps. You want a all tube marshall. of course those cost an arm, a leg, and a left testicle plus a blood donation to purchase.

I'm right behind the JCM800. It's more gain than necessary for Zep-type stuff, but it's great for Metallica--early Metallica, anyway--and it's basically what Slash used, though his had diode clipping built in.

Oh, and I don't know about Australia, but around here used JCM800s generally go for around 500-1000USD.

Aussie prices suck, if you're going to get a JCM800, go used.

New here they get up to around the $2000+ mark

Slash didn't use a JCM 800, he used a Silver Jubilee for the Use Your Illusion albums.

Anyway, a JCM 800 will do what you want - but it won't be easy to get cleans out of it.

What about Appetite for Destruction?

and do Marshalls always have poor cleans? because they're horrid on the MG
#13
Not on the better models, the Vintage Modern has great cleans.

As Raijouta said, getting cleans on an 800 won't be as easy but can be done.

no most marshalls have good cleans just not let the mg bring marshall down like that.. all their other amps are so much better you could even look into their dsl models. thats what i was going to get but now im getting a jvm instead because here there was no more dsl's left..
#15
they're the best looking amps thats for sure doesnt yngwie malmsteen (fave guitarist) use them as well?
#16
yeah, he has a signature head as well

but that doesn't mean you should get a marshall because they look good

i heard yngwie used to use dsl's for his live stuff since he couldnt take his old heads on the road and at risk

It's incredible unlikely Slash used a Silver Jubilee for AfD--it didn't come out until after the album was finished and being released. Anyway, the Silver Jubilee is a JCM derivative.

Yngwie used either a Marshall 1959 or a 1987, I forget which. He and Slash both have sigs.

The JTM45, JTM45/100, 1987, 1959 and VM have great cleans. The JCM900 and JCM2000 have okay cleans. The JCM800 and (this is debatable) 2061 have below-average cleans. The MGs have terrible cleans. The others...are somewhere between great and terrible.

Hmm so JCM is best then? Just a Slash and Yngwie sound would be perfect, in terms of narrowing it down a good clean is not essential but nice
#21
Meh it's okay.

Yes you do need a speaker cabinet, otherwise you won't be able to use it.

Just get the bloody JCM.

What about this amp: http://www.allansbillyhyde.com.au/prod/76/JMD100/Marshall_JMD100_Valve_Guitar_Amplifier_Head.aspx

Also do I need a speaker cabinet to go with the head if I dont need the amp to be loud?


I wouldn't bother with the JMD, heard a great deal of bad things about it...

Yes, you need a speaker cabinet. An amp head cannot make sound without a speaker.

If you want a Marshall-sounding amp with cleans and dirt, I'd look at the Laney VH100R. Footswitchable.

Cheers, whats the purpose of that small speaker in the middle then?

There's no speaker in amp heads.
