Hey guys,

Need your opinion in this case. Which one of those should I buy?

The MArshall JCM 900 or a Handmade that is a clone of the Mark IV?

JCM 900 is easy known by us. To compare with the handmade, follow a few youtube clips of its sound:

They are more or less the same price... But the good thing is that if I intend to sell my amp further the JCM 900 has way more market than the handmade. The handmade is a lifetime amp... Very good, indeed, but I won't be able to sell it anymore.

I play mostly rock... Classic and modern, blues, metal and also pop-like songs (John Mayer).

I'm intending to stay with the handmade.

What you guys thing?

I like the MK IV, looks funky and sounds good

Well, you have to mod a JCM900 to do what you want without sounding like a pile of smeg. Modded amps are often harder to sell if they aren't done by somebody well known. In which case you may as well get the Mark IV clone, especially as it seems like that's the one you really want.

311 is right. 900's have hardly kept their value. They are the cheapest "flagship" model Marshall on the market. They aint worth squat (with the exception of the SL/X).

Hell, I'd get the Mark 4 clone just for all the switches.
