I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

The Lemmy signature is just a JMP Superbass II reissue. 100 watts, wouldn't recommend if you wanted anything even close to a clean sound at gig volumes.

EDIT: It's called the 1992LEM.

Marshall isn't really known for its bass amps. People say MB is the bass equivalent of MG. Not sure about that though. But I think you will be paying for the name if you buy a Marshall. People just want their amps to say "Marshall".

In my opinion, Marshall is like Gibson in how thye perceive amps. They look at it from the perspective of guitars, instead of treating it like a separate entity. The Marshall bass amps I've tried seemed to be underpowered and get mildly muddy in the lower range of notes.

I agree with MaggaraMarine; you're paying for the name. For the cost, there are far better options out there.

I have no idea, I just thought it was worth confirming he was talking about the decent marshall guitar amps

Marshall has discontinued the VBA 400 bass head, which was a fine amplifier that did not sell. They appear to have put all of their bass eggs into their DBS bass amps, and it is by no means an extensive line:

http://www.marshallamps.com/heritage/dbs/dbs_05.asp

The less expensive Marshall bass amps were scarcely Marshall at all - they seemed to be something that Marshall threw together just so that they could offer bassists something. If you are a Lemmy fan, then the Marshall Lemmy Super Bass is the way to go. If you have the cash and can find one NOS, a VBA 400 will serve you quite well. Beyond that, I do not recommend Marshall bass amps. Since I have never seen or played one of their DBS amps, I will reserve judgment on them. They might be just great.

Now; there is a way to get around the "bass stigma" of Marshall and still play a Marshall. Not too long ago, Marshall bought the Eden bass amplifier company. So if you get a new Eden, you are technically playing a Marshall.

Good luck! There are many fine bass amps out there, and in many price ranges. You will find something that works for you.
