The jcm 800 seems to be great from SRV like tones all the way up to kill em metallica era, or early megadeth.

I also want a sound that can cover tones like Sum 41, nirvana, paramore, creed, Shinedown, Incubus, etc...

I dont think the jcm 800 alone will cut it.

can the jcm 800 with a boost pedal sound in the same vein as a dual rec, 5505?? as far as the heaviness?


If I get a boost pedal can the jcm 800 get a great tone to cover those type of bands?

So I should have the amp at near full overdrive with an overdrive pedal on it? what kind of pedal?

Yes, but get the single channel one. For Paramore at least, you will want an EQ pedal as a boost. Id go for two overdrives as well on my board for versatility. Which, is a matter of preference and budget.

Definitely, I play pop punk, (wonder uears, fall out boy type stuff) we used one on our last recording. It can do crunch really well. However a 900 is a bit more veraatile but I prefer the 800.

JCM2000 DSL50/100 would be my choice, great cleans and it can do JCM800/plexi type tones and has the ability to do harder music also. It was the amp of choice for Dave from Sum41
