Hey guys,

At the moment i have a small line 6 spider amp for home practice. For now this is ok, but im already looking for an upgrade. I would like to get as close as possible to the zakk wylde no more tears sound regardless of price. Obviously the jcm800 is not an option for my home i did see some smaller marshall combo's, but they dont have a dedicated clean chanel. Why is that?

So im not looking for just an ok sound, i want a great sound. Price is irrelevant. I still need to be able to use it in my home without being too loud. What would you guys say is the best solution?

JCM800s aren´t exactly famous for their clean tone either.

Something like a Koch Studiotone and a decent overdrive pedal would work fine.

That said, I play in an OZZY tribute band and I get my tone out of a Gibson Flying V and a Framus Dragon head, which of course is not an option for playing at home.

Laney VH100R with a 2x12? It has a built in volume attenuator. Unless you strictly need a combo. In which case there is a combo version you can pick up used.

Are you sure? Unless they've changed, they didn't used to have an attenuator built-in.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Well, not exactly and attenuator, but run a patch cable from the insert out to the insert in and turn down the input gain. Very nicely cuts it down to bedroom levels.

Cath hit it on the head a Marshall JCM2000 DSL 401 or 201. The 401 is more widely available used (the 401 is 40watts the 201 is 20watts). they have a very nice clean channel and can get pretty dirty on their own.
