Hey i was looking into maybe getting one because i heard they are pretty decent amps. im looking for old school metallica tone like Black album and before and also a good classic rock tone like AC DC i was gonna pair it with a Marshall 9200 or 9400 power amp i was wondering if i would be able to get those tones out of it or not

THX in advance SYN

Well, you'd definitely be able to get Dave Murray's (Iron Maiden) tone. I'm sure that you'd be able to get some Metallica and AC/DC tones out of it too. Personally, I prefer trying to find my own tone rather than someone elses. But hell, if that's what you're into...

Either way, you should be able to get a good tone out of it.
im not looking for metallicas tone exactly i need something with a good metal tone and at the same time have a good classic rock tone and i know it has two different OD channels one is old school overdrive while one is searing lead so i was just wondering how they sound as my chances of trying them are slim to none

From reading reviews, they sound great. I haven't tried one, but I read a bunch of reviews before posting here, so I think you should be safe with them. If you search JMP-1 Preamp on google, there's a guitar geek site that you can use as a reference to which big name guitarists ust them. I'm sure that you can get a good metal tone out of it though. They sound great. Oh, and Musicians Friend has soundclips (about 10) if you want to hear them.
IT's a SS sounding pre-amp, but if you pair it with a good power amp, like a Mesa or a VHT, you can get some good metal tones out of it.
Ya i was thinking of a Mesa 2:90 with 6l6s
