Nah, go for an 800


it all depends if hes going to play modern rock over classic rock.

modern=JCM900
classic=JCM800


IMO...

i own a JCM 900 and it's awesome. awesome for metal with an overdrive pedal or compression pedal. good for rock without the pedals. clean is good with some reverb.

yea i know but think about what else theyre using man. top of the line guitars, a racksystem thats like 10 stories tall, pro-recording gear...etc.

i was generally speaking.

either one of them can do either sound with a good booster pedal.

I hate it how you can't have a conversation about Jcm900's without Jcm800's being mentioned and compared.......... They are two different planets.

Its only because when anyone says 900 most people turn around and say there not as good as 800's, like I did !

the 30th anniversary ones? no, never tried one but I've read about them and they seem great.

also I think because their name are so similar as well. They should have called JCM900's something different.

Yeah, there the ones. Ive had two and they were both unbelievable. One of the best clean sounds ive ever heard. ( I think Satriani uses one for his clean sounds ) The crunch channel is like an 800 and the lead is in the 900/2000 ballpark. Wish I'd never got rid.

Well they tried to get furter away with names with the jcm 2000! Not that different though.


well the JCM2000 dual/triple super lead really DO sound way more modern...and theyre able to achieve much heavier gain and such.

ive seen A LOT of bands that have two guitar players and where ones playing a JCM2000 and the other is playing a Dual Recto.

the Bled being my favorite of those...

i personally like the jcm900 over the 800, mainly becuase of its versatility on its own (without extra pedals, racks, etc)

and the two channels on the jcm900 is a lot more convienient than the 800's single. nuff said.

Yes......but my theory is.....

More great players use the 800 rather than the 900
Knowing this fact will give you much confidence in playing through that amp
More confidence, hence, better playing....

I mean if you were a REAL NEWB,
which would you rather choose a Marshall MG100DFX (which is like in EVERY STORE)
or something named Hughes&Kettner Edition Blue ??

Name sells......
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Well i owned a JCM900 but traded it for a JCM800 and prefer the JCM800. But its all taste.

There you have it......... It's all taste...

If you have the taste of a certain SUCCesfull artist, then...... you'd probably have his success............ not guaranteed though///

Drake were used in most 50 watters til the late 90's, then Dagnall transformers started being used in both 50 and 100w amps.
