Marshall JCM 900 4502

Peavey Valveking

Yes, i know the Marshall is in a different league when it comes to distortion but are its cleans better than that of a valveking???

everything about the marshall is better, VKs are crap, id take a vox AD50 over a VK.

What do you think is the maximum I should pay for it in Aussie dollars?
I think it has a high/low mode on it (50 w/25 w) so at 25w mode would i be able to get an alright sound at bedroom volume?

Only the 100watt models had the high low switch.

But you'll still be able to get decent tones at bedroom levels with a 900. My 800 is known to HAVE to be cranked...but I can still do classic rock stuff with the MV on like 1 or .5 and the preamp cranked.

As for your original question..the 900 has the best cleans out of the JCM series and its an all around better amp then the VK...by a mile.
