I was just wondering how well a JCM900 combo dual reverb would perform for doing hard rock? Also, is it a one trick pony, or can I turn back the gain, and get some softer tones out of it? Thanks

depends on what kind of hard rock you want, if its more modrn hardrock the 900 will perform better than the plexi if you want a more classic 70s hard rock the plexi will do better. But be warned that none of the plexis ive seen have master volumes so youll have to crank it to get overdrive.

The 900 can do hard rock ... but it really depends on what you mean by hard rock.

i also have a question about the jcm 900 combo and so I don't have to start a new thread ill post it here. How is it compared to a dsl? Like with teh 900 could i get tones similar to Trivium, Metallica, MCR, HIM, turbonegro?

900'll do hard rock nicely. although, that depends on how loud your going to crank it. the louder the better, a nice overdrive pedal wouldn't hurt either.

audio - dsl has more gain, and is more versitile, but the 900 sounds a little more natural. something about the dsl just wasn't right when i played it. still both are really nice amps.

Sorry - I should have defined this earlier on. I am really into well defined tone. Ie. no fizzy bassy, mess of a metal sounding amp. Also I don't like chainsaw treble - I like to use good amounts of gain, but I also like to keep my mids in there to a certain degree. Sure, I scoop'em some, but as little as possible. So that is why I say hard rock instead of just metal. I don't care much for the tone of a lot of metal. I like clear definition to my sound.

well the hole point of metal tone is to be as defined as possible...

(this isn't speaking for recto's... haha)


and if anything, marshalls aren't really defined at all...

Can anyone give me soundclips of the JCM900? ^ Yeah sorry, I totally didn't mean to diss metal tone. That would be really noobish. No, but I think you know what i am talking about when I talk about that occasional ultra hi-gain undefined tone. You know fizzy, popping just sludge. That's what I would like to avoid.

then avoid mesa tripple/dual recto's and randalls. and don't scoop your mids. i play metal and i know what you mean when you say things get sloopy when you remove mids from tone. and i didn't take is a dissing, just metal tones usually are as defined as possible.

Well a JCM900 is more for 90's hard rock. The JCM800 is for 80's hard rock. The JCM800 is more of a hard rock amp generally. A Plexi can do some classic hard rock and 80's hard rock with an OD, but a JCM800 is a also a good hard rock amp
