So, after that Marshall MG amp thread, I don't think it's a good idea anymore. So what should I do with $500 possibly $1000? I like the sounds of a tube amp and I like Marshalls. So what should I do? Any help is good. Thanks...

Go to your local guitar store and try out all the tube amps in your price range, using your guitar or one just like it, and see which one you like best. That is what I always say, and I'm still right.

What kind of music?


I like Chili Pepper stuff, funk, John Mayer, Hendrix, grunge. Pretty much everything except shred, metal, and country.

for blues rock check out the CRATE Palomino series....those are legit, even though the general opinion is that Crate is mediocre
#6
JCM900 4102.

I have it and can personally vouch for it. It can pretty much hit most those tones right on.
#7
what are some of the stats on those? the crate and JCM900?

like price, watts, stuff like that?

check out Fender's tube amps. you could get anything from a Hot Rod Deluxe or Deville or a Deluxe Reberb. You could also look for a used Twin Reverb Reissue in that price range...mmmm....pure tube goodness....

NO!!! Not the 900... It got great cleans though... But otherwise... its a amp made for heavier music... like metal.

How about the JCM800? that would be good for you, i think
Basicly, the JCM900 is a JCM800 but with alot more gain.
Think of it

The 900 is basically an 800 with more gain. Which means slightly better low volume tones. With the gain down its teh perfect classic rock machine, but if you need more saturation for leads youve got it right there on the amp so you dont always need to screw up your tone with an OD pedal.

This is coming from the same guy that said a JCM 800 can't do Metallica tones, when we all very well know it was the amp used on their early thrash albums

Which is another thing...if its an 800 with more gain...why not go with the 900? You never know when you might need the extra gain. Musical styles change very fast...mine change weekly! Sometimes Im playin John Mayer and then a few days later Im playin the Bled. Just another thing to think about...

Go to as many music stores as you can and try out every tube amp in your price range until your fingers are bleeding. No one knows what sound you'll like but you.

For advice I'd say you can't go wrong with a Fender. Nicest sounding cleans in the business. You can get a Hot Rod or a Deluxe Reverb for decent prices nowadays, and the rest of the money you can save or use on a guitar or pedals. I'm gonna buy a Marshall JCM800 next, but I'm keeping my Fender because...damn it sounds good.

Pignose aren't to be ruled out, also consider the MESA, if you can find one in the price range (used, obviously) i tried one out really quiet, and it still had good tone.
