Marshall Trouble..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was recently thinking about buying a new amp, Im pretty much set on a Marshall, But im open to suggestion. I play Avenged Sevenfold, Children of Bodom, Stevie Ray Vaughn, A little blues, but mainly thrash pantera harcore metal shit. But yeah I was thinking either a Jcm 2000, or 900 but the 800 is only one channel, and a cab i need also, a 4x12 slant would be nice, either a marshall or a vox with vintage 30's four to be exact is what i want, I have a powerblock by crate I dont like it at all but my cabs I recived used for free and their shit, so I dont know if its just the cabs.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you play pantera and children of bodom. No marshall will provide the amount of gain and saturation you're looking for. Look at the marshall mode four for the over the top stuff. Other wise, you should try a Boogie Dual Rec or a Peavey 6505 +. those amps are what your after.

I play metal and mostly only metal and I personally was not satisfied with the "metal" sound of the JCM2000...if I were you, I'd look into more amps before you buy them, check out some Peavey 6505s if you set on buying a new amp, if not, 5150s. Rectifiers are also good, but maybe cost too much depend on how much you want to spend.

A used 5150 will be your best bet, you can pick one up for about $500 and it's all the gain you'll ever need. But, check out Mesa Dual Rectifiers, they're really good as well.

My 5150 doesn't sound too bad clean, I don't know what you preference is on them though, a lot of people will tell you its cleans aren't very good but they're fine for me. If you want better cleans, try to find a 5150 II, they have better cleans, it's the same as the 6505+. You can also always add better tubes that will make the clean channel sound better as well, or get it modded, which all of that will cost less than a new JCM2000 or Dual Rectifier.
