Marshall JCM800 Head with 2 marshall cabs, which would be a full stack, what would you compare the heaviest settings to? Does it have a lot of crunch? My mom's boyfriend has one, and will more than likely let me use it, I just want to know what to expect.

Let's put it this way;

Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King use Marshall JCM's.

And Marshall's are the amp's for crunchy tone. There is nothing on earth like Marshall crunch.

Does it have a lot of crunch??? It has a bit of crunch...like the Pacific Ocean has a bit of water!!
Watch out though. That thing will be LOUD when it's crunchy. Probably make your arm hairs move.
Have fun!

A full JCM800 stack is hmm... yummy. I love mine.

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.

Ya gonna need 'em.


I dont need 'em.

At least, usually. I run on a weber attenuator, so I can crank the bitch at band-practice volumes. (It's a tad modified by yours truly, more control over the attenuation level)

But for gigs? Never. I like to have "the echoes of the amplifier ringing in your head..." (Cheers to anyone who know where this citation comes from!)

^ You're not going to have any echoes in your head if you don't protect your ears. Your hearing starts to die from the moment you're born anyway, so it's wise not to speed it up!
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I've been killing it for the last 20 or so years using various amps and guitars, and well... I'm not deaf yet!

EDIT: A 100-watt tube amp is not all THAT powerful as many think. When you are playing in the open... well, it shows.

EDIT2: I remember a gig for which me and my friend were supplied with a wall of Marshalls... now, that WAS loud.

EDIT3: ^ I remember loads of unwanted feedback during that gig... The goddamned ****s squealed like no tommorow. Eventually, i got fed up and thrashed my Solotist with anger... The only guitar I've ever thrashed.

Sometimes I get my 4chan images mixed up.

Anyway, the JCM800 is the ONLY part of my gear that survived my recent gear-makeover.

And this means something.

EDIT: Timi: It highly depends on the person... I know many people who really lost their hearing because of such stuff. Mainly drummers, though.

Ah, you will be in for a surprise! This is THE metal amp of the 80's. I used to have the combo version and it was loud as hell. Anyway, to get a good heavy metal tone (close to Slayer although they used an EQ and stuff like that), try turning everything all the way up, except for the master volume (ears!) and the middle (use a low setting for this).
