There are so many Marshalls available, but I want one with a nice vintage tone, that can give a british tone that doesn't sound buzzy. I want my tone to sound as close as Jimmy Page as possible. What cab/head would I need?

Oh and I was hoping for the price to be under 2000 dollars.

MG series, with the eq at 10 0 10. .....Seriously probably a JCM800 or JCM900.
I got some good guitars, yo.

A Plexi head or JTM45 head and Marshall cab.

If you're gigging often, i'll second any vintage Plexi or JMP head and a marshall cab.

If you are just playing at home, look at a vintage 18 watter or the ceriatone 18 watt combo. You'll get a much more authentic sound when you can crank it.

Why are you suggesting JCM's? He clearly has a budget for atleast a used plexi reissue, which will do much better for vintage tones, like jimmy page. Although honestly i always thought there was nothing special about jimmy's tone. Just a really gritty, trebly average telecaster through marshall tone to me.

jtm 45 or JMP. I'd also put in an Overdrive pedal like a tubescreamer, really helps to push it for Zeppelin and classic rock tones

Any inparticular Page tone your going for? Get the Plexi and a Solasound MKII Clone... that should get you very very close to the early tones.

I really like the tone of the early Zeppelin days. For the high-end, I love the tone for solos in Communication Breakdown and Good Times Bad Times (I think there's something about putting the wah in treble position involved). I also like the ballsy, but not too distorted tone of Living Loving Maid, Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love, etc.

Well definitely look into getting a MKII clone then, it's really the key to some of the earlier tones. BYOC (www.buildyourownclone.com) sells a kit that you can build yourself, or if you aren't into that you can get one prebuilt.

You're right about the wah being in the treble position for Communication Breakdown. I can't say he did it for Good Times, Bad Times though. I know he used a Leslie Speaker for that solo which gave it the swirly effect, that may have contributed to the trebliness of it. Pretty sure the Whole Lotta Love solo was done with the wah in the treble posistion as well, the studio version at least.

Hope that helps you some

Marshall Plexi Reissue prolly, or if you wanna spend some money get a vintage. If you get the reissue get original trannys aka mercury mags, mullards, and possibly get it HW. Also get a Greenback Cabinet. That's just about what Jimmy prolly used right there.

I'd say a 2203


What???

Why would you buy a JCM800 or 900 for Led Zeppelin?
