A few weeks ago i decided i was going to Purchase a JCM800 as soon as i get the money( from inheritance, its getting held up with tax and such) but i was going by Musicians friend prices, even though i live in Canada, so i thought around 2000 canadian was enouph for it. but its probobly going to be ALOT more, right? so for around 2000 canadian what alternatives are there? i cant find any info on Orange Rockers so i dont know thyre price, but i know they are good. any other suggestions (by the way, its best if its Marshall because i cang et slight discounts on them, and support my Uncle's buisness)

Keep it local (well, in Canada anyway): Traynor Custom Special
ESP LTD EC-256 and a Fender Deluxe VM

You could get a pretty sweet mesa combo, and probably a good marshall.


Arent Mesa amps more for Metal? im looking for Classic Rock/Early Metal (think Zeppelin to Iron Maiden to Pantera kinda stuff, not Cannibal Corpse lol)

Has anybody ever played either a DSL 50 or DSL 100? i was just watching a gear video for it and it sounds pretty nice, but then again its a Marshall gear demo so they could be leaving out that bad stuff, so anybody have any experience wit them?

Traynor YCV50 Blue. Should get a great classic rock and hard rock tone from it.


I tried one of those actually, and i hated it. I couldnt get a good tone from it no matter what, and i was using a 3000$ Gibson, and then i played a SRV Signature Strat and it just sounded really wierd, and i played around with all the knobs and i couldnt dial in what i wanted. The gain channel plain sucked, but maby i just had a bad model, or mabey it wasnt exactly the one you were talking about

Maby thats it, dunno. im use to my MG and i always have the Gain Cranked on it, and i havent touched the dials in months. dont want to screw up what little tone it can achieve haha.
