I have a really good chance to get a marshall jcm 600 for cheap, its a combo 1x12. Was wondering how good these are for modern metal? Are they tube amps? I have a maxon od808 that I havent gotten a chance to use yet (dont have a tube amp) would I get good metal tones if I use that over the overdrive channel on the jcm600?

It won't be good for modern metal at all. The most metal it will do is Dokken, Ratt, and maybe Skid Row. Possibly some early thrash, but it simply won't stay articulate enough, and have enough gain to push modern metal, even with an OD.

What about hard rock? Will it be able to achieve a Wylde-like tone with an OD pedal, or some 80s metal?

is it voiced closer to the 800 or 900?

Last time I checked, it was basically a souped up Plexi, yet not in the 800 range...

at least, thats what my knowledge of them goes to.

That metal band? Surely they didn't use a jcm 600

I distinctly recall them sending out a bulletin on myspace regarding them selling one that had been used for their previous album.
