Neither. The tone is very bad for both

For under 400 you'd be better off getting a combo

If you have that much cash, buy a real marshall combo.

both of those amp's aren't marshall.

Yeah, your better off looking for a tube combo in that price range
Peavey Classic 30 perhaps?
#7
I think the Valveking has a nice tone for classic rock. A Vox Valvetronix is also a good choice for your budget.
#8
Well, for "Calssic" rock, which I assume is kind of like classic rock: I'd get a Peavey classic or a Laney of some kind, whatever is more available to you.

Peavey Classic 30 would do you well.

The Valveking doesn't do Classic Rock as nicely as you'd hope. ^^

The MG and AVTs are ridiculously overpriced, horrifically bad amps.

And the 30w Classic 30 will easily have more than the amount of volume than you will need. Don't be put off by the wattage; because it is tube it puts out more volume than an SS amp.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
#10
Laney, Peavey Classic, or Crate Palomino/V-series. Any of those and an OD pedal, you could get whatever tones you wanted.

Definately do not get either of those two. Go with a Peavey Classic 30, a Crate Palomino V32, or a ValveKing. All of em have a much better classic rock tone than either of those SS heads.
#12
get a laney vc.they sound like the old marshalls when they were still good amps

Like njhux said, but you should probably go for the JCM800 over the 900 if classic rock is what you seek.

It's a nice amp but JCM800 is better for classic rock. DSL401 is more modern sounding and has more gain, forsaknazrael I'm not sure why you think it dosen't do high gain well? It does it better than JCM800's but it's not exactly metal either. But metal isn't the point of Marshalls.

Unless your Zakk Wylde and love your slamming and crushing MG's

EDIT: tenaciousjb, the year is 2008. The heating problems were solved years ago. And I'm not even going to start on you calling it cheaply made when you own an MG...
#26
The AVT is good. If you have little cash, just go for the AVT.
UG people will slaughter cheap choises, get used to it.

Eh, what I'm saying is that it just doesn't excel at anything.

I disagree with your JCM800 statement. Plenty of metal artists use or have used a JCM800.

Chances are that they'll have been modded to give extra gain. not that a standard jcm800 won't do metal easily with an OD.

Yeah but as Lemoninfluence said they have other additions to it. JCM800 with additional gain is an 80's sound IMO, while the DSL can get some very modern high gain sounds too. I have always thought trying to do any kind of death metal with a Marshall is just abuse though.

Quote by forsaknazrael
No, I really don't like that amp. Plus, it's a totaly rip off in the States, for what it offers: it doesn't do classic rock that well, and it doesn't do higher gain that well.


but the poster isnt in the states he is in the uk so marshall amps are cheaper over here

Quote by tenaciousjp
bad heating problem and made cheap


only in the older ones, the amps from about 2004 onwards have the overheating sorted

for £400 you could get a jcm800 2x12 combo from ebay or look in the local papers, or if your very lucky i seen a 1x12 jubilee go for £425 not long ago in ebay

Right...meaning other better amps are also in his range.

Kerry's King's is un-modded. He just has an EQ boost.

So hold on a second mr very likely a troll.

I suggested a JCM800 for his music tastes. What you are saying is you don't know which is worse an MG or a JCM800.
