here's the criteria
- has to be all tube head (going on a mg cab)
- preferably 50 + plus watts tube
- 2-3 channels (a 4th channel wouldn't hurt)
- good cleans at the least
- a solid overdrive channel that could hit a lot of distortion (varies from acdc like things, blues, classic rock, hard rock, to metal such as metallica, megadeth etc. i have a tubescreamer but would like to avoid getting a really really really low gain amp and than overdriving it)
- budget (i will definitely, actually most likely, go used) = say 500-750 (USD) ?

alright
thanks

i know but a one channel amp would just be a drag
that would be too difficult
i'll mess with that though and if it works than i'll look into it

Save more money, and less demands from your amp.

Oh Noesss!! Teh M4r$ha11 0n1y h4z 1 ch4ann31!!!

Just get the Marshall. It is the best you can get in the price range unless you would rather have a worse tone with two channels. Then Traynor YCV50 for you.

what about the jcm 800 2205 or 2210?
do they lack in tone compared to the 2203?
also they don't have any headroom for cleans?
is that true?
surely they have to if they're 100 watts tube

2205 is a good two channel alternative

I never knew the difference between the 22_ _ models

Is it that the 2203 has one channel and the others have two?

so what do you do if you're looking for a amp that isn't run anymore (such as the jcm 800)
how do you try it out

You look no craigslist and in the paper and go to the persons house to try it out. Local stores probably have some used ones there too. You can always try out the reissue and expect the original to be at least as good. The originals are almost always better.

I think 2203 and 2204 have one channel and 2205 and 2210 have two
