I need to get a new amp. I love John Frusciante and i love his tone. In this video he has a cleaner sound with a tiny bit of dirt. I was wonder if a jcm 900 combo could do his tone hear. I would buy a jcm800 combo, but the 900 combo is alot cheaper so i was wondering if the are a lot different. Cause if they are close then im not gonna waste my money for something that is great, but i can get something very close to it for cheaper.


here's the video..

I'd go 800 or even 2000, the 2000s are actually really nice.

but the 800's are more pricey so i'd rather go for something cheaper, but if i really need the 800 for frusciante then i'll have to do it, but if i could do that out of a 900 that would be better!

How about the jcm 2000 dsl 401 i just watched someone on you tube play the chili peppers and it sounded sweet.

I say go for the 900 because they have better cleans, and can still get pretty close to 800 tones.
You wont hit froosh's tone though, but you can get descently close


and you definitely DONT want a JCM 2000.

What country are you from?

the JCM 800 will get you a much better RHCP tone and the amp itself is a bit nicer than the 900.

it seems REALLY nice for the price. Try to win that. I bet a lot of people will try to steal it when it comes down to the last 5 minutes of the auction so be careful.

I have a DSl 100 and it does awsome with the RHCP tone, also hendrix and a great SRV.
