Ive always thought of them as being best for like hard rockish metal, like Zakk Wylde and Slash stuff.

Zakk Wylde is heavy metal, not hard rock (at least if you mean black label society). So there, you basically answered your own question, since Zakk Wylde uses a Marshall Jcm 800 (alhough it's modded for more gain, but whatever).

"Heavy metal" could mean anything from Iron Maiden to Pig Destroyer. They're quite different.

JCM800's and 900's are both good mid- to high- gain amps, they could probably handle most metal subgenres with a good OD. I wouldn't reccomend trying to play any Napalm Death on a Bluesbreaker, though.
#10
Nile, Slayer, Iron Maiden if I'm not mistaken all use Marshalls.

But it depends on the marshall. An MG is gonna get you nowhere but JCM800 heads are amazing for metal.

Marshall JVM is teh sex. Loads of gain.

The KK jcm800 wasn't my thing but it was still plenty heavy for any type of metal you want to do.

Standard fair marshall like a dsl or 900 could use a boost to get into the super heavy territory. Just my 2 cents.

They used modded Marshalls on Kill 'em All and Ride the Lightning, but they started using Mesas around Master of Puppets- era.

my guitar instructor has a JVM and says it has a crazy amount of gain.
depends on the voicing you're going for though.
Marshall probably wouldn't be my first choice for the death metal i play as i like the smoothness of 6l6s instead of the crunchiness of EL34s.
It's all preference.

Well thats qualitative. Some people say heavy metal and think Judas Priest, some think Cannibal Corpse. Without getting into the sub genre talk everyone knows and loves you can't be specific enough. If he's talking Iron Maiden, marshall is golden. If he's talking modern metal, many times marshall has a hard time keeping up. Just saying

My JCM800 absolutely rips with my OD and EQ, you probably need a noise gate though. It has that awesome raw Slayer, old Sepultura kinda tone, which I like a lot.

Anyway, the JCM's paired with an OD and perhaps and EQ will easily do pretty much all 80's thrash metal and NWOBHM stuff.

Marshall tube amps are the way to go. Push them volume wise and youll get the Marshall tone (which is godly imho). Use a drive pedal like a tube screamer or other OD pedal to drive em even harder.

marshalls do not automatically do like a Bullet for my Valentine tone tho. If thats what youre after, there are easier ways to get it. Marshalls can do all kinds of metal imho, but youll definately need some kind of pedal in front of a Marshall jcm to get the most modern (ie heaviest) tones.

No, when people say heavy metal they usually mean classic metal, as in Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, etc.

Of course, if you're referring to those particular bands, it's better pronounced "'evy met'l." With a heavy British accent of course.

Marshall amps have gone down the tube lately. I have no more respect for Marshall amps after they sold out to Korg. The quality and expense of their products coming out lately is piss poor. Go get a real amp, like a Mesa Stiletto or a Splawn if you want that Marshall tone.

Yeah, Marshalls can do metal. JCM800s and older Valvestates are fairly popular for thrash metal and death metal. It's all a matter of what sort of voicing you'd like it to have.

Yes.


Depending on the tone you like.


I use my marshall for metalcore.

I like it.

lol and i brought my marshall cause it was "smoother" than a 6l6 amp i was testing it against(ibanez somethingorother).
Not the sole reason i brought it.
But it made me not even think of the other amp anymore.


Anyways yes depending on what tone you like for heavy metal.
