-Post sound clips
-Just help me out
- I played it once at guitar center but the guy didnt undstand how to work it; from what i understand it works mostly by controlling the volume knob.
- How much gain does it have
- can somebody explain the dynamic modes
- how does it respond to heavey gain pedals

Honestly I can't be all that helpful, but I will say...

With an amp that nice, using distortion pedals shouldn't even be considered.

I played it once and it sounds terrific, i just couldn't find my tone very well, it was either high or too low. one time a guy was demoing it for this girl and he cranked it and it sounded real vintage, nice tone for classic rock. Now.. to go off on another story, the girl sucked, she played the amp for 2 minutes played basically nothing and bought the amp. To my knowledge it's about... idk... 2,200 USD for the stack.. Barely played it and got daddy to buy it.

-If you want a haevy gain pedal, why do you want a marshall?


it just seemed liked when the gain was on 10 it need to go to 13 and then it would be perfect.

I dunno, I hear people saying "the vintage modern sux" and yet Paul Gilbert uses them now.

Given that Paul's been in the business for so long, you'd think he'd be able to tell a 'bad' amp from a good one, eh?

Yeah, but Zakk Wylde promotes the MG, so you never know how much they get paid for playing those amps.

Ya, i am jealous, cuz i'm there once a week playin and this girl strolls in there buying a marshall. But what i've heard, it's not a great amp anyway. I would prefer a JCM 800 for my style.

Certainly not out of the question.

+100

I think the whole concept of the JVM is retarded
IT does not have enough gain for it to be used as a hi-gain amp which can be cascaded down to lower gain. And all those annoying lower gain settings sound fizzy and annoying.

I don't see why anyone would buy a JVM if they could afford a Splawn!

I personally don't think that the vintage modern sounds great. I've only played it on the low dynamic range (supposedly JTM-45, plexi sounding) and it doesn't really sound much like a JTM-45 or plexi at all, kind of kills the point of KT66s. It has this really fizzy high end that I just cannot get used to. Maybe I didn't spend enough time tweaking. Its not bad or anything, I just wouldn't pay $1500 for it.

Although I do like the "Body" and "Detail" control.

In My opinion...
The Vintage modern is garbage sounding
It sounds like its lacking gain, definition, a powerful tight bass end, and has a very fizzy sound texture. Money could be better spent elsewhere

Quite honestly, I tried out a Vintage Modern at Guitar Center and Sam Ash (the combo version and the half stack). I was expecting amaaaazing tones out of that thing because Paul Gilbert played them, and wow, I was quite disappointed. I played it stock with no pedals or anything, and it sounded pretty bland. Gain wasn't really gain sounding, and it was hard to get a good tone out of it.
