I want to get a JCM800 combo. What does everyone think of the sound, I would especially like to hear from people who have one or have heard one. I would also like to know the model number of the combo with two channels rather than the single one.

Also does anyone know of a good site other than eBay where I could buy a good used JMC800 copy?

Many thanks guys.

why does everybody instantly recommend "copies" these days? Especially when originals are readily available.

Here are some model numbers:


ebay is the best mainstream site. other than that you'll have to look into many smaller, private sites

Because the copies are quality handwire, while Marshall and Fender's "Reissues" are mounted on a PCB. Even if we exclude the construction itself, the LAYOUT of the board makes a tons of difference. As a blues junior owner, I really prefer the dark tone of verB over whatever they sell new at L&M.

And with so many people wisen up to tubes, a working second hand JCM is expensive.

Nobody said anything about reissues

We were assuming if he was going to get a Marshall JCM 800 it was going to be a reissue. Older Marshalls are ridiculously expensive in my experience. The copies are called copies for a reason: they're copies. Meaning they should pretty much sound the same as a Marshall or Fender or any other sweet amp maker with minimal differences.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

I had the 4212 model (50w, 2 speakers). It was insanely loud and I needed an OD to get into metal territory. A real man's combo, if you ask me. Such a classic, you can''t go wrong with it.

Really? From what I've seen, a used JCM 800 head can go for like 800-1000 bucks in good condition. Reissues are double that.

clapton-floyd, I am also looking at the same thing you are

Yesterday I went to Guitar Center and bought an AVT50 used and I am returning it today :S, Yesterday I played with a JCM800 head that has a Master volume and you can get decent tone at low volumes (I live in a condo) however the head + the cab are BIG BIG BIG for a condo + Hard to carry around to friends houses + it was the single channel version.

My ideal would be the 4210 if it sounds as good as the resissue I tried yesterday.

4210 + Vintage 30 speaker

I heard the FX Loops of the JCM 800 models that had them are no good. Wonder how they sound putting the pedals through the input. Anyone knows about this?
