hey how can this amp do classic rock wise, on the od channel at normal volumes, and on the 25 watt setting of the 50 watt (head or combo) cranked up
i know it can reach thrash gain levels, and its great for modern rock and cleans, but i'm just wondering how well it does classic/hard rock
thanks

Well, if this amp can reach ridiculous gain amounts, plug in a guitar with moderate output pickups (alnico II is good for that) so that the lower output pickups will counterbalance the gain highness of the amp, slash used it to good results with his setup. Put the gain at lower than 10 with the same lower output pickups and you will more than probably hear a nice rock tone ya !

I know Page&HammettFan uses a JCM900 for all his Zep covers and other classic rock stuff and he sounds great with the amp. So you could maybe ask him, of course he can also nail the covers note for note so the tone doesn't have to be close, but his profile has some nice MP3's of the amp.

I think that any Marshall JCM should be able to do Classic Rock, but I'm not too much of a Marshall fan. (I got a bad taste in my mouth from my MG)

I did get some ****ing awesome tones out of a JCM 2000 super lead combo. I played it at guitar center with my explorer.

I play out of a jcm900 100watter and I think it gets a decent classic rock sound if ya play with your settings a bit and only turn the gain up to 10 not past that sooo...
Treble - 5
Mid - 4-6
Bass - 4-6
Presence - 7(you could really play with that)
Gain - 10

It works on mine for a more classic sound

Crank the clean channel and get a tube screamer to boost it. Classic Zep/Sabbath all the way!
