Ok I have been offered A Marshall JCM 900 Combo 100watts.

I was looking for a tsl601 or 2 or a DSL combo, But someone offered this.

I am considering it at about $800- $850, 2 years old with little use. I asked a few Qs about the tubes and age.

Here some things I need some help with.

Is this going to be way too loud for someone who plays in a garage band and does occasional small venues? Will it play low?

Will this suite my Rock, Metal needs? As I said I was looking at JCM2000's.

Anything else I should consider? This is an upgrade from an MG10

Thanks.

Get it. Even if you dont like it you can sell it for more than that. And it has a half power switch so you can quieten it up a bit

get it man, 100 watts is overkill but there is a half kill switch, and I use 60 watts for small-medium gigs, works great, for that price even get it anyways, if you can't crank it enough get an attuener.

a little bit overpriced, in my opinion.

I got my 4501 (50 watt 112) for $525 canadian.

Will suit rock & metal (but not really modern metal, imo), has a fair amount of preamp gain at low volume, sings at high volume.

In australia everything is overprice (Musical things anyway) about 2000 for a new TSL601

Very good deal, considering you're in Australia. I don't see how it can be two years old though... seeing as they stopped making them 10 years ago.... unless they've re-issued a combo?

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

I suspected that It was at least 10 years old. Cant find anywhere near as much info on them as almost all other Marshall series. I could get an attenuator but that another $200 Im not sure I have. Also I will probably have to change the tubes in this as soon as I get it.

If I got have a look at it and play it, Is there anything that people here with some experience can recommend I look out for? or check? I Dont know much about how to check the condition of an amp.
