It doesn't have to be a marshall but i love the marshall sound. Everyone says traynor are good. It can be a combo or head with cabinet. Please put links to specific models if possible. thanks

TS, don't listen.


If you want a good Marshall tone, this would not be the amp to get it.

What he says is lies. MGs suck, go with something else that people are recommending.

So, what would be the amp that he would want to get?

I listed two British voiced amplifiers that would suit him already.


I could also mention the Laney VC30.


Frankly, he'd need more than 600 bucks if he wanted good tone out of an actual Marshall.


I.E. the 1987x, 1959SLP, 2203, 2204, JMP, 1974x and the 1962 amplfiers.

The JVM and the VM to a certain extent.

Listen this guy, he's spot on.

I've never played the 40, but the ycv50 blue is pretty darn nice. The only thing I didn't like about it was it was a 2x12 and had 50 watts and I was looking for more along the lines of of 25-35 watts and a 1x12.

All the suggestions (besides this one) are good and I'd take a look at all of them.

In your price range... you actually *could* get a real Marshall if you wanted. You should be able to find a DSL or JCM 900 combo in your price range if you look around a bit, but neither of these amps have really the "classic" Marshall sound and are more modern. You might be able to score one of the 50w JCM800 combos if you're willing to wait a while, it's probably not going to be in perfect condition though, if it is, you got a steal

i'm definately love my B-52, might be a little biased, lol

But I think it can get close to the marshall sound. But of course, for 500$ its still not a marshall. For 600$ you could probably find something used somewhere

B-52s are bit more of a high gain american sound to me, no so much the british crunch.

Everyone is going to say Traynor YCV or similar.

But if you want one that REALLY sounds like an old plexi, try to find an old Traynor YBA-1 Bassmaster head.

Crate V50, Traynor YCV40.

I think Those are actually a bit more american sounding.
The YCV50 and V33 are british sounding imo
