Great rock amp but weaker cleans
This has been a workhouse for driven sounds and has loads of power for any venue. The driven tones range from a little broken up to saturated, compressed and mean. The cleans let it down though. They aren't bad but they lack character and definition.
The head is as solidly built as any marshall and will handle being on the road it's whole life, without any complaints at all. The controls are typical marshall. Easy channel switching with buttons or pedal and all the pots feel sturdy and have a good level of resistance. No sloppy pots here. A big plus for the gigging musician.
Solid amp and come at very reasonable prices.
Amazing amp all around, anything from Pop/Punk to Metal to Country.
This amp is an amp that is used constantly in my studio. I use this head with a JCM 900 4x12 cabinet, and it gets those classic Marshall tones everyone is talking about. What people do not realize about this amp is that the clean tones are AMAZING. They sparkle, chime, just like any other amp would. But they are original to Marshall. These tones are not meant to emulate a "Fender Clean", or a "Vox Clean". These are Marshall Cleans. I find I have to set this amp a little bit brigher then my normal settings to get the clarity in the overdrive that I am looking for. When you switch to the clean channel, since there is only 1 EQ for 2 channels, the cleans are a bit bright. I woulod recommmend buying an EQ pedal for your clean tone, to bring out the bass frequencies and tone down the highs. I would recommend this amp to anyone who is looking for that classic Marshall look, and is someone who loves that british tone. Great amp overall, and have had no problems.
Great sounding Marshall amp
I have been playing through my dad's old JCM 2000 for a couple of years now, and it has to be one of my favorite sounding amps. I mainly use my PRS Custom 24 through it, and play blues rock stuff on it (a bit of clapton, stones ect.) and it just gets the perfect sound for me.
