Our good friend Stratman323 is under the mis-guided impression that a Marshall is good for nothing except as something for people in leather trousers to use to prop up their flying V's. Lets prove him wrong!

Albert King played a Flying V (Lucy), but he was hardly a typical V player.

You have just disproved your own (non)argument, you cant judge a piece of equipment because you like/dislike someone who uses it.

The old Marshall circuit designs are good, up to the JCM800. Their new amps leave a lot be desired.

If you want the proper Marshall tone, buy a clone

That's exactly what I did, got a Ceriatone JTM45, however I disagree with the statement. The JCM900's and the TSL series were pretty bad IMO, but the new 'Vintage Modern' stuff sounds great!

I only use Marshalls and the best Marshall I have played is a early 80s Master Volume. Not sure of the model. If you play country or something like that then a Marshall might not be the way to go.

What don't you like about them? I think they sound as close to a plexi as anything since a plexi, I had the 50W head before I got my Ceriatone. Definetely a huge improvement on the JCM2000 models.

Oh I agree they're the best new Marshall for a while, but I still think they're fizzy and lack depth of tone when compared to 'better' amps.

The best mass produced amps available today, in my opinion, are the Blackstar range.....

i do prefer old marshalls. I do lots of live shows as audio engineer. Once there was a band: two guitar players, 2 Gibsons and two Marshalls - JMP superlead and one new Anniverwary edition. That new one sounded like crap comparing to the old JMP.
