Death metal distortion
 
Can someone tell me which marshall makes the best Death metal distortion? :homer:

guitar_demon 2005-03-12 14:35

why marshall? im not saying their bad (i have a tsl works wonderfull) but you shouldnt just say you want a marshall and only a marshall try out other amps aswell. i ended with my marshall cause it was the best out of the ones i tried but thats personal preference and i didnt get to try all the heads i would have liked too. but the jcm 2000 tsl 100 is a killer head IMO, nile uses the dsl 100 and they have an awsome tone and imo the tsl blows the dsl away

Marshall's weren't made for Death metal, and I'm surprised Nile gets the sound they get outta them. Marshalls are kick ass, but when I tried them out, I couldnt really get a good death metal sound. Guess you really gotta crank them.

GEAR talk mofo.

which ones did you try out cc

DeathCS 2005-03-12 14:50

which ever the 2000 one is.
and various other ones of which I dont remember. but I have tried the M4. Apparently the shockwave (which I own) is Crates answer to that.. I'd say the shockwave definitely won.

A cranked up JCM800 sounds fucking awesome.

guitar_demon 2005-03-12 15:40

powertube saturation bud...

a lot of guys who use jcm 800's have the gain circuit modded. they also swap out the tubes. i have 2 marshall valvestate 100 heads. i actually prefer them to any of the other marshalls, including the 800 and t/dsl's. but the best amp i've ever used is a mesa rectifier. single, dual, triple. doesn't matter. they're great. the peavey xxx and 5150 are also good. it's cool if you want a marshall but if you're buying it for its name you should really think twice. there's better amps to be had.

i have a marshall valvestate but i need a fuse so ive never gotten to use it. but i want a mesa boogie triple rectifier.

nah G_D, the gear talks just a pretty face. ;)

yeah, a JCM800 would do the job nicely.

I thought stupid noobs would be the reason I'd leave this forum sooner or later, but if they can keep their replies this hilarious, I'm staying forever.

Slabbefusk 2005-03-13 09:53

Where have you been man? I haven't seen ya for a while!

G_urr_A 2005-03-13 10:05

Eh? Me? I've been around. Not posting much though. Last few days I've been involved in a little bit of debating in the chitchat.
And in case you weren't talking to me, just forget this.

Slabbefusk 2005-03-13 10:26

:rofl:
you CAN use them for death metal, but theres other amps that suit death metal better.

The JCM 800 is more of a clean sounding ac/dc type amp sound with it just being stock. Some people modify their JCM 800 head to get more distortion out of it or they just use a distortion pedal.
The thing with tube amps is they all sound a little different even when you buy the same model that someone else has. And that being said it depends on what you are running through them too ( guitar,Pickups etc.)
The best sound that I have gotten from a JCM 800 for DEATH METAL is a line 6 uber metal pedal with the insane drive or a metal zone. Or maybe even a line 6 pod. An EQ or even a sonic maximizer in the effects loop will always make things sound better.
The best amp I have played on for death metal to me so far
Just pluggin straight in to it for the distortion is a AMPEG 140ch head.
Its not tube but to me with a sonic maximizer in the effects loop it sounds awesome!!!!!! I never liked tube distortion. I like the power that they can push out and would use one for the power and run a pedal into it. :sickface:
