I was just on the marshall website and i was looking through some manuals like this one http://www.marshallamps.com/downloa...00_50%20hbk.pdf and i noticed that it says to switch on the power BEFORE the standby. i thought you were supposed to switch to standby and then to power

Definately not. The power switch for one allows it to warm up, while the standby switch is so you can start utilizing the amp. I'm not going to claim i know all about this, but it just makes common sense to me.

Even Randall, one of the best S.S. amp builders, are making some hybrid amps and they just don't score up to the all S.S. or all tube amps they build when it comes to tone. I've tried hybrid, S.S., and tube amps next to each other and just didn't like the hybrids. Maybe I need to play with hybrids more to uncover their better qualities, but I wonder if maybe a S.S. preamp and tube poweramp might sound better. Maybe that would capture some of the better qualities of both types of amps.

Kinda like a hybrid hybrid amp



I can see that. Granted i base my personal opinion on my old setup which had a Marshall AVT 50 head, and for the price i paid it had a pretty decient tone and volume.

Does it compare to the amp i have no? haha oh fuck no, but then again its over 3 times as much in price.

valve states are pretty mediocre. atleast the marshall ones. I havent played any marshall SS's to know if they sound better than marshall SS's but i do know my crate SS sounds better than my valvestate 8100. I mean for $200 its not a bad deal, but for that price, just save $100 more and get a used blue voodoo which is much better.

Well i currently got a valvestate 100R head and jcm900 cabinet. The overdrive distortion is pretty good. Gets a little crappy at super high volumes, but my digitech pedal sort of cancels that out now.

Im going to seriously look into one of the jcm2000 models. Got a trip to the music store coming up soon so ill have a look there.

Sorry if i'm reviving this thread, but theres some questions that i need answers for. To begin with, since I've just heard shit about the AVT150, I'm thinking about buying a TSL 60. Is this a good amp? And also, since my experince is only with 15 and 100 watts, will there be enough power in that head to make myself heard(I'm currently a lead guitarist) in let's say, a pretty large concert hall or something like that?

I have a Laney GH50L which is 50 w all tube and if I turn it up to two, its loooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuudddd. You usually mic the amp when you play larger venues so don't worry, 60 w will be enough.

if your going to buy a marshall save up and get a splawn. its well worth the money, and a used one cost about as much as a new marshall.

+1

ripoff is not the right term. scott splawn has become pretty popular in the modding world, especially in marshall style amps. he builds his own amps now that are definately voiced around the sound of his modded marshalls, but all handbuilt with top notch quality and parts. he also builds custom chasis's for his amps, some are replica marshall chasis's, so you can get a pro mod in a vintage marshall chasis(marshall logo and all.). he builds cabs too, which are well priced, and come loaded or unloaded with choices of certain eminence or celestion speakers.

Any of you guys know what setup chuck (death) used? The earlier recordings sound more like a jcm900 or some tube head, while i think the newer ones he used a valvestate or something... Just wondering cause i would be interested in trying to replicate his guitar tone.
