Ask me how I know!?

I know, I know, wrong website, blah blah blah....

I know we have a few, just wondering how many of us are here and what Marshall amp are you using these days?!

I stayed away from them for years, not knowing which one I should get, but I got lucky on my first try with a Mini Jubilee 20W combo with a 5W switch; the amp is versatile enough for me, has a great clean channel, and some great Marshall crunch on the gain channel.

Before purchasing this amp, I went through countless amps that were supposed to do the Marshall thing. A lot of them came close, and I still have several of them, but none of them do what the mini Jube does. I finally found (and Marshall finally came out with) the amp I've always wanted. No pedals needed, but of course, some of them enhance the great tone. A little bit of delay or reverb is about all I need to add. Great effects loop also.

So, let's hear about your favorite (current) Marshall amp! This will probably be a short thread..... ;)

Me!

Back in the ‘80s I was stationed near Bletchley and actually had a connection to Marshall through Ken Bran. I sold Marshall to other GIs. At the time I had a 5275 and a 1936.

I left England with the same cab and a ‘73 Artiste’.

Currently I have a DSL40 and a DSL1 micro stack. Half stack, really.

I’ve built a couple Marshall clones, as well. A JTM45 and an 18 watt TMB.

Why do I keep fixing things that work?

2006 DSL100 and a 67' 50 watt head. Missed out on the deal that Sweetwater had but sure wished I hadn't! I have an old Creamback that I wanted to try, but alas just couldn't afford it at the time. It will happen someday and I'll be ready to put that old gal in!

I lost my big Marshalls in a hurricane.

Pretty sure I've owned 7 so far, including two JCM 800's.

MG250DFX in the house now.

You would not believe how many people at jams or gigs think this thing is a tube amp.

That 5275 I had back in the day kicked ass. It was SS.

I’ve been prowling Reverb for one just for kicks.

I've only played a DSL 40C with the creamback, but love it.

Love 'em! I've owned several over the years, but none in the house now. I really don't know why; I may have to fix that.

You really need no pedalboard with a great Marshall amp.

I never thought Marshalls were for me. I bought into that Marshalls don't do clean trope and I'd long quit lstening to 'rock' - but there was a certain 'wildness' about the tone that intrigued me.

However I realised that I rarely now play totally clean and that I'd been listening to the wrong Marshalls.

I much prefer the orginal Bassman based JTM45 and my little JTM1 half stack has had exclusive use for the last year plus.

I have always been a Fender fan . Owned most of the key amps(59 beri, ddri, etc) and even a few of the Hot rod line. I bought my forst and only Marshall a few months ago (a dsl40c) and am a big believer. I see more Marshalls in my future. Have my eye on the Silver Jubilee or something similar. Love the tone .

I have always really liked my Marshall JCM 900 4500 Hi-Gain Dual Reverb head (EL-34) and 9004 Series rack preamp.

Both have two very usable channels with a thick, full overdrive on the distortion channels and a versatile rhythm channel that can also get a nice moderate overdrive if you want when turned up.

The JCM 900 can be switched between high and low power (50 watts pentode or about 25 watts triode) and has a speaker simulated preamp out. The 9004 preamp has an FX loop that can be switched between parallel or series and a speaker sim headphone output.

I have an early 80's Marshall JCM800 50-watt head and 1960A cab, a DLS40C combo and a AVT50 head at home.

Where my band practices, I have a DSL100 head and two Marshall 2x12 cabs.

Me like Marshall! (:oD

I picked up a DSL1 head and the 1x12 cab recently.

I'm happy with the thing thusfar - still working on going past my happy normal settings to see what else is in there.

I wouldn't be happy with it as my only amp, but...well, I'm at the point in my life where such things aren't an issue.

Like budg, I have always been a Fender kind of guy. I took advantage of the Sweetwater deal a few months ago, and now own a DSL40C. I love it (stock speaker), but have a hum issue that I am trying to wrap my arms around.

Peegoo - That's my preferred stage rig with this hard rock band. Also, using two 2x12 cabs with a Marshall head is a GEEZER STACK by my definition. (:oD

ps - I played a gig with this band last week and used one of my Fender 63 Vibroverb RI combos because I needed something relatively lightweight that I could set up quick and tear down quick.

I'll post a picture later but mine is a JTM45 with a 4x12" full of greenbacks.

I hadn't taken it out of the house because it's so big but I hauled it to a friend's last week. He drums hard enough I could run it in the sweet spot and it's glorious.

Since I recently scratched my itch for an 18w, I could see building a JTM45.
