Looking at an 800 50 watt half stack for $1600. It's 17years old in mint condition. Can I get good tones at stage volume without a pedal with this? I will try it out of course but looking for feedback. Jeano your the marshall master. got anything? Just looking for that FULL Social D sound. Also is it hot enough (without a pedal ) for the buttery leads? I'll be using a les Paul (either epi or real) Gold top with mini pups by the way.

Guess not..did not like the sound. The tone was kind of mono. I'll stick with the trebly 900. Just can't beat the tone for the dollar amount. Don't have 7grand for the real marshalls.

one thing you might wanna keep in mind when looking for an 800, alot of them were snatched up in the late 80's and modded for more "metal" like uses...ex. zakk wylde had a sig series 800 -different from the stock models like what me and jeano have.

have you played a dsl100 (jcm2000)? they're easy to come by and they're very versitle. if you can find a 50w 900 you'll more than likely pay less, but dsl 100s are good amps.

I had one of those JCM200's I freaking hated it. The distortion sounded thick like an old solid state peavey.....it honestly kind of sounded like a line 6 TRYING to sound like a Marshall...I had it for about 2 years, and sold it when I got my boogie.....just not a big fan....but everyone has on opinion.

did you have a tsl or dsl? i've heard dsl's sound a shitload better, but i havn't played a tsl. i have played a dsl and it sounded great. i didnt play it for very long and didn't really crank it but i liked what little i heard.

i had bought a 1960b cab and had to take it back because it wouldn't fit in my truck for the trip back to TN. it was at the GC in kileen TX right outside of Ft hood. when i took it back there was an older dude playing the dsl100 with a 1960av cab and they decided to make it a full stack when i brought the b cab back. he was playing the half stack with the av cab and it sounded ok. but when they added the other cab he was rocking blues on it and it sounded amazing cranked. he wasn't feeling it at first with the one cab but he decided to buy the whole stack. i felt bad for taking the cab i just bought back, but my buddy that worked there was pretty stoked about selling the full stack.

they make a 50w to and for some reason i think it would suit chris's sound pretty well.

Mine was a DSL...but the DSL and the TSL are the same amp, just the 2 and 3 channel versions. (double super lead, tripple super lead)

I played mine through the same jcm800 1980B cab that I use now...I just didn't dig it...but again, you and I are looking for different things tone wise...I was playing metal at the time..so I was just looking for as much gain as I could get, and I didn't dig what I got...only reason I bought that head at all was because it was when I was working at "Mars Music" while it was going out of business, and we were pilfering shit pretty heavy at that point...it was the last head left in the store, and I rang it up as a Marshall T Shirt and paid 20 bucks for it.....which was killer, because I was playing through a Randall Warhead combo at that time...so the step up to a half stack was rad...but again...I had clean, and nasty...I never experimented with anything in between...fuck...I gotta get back to work....in the comcast call center...so right now while you are on hold because your cable isn't working...I am bullshitting on this forum.

On Demand is a piece of shit....power cycle your cable box.

All of the info is stored on a server, and when your ON DEMAND doesn't work, it jsut means the box isn't connecting.

Pull the Power cord out of the back of your cable box, leave it out for a minute, and plug it back in. Let the box cycle back up, and reconnect to the server..that'll take about 20-30 minutes....as soon as your channel guide repopulates, your on demand will work too...if it doesn't give me a yell and I'll tell you to fuck off.
