danilaur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It always amaze me!"

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
50W tube amp.
I understood that there was quite a guitarist who used back on stage.
It is certainly a 50W lamp but so powerful


The sound is great especially after having allowed to heat for a good half hour.
Whenever it plays I am surprised with the quality of sound. clear and saturates


I play all styles above. Rock, Hard rock, funk.
The sound is typical saturates the JCM800 preamp with rule 3/4 saturation is beautiful and critalline, bubbles, but not too much. No effect that I tried to date happens to reproduce this saturation.
The sound is clear and slamming wish for funk rhythm.


I have since 1988.
I na'i not try many amps, but because the one is perfect I have not seen the usefulness me to try another.

The + is ca Simplicie use and time adjustment / sound quality report.
There are only very few pots, preamp, volume, bass, mid, treble, presence, and two entrees
Low and High.

The - is that to go from one channel to another (light saturated) must unplug the jack and plug it into the desired entry.

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?
All Tube Amp! 3 ECC83 preamp and 2 EL34 in power.

- What is the power dlivre?
Tration and officially 50W. But the power of all-tube amp is no longer admontrer because the big 50 Watt are stronger!

- What connection?
Jack 6mm (Standart in the gratteu)

- What are the rglages the effects? ...
Single-channel type. 2 input jacks (high and low). The settings are minimalist or rather "just right", preamp volume, master volume (general), Aquamarine, Meduim, bass, presence. After it has pedals to speak freely and you choose the set of effects that suits you better now .. The amp has no effects. It allows more of forging a sound!

Advantage: The comprehensive selection of effects! Pure sound.
Inconvenient: The effects are onreux


- The configuration is it simple?
There is nothing easier in the world a JCM 800 single channel!

- Gets it easy to sound good?
Childish, sounds, whatever the slight influence of qualisation are run of the mill and a grain of dot cut the breath! The legend Marshall is at your fingertips

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Oula ... No need for paperwork!


- Is it your style of music?
I'm a fan of the sound of John Frusciante of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but also to Mathieu Chedid and great classic rock like Gun's n 'Roses, Oasis, Clapton, Knopfler ... this amp and my tailor! It's not for lack of having had a number of other brands before.

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Levels guitars, I use a Fender Start typ 60 ', a Fender Telecaster 50' with Bigsby, an Epiphone LP Jr., and I used to pass an Epiphone SG400 Epiphone LP and trying a more than 97 Std 'from a friend .. Wow, and it made me happy as the happiness of my friends who play live on! Effect level, I remain in the conventional, Boss BD2, OS2, CS3, AC2, Rocktron chorus, tremolo, reverb and a Dunlop CryBaby Danelectro (Weakness).

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
I use it mainly for a clean sound that saturates the trs slightly with the sound of my fender, just makes me crazy! The real sound and its legendere marshall is in your ears! There's no quibbling, and those who do not like marshall are saying always the same after listening to the sound of this amp! Nothing to do with the other series JCM are not too bad, and really have nothing to do all the other Marshall General (MG series, Valvestate ...)
I want to stress that the sound is almost similar to see what bringing a lot of JMP, Silver Jubilee 2550 and other models of the genre.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
I take everything! I leave nothing .. The most clenching is to wait until the heater before removing the standby!


- How long have you use it?
More than a year and a half .. Record for me is to pass fender, peavez, H & K. ..

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Its unique grain followed by its simplicity Succes guaranteed sound moyenent ptite a battery of effects!

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes .. Finally, many depent ca! But I always RVer to acquire a JCM800 and this beautiful OCCAZ 'showed up I jumped on it!

- How do you report qualitprix?
Well, it enormously depent of who sells it! ... As this amp is available as a OCCAZ 'ca depent therefore the selling price. I pay 400 and in this case, the report price Excellent quality .. However from a 700 it becomes very expensive!

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Without hsiter!

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
All lamps 50W, 50W and big watts
Lamps of Origin: 3 ECC83 preamp and 2 EL34 in power
Hp: Rola Celestion G12-65 for older G12M70 for Newest.

Single channel amp with two inputs: a LOW (Clean) and HIGH (crunch)
Two parallel hp output, impedance selector (4-8-16 Ohm)
Level settings: preamp volume and master volume, three band eq (treble, middle, bass) + presence
No effects, no effects loop (-> Other series have jcm 800)


Super simple setup and use.
You branch and you got the sound ... but the type of guitar greatly affects the sound (I have a Squier Start which sounds great but with a les paul or sg sound will be much better because the amp has restored 100% the sound of your scratch)
No need for manual ...


The clean (low) with a good crunch when it is cranked. It's not a Fender but not buy a Marshall for clean sound in general.

The crunch channel (high) bin is nothing to say ...
Marshall is the sound, basically it's huge ...
Clean background has been pushed Hendrix
The high was AC / DC ...
At the same time the JCM800 series is the same circuits as the plexi, but its level is more "hard", more saturation, but the sound is very similar.
Think ay take it easy especially with the treble presence.

Given that no effect is not a very versatile amp. He has his sound. Following is an excellent base sound but good for me not need its sound effects serious ...

For now I play with at home but that limit: 2 on master after the neighbors are not happy ...


I use it for a week. This is my first tube amp and I regret my old Jim Harley BX-30 ... anyway ... the sound of the lamps
For € 500 its a great amp, I love the grain, I would definitely do it again this election.
