    50watts tube, it is on the basic marshall: eq 3bandes more presence dosage preamp and master.

    two channels, one clear, one satumax.

    UTILIZATION

    it is very simple. without trying too it falls on its type AC / DC, but personally I can find the sound of a plexi putting me on the clean channel with the preamp to the max, this is where this amp best accept pedals. I put only 9 because you can not switch from one channel to another without a jack plug.

    SOUNDS

    It suits my style of music (note that this amp is worth it if you plug in the right hp, in my case the Celestion g12-65, those who have "upgraded" to the g12-70 have missed them: )

    The clean sound is very nice, crunchy to perfection, the distortion is fat without bee!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year, this amp is missing is a reverb (mine has an added effects loop), this is the best combo that is to play rock group, and it is more robust !

By pushing the knob to lower the fever has a 8 to 4 mdiums prsence a 3-4 and a 7, you get the sound of 90s rock band french (sheriff, oth, pkrk, rats, and many others ...). With a sound tlcaster softphone, Y has even marshall, which provides configuration of rglage on marshallamp.com
    It's crazy that all possibility
    For its clean, with good sound rglage was kind amricain Gun's

    OVERALL OPINION

    OCASI bought seven months ago, 82 amp fly in a nine hp
    The problem with this is the weight chard, Putin ca PSE! But, you need to know to do souffrire plaisire.J have had for a long time the fender, I saw anti marshall.Je DPOS in a store and I tried it (just like this) and well the next day I passed an ad to sell my Twin Reverb 70 who had also made good and loyal sercice.

    Ahet 600 euros fly in and saw the monster qualitprix the report is incredible.
    I will do it again without hsiter choice. I had never jou on the marshall, and found fault fender masterfully indtronable.Et
    A five-heity
    The twin-a
    A twin-reverb

    It should be expected on a clean sound, but that's another planet, you're you're m'impression THE KING ON THE WORLD try and understand you.

    NB: Unlike the picture of audiozine, the guitar input 2 are arranged a cot and not the other one above the other (if anyone knows what it is I d 'm interested ...)

    UTILIZATION

    Trs simple config so very easy handle. Have a good sound is very simple if not childish.

    The trs rglages are not effective but that is because it is passive, then, by turning a button you change the "CHARACTERISTICS" other. It's a bit hot but we understand there is rev quickly, the more it has a more musical sound

    SOUNDS

    The clear sound (um, between the "low") is not the best in the world but is suitable for phases in the clear when we play the stuff that make Bourin / quiet / Bourin / quiet ...
    Without pedals between the blade and the throat, between the high, it has a sound that will quiet the sound of blues AC / DC (especially when the amp is pushed)

    To get the sound, I tried a variety of pedals before falling on the one that suits me. the problem is that this amp Ragit too much of distortion pedals and overdrive. The mtalzone for example, that I detest on my other amp (Roland Jazz Chorus 50Watts) or even any other transistor amplifier (Marshall Valvestate test and laney 80w 80w) on the JCM monstrous sounds: a sound with that I play both the Pixies, from NOFX, the Black Desir. Each note rings and remains inteligible the sound is clean but rock'n'roll. When I need a more CRAD or even a clear sound continuously, I pass on the roland + DS7 Ibanez.
    I put 9 / 10 to find her because I have a ajoindre pedals but once I got a good Found his madness.
    Prcison I do not play guitars q'avec teams of micro simple Tlcaster ESP + or Jim Harley ST30 (strato copy, which I do not know by what miracle, sounds trs tr s good!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Solid, simple, just turned 20 years and did not flinch one bit since I bought it 6 years ago.
    I prt lot of friends to record, all fell in love. ("No, I do not sell !!!")
    I like its simplicity even if the flange at the versatility in terms of its clear. on the other hand for everything saturation and overdrive is so cool!
    I came across the OCCAZ: 2500frs there's no photo: qualitprix exxxxcellent report.
    I do not regret this purchase even if right now I'm more attracted to the fender and more nervous TNU

    See below,
    I put 8 because there are two entrances, which makes a good vintage charm but may practice to switch from clean to distorted sound. But do not panic by playing with the volume knob of the guitar you get a clear sound not so bad, that's hard crunch. You just have to possess a fairly progressive scratches on the volume.
    No effects loop either, which is not essential in itself but as the amp does not have reverb ... it is not recommended to put a reverb directly between the guitar and amp, the reverb wrong signal distortion and it comes out a sound awful.

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration is very simple, a very efficient but not qualisation complete, bass, midrange, treble and presence (it is effective).
    There are not many possible configurations, but given the sound that comes out of the beast ...

    SOUNDS

    I play rock, blues-rock and this amp is perfect for those styles.
    I also have a huge penchant for stoner-rock, which ncssite sound fatter, bigger.
    I is obtained by adding a few pedals:
    MXR Zakk Wylde overdrive, it allows me to boost my solos very effectively, or make the sound fatter for many prominent rhythm.
    Big Muff-it allows me to have a very very fat on the good rhythm, I shuffled to the marshall of saturated and it makes very well, the dynamics of the amp is the sound of shuffled the pedals.
    My guitar is a Gibson SG standard, the ADI is built for rock, but I dja ssay other guitars in the amp and it sounds also very good, the single coils give a more blues following positions, it is very enjoyable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for more than six months, this amp is a gem, very musical.
    I pushed a few times in rpeter and the sound is amazing, never showy and always relatively clean while remaining very rock and blues. Group is apparent from the mix, too even after the other guitar amp! However, it is very heavy, nearly 35 kilos. He looks very solid, but it's still a tube amp so fragile.
    The effects loop is dispensable, but would not rverbe t refused.
    Both channels are a false problem, just lower the volume of the guitar to make the sound clearer. All these features make the charm of the amp, and finally it accommodates.

    A classic Marshall combo.

    Marshall 4104 JCM800 Master Volume Lead [1981-1989]Published on 07/05/11 at 10:20
    The Marshall JCM 800 4104 is 50 watt, 2x12 combo. It is powered by two EL34 power tubes that drive the two Celestion G12-65 speakers. I have also seen this model with 6550 power tubes and Celestion G12T-75 speakers. The 4104’s controls are Presence, Bass, Middle, Treble, Master Volume and Preamp Volume. There are two input jacks; high and low sensitivity. This is a very no frills amplifier, but what it lacks in features it makes up for in tone.

    UTILIZATION

    It is extremely easy to get a good tone from this Marshall combo. One thing that should be noted about the single channel JCM 800’s is that the tone controls are cascading, meaning that turning the Bass knob will affect the Treble,......

    UTILIZATION

    It is extremely easy to get a good tone from this Marshall combo. One thing that should be noted about the single channel JCM 800’s is that the tone controls are cascading, meaning that turning the Bass knob will affect the Treble, etc.

    SOUNDS

    I use this amp with a Gibson Les Paul Custom. I have used a Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive and a Fulltone Fulldrive II to boost the amp for higher gain tones and achieved excellent results with both pedals. This is a one channel amp and it is designed to sound overdriven, so getting a completely clean tone can be difficult. Using the low sensitivity input and rolling back on the guitar’s volume knob will yield a passable clean tone, but it will not sound like a Fender, nor should it. Like most other tube amps the Marshall 4104 sounds best when the volume is turned up a bit. I usually play with the Master volume around 4 on the dial. This starts to work the power tubes a bit more making the amp sound more dynamic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This amp is designed to do one thing and it does it extremely well. Some may call it a “one trick pony,” but I personally love what this amp does. It is a classic Marshall sound in a compact combo, but is still loud enough for any rock band or live setting.

    All tube amp, 50 WATTS
    Two inputs (LOW and HIGH)
    Equaliser and fairly basic but effective presence of knob + (very efficient)

    Impossibility to move from low to high without disconnect / reconnect (really bad)

    UTILIZATION

    Amp super simple to use, effective the first time.

    Between the Low, the sound is warm, a little crunchy when you push the watts. It's not Fender, but with a good guitar, the sound was really good.

    Between the High, was a big crunch (or overdrive) suitable to rock n roll Marshallian. I never heard a sound as crude as that typ l. Excellent.

    The major disadvantages of the beast resides in the fact that it is single channel, so it is clear, is it crunch. No possibility to switch (even with an A / B box). I think I found a very good compromise by pushing the channel Low, which I add a Tech21 XXL (bass edition). I approach the channel really High, while keeping the possibility of passing in the clear.

    SOUNDS

    His marshall, nothing. Bold, powerful (all-tube necessarly), somewhat imprecise (rock n roll, Vade retro mesa). This is perfect for rock n roll. The metal does not scare him either (with some additional effects).
    I added to it a Gibson Les Paul Studio (1993), a Jackson Dinky DX (Dimarzio), and just bought Hohner L75 (excellent). I use a Tech21 XXL overdrive (and possibility to have a clear sound), an Ibanez WD7 wah, a MXR Zakk Wylde (booster for solos).

    Ouali, with a GENERALLY, they say "uh lolo, you could not turn down the sound STP"

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it on Repeat ', a concert, studio for almost 20 years. The amp is from 1984. It's tough. An investment lifetime. CAN NOT SELL A JCM 800 IS PROHIBITED BY THE LAWS OF ROCK N ROLL Marshallese.

    Not only I would do this choice, but someone wants to dbarrasser his JCM800, I'm interested ....
