Re: whats the best marshall head

i would go for the 50watt head the JCM800 lead, with a 2x12 cab loaded with 1xgreenback celestion and 1xvintage 30 celestion, or vamp it up with the 100watt lead into a 4x12 with 2xgreenbacks and 2x vintage 30's, that combination is vintage valve tone heaven.

Re: whats the best marshall head

thanks lee.is that 2x12 cabinet chassis made by marshall? also one of your last words on the 100 watt amp was "valve" does that refer to solid state amplification?

Re: whats the best marshall head

marshal make a 2x12 (jcm900 1936) with 2xgreens or 2xvintage 30's, you have to buy the odd speaker and install it yourself, the valve thing was merly my impression of that setup, as you know both those amps are all valve, and i think with that setup you get a great classic rock sound.

Re: whats the best marshall head

thanks guys im still wondering if this 130 watt cyber twin head will blow the 4 vintage 30's here(doesnt sound like 130 watts)// wow 25 watt greenbacks w/ vintage 30's on a 100 watt amp talk about pushing air...jimi must have toasted many a speaker

Re: whats the best marshall head

with the 100 watt head i would go for the 4x12 with 2 greens and 2 v30's, this will handle a 100watt head, the vintage 30's are rated at 60watts each and the greens at 25 each, the total power handling will be restricted to 100watts.

Cool

Cool

Re: whats the best marshall head

I think the Marshall JCM800 2210 100 watt dual channel with reverb is one of the best. I also think the Marshall SLP rates up there too.
