Re: Marshall Amps? Over rated and over priced?
Well lemmie tell ya this: I get to play dozens and dozens of amps per year through work (guitar mags) but when it came time to buy a new amp, I settled on a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50 above amps by Mesa Boogie, Carvin, Fender, Randall, Line 6, Laney, Hughes & Kettner, Peavey, Engl, etc etc etc. I would definitely recommend the JCM2000 series. It's what Dave Murray uses in Maiden. You'll also get Vai-ish tones out of it, particularly Eat 'Em And Smile/Passion & Warfare type sounds.
