Marshalls suck with gain!
WTF??? Marshall suck? no way... if you want those ultra tight definition sounds or mega distortion, go buy a mesa, but donīt try to get a NICE SWEET WARM tone (a la Satriani) with those amps... you canīt, the POD canīt get it either. If you donīt like itīs distortion, okay... but donīt talk BS about a nice amp. I have a JCM2000 DSL 100w btw, and I think Mesaīs are OK but theyīre not for me, period. I think theyīre to dry sounding... donīt have that nice sustain and distortion for solos. Btw, I like Satrianiīs and Vaiīs tone a lot more than Petrucciīs in solos. For Rhythms, Petrucci is heavier (besides de 7th string), but I donīt like his lead tone. Too "machine" for me.
Bottom Line: Donīt open your mouth and talk BS only if you donīt like an amp. Itīs always the best amp for someone else.
