Re: Mesa Mark IV - Looking at other Amps
I use to have a JCM2000 DSL head and 1960 cab. I'm not sure how well it would compare with the 800, but im looking at overall marshall tone. I played it with a Gibson les paul classic. Overall, it wasn't my favorite amp but it was a solid amp. In terms of tone, it was pretty amazing and i'm sure most if not all marshall tube amps would replicate the same tone. The EL34 tubes provided plenty of gain to get by, but the cleans sounded pretty damn good. I ran into a few problems with it sounding muddy, but the was probably the guitar contributing to most of it, especially the 496 neck pickup. A little tweaking on the gain and bottom end fixed that right away though. I'm actually trying to make the conversion from marshall to either a mark IV or possibly a peavey JSX.
