    Yes I know this. There are still newer Marshalls I'd rather have than it.

    Even a master volume crank on the 800 doesn't saturate it as much as I would like.

    When was that? From what he has said, his boost pedal is mostly always on.

        Id have to go back and put the SLO side by side with the B52s but i would definitely put the B52 tube heads above the mode4.

              here, here brother. for those people that made their own "metal" list if you didn't add this amp you should kill yourselves. this is a death metal amp that definitly eats a 8100, triple rectifier, 5150, and most other amps for breakfast. only amps better would be most engls and possibly bogners. but for the price its unbeatable.


              I had a chance to get one of those cheap at a local musicgoround but thought it sounded a lot less than impressive. I've had a 5150 and would far more prefer that over it, as I also would even my cheap Behringer V-Ampire 120 head or the Ultra Plus head I run that into, and I'd also put the Carvin X-100B head w/ a tubescreamer boost well over the Ampeg, as well. I KNOW that I'm alone regarding my thoughts on the sound of that Ampeg, but I was so unimpressed by it that it's hard to ignore how much rep that amp has as compared to what my ears heard while trying one out.

                Oh and let the flamming begin.



                I don't know I'd disagree with you, but the JCM's have had so much history and are the sound of most of '80s metal -- just a very good and very widely used amp over decades now.

                    I'm not usually this outspoken but you're a dumbass. You're obviously biased towards Mesa. The XTC may be a nice amp, but I have never heard a metal tone from one. The closest tone is probably Steve Vai's "Bad Horsie" and I wouldn't consider that anywhere near a metal tone. Granted you might not like the 5150 but you can't deny the fact that a large number of metal bands use them.


                    the xtc can do metal, trust me. picture the offspring of a marshall and a mesa boogie and you have the xtc. does metal just fine in my opinion

                      • Since finding this forum.. I have lost alot of respect for guitar mags.

                        They're all about the $$$, the reviews are ads in disguise, and most of the mags are ads anyway! they only get away with it because guitarists are usually gear heads and don't seem to mind reading about products too much.

                        I still buy the odd guitar magazie but now prefer to read Metal mags like Revolver, Kerrang etc. at least they feature more on actual bands and not the same 3 or 4 acts. (guitar world love - Metallica, Pantera, Megadeath, etc. They obviously sell mags and I love these bands (except Megadeath) but come on!!!!!!!!
