4100

Online

Another player's favourite, the JCM900 4100 all-valve 100 watt Marshall head is available once again. Known for its great tone and reliability, the JCM900 range has won many fans with its incredible versatility. Channel A has been voiced for a sparkling clean on lower gain settings, building up to a raunchy crunch when driven hard. Channel B takes off from where channel A finishes with acute use of the Gain and EQ controls, you will achieve a perfect sound for any lead tone from silky smooth to searing saturation. As well as having separate gain controls, each channel has its own master section containing controls for Master Volume and Master Reverb.

A series Effects Loop with level controls lets you connect and match either floor pedals or rack effects. Whatever style of rock you play, the 4100 will give you tonal flexibility without compromise.

I've owned both the 50 watt combo and the 100 watt head and both have been indestructible. I jammed/gigged regularly with one for 10 years with no issues. The 900 gets some flack from the Marshall purists because of the solid state gain that it has, but judge it by the sound not the reputation some vintage gear snobs have given it. The 5881 (rather than el34) tubes give it a different, more aggressive and punchy tone than most Marshalls but if you are looking for an amp with sharper, almost Fender like cleans as well as that Marshall crunch and beyond, it's a great amp, and really underrated. Great for any heavy rock, punk, and classic metal sounds.

I just bought this amp used from L&M for $599 and it is in killer shape. So far in the little time I've owned it it sounds pretty killer. So amount of gain and good tonal control. Probably sound amazing with an overdrive pedal and some delay in front.

I own one from the 90's. This is the amp for all things rock and metal through the 90's and even a lot of the modern stuff. Not as much gain on tap as a Mesa, but do you really want your riffs to sound like mush? With the gain on 1/2, and a boost of your choice out front, power chord chunk sounds like a cannon going off! Punchy and mean and perfect for cutting through the mix in a band. Also, a little trick: Put a patch cable between the send/return of the fx loop, and dial the fx level until you hear it get louder. At this point the amp goes into destroy mode. Gets even better with an EQ and/or a boost in the loop. WARNING: Only do this if you want to make your band members jealous. One thing to note, is that there is a lot of hate out there for this amp because the EQ is a little odd to use. Dial it in with your ears, not your eyes.
