for practice when i need to be quiet or i want to mess with cool effects i use a line 6 spider II 30 watt. For my clean/ light distorted stuff i use a Peavey valve king half stack 100watt and for really metal stuff i use my baby my Krank Revolution 100watt halfstack. as far as tone is concerned all tube is the way to go.

You know,with combo you have few very short cables and
everything is optimized,connection wise.
With racks and stuff you have a lot more cables,
sound needs to go take a long walk before
it comes out of the speaker.
Less cables=better response,dynamics etc. smile.gif

I don't have any real amps. Only play with the POD.

I am probably buying a Marshall in the future.

But my ideal amp is a 4 channel amp:
channel 1 - Fender on cleans
channel 2 - Marshall on crunch
channel 3 - Marshall on OD1
channel 4 - Mesa distortion

Which model JCM 800? I used to play through a JCM 800 model 2205. I should have never gotten rid of it. But i needed college money at the time. It's now been replaced with a JCM 2000 DSL which I love just as much!!

Then I shall give it a deep try. smile.gif

How does it compare to a JVM? Cause I tried this one before. I didn't like the OD2 much (but maybe it was more of my bad settings). Cleans were fine, but still not like a fender dual reverb.

Haven't had the chance to mess with a JVM. However, I can speak volumes about the JCM 2000 DSL. The most organic I've ever owned. That's coming from a old JCM 800 user and lover. The clean channel is the best Marshall has done to date. To get that punchy Fender tone you use the gain and volume opposite how you normally would. With the channel in Classic Gain/Clean Channel you crank the volume and use the gain knob to control your volume. This causes you to get that natural tube compression that Fenders are famous for. In terms of OD and Crunch is pure Plexi and JCM 800. Run the baby through a couple of Marshall 1960 cabs and turn the volume up and it's pure Marshall roar in all it's glory. It's what every modeling amp is trying to produce but the compression of real power amp tubes just can't be duplicated.

Plus you can get a mint used JCM 2000 for 1/2 the price of a used JVM. Also the amp has bias test points so biasing and changing tubes is a piece of cake.

I use a Peavey 6505+ 100 watt head with the matching 4x12 slant cabinet. Through the effects loop I run a TC Electronics G-Major processor controlled by a Behringer MIDI pedal board. I run my Les Paul Standard (w/Suhr Doug Aldrich pickups) through a Beyer wireless to a Crybaby wah into the front of the amp.

It's basically the same thing except without additional features and a couple of sounds. Bad thing with these amps is they all sound different, so you may have heard some model with stock tubes, and it sounds very poor. With hi quality tubes, these amps really turn into great sound machines.
Cleans of Fender and Marshall are pretty different, so it will definitely not be as a Fender Dual Reverb - ever. But cleans are very nice and can be bright with a right set of tubes, so they sound great. I actually like JCM2000 cleans more than Fender, don't like that sparkling highs in Fenders.
