GUys I have been lookin for an amp and i found an used Marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100 Head for 550 euro is it a good price ??


I was goin for a new peavy valve king but this one looks a lot better even tho it´s an used one ..

I will either use it w/ and used marshal 1960 A 4x12 (if i find one at a good price ) or a new framus 4x12 or 2x 12 cab..

It comes down to the age of the amp and the tube, you might buy an amp with worn out tubes and replacing them will not be cheap!

Awsome .. I´m still looking into videos and reviews it sounds really nice .. but i think the jcm 800 sounds smoother to me ..

btw: i got another noob question what does it mean when people say they will mod an amp ?? or that an amp is modded?

To mod an amp is to rebuild it in some way.
A couple of examples could be:
* To add an effects loop
* Exchange some inner electric parts to alter the amp's character
* Add an extra channel
* Add a channel volume

I have to say that I don't know what Trivium did in the studio, but today almost every production uses more than just one amp, normally you get a good guitar sound by mixing several different amps. So only because Trivium use that amp on stage doesn't mean that they used it (and only that one) for the album. The amp itself is not bad in my opinion, but I would definitely add a good distortion pedal to get a good high gain sound.

Yeah sure Marcus it's all studio magic but I pointed Trivium out because one guitarist used the JCM2000 DSL on stage until the JVM was released. The basic question was: can it do metal?

And yes it can, I saw the band play metal live with this amp^^

Have you tried the amp out? It should be a nice one, but really depends in which condition is it...And yes it should do metal, just try it out and see if you like how it sounds. Remember to bring your own guitar to the testing...

I've heard JCM2000 50W and 100W heads are very decent workhorses, you should definitely try it tho before you buy.

Guys I heard that the TSL has a mode that uses only 25w of the 100w of the head ... does the DSL have such a thing ???
