I guess you don't know much about Marshall, do you? I like the JCM 800. That's about the only head they made worth a damn. JCM 900 and later... Marshall uses INFERIOR componets, CHEAP PC BOARDS, DIODE DISTORTION, and CHARGES nearly as much as MESA. WTF do you not understand about that??? Guess you don't ever look inside the pretty little boxes to see what they're made of, eh? Tear apart a Bogner, Soldano, VHT, Mesa, and compare it to whatever crap SS amp or Marshall you might want. Come back and tell me Marshall doesn't charge top dollar for SWEAT SHOP JUNK! Any reputable company would charge HALF of what Marshall sells their equipment for, because it's sub standard.
