    Hi I have about $1000 to spend on a amp. i was looking at ebay for good deals on vintage amps that are hard to find. I was going to get a mesa boogie triple but they are too expensive. Any way I saw many JCM 800 marshalls some modified, some lee jackson amps, and some carvin legacys. If had too pick one which would you buy? I like the guns n roses, vai and zakk wylde tone.

    It's too bad you live as far away as you do. I could sell you one of my mid 70's modded marshall heads for about 700. You'd love it.

    I've used it only as a backup head in case my head blows, but I've never really had any problem with my other head, except once when a tube broke when the head tipped, and that was my fault.
    The 78 head's just stayed home. My tech is a marshall specialist, and is the one who mods them for me, so if I really need another one done down the road he can do it for me. I figured I'd let this one go if someone's really interested, and since he only does 3 or 4 a year at the most, there's very, very few of these heads around. They have to be completely stock or he won't touch them. As a rule he charges 525. for the mod alone. Although it doesn't really look very different from the outside, inside there's a lot done to it for gain, footswitch channel switching, with separate controls for the clean and high gain channel(the clean channel controls are put on the back out of sight), fully adjustable loop control, and a push/pull pot on the master volume which cuts the power in half, but has a small circuit he designed installed, to keep it real fat and heavy sounding even at very low volumes. No type of powerbrake or any crap like that ever needed.

    naww, no more tears is ozzy w/ zakk wylde. the sound is heavier with chourus and more distortion. i think there s more going on with that sound than a modified marshall head. effects ,jape, ect. plus a les paul w/ active emg pick ups.

    Oh yea, I know the sound you mean now. Yea the head can do anything like that, and more. You wouldn't believe how much gain the head has by itself, when you dial it up. There's 2 seperate pots for increasing gain. You can go from a standard overdriven marshall sound to breathing fire, but without all the hiss of a 5150, and a warmer marshall tone. You'd have to be crazy to add a distortion pedal to this amp. It'd be like putting a little propeller on a Stealth Fighter. As far as chorus goes, when I need chorus I put it in the loop. It's variable so you can increase or decrease the power through the loop, depending on what kind of chorus you use.
    I won't bother explaining it anymore. I should have offered it to Homeunit first, but I assumed he had his mind made up on the triple rectifier.
