A lot of people say Marshall amps have declined recently. I haven't heard many old Marshall's (other than recordings and extremely loud concerts), but I have heard the TSL 100, and it sounds as good or better as any other amp in this price range, but has many more features. I play mine with a Gibson Les Paul Standard, and the high gain channel just screams. I have friends who don't like Marshall's that love my amp's tone. I use the crunch channel as my clean channel; I just kill the gain and crank the volume for a slight crunch on my clean channel. Each channel can go from pretty clean to pretty crunchy (except the clean channel). This is a great sounding amp, but one word of caution; take great care of the footswitch as it is very easy to ruin the connection. So plan on replacing the footswitch every couple of years.
I was on a quest to acquire the ultimate "MARSHALL TONE". I purchased inexpensive amps, combos and amp modeling processors that promised to sound "just like a Marshall"! After several years of owning gear that only trashed my tone I was left disappointed. I finally invested in a Marshall Tube Head and my dreams were fulfilled. I am now a true believer and convinced that a tube head cannot be reproduced by cheap digital imitations. Now my guitar solo's sing with sustain and wail with true tube tone! Buy a Marshall tube head and a Marshall 4 x 12 half stack and you'll never have to look any further for great tone.
words can't do it justice. it can sing like an angel or scream like a demon. the three channels are very useful and easy to manage. unfortunately, i let my brother use it for a gig and he managed to break the footswitch jack in the back. that aside, i can plug in my single coil fender strat for a dirty, twangy, punk sound(think alkaline trio's good mourning) or plug in my gibson sg, and get overwhelming, crushing distortion (HIM's razorblade romance) without touching a knob. seriously dude, just go to gc and plug in. you'll have wet dreams about this amp.
WOW! The Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 100 blew me away. I had to buy it after playing it at the music shop. Three channels, two effects loops, and XLR output. Tons of gain, even on the crunch channel. Ive got a 1960A cab and it shakes the house. Any sound you want, you can get from this amp. All that stuff youve heard about the foot switch, just take care of it and it will work fine.
Well, I used this amp for a show I did a week or so ago. To start off, this amp does have a lot of tone control. And if you play Rock/Emo/Or something that requires warm, slightly gainy tone with lots of midrange, then this amp is perfect. Also, the clean tone is VERY good. No complaints at all there. All I think this amp needs is more gain. That's it. Otherwise, it is an amzing amplifier. Paired with an Orange cab or higher-end Marshall cab, it does sound great.
I play a Gibson SG, and I play mostly hardcore/metal. At first, I was tempted to buy a Mesa Boogie, which seemed to be a standby for that genre. But a piece of me said "go Marshall". After all, a Gibson and a Marshall are a match made in heaven. So I went for the JCM 2000 and I couldn't be happier. The tone is completely maleable, and I can max it out for great heavy tones or curb the crazy for softer, sweeter notes. I have played it for 2 years now, and it keeps impressing me. The three channels each present something new, and I plan on playing this for a while.
I've had this amp for about 3 years now and its never failed me. Every kind of sound you can think of can be produced with this amp. All of my guitars sound fantastic though this amp. (SG's Strats, RGs) The best feature of the amp has got to be the XLR out on the back. You can use this to directly record from the amp without blowning out your ears. Thats the feature that sold me and it worked out great for my apartment. The only issue I have with this amp is that it has a popping sound when switching between channels. This is a problem that surfaced recently and may be due to worn out tubes. I noticed that the price of this amp went up recently. Not sure why, Its worth about $1200 bucks but not more then that.
