    I honestly dont know why you would go with anything other than a "Marshall" if thats the tone you want. If you want a Vox top boost, get a vox, if you want fender clean.... these amps might sound better to you, but those seem like they were built just to rip Marshall off. just sayin.

    I still maintain, if you want a Fender get a Fender, if you want a Marshall get a Marshall. I've had the boutiques and the real ones, they're all very nice if they're runnin' right. Every Marshall but one that I've bought needed minor repair or maintenance, but once they're dialed in they are very nice indeed!!

    You've probably not found the Marshall that suits you. The newer ones are fair but great deals can be found on the 70's Marshall's and they sound really sweet.

    Try the real thing before going for boutique, unless that's what you really want.

    I have to agree with most comments here. There is something to say about the real thing. Even though boutique makers can improve on the originals' shortcomings, and make an awesome product in the end, sometimes "more" is too much for what you are looking for. With a Marshall, sure there are good ones and bad ones out there, some clean and some molested, some good years some not, but it's still the amp with more recordings that we all have listened too for years and love. It has taken me over 20 years of stubbornness to figure this out. If you are looking for a Marshall - get a Marshall.

    You can pay more, or you can pay less, but you won't have a Marshall unless it's a Marshall.

    Even in the history of Marshall, there is a great deal of variation in the sound of the amps, so which Marshall are they even referring to. I am not sure about any of the newer companies mentioned, but I have heard older Traynor amps modified to sound a great deal like the earlier Plexi Marshalls. I use a 1962 Brown Deluxe through a 2x12 w/ Celestion G12M-25 that sounds convincingly like my JCM-800 combo Marshall. Older Laney amps should be mentioned as well though none really sounds like a Marshall.

    Get a real Marshall. Or a Soultone or Germino or Metro or Reinhardt clones, second best.

    Exacty!

    Shampoch even mentioned this above, yet contradicts himself by giving the "if you want a, get a" BS.

    The amps, guitars, etc... Don't know what's written on the faceplate. I'd love to hear someone give an intelligent reasoning as to why you should go with Marshall if you like those tones.

    I've yet to hear any logic in that regard and yet again we have another thread here where the majority of the lemmings immediately just say "get a Marshall"

    So myopic.
