    Can anyone point out an example of good JTM45 tone on an album? Maybe a certain artist's general tone who used JTM45s?

    I think a lot of Angus Young's work on the early AC/DC albums was JTM45.

    Clapton and Peter Green in Mayall's Bluesbreakers too...

    All the really stellar examples right there. Though there are many more, my fave is 'All your love (I miss loving)' from the Beano album.

    I don't ever follow pro guitarists' setups so I'm no expert on this, but for any JTM45 to sound like Still got the blues, you need a pedal. Someone else who's more of an expert can verify that!!! I had the stock JTM45 RI for quite some time since the early 90's and then got it modded to the old vintage values, and POST-MOD that amp is as nice as anything I have .. It's beautiful sounding... Has some of the best cleans ever imo, and great glassy crunch and great on-the-verge-of -blowup rich od when dimed. It's not as fluid as "Still got the blues" though but sounds like that with many of the od's I can throw in front of it... Stock , the JTM45 RI was very nice , but sounded more bassmanish and was a pedal base... Modded they sound great. I've never tried any of the other clones, NOR have I tried a 60's version so that's the extent of my experience.. I've had mine abuot 12-13 years now and will never sell it.

    does a plexi 50 have much more gain than the JTM45? I'd thought that if you bridged the chanels that the JTM45 had a good amount of gain.

    Here's a fine set of examples.

    Click on

    Vintage! Marshalls legendärer JTM45 [Sound-Videos]

    and listen to these. Probably one of the sweetest Marshall tones I've ever heard.

    Killer playing, too!

    That old Marshall Bluebreaker pedal, the black one, is a pretty good driver for a JTM-45.

    IIRC, Gary used an old Marshall Guv'nor pedal on that track.

    That's what I thought about the Guv'nor.. I have 1 of the old ones and yes , that with a JTM45 sounds like Still Got the Blues ezily. Also , LOADS of pedals work great with my JTM45 .. After it was modded with the lower value filter caps,etc I had to use DIFFERENT pedals with it though, as the amp became WAY richer sounding and responded very differently to pedals.. I have an MI Audio Prototype that's great with it , as is a Catalinbread Teaser Stallion as are most boost-type pedals and TS type pedals. Anyway, I love that amp and it's been totally dependable for a long time

    I heard Gary Moore used a Soldano on "Still Got the Blues". I'm not positive it's true... but I was told by a very reliable source that was the case. I've owned a pile of JTM 45's and that track doesn't really sound like a JTM 45 to me... Guv'nor or not. There is a lot of gain on that track. Great tone! Even the Beano tone had a rangemaster pushin' the front end.

    YMMV

    What about Fresh Cream? That Sleepy Time Time Les Paul tone makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! As for the rangemaster on Beano, although it seems to be widely excepted I'm still waiting for hard evidence. I realize there is some extra hair, but it could be due to a ribbon mic overdriving the input on the console.

    Marshall's website has a write up about the rig he used for that album. He only used SLO's for a tour around that period but later went back to his Marshalls.

    That's what I thought too.. It's EXTREMELY easy to get that tone with my JTM45 and the old "The Guv'nor" pedal.. It's not one of my favorite pedals (I have lots of really great stuff) but it sounds perfectly like that tune.. If that old "The Guv'nor" cleaned up (it doesn't worth a crud) and had a better bypass tone , it'd be a GREAT pedal for someone to build these days!!!!

    No, it absolutely did not, and you cannot believe it did if you ever actually heard a Rangemaster/JTM45 combination.

    Accepted by whom?
    It was marketing BS made up by a guy who made Rangemaster clones years ago, and all the sheep said "meh".

    I'm close to giving up on this mission though.

    I wrote the Gary Moore webmaster about the SGTB album. His reply was that it was an old JTM 45 with the Guv'nor pedal for most of the tracks, including SGTB, Pretty Woman, etc.
