Is a Plexi good for anything besides Hard Rock or Metal?

    My buddy was hugelpressed with how versatile my '72 Super Lead is. As he said,

    "hey - you can even play country with this amp". He was Super impressed at the range of the amp. I use an Ultimate Attenuator to control volume and run the amp way up.

    She cooks.

    I've got a plexi JTM50 that goes from in-your-face raunch to the prettiest, woodiest cleans I've ever heard in my life. Metal is probably the only type of music I WOULDN'T use it for...

    I run a '72 bone clean with pedals. Awesome rock tones.
    Country. surf, jazz, blues or f*cking opera - anything you want in spades. Gorgeous, full shimery sound.
    Marshalls in general are misunderstood. I've brought a 100 watt half stack to wedding gigs and eyebrows always go up. "Oh no - its goona be all loud and distorted - after all... it's a Marshall"
    NONSENSE.
    It's just a beautifully designed and built tube audio amplifier with a ton of possibilites.

    Yup Grissom delivered beautiful roots rock textures with a PRS and a plexi. Amazing tone from a great player.

    EJ's dirty rhythm tone is a plexi on 7. AC/DC, Allman bros and humble pie are some other examples of tasty, mid gain, classic rock plexi goodness

    Plexi + fuzz and/or treble booster = Hendrix, Beck, Iommi and Blackmore. The gainiest example of a NMV plexi known to man is found on the first 2 VH albums.

    Its the perfect (classic, roots, punk, hard) rock amp. It can deliver surprisingly sweet cleans, amazing mid gain tones, Punk rock raunch and even heavier rock tones with a little help from boosters.
