Fixed that for you
For me its a silver jubilee. Sounds good at low volumes and great at higher volumes and is pretty darn versatile.
Thanks for the info and link, Mike.
The biggest deal IMO is the switch to 470k mix resistors. This shifts the focus and break up to a more midrange keraang and gives the Marshall it's signature bark that the jtm45 doesn't have.
I think these threads are always interesting, because there really isn't a best answer. There are so many variables. How do you define Marshall? What style or decade do you identify with? I think overall, if there was one Marshall that could be placed above them all it would be the late 60s Plexi Super Lead. It's got the "Marshall" sound and you can get a variety of classic Marshall tones out of it. You've got great cleans, crunch, and gain without any help. Toss some pedals into the mix and well, you know what happens. I think in terms of classic tone and versatility alone it's the Holy Grail of Marshall amps. I own a Metropoulos myself with the virtual variac, bright cap switch, and half power switch and I can't imagine anything better for me personally.
Personally, my YJM100 is my Holy Grail Marshall.
Everything I've ever wanted. A 100 watt Superlead switcheable to 50 watts with electronic power attenuation, footswitcheable boost, noisegate, digital reverb and auto tube biasing. What's not to love?
Marshall knocked it outta the park with these.
Silver Jubilee (have one)
JTM 45/100 (really really want one)
A pair of 70s JMP 100 watters. One for rhythm, one for lead, and an A/B box.
