    this tread is about Marshall grind.

    1) which bands and or songs use it to the best advantage?

    2) which settings on a marshall give the best grind?

    3) which amp does the best job at low volume?

    4) which model has the grind tone you like best?

    take your pick on where you want to take the thread!

    AC/DC. . .Album. . .Back in Black. Use less gain than you think you need. Strike only 3 or 4 strings. . .Power chords. Let 'er rip!

    Outlaws- Train, Train, take me on out of this town! Sounds like either a metalface or a cranked plexi to me:cool:

    Guns & Roses stuff- prolly jcm 800's boosted a tad.

    AC/DC is the epitome of cranked marshall slp tone. Especially the rythm parts done with malcolm young's gretsch.

    Jimmi Hnedrix- 100 watt superlead:dude

    this tread is about Marshall grind.

    1) which bands and or songs use it to the best advantage?
    Metallica, ACDC, The Rev

    2) which settings on a marshall give the best grind?
    Lowish bass, Mids to taste, treble low, volume high....oh and a bunch of scumbags. The speakers make a difference.

    3) which amp does the best job at low volume?
    For me it is the 18 watt TMB.

    4) which model has the grind tone you like best?
    There are LOTS of good ones but for me it's Trinity.

    Oh that young English kid too, what was his name...

    Oh yeah Clapton, and that tall lanky black R&B player, used to like using strats... I think his name was James? I think he was in the airforce?:D

    Kiss, BOC, Bon Scott era AC/DC, Zeplin, Cream, Blue Cheer, UFO, MC5, Rush's first album, etc..., etc...

    2) which settings on a marshall give the best grind?

    Volume on about 8, humbuckers are a must, bass about 3, mids cranked treble to taste. Greenbacks are essential.

    3) which amp does the best job at low volume?

    20w Bass head

    4) which model has the grind tone you like best?

    Any old 4 holer will do it just fine...from a 20w head to a 200w Major...(you did say Marshall grind)
