It's like having three separate amps in one box!
Get the Marshall JCM2000 Triple Super Lead 100 Head if you want an amp with great clean sound and a lot of gain. Having three independent channels (Clean, Crunch, and Lead) puts amazing control, flexibility, and tone variations at your fingertips. From sparkling clean to full-blown Marshall roar, this all-valve 100W head delivers it all. Each channel features its own volume, gain, and EQ. Master controls include tone shift for beefing up tone at low volumes, Accutronics spring reverb, effects loop mix control, speaker emulation DI circuit for silent recording, and virtual power reduction that gives you a glorious, saturated power amp feel without cranking it up to 10. Comes loaded with four ECC83 preamp valves and four EL34 power amp valves. Also features two effects loops, loudspeaker outputs, a 5-way LED footcontroller, and more.
You could wait forever, but a tube head of this quality won't get any cheaper. Make the investment today. Your music deserves it.

Well it?s a Marshall, so I don't have to go on and on about how solid and well made this piece of equipment is. When I ordered this Marshall I knew I was getting it new and I didn't have to worry about going to Sam Ash or Guitar Center and having some pony tailed sales nerd try to haggle me and then stick me with a demoed machine passed off for new. VERY nice right out of the FACTORY box. No blemishes whatsoever.If you've never played on this type of amp before the front knobs can be a little intimidating to look upon at first. Even if you've played Marshall, now we're talking THREE channels, and each with their own switches and controls. But seriously, it's not all that bad. Once you dive in and start playing around with it you get yourself acquainted fairly fast. Also as a tip: While waiting for my TSL to be delivered I downloaded the free user's manual (it can be found here and on the Marshall main site.) - I read up on the TSL while it was on it's way, and by the time I got my hands on it I already had a pretty good idea of what i was doing. The design itself is user-friendly, and like I said, you'll be switching and jamming in no time.Three channels, man. Independent control for all three channels along with a mid boost switch to punch up your cleans, deep tone switches for crunch/lead and clean to round out your low end, and also what I probably love the most - TONE SHIFT!! Tone shift is available on your crunch and lead channels and I'm tellin you it is quite an excellent feature. It changes up the Marshall eq into a more 'mid-scooped' sounding distortion. This is ideal for all you metal heads. Other great features on this amp are the silent output mode ( ideal for muting your cab so you can direct line out to your mixer or recorder) and also the VPR mode. VPR mode keeps the tubes burning and the tone whole while lowering the head's output to approximately 20 watts. This is great for working on riffs at lower volumes but still having that whole Marshall tone to your sound. All in all, they covered their bases well and loaded this baby up with the features.

I bought this amp and tried for a week, then one of my friends told me about the Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier...All I can say is that the Marshall just does not deliver - I can get MArshall sound on the Mesa on Vintage on channel 2 with gain a 6 with tweaking of tone controls - Mesa is MUCH better is you want gain - and for the price, the Marshall's effects loop is terrible as stated before as well . Save yourself alot of time and at lest check out the Mesa Boogie dual or triple rectifier head before buying this one - I wish I had - exchanged - night and day difference - also - Mesa has 50% more watts.

This amp has very usable features. Clean channel is very warm and organic sounding and the corresponding gain is very reactive for tone sculpting. Crunch is nice for creating a vintage rhthym. If you push it you can create a cool asending gain structure for dynamic lead. The lead channel has a very full bodied crunch. Great for metal and very solid for lead. The parralel effects loop allows transparent sound processing to let the organic tube tone sing through. Easy to cut through in a band. The head is built very strong and can handle the road. Never gig without a back up but still havent needed one. Using this with quality gear can fit whatever style you desire. Its a professiional workhorse amp.
Had been playing a Fender Deville but was not getting the sound I needed. Friend had a JCM 2000 sitting around and I tried at our next practice session and left with it. Now the Deville is sitting in the closet as a back up.
I bought this head used for a great price. It was an uber steal! This amp is pro quality. The three chanels are sooo versitile. I run it through an Orange 2x12 Cab, and its screams. This is probably the best head for the money! But buy now because theyre no longer in production!
I have been playing the Mashall TSL 2000 for six years With a Fender Malmsteen Statacaster. More that I could wish for. Own Fender amps Peavey amps but the Marshall rules. A friend of mine played a 50 watt marshall but changed to the TSL after playing one. Have used Svetlana tubes and Ruby tubes successfully. I think the Ruby tubes are a little more creamy with the gain cranked up. Just purchased onother set of Svetlanas to see what I can do with them this time. To those who need to now, a great guitar and a great amp will make great tone. What can be done with it is up to you. Keep rocking.
This amp is awesome great crunch tones via JCM800 right out of the box I use the 1960A Cab but sounds awesome on the vintage cab as well but cranked up with my Gibson Les Paul Standard I Get Sweet Sustaining Leads With My Les Paul Studio Also the clean channel has worked wonders on my recordings I Think it is better than the JVM 410 this head has real accutronics 6 spring reverb tank to get a more natural sounding reverb than the digital plate reverb on the JVM with the same amount of gain as the JVM w/out 20 modes and channels get this head!!!
This was the first Marshall head I ever bought about 3 years ago and I love it! I will admit when I first went out shopping for a stack I was really hoping for a Mode Four (how dumb I know...) When I heard this thing next to a Mode Four it blew me away!It can pretty much play any type of music you want the clean channel is great and the distortion channels are amazing! A great Marshall punch of power. I play it through a 1960A and 1960B and love it!It's good especially if you want to compact the Marshall collection into one amp. If you record and don't want to move 5 amps into the studio.I usually use this live and I'm able to only bring one amp with me instead of bringing three.Bottom line...GET ONE!!!
I decided it was time for an upgrade to my MG100HDFX full stack. My band is getting serious about playing now so it was due time for an upgrade.I picked up this head with a 1960A cab. Plugged it in and let it warm up. This was my first tube amp I owned but I have played out of tubes many times. Once it was warmed up. I did some riffs in the clean channel and messed around with the tones a little. Clean as can be. Ok next the lead and crunch channels, I was blown away by the distortion just from the amp. Even at full gain it was clear as day and the sustain was amazing. Finally I decided to test it out and see what it could do. I cranked up the volume, and it really scared the crap out of me. So loud yet so clear, The bass is amazing on this baby, and if you're like me, and love to play music styles ranging from Korn to Lamb of God then you'll love the bass you get, even at high volumes there was barely any feed back. The footswitch is a little confusing to set up, mind you I really haven't gotten into the directions. But it appears you have to have certain mode buttons activated on the head for the footswitch buttons to work. All in all though great amp and I definitely haven't put my guitar down since getting it.
I've been using my TSL 100 for about a year. I've got a 1960A and 1960AV cabinet. I now use solely the Vintage cab (1960AV). Couple quick notes, the FX loop is great, especially with the loop on/off button on the footswitch. Makes the pedal tap dancing easier to manage. Love the 3 channels, channel 3 is HOT. Got a 4.5 because I think this would be even better if it had a 50/100 watt output switch. One complaint is that it has to be pushed HARD to get a good sound, but don't all tube amps? Pedal is junk. Hasn't worked right from the getgo. Everything else is good though. 4.5 Overall.
Got this amp on saturday.Got it home hook it up to my 4-12 cabinet.And man does this amp rock.it's the best amp I have ever had.The clean is just so cool to me.I have a peavy 2-12 combo so long that I never knew what I was missing.Oh don't get me wrong I still love my old peavy.But just not as much as this Marshall JCM2000 amp I have now.It's so much better than anything I have use to date.No way will I ever sell this amp.It's just to good.Wish I had got this amp sooner. I love this amp it rock's.
i was glancing through some of the reviews about this amplifier and some have not touched upon every aspect of the amp. It is 100% true that you need a good guitar and a good cabinet; this amp will reproduce only as good as the cabinet and the guitar because they could be weak links in your signal path. My only issue with this amp that bothers me is the effects loop. Although it is extremely versitle, it colors the sound greatly as you add more of it to the dry mix of the guitar with the mix nob. It cannot be fixed back to crystal clear with an EQ as some may have mentioned, the amp compresses the sound rather than changing frequencies and i know its not my boss delay because i've used it in various other fx loops with no coloration at all.the footswitch is o.k. i found out that i never use it but when i do it works fine i have gigged with this amp many times and it has never failed me. there is a slight delay between switching channels but you can get around it without a big deal.i use an american strat and a 1960av cabinet..... this cabinet has vintage 30s inside NOT the normal 75 watt celestions or celestion greenbacks, i know this for a fact. the vintage 30s have a mean growl and clean up very nice. this amp paired with greenbacks or 1960av cab are awsome for any style of music. The clean channel is actually very clean indeed and sparkles unlike most marshalls. overall this is an extrememly good amp my only complaint is the fx loops but it has great versitility. HOWEVER, i find myself to only use the crunch channel so i prolly would have been better suited if i purchased the dsl50 or the jcm800 with less bells and whistles. this is a very good amp. the stock tubes are o.k. i have not yet needed to replace them (6 months so far) but i have read it makes it more of a beast with new tubes.
