Buy the Mode Four MF350 head with the optimized MF400 angled cab and save a bunch.
Though many amps claim to produce classic and modern tones, most fall short. The brutal yet toneful 350W hybrid output is just the beginning of the story. With its 2-amps-in-1 design that employs dual preamps, each with an ECC83 valve, you get totally independent amp configurations. It also completely reconfigures its power amp section depending on which amp type is selected. Both of the amp types have 2 footswitchable modes with Amp 1 offering Clean and Crunch modes while Amp 2 delivers 2 distinct overdrives. Amp 1 is effectively the classic side. When selected, it re-creates the unmistakable sound and feel of Marshall's 100W valve power roar. The Clean mode produces incredibly dynamic, 3-dimensional clean and bluesy crunch. Click into Crunch and unleash the unbridled aggression and bite of the JCM800 Series with levels of gain never conceived of in the '80s. Amp 2 takes over where Amp 1 leaves off with OD2 dishing up more sheer gain than any other Marshall ever while giving you maximum control in shaping your signature sound.
MF400 4x12 Cab
It's specifically engineered to reproduce the balanced mids and mammoth bottom end that are the hallmarks of extreme rock and nu metal. Sonically optimized Celestion speakers and pro-gauge internal wiring coupled with Marshall road-tough construction are equal to every sonic and physical demand.

I tryed this amp out at a guitar shop in OKC and I was blown away. Not just by the amazing distortion, but how crisp and natural the clean channel sounds. You could not get that clean of a signal with any tube amp much less a JCM. There are people downing this amp just because its not tube. Well there is a reason why they call it "HYBRID" the preamp section has one tube per channel. The power section is solid state so it can change its tone with every channel. For all you tube buffs out there, My suggestion is either run a Marshall EL34 100/100 Power Amp through the specker outs. (But if you do this, You would be better off buying two MF400 cabs so the speakers can stand 100 more watts added to the already 350 watt amp.) Either that or buy something else and shut up about this amp. I played a JCM800 right before I played the MF350 and on AMP2 OD1 I couldn't tell the difference. I personally think that the MF350 is a better buy than any JCM beacause one, more tone variety, two, cleaner signal on the clean channel, and three, you don't have to worry about power amp tubes blowing. That's my opinion and I have good insight to back it up. My conclusion is that it's a nice amp, nuff said!

I've owned this amp since about this time last year. I admit I tested it out and thought it sounded great...at low volumes. Got on stage with it at the whisky agogo and couldn't even get the tech to balance out the clean and distortion channels. I've been on stage with this amp about 15-20 times now...the highs don't cut, the bottom end has no clarity, the mids are iffy at best. The sound quality is unlike the TSL or any other REAL FULL TUBE marshall amp out there. The people who claim this amp is the best or what not, obviously haven't played good amps yet.The only thing I liked about it was when I recorded with it. I actually enjoyed the solid state side more than I did the tube side, which doesn't say much about the amp.If I were you, I would do myself a favor and would save my money and get a real marshall half stack...

i've had my mode four for over a year now, and i may only be 17 but iv lived and learned with amps. this is the one, it holds up where every amp falls short. the main thing you need to know, don't use a single coil guitar on this amp. its like using a fly swatter to go hunting. you need the humbucking beef of a seymour duncan or better yet- EMG's to fully experience this amp. i have a american fender stratocaster which iv customized and spent almost $$$ on, and now i find that with my style of music, its going to be hanging on the wall. becuase you don't use a strat, or single coil with the mode four. remember that
This amp does not produce tube tone. Tube tone, which is what you want if you buy a Marshall, comes from strained power amp tubes. A tube preamp, which is what this thing boasts, is responsible for about 5% of tube tone. This is a solid state amp, and if your ears are yet untrained to what this means, just take my word and buy the JCM800 2203 reissue for the same price. Okay, it isn't 350 watts but if it's too quiet for you, well, you're alone in that opinion. This amp sounds fizzy, lifeless and flat. Don't let those couple of preamp tubes fool you, this is SOLID STATE SOUND and that is bad. I took 10 minutes of my life to write this in the hope that I will help some young, distant stranger stray away from bad tone. Please, take my word.
The Mode Four is another Marshall masterpiece. After playing Mesa, Peavey xxx, and plenty others I soon foound out all those amps are great... at low volumes in your basement. The real magic happens when you play it live. so loud with that mammoth low-end yet retaining clarity. Even when detuned or baritone. I may have to sleep in the box cause the thing costed an arm and a leg but tone usually doesn't come cheap. Gibson+Marshall forever.
I recently purchased the Mode Four. It is MORE than any guitar player could ever ask for! It goes from blues to the darkest metal with a simple turn of a few knobs. You've not played a Marshall until you've played a Mode Four. Buy This Amp!
This head is a necessity for anyone into a massive low-end amp. I am currently in the process of recording a band that is using this amp, along with a jcm 2000 and peavy XXX. I read through the reviews and have heard things about this not sound like a tube head, because its not. It still sounds good though, if your looking for that sound then buy a tube amp. This amp has a killer low end, the mids and hi's aren't so great though. If your into sick low-end sounds for Nu-metal, Hardcore, Thrash, etc. get this amp. Now recording this amp something else, the amp sounds good low, but like any amp the volume will change the tone, and this beast is pushing 350 watts, I highly recommend getting a power break with this amp so you can achieve diffent tones in the studio.
There's one problem with this amp it doesn't sound good with a strat. I mean you must have a guitar with a fat tone. If you don't consider sending this amp back. Anything else and you just can't get the tone out of this amp. Otherwise it's good. But there is only one problem this this i only play strats.
First of all, the Marshall Mode Four is good for almost anything except for heavy metal.I have one thing to say about the distortion on the mode four: "Horseshit." Absolutely disgusting. Chords were very muddy on a Schecter C-1 w/EMG 81's, which is a very good guitar.
I bought this amp in July of 2004 and play it through two custom madison 4x12 cabs. I play a Gibson Les Paul with all of it. This amp rocks, and rocks hard. Louder then you would ever need an amp and more gain then you would ever need. The clean channel is the best I have heard, ever. They way it can be cyrstal clear but then as you pick hard it will start to break up, just like an all tube amp, but without the hassle of having an all tube amp.
i just got this amp for christmas, it is the best amp i have ever played in my life, the clean is beautiful and the distortion channels kick a**,
this amp is the best thing to ever happen to your rock/punk/metal/hardcore/alt bandextremely flexible in tone with everything from a warm clean with excellent reverb to a blistering screaming high end distortion, punchy and smooth, with just about every conceivable rock tone inside and enough power to play your own arena concert unmiced. i've found the tuning mute to be really handy and the mid range scoop to be great for that tight low end metal guitar. it really gets nasty while still retaining it's tonal and harmonic qualities. the solo switch and discreet channel volumes are also really nice for adding that extra push and backing off the dynamics of a song with just a kick. the only downside to this amp is that it's so powerful that it really goes to 11 around the 2 o clcok position, so if you're looking for more small venue/ practice style amp you're either going to have to get a bigger p.a. or a power soak. plus the front of house guy will probably make you turn down unless you're down with a lot of the room sound being direct from amp. i reccomend side stage, the drummers deaf already anway.
