The Meanest Marshall Mod?

Post by buriedorburned » Sat Jun 14, 2014 11:05 pm

Who makes the meanest Marshall mod? I always considered the SG Bully to be the meanest Marshall mod I've ever heard, but since those are few and far between, who's taking the mantel?

+1 Another vote for Voodoo Amps

for me the meanest non-modded marshall I ever owned was a 2555SL
"sig slash head" - (Years ago "my tone" was running my "prized" 2555sl 1/2 stack in tandem with a Splawn Pro mod 1/2 stack - "Killer & Heavenly" sounding but also deafening

I sold the 2555sl after I got my Voodoo Recto module - its has a
vibe/tone similiar enough to the marshall 2555sl but with more
available gain

can't go wrong with a voodoo mod IMO

for me, the voodoo recto made feel as if I were actually plugged into
a real "made in britian" marshall head whereas other well known modded modules made me feel as if I was playing an amp the was voiced either
a little to the left of or a little to the right of a marshall (where the marshall is right in the middle tonally)

Yeah, i know that! That's what i wrote in the original post, since that's basically gold dust around here, i'm asking what takes the mantel otherwise?

The MashAll+ in Jose800 mode. gets my vote. I'd also give a nod to the JF grailtone. I shouldn't have sold mine. Cool module. Its better than the bully, at least IMO.

For surfer/punk rock, the JF QM wasn't bad, but it has a very different vibe.

The GrailTone is NOT a "mean" Marshall mod. It's higher gain, but vintage higher gain aka EVH type Marshall heavy.

I have the Quickmod and that is the perfect mean Marshall mod. It does high-gain 80s heavy+ Marshall perfectly. Don't know how it compares to Mash-all but it's for sure heavier than the JF 1959RR Platinum and the SL2X.

It goes from GNR to ADA Mp-1 3TM sounds to as heavy as you want Marshall sounds. Get one and I'm sure you'll be happy. This is probably OD2 2nd or 3rd gear:

I really like my Friedman HBE Steve Stevens hot pink Marshall mod. It speaks when played (ummm errrr ahhhh - that kinda stuff, cause mods don't speak English.)
