The JCM 900 Dual Reverb was produced by Marshall during the 1990’s. Marshall engineers voiced Channel A for sparkling clarity but added enough percussive punch to kick out every note. Channel B provided “potent gain and grinding aggression” for solos. Each channel has its own reverb control.
The Dual Reverb sounds so fine that no less than ZZ Top bluesman extraordinaire Billy Gibbons used a quartet of model 4100 heads during the band’s Recyler world tour. Billy’s tone settings? Click here and see what you think!
