    1. A stock JCM 800 is not a very aggressive amp by todays standards, nor were they ever really meant to be ultra high gain. Where they excel is in dynamics and headroom. But without a "kick in the nuts" they´re actually pretty tame.

    2. No, such a pedal does not exist AFAIK, or I´d be using it instead of my head and 4x12 for quieter settings

    I seem to recall that Marshall "Jackhammer" pedal reminded me a lot of 800 tone... Not that I ever owned one, and it would have been running through my Marshall...

    Don't be fooled by the name - it has plenty of aggression on tap!

    Ya i was shocked how clean my JCM800 is and it has had a gain mod!!! My favourite player that uses a JCM 800 is Canadian Kim Mitchell and he pushes his with a Boss Blues Driver and a Boss Compressor here and there as well as a Chorus and sometimes delay. All his stuff is stock and the JCM 800 50 watter goes into a 4x12 with greenbacks..

    In the course of a show he gets extreme solos, nice cleans, and spacey sounds.... And his rythym crunch is nice.... I hope to get the same sounds oneday... i have the strat with PAF like humbuckers and an old 50 watt 800.... now i need the cab and turn my 800 back to stock

    I've never heard a Plexitone, but the most Marshall-like pedal I've ever heard was a modded BOSS DS-1.

    I use 3 pedals that can coax a pretty decent "kinda 800 tone"......Marshall Jackhammer,CM Plexitone,and my own modded DS1.....The JH does it pretty well and is a pedal reasonably priced....The DS1 is ok,but at times seems just a bit fuzzy at higher drive settings,but not too shabby for a modded $40 pedal..

    I get great tone and incredible sustain with my Plexitone,but it's pricier,but you get what you pay for!

    +1 on the MI Audio Crunch Box.
    it has that aggressive marshall character.
    great little dist box -- reasonablably priced too, so it won't hurt to try it!

    A Carl Martin Plexitone will totally get you where you want to go. In fact I have one for sale right now. I'm only selling it because I need money to get my Vibrolux Reverb out of the store (it's on layaway). This pedal rocks!http://cgi.ebay.com/Carl-Martin-Plex...QQcmdZViewItem

    The guvnor did really well. It get about as close as I have heard in a pedal. The crunch channel on the jackhammer pedal was good as well but I liked the guvnor better.

    I Own a Guv'nor also,but I Like the JH better because it covers the 800 territory and beyond with it's extra modern style gain...I don't need more gain than a JCM 800,but the JH has it for those singing Santana style leads...I use mine basically for a kinda 800 crunch tone and it works really well in my setup.

    Or one of the DS-1 mods that some forum guys do. Fairly righteous Marshall-tone-in-a-box, and pretty cheap, even when modded.

    With the gain turned all the way down, it's an outrageous FAT boost.

    YMMV

    Also try an OCD

    Cheers

    I would say the Jackhammer, Tonebone Hot British and maybe the SFX-03 can do a bit of it. Close is a matter of taste. So if that exact tone is what you are looking for you need a very loud amp.

    There's like a gazillion pedals out and avaliable to us! Sometimes it stifles the ability to pick something!
