Great, thank you pef.

Get yourself a Soldano SLO, Peavey 5150, and Mesa Dual Rectifier schematics and you'll see plenty of ways to mod a Marshall for more gain. I did my 2203 and one for a friend and they scream. I switched mine over to 6L6 tubes for better bottom end. Once you start looking you'll see a lot of similarities between them all.

put the top hat emplexador in there. it sounds killer and uses the jcm800's # of gain stages. ive heard samples that rule!!

||Re: JCM800 added gain stage|
IMHO it will sound way much more "trebly" with lots of gain than the normal 2203/04 circuit.
I have modded some 2203/04s to real high gain amps without adding an additional gain stage, but you can do that, if you like "killer" distortion.
Easiest way to add an additional stage:
Place a single triode in front of V1a and start playing with grid stopper values. Normally you can add another gain control (pot) and I would recommend 100k as anode resistor and 4k7 as cathode resistor.
This has often been done in a very similiar way by Laneys GH
The mentioned schem "wastes" a triode, because you can rewire the tone stack triode to an additional gain stage very easily (you have to change tone stack caps for higher voltages).
