Go JCM 800. That amp can do everything, with the correct pedals. the old ones are better basta all stock and di laspag. If you cant find one, get a friedman. they're better at nailing that marshall tone even better than marshall nowadays.

DSLs suck.

So are MGs.

but if you happen to make the mistake of buying either of those. crank the master then use the preamp gain as the master volume. marshalls are known for their power amp distortion/overdrive. atleast youll feel the push of air coming from a real marshall.

dsl40c's are fine cause theyre el34s they thicken up, when turned up.

but the 15h? and 5 watters nope..

go 800. or vintage modern pa din. Id even go for for a class 5 and turn them up to get that marshall sound.

Can't blame you. I don't expect lower watters to keep up with the band, more so with a loud drummer.  Anyway, other guitarist in the band I'm in currently plays DSL100H (when he doesn't want to setup his rack), sounds big and I can hear him over my JCM2000 DSL. EQing is the key but cabs and speakers have a huge influence how you will sound in live setting.

I had a VM2266, sounds perfect for classic rock/hard rock applications. Just didn't have enough gain even when boosted (IMO). JCM800 is probably my next amp. If wasn't for $1,200.00 used price tag, I will snatch one up.

ah ok. i am curious,  do you happen to own or used extensively any of the new dsl models or just base your review from watching youtube and reading online forums?

Marshall dsl15c user here! And i'm lovin the little critter. Crunches and bites like a boosted marshall! The gain knob has a weird taper though. I only have it at 10 o' clock and its very saturated. The digital reverb is just the right intensity IMHO. No complaints cause the tone just cuts through a dense mix of instruments playing at the same time. Definitely got that modern marshall tone.

If anyone bitches that marshalls suck, just turn it up so you cant hear the whinin'! Marshalls were designed and made as loud amps. Actually wanted to get that dsl50 head in the classifieds, but i knew i wouldn't be able to get those tubes cookin at the volumes i play. A 50 watt marshall is loud even with a full band. Mabubuwisit ka lang sa kakasenyas ng "sound engineer" to turn it down sa gig.. Unless i start playin those big venues that actually need the the 100 watt full stacks, im perfectly happy with my cute 15 watt small combo.

and yeah, i do own a lot of pedals.

btw sir, what type of music do you play? if you don't mind me asking?

here you go bro!



all the EQ's are set at noon. reverb max. gain 10 o'clock. volume to taste. tone shift off since scooped mids suck for the music i play, IMHO lang naman. resonance on, then it feels like you have a bigger speaker than the stock 12".

i love the toanz i get with my fender fat strat with the dimarzio area 67's neck, 61's mid, and x2n at the bridge!

Scooped mids sounds great when playing alone but when playing with a band, it gets buried.  Yan din halos settings ko in any marshall, I leave the bass boost on all the time pero depende parin sa speakers if I want to play with tone shift on or off.

Anyone got the Code 50 already? I auditioned it at JB music a few days ago and I must say it's ticklng my fancy in a bad way. Don't get me wrong, it certainly does not have the feel of playing a tube amp, but for the money I think it's a nice little toy to have around the house.

Jcm900 too thin, solid state rectifier over the tube preamp. Sounds ffuzzy. Dsl 100 england made is ok. Dsl 40 is crap. Jcm 800 is king

Damn! I missed my DSL 40C that i sold recently. I easily get bored with my Fender Deluxe Reverb, I missed the gainy classic sound of a Marshall amp. Plan ko pa naman kumuha ng 5 watter for my bedroom and living room practice, then mukhang puro negative ang review dito sa forum  :cry:
I'm a one eared musician, and yes I do exist.

thanks bro! its a marshall i can crank at bedroom volume level-ish!

Eto pa isa! Can't have too many amps. Doesn't have reverb which kinda bugged me at first, but i find that i actually prefer the tone without it. Gets a bit ice picky with bright geetars.. Now i need a 1936 cab...
