    hell yes, this is quite possibly the best score ever. i'm loving the crunch channel with my LP. This amp is definitely a keeper. i can't imagine getting rid of it. love the verb. definitive rock tones. i don't care if it's not point to point or the amp of the month. i like it better than the elmwood 90 i had. i would say it's better than most other amps i've ever owned ....for me.

    the rivera 4x12 bonehead cab with greenbacks in it no doubt is a great match for it.

    hey congrats. I had a DSL50 that I loved, it was more or less a one trick pony that did one thing very well and everything else so so. Try this setting Clean channel/ with the drive button engaged. Drive and Level at 12 o clock adjust EQ to taste. That with a les paul roll back the volume for cleans was a great crunchy 70s rock kind of tone. Also with slightly different settings I used to get a better SRV Rude Mood tone with that amp then i did with anything and I own an old super reverb right now. Preatty weird eh?

    there is no drive button on the clean? a midboost only

    also i think most amps are one trick ponies....even if they have more than one channel. usu. they do one thing really well.

    Congrats! I've been through some boutique amps that I loved, but I keep ending up back with regular 'ole production Marshall stuff. I think the JCM2000 line is freaking awesome.
