What do you think of this amp? Seems very versatile. I primarily play rock 90's to present. Opinions?
Agreed. I see DSL100's on E-Bay at a 3 to 1 ratio vs. DSL50's. Wierd. Either people like their DSL50's better and won't give them up or maybe Marshall made a lot more DSL 100's?I think for Marshall tones in a non-boutique/non-vintage package, a guy could do a lot worse than a DSL50.
Seems I see a lot more used DSL100s than 50s. At least around these parts.
+1. Good, solid amp. I think reliability is pretty good with DSLs too. I also think the 100W DSLs sound a little better. Granted, who needs 100W?... for that matter who needs 50W? But I do think the 100W does sound better for some reason.If on a limited budget, it's hard to beat the bang-per-buck of a used DSL 50. It can produce some very nice tones. The main "con" is that it is a modern Marshall when it comes to build quality (which potentially affects its long-term reliability).
