    Hey guys,

    I found a good price on a used DC30, which happens to be around the same price as a new Avalon 30. I know the Avalon is a simpler version of the Dc30, but how do they compare/contrast? Which has more headroom?

    Am also looking at a Black Cat Cub IIR. Any opinions? Thanks!

    DC30 all the way. It's an icon. You will love any of them but can't beat the DC

    :agree

    I just read an interview with Brent Mason (#1 studio guitarist in Nashville) he owns the DC30 among others and he can play anything he wants to play.

    I'd go DC30 too! Mojo, plus has more to offer than the other amp....

    And their reputation for great tone is awesome.

    I have an Avalon, and it's a great amp, but it equates to channel one of the DC30. The Avalon does have the defeatable master volume, though.
