I have been looking for a ballsy Marshall, something when I can get a tight classic rock sound with heavy gain. The Splawn seems to be very versatile, but I have heard a few people say they are "sterile" and "unforgiving" Most compare them to a high gain (DSL100, perhaps) Marshall on steroids, although you can back that off. The one thing I don't personally care for is that squeezed Mesa sound with no definition in the high end. I want the high pitches, harmonics, etc, to sustain. Can you play a Splawn through a closed back 2x12 cabinet with Celestions and get a thick Marshall sound with a Les Paul or PRS (humbuckers), or do you need a bright guitar to make these amps work? Also - no reverb, but it has a buffered EFX loop, right/ What do you think, worth the money? Also, are they heavy (like 50 pounds)?
