Hey mates! Signed few days ago, first post. I'm in my eternal search for the 'perfect tone', as everyone else (I believe). Have been playing guitar for 15 years or so, have two active bands (one mainly britrock styled, with which already recorded an album, and another more hard/heavy styled). Still, I have little experience with Marshalls (the place where I live here in Brazil isn't that easy to try different gears). However, recently an wild DSL100H (2012 version) appeard, unique owner, very conservated, two years of bedroom use. I have read and seeing great things about them (DSL family) and planning on enter the into the "M's madness"! But still couldn't try it yet! My current rig is: - a Laney TI-15 (which am using just its poweramp) - a 56inc TubeStation (brazilian made dual channel preamp based on XTC green/red channels) - a monster board (tuner, fuzzes, boosters, mods, delay, wah... lots of pedals) The thing is: the Laney, in the same time that has that classic tone and a good amount of gain on tap, is letting me down in versatility and, specially, audio power! Not in every gig I can mic it, and then, the guitar gets lost (volume-wise)... the versatility I resolved with the external preamp, but the audio power is still lacking a bit! So... I could get this used DSL1000H plus a matching 2x12 (with the original 70/80's), a DSL40CR, a Origin 50 or even the newer DSL100HR (and will need a cabinet)... OK, I know, the cost of each izn't the same, but they aren't SO distinct here in Brazil (except for the DSL100HR, that costs the same as the used one + cabinet). Is there any affordable option, or is the DSL the better chance for me out there? I'm opened to other brands too. Here's my wish list: - british voiced (love modern bands and their tone, but that 800's growl is freakin' awesome) - all tube - head (preferably) - at least 30W, but a switch for lower power (ans even a silent line out) is would be highly appreciated - if single channel, that it has a good crunch, cleanable with the volume pot, and boostable for a high gain growling (even with the DSL, the idea is to use green on Crunch and red on Lead 01, as I don't care for a crystal clear clean sound) - effects loop Thanks in advance!
