I use just a little reverb with all my amps. I use the Marshall reverb pedal.
I'm selling off my Boss Waza Craft and buying 2 Marshall pedals. I should have done that earlier. The tone is just different. As with their amps, DSL has the tone which BB doesn't. I'm keeping my DSL.
Bassbreaker line of amps are nice I'm not a fan of any DSL. But the price point for a Bassbreaker 30R you could spend a little more and get some really nice Marshalls new or used. What kind of tones and functionality are you looking for?
Oh so you already have a DSL and want to add the Bassbreaker? If you have the bucks and are looking for something different than your DSL then its not a bad idea. The Bassbreakers have been out long enough I bet you could find a good deal on a used one.
Thanks cspencer - I guess I should have watched the video first
AmpMadScientist - I stand corrected.
I can't keep 2 amps. If I bought the BB30R I'll have to sell the DSL.
So whats your goal here? Youre not happy with the DSL?
After the discussion here I'm keeping the DSL. If I liked the reverb of the BB so much, I'll buy a delay pedal.
In that video the Bassbreaker definitely sounded better but I can't really vouch for that guy dialing in the Marshall well.
Here's the same guy on the DSL. It's solid here!! Note he's using the stock Marshall speaker in this video. But he switched that out for a lower level speaker when he did the BB comparison. Don't know why.
I finally listened to the video . BB sounded good, definitely one of their better amps for my taste, but nothing there to make me consider getting one over my DSL.
Maybe I should change the title with the words "no way"
I thought the Marshall sounded better through my HS-8's. By a lot. The BB was very boomy and the low end was too much, and I like warm amps. The Marshall would cut through well in a band mix.
I've played my BB30 in a couple of gigs, one inside and one outside. It cut through the mix with zero issues. I run it on an amp stand with the bass on about 2-3, mids dined, and treble on 8.
I would guess that given the right set up for the Bass breaker like the Texas heat was a huge upgrade for the DSL 40c . The problem for me was DSL didn’t have power to move the air like JCM 900 and it (900 DR )has a brilliant reverb. That said I went to a smaller amp . Not about the wattage but the EVH 15w kicks ass.
Short answer is no Bassbreaker doesn’t smoke the Marshall . There are great fender amps out there.
