    Hello Marshall Forum,

    Really glad I found this place. I'd like to introduce myself and give you my back story.

    I've been playing guitar on and off for the last 20 years, however in the last 6 years I've taken it to an obsession level. I have a black eppy LP standard and I got my first Marshall DSL40C a couple months ago. I'm having new tubes put in it and I'm picking it up today. This amp has been a game changer.

    I used to think amps were rectangle things I had to navigate through in a guitar store to get to the guitars. I paid very little attention to them. I had a crappy peavey 25 watt SS amp that I thought was fine. I just used my Boss DS1 and thought, well that's all I needed.

    Then one day I saw a used eppy LP for sale and had to have it. After that purchase I thought, maybe I need to upgrade my used $75 peavey.

    Went to Sweetwater, went to guitar center, asked a million dumb questions. Questions so dumb they pointed me to modular amps. Um.. no, that's not really what I'm after. Then one day in the used section of sweetwater I plugged in a Marshall DSL20C. Instant love. instant warmth. Probably how a mother feels the first time holding her baby. This is it. This is what I want.

    Then the sales guy starts talking about tube amps. Tube amps, what are those? A million more dumb questions which he answered and I walked out of there knowing this obsession was getting notched up another level.

    Spent the next couple months checking marketplace and craigs looking for a Marshall and reading everything I could about tubes amps and Marshall. Then one day a Marshall DSL40C came up for sale and I responded to the ad 10 minutes after it was posted.

    Bought it. Couldn't believe it. It's been a total game changer.

    Anyway, glad I found this place. I look forward to learning as much as I can and asking a million dumb questions :)

    Thanks
