    Well, I received it yesterday. Factory sealed and all. It's everything I expected and more. Purrs like a kitten and roars like a lion. INCREDIBLE POWER!!!!!! Great tones!!! I have the DSL40CR, so I kind of knew what to expect, but holy shit! Interesting that it came with TAD EL34's. My DSL40CR came with JJ EL34 II's (which sound great too). I didn't check the bias just yet. This amp flat out rocks my friends! If you were ever on the fence about getting one, think no more. :dude::shred2:

    Thank you! :) It is!

    Yes, I'm keeping it for a "grab and go" amp.

    Congrats! Great amp!
    TAD tubes are good ones. I don't like JJ tubes, the current market has much better tubes than JJ.

    Yup! I was surprised to see them in there as I never heard anyone mention that. Anyways, I'm not a big fan of JJ's either, but those EL34 II's are quite good compared to ones I've heard in the past.

    I don't know but I'm sure that TAD tubes are much better than JJ el34 2's. I bought some JJ tubes, preamp and power tubes. Really I don't like It. I never will buy JJ tubes again.

    Just checked! :coffee:

    My 03-18 DSL100HR has oem Marshall branded tubes. The power tubes have stickers on the bases that say "JJ 52 12/17". The pre-amp tubes are branded oem also. They are labeled "ECC 83 WK 17/09".
    :cheers:
