    Do you mean a pedal to put in the loop of the amp, or a literal looper pedal?

    I don't use a looper. Messed with a couple of em but I don't really use em. Likewise, I don't currently run anything in the loop of the amp either, though if I were, it would probably be an EQ like the GE-R or the MXR ten band.

    Looking for a looper pedal that will record a lead and then play it again..

    We're gonna be playing a few cover songs where I play an intro, and loop it so I can sing over it. Particularly the song Blurry by Puddle of Mudd.. I'm gonna play those harmonics in the intro then loop it

    Don't leave them in the same room alone. You might end up with a Valvestate.

    I've been playing my TSL100 pretty much exclusively for a few weeks now. Bone stock 2003 other than some tube rolling. The prices seem to be climbing on these for some reason. If you can get one in good shape for $600 or less I don't think it's a bad deal. For whatever unimaginable reason the VPR works great on mine. If you could take the main board out of the equation I would put it just a notch below a JVM2 series. The JVM will do everything a little better, but nearly doubles the price to get it done.

    It's alright dude, but I appreciate your sincere concern. I assure you that nothing of the sort will happen anytime soon, as the TSL isn't even in heat right now, and isn't expected to be for several months still...

    If my TSL and your TSL get together do we get an LRT?

    Yeah I agree with this. Being an at home player now I was very happy to see Marshall release the Studio Series last year.

    Three great, low wattage amps that are simple and just the right amount of knobs.
    I jumped on the SC20 virtually as soon as I saw it. Kudos to Marshall and amp simplicity!

    Ehhh....I'm not quite sure, ...maybe??

    You'd probably have to ask @LRT#1 himself, and honestly......he's the only one of his species that I actually know, so he is gonna be the guy to ask about that, methinks LOL

    Do TSLs even come in male and female?

    Sheesh....

    I own a new style DSL 100 and a TSL 100

    The DSL is great. But it doesn't have the bells and whistles that the TSL has. Effects on the footswitch, extra channel, etc. For both Live and recording, the TSL is just better.

    They both rock your ever loving socks off!

    The TSL is the best amp I've ever owned by a long shot. There is nothing better.
    Mine has zero heat or bias issues, it's super quiet, sounds perfect for rythm or lead tracks.


    My humble 2 cents worth.

    This amp used to get slagged on the forums. Good to see it finally getting its deserved due.

    Which isnt? The Radial? I dunno. It works fine for me regardless. Gets a footswitchable loop on most amps that dont have one.

    I just pulled the TSL100 off the stack. I'm just getting acquainted with this guy, but it seems to do a better clean and everything right through crunch. It takes my Mojo Mojo on the front side way better than a TSL does, or a 900 for that matter. Of course it isn't as cheap as a TSL and you do have to assemble it yourself.

    JR it is one channel of bliss. My TSL isn't going anywhere, nor are my 900's. The honeymoon isn't over yet, but I do love this 800 clone. Now that I have it up and running I have a Metropolis FX loop to install.

    I had a TSL, probably one from the first US shipment. After three months and 8 major gigs I got tired of endlessly tweaking it. Same with Mesa Rectifiers. I eventually accepted that I was never going to get the thing to sound to my liking. After 20 years I finally came full circle and went back to Peavey Classics and any cab loaded with V30’s. That and some pedals and Les Pauls, and I’m happy as a clam with money in the bank again and zero credit debt. It’s a great feeling when you know your search is over.

    The TSL is a tweaker. Be aware that you could easily spend more time getting your sounds and balancing the channels, and if that carries on long enough you might regret it. There’s a reason it was discontinued. On the up side, if it’s a Marshall that you can get for a steal, and it runs right, you bought yourself a box that makes Marshall tones, even if you only use it to get one good sound.
