    What do you do? His comes with the 6 button footswitch and I also have a DSL40C. Both are in excellent condition.

    Do it.
    The 100h is just the 100W version of the 40c...

    I like my JVM 205 & 410 more than my DSL40C, but I have grown quite fond of the new DSL20H.

    My DSL 40C i picked up when Sweetwater was blowing them out at $399...
    I can always use it for the stages that are too small for the 4x12's or half stacks.

    I voted to go for the JVM.

    JVM is too modern voiced for me. I’d keep the 100.

    I have both and I like them both for what they do.
    Jvm is more compressed, but in OD1 with gain at 9/10 oclock, it opens up nicely for me.
    More gain on tap if needed, while in comparison, the dsl100h, does the classic rock thing just awesome! Cant go wrong with either. Thats why I own both :cheers:

    I haven't played through the JVM yet but it reminds me of Marshall's answer to the Mesa Mark V what with all the modes and the huge foot switch and all. Accurate?

    Kind of. Imo, it was the Jvm that finally put them in the "High Gain," market.
    Mesa of course is tighter. But the Jvm when opened up, sounds great.

    I've used my jvm 205h in band practice, we play classic rock and classic metal covers. I had zero problems cutting through as expected in a Marshall, and had plenty of gain available when I needed it. I love the dual master volume and use it as a solo boost all the time.
    This is my second 205h in the last 10 years. I sold my first one, even had it modded.
    My current is totally stock and is perfectly fine.

    Plus the Jvm retains its value, and you can always grab a used dsl very affordable.

    I voted yes, but might change my vote based on the answer to my next question. Are the 100 and 40 you referenced both actually the older H & C or the newer HR & CR? Either way, if the 100 is the earlier H, definitely trade and if the 40 is the CR, even more so! From a $$$ standpoint, it's a no brainer anyway!

    Just Sayin',

    A few short years from now , The JVM will hold it value above the 700dollarzone for years to come IMHO …… The DSL100s will be used all day long at around 500bones …… just an edu guess

    They are both the last generation not the newest ones.

    Like you said the 40 covers the gaumet of the 100h, jvm is a different flavor, with a few more options, TRADE ! Cheers Mitch

    If it was the 100HR it would be a little more of a maybe, as the 100H has no midi, the red channel is gross and the iron is weak........ so IMO the JVM is way more versatile, has midi, has 2 loops, and the best iron, and the one I would choose, hands down.

    For sure man. You akready have the DSL flavor with the crunch 40C. Run ut through a 4x12 and would you really have any difderence with tbe 100 dor the most part??
    JVM all day long man. It does old school tones too.
