I picked up a DSL100 yesterday, but it turned out to be the old 100H model and not the newer 100HR model that I had ordered (the originating store had taken in a used model and put it under the wrong SKU). I just spoke to a friend who works in the chain and he did a search for me. I can get either a DSL100HR or a JVM210H for the same price ($999 Canadian). I am not sure which to choose. The DSL has the half power switch, but the JVM has a level control on one of its effects loops and I am assuming I can plug in a patch cable and use that as an additional master volume like I could on a TSL122 I used to own. The JVM would appear to be more versatile, but I have no experience with them so that is just an assumption. Due to my lack of familiarity with the options I would like to lean on the expertise of the members here. I am only a basement player, and a crappy one at that, who plays classic rock and '80s metal. I would be playing the amp through a Marshall 1936 cab using a Les Paul, Tele (four way switch), and a Gretsch. I do prefer vintage type tones rather than modern ones. Based on all of that, what do you all think I should choose - the DSL100HR or the JVM210H?
