    I was listening to some DSL40C and CST demos and they sounded pretty muddy. I think I found a couple of good metal clips, but it seems like it lacks some definition. Is that just the way they're dialing it in or is it a rather muddy amp?

    Some of my clips were muddy but i use it for character. I don't play metal much. Settings including speaker and pups matter. Also recording and how what they use. I always found one of my straight in clips sounded defined but it wasn't metal. Toggling through pups. All L2.



    I find running gain low on the red side or running it slight break up to midgain green side boosted can go anywhere. My ears may be busted though.:D

    Haha! I was just checking your thread out with the 2 100 watters. Good demo!

    The delay is a Recoil. It's decent but limited. I recommend a pass. I found only 1 sweet spot with it and I'm not kidding. More capable delays out there.
