Well I demoed a DSL40Cr a few days ago and finally understood the hype and love for the DSL, so I caved in and bought a DSL........ Ok, so its not the DSL40Cr but I found a good deal on a DSL1Cr combo and couldn't pass it up. I am really happy with it for what it is. I currently own an early 1960's Alamo Capri that is 2 watts and just love it. I always enjoy dimeing it and not going def, so the idea of a 1 watt DSL sounded amazing. I really enjoy this amp, only have had it home for a few hours but cant put the guitar down! A vintage 80's JCM800 1960A cab followed me home also, the DSL1 even sounds great thru the 4x12! One day I'll pull the trigger on a real DSL, the DSL40Cr is calling me.
