    Pedaling the front of any amp doesn't mean gain added as the goal.

    Punch seems to really escape players? Don't know why.

    Changing the voice a bit here and there as well as feel? Where's the crime?

    Players use whatever to get their song right.

    Maybe the next thread will be make the song dependent on going straight in only. Flavors bitches. Flavors.

    Or bore me with that straight in tone. And if you need pedals I have some for sale so you're not stale...:D

    I played my friends DSL20 at band a couple weeks ago. No problem. Volume was at noon....so I coulda gone higher!

    have to imagine the SC20 would hold up even better?

    A quad of green backs will put you in the game for sure.

    While "Straight in" may seem like a nice concept, the reality is, unless the amp being used is multi-channel, and/or has enough gain for heavy rhythm, and fluid lead playing, pedals will be needed. While clean and crunch rhythm playing are easy "Straight in", trying to get a heavy rhythm or fluid lead from an amp without enough gain isn't logical, when there are tools available. Even higher gain Marshall's can get loose in the low end at higher settings, which pedals can help tighten. Always playing "Straight in", unless that's all you need to achieve, is akin to saying, "I have these power tools, but I'm going to do all this work by hand" (IMO).

    I have a JCM 2000 DSL 100 as far as pedals go I have a G Screamer and a DD3 Boss pedal I only use the DD3! I like my DSL 100 as is because it has a wicked distortion and good crunch and good clean. It's like a mid range between the JCM 800 and 900 you can best of both worlds if that's what you're looking for like me. :h5:

    The
    The DSL 2000 is the only DSL I really liked, most have that modern thing going on. Ever since I found the Ceriatone Chupacabra it really opened my eye's, it's the sound I'v been chasing all along and I didn't need to do anything to it. (+ brand new, hand wired for a grand... are you kidding me!) Although the amp can do lead or rhythm no problem, I want a 2 ch. amp with either 2 chupa's or a chupa and maybe a 101. I don't mind using a pedal for a lead if I have to, I'm just trying to come up with an amp that can do it all. I have a pretty good pedal coming, soon I hope, from Ceriatone called the "Horse Breaker" that should make a great boost pedal. One of the ways I like my Chupa is, dime the volume and set one of the drives about 1/3rd the way up, then use the other drive as volume. It's an old school way to really make it sing, and with all the tone shaping stuff on that amp you can really get some awesome sounds.

    Nice! I think the tone fits the tune really well. Did you use any delay/reverb in the loop?

    Also, what's your opinion of the SC20 compared to some of your larger Marshalls?

    I think that the amp shines, the only thing in the signal chain was the SD1, but the clip in the straight in thread it was off, the boosted clip it’s on just the nature of my garage gives it a bit of depth.
    Thanks buddy for the compliment.
    Cheers
