    Interesting. Great demo btw - really showed the charcters of the amps. When I tried the jubilee combo I hated it - just boxy sounding. But I saw another demo where I thought it was the best. Here for me it's the SV or the DSL. Unsurprising as I have a DSL. The DSL has enough gain the knock the edges off the sound and sweeten it a little but in a good way. The SV is gnarly. Also in a good way.

    I have both the 800 and the Jubilee. The SV20 is my next one. I had the Origin and it didn't do it for me. It sounded more modern and not vintage at all. Not even faking it. It didn't respond like I hoped it would. I also have a DSL1H and it cranks. I know I want the plexi. Its the tone I have sought after for years. All of these small heads are good. I hope to get the SV sometime soon. The prices are a little steep though. They keep creeping up on Reverb and nobody wants to budge on the price. I wouldn't pay more than $900 for any of them. Yes they are good but they are PC board not hand wired. I am pissed that the Origin was $300ish and the others are $1000 plus. There is not much in the middle. It is a chunk of change to fork out. I am thankful they finally made these after waiting 20 years. My dreams did come true.

    Great review, with excellent recording that captures what each amp can do in all the modes.
    I'm sure the other three are "better" , but I'm happy with the DSL20HR so far.
    For the price it's a great value. I didn't realize how loud these 20 watters could be, I can push two 4x12's , volume on 3, and it's very loud. I would think on 4 or 5 and it could easily keep up with any drummer/band situation.
    The 20HR has a nice clean channel, and the crunch channel is very fat/thick sounding.
    It has a voicing that I heard in the videos, and it is the same in real life, similar to the 100H, But the 100H is tighter.

    @Guitarjon

    Great video Jon, professional production as always! Superb playing and my kind of music too! I especially like the way you show what amps can do, from clean to crunch and then more overdriven tones. You don't just chug away,..djent, djent, djent,...like many do.

    I liked the SC20 and the SV20 the best of the four. It's amazing how alike the SC, SV, and Jub can sound, especially in the mix. I Always enjoy your music, your playing and your production.



    (On another note Jon, you've lost quite a bit of weight man, what's your secret buddy)?

    Thanks! I appreciate the comments!

    I lost 30kg in about 5 months and I did that by doing the Keto diet and intermittent fasting. Also some cycling but nothing radical. This diet has changed my life! I recommend it to anyone who wants to lose weight.

    Thanks again for the great comparison video John, looks like things are going well for you. I’m a fan of all the amps mentioned.

    There are various ways of staying healthy/losing weight. In my case high fat and 0 carbs seems to do the trick but I know that other people have also succeeded with high carbs, no meat and low fat etc.

    Most don't ever use that pull rythem clip. If anyone knows how to demo the Mini Jub, you just don't use it. On the lead channel without the rythem clip, it's a much beefier tone and sounds just way better. But he never demoed that at all. Very disapointed.

    do you have the SC combo now or the head with a cabinet. Becuase the Jub combo comes with Greenback. The original combo's came with vintage 30's . Sound way better.

    that's because the Jub combo comes with a Greenback speaker. It needs a Vintage 30 speaker like the original combos.

    Other than the V-type speaker, it could be in the way that they are designed to project.

    I played around with different back panels on a blackstar combo once. Made quite a bit of difference. Never sounded like I liked though. It's gone.

    Looking at the rear of the SV it looks like there's plenty of room for a 12 incher in there.
