For a few hundred more you can get a full sized version of those amps which I recommend unless you need the small lightweight size.

I was lucky enough to be able to play the SC20, SV20 and the Origin50 at the same store. The SC20 was exactly what I had been looking for but the SV20 being a mini-Yngwie amp definitely got a lot of my attention. Ultimately I went with the 20 because it fit more what I play and like to listen to.

The Dawson's music store demos are the ones that sound the most like the in-room sound you get from the amps. In fact, those demos are stellar for giving a true-to-real-life sound. Between the SC20 and the SV20 I just say - how often is volume a concern and do the artists you listen to play JCM800s or Plexis? They both have excellent sound quality.

Said this before - I have an SV which I run with a pedal and a little black box in the loop which means logically I ought to have got the SC because I want more gain at controllable volume. What can I say - I love plexis. That said an SC would fit in nicely.....

Didn't get on with the Jube at all.

Prefer having a master volume and keeping the diodes out of the amp.

Yep. Playing a rude Marshall makes me...? Want to play a classic Marshall. I love the wrestling match. Why I don't like civilized amps that play themselves. Many do. Women and amps are sometimes a like. You got one that plays herself most of the time? Why are you there? Then there is a Marshall girl that demands proper fingering.

You can tell by the eyes rolling back in her head. Which is exactly what a good Marshall amps does.

Just out of curiosity, and maybe I missed it earlier in the thread, but why isn't the DSL20HR in the running?

Exactly this - I wouldn't want an amp with diode clipping so that I can plug that in if I want it. The master volume on the SC20 is handy, though I must honestly admit that I haven't give the SV20 a fair chance.

Didn’t mean as a diss but I like choosing my own overdrive externally. Running an SD-1 or TS-9 as a boost technically doesn’t use the clipping diodes in those pedals. I also use a TC integrated preamp clone pedal which kills it for higher gain thrash and death metal type sound.

I tried one - tried to like it but something wasn’t quite to my liking. It felt overly compressed. But Ola and Lambchopper have both proven you can get killer tones out of them.
