The newer DSL series (not the newest) have been out over 5 years now. All I heard when they were released is how the HDF cabs wouldn't stand up over time, how they would crumble quickly after a bit of use and basically how the world was gonna end because of Marshall's choice in building materials. So where is the damage? I have a couple DSL's, and although I haven't mis-treated them, I have carted them all over (6 different states), loaned them out, and generally used them in all kinds of situations. They have ridden in cars, trucks, trailers, and one has even taken a bus ride or two. So far, not even a scratch I can see, say nothing of any structural damage. I would have at least expected some baffle wear near the speakers, or some corner crushed from some fatass sitting on it. But nothing. Nothing at all. Was this all much ado about nothing? When the JMD: amps were released, I saw crunched cabs before I saw a pristene new one. I do have to admit, the construction was different with the JMD: line being made out of some IKEA pressed board sawdust and all, it would have been pretty easy to predict. But the DSL's seem to be made from some sort of non-destructible epoxy-based board that stands up pretty good if you ask me. But I could be wrong... So let's see some photos of actual HDF damage to the DSL's. Post photos here.
