I play JVMs, a 410 Satriani and a 215 combo as my main heads ( as well as an EVH5150iii el34 occassionally), but I decided to get a dsl100hr as a second line/ alternative, maybe sell the EVH, but I had repeated noise problems on new amps just as described here. I gave up on the dsl, too many QC problems. Some brands have Asian built amps that seem to be reliable, but Marshall's partners seem to have issues...maybe just too many miles in shipping containers. The Marshalls made in England are dead reliable, really high build quality. I'm staying away from Asian Marshalls!
