          Honestly...this is not music... it is hatred and self loathing expressed with loudness.

              DSL401 came out years ago, and they were well known for failure issues. I had one, and I resoldered the whole board....

                  I just find the DSL's to be lacking in character. They aren't bad, but personally I'd rather have a blackstar . Of course if I really had to choose in that price range, I'd pick a Laney over both.



                  But at least Marshall is trying.

                          I guess the old ones. I had a bandmate who had the 50 watt. Like I said they aren't bad amps, but they always left me wanting to play a jcm800 instead.

                            I have played both and the DSL is up there with the 800 it's just a slightly different beast.

                            The DSL the is the only amp I regret selling.

                              I don't know if the demo shows the amp or not, but it does sound a bit on the thin side. I don't exactly understand the blackstar comparison, I don't even think they are aimed at the same buyer except perhaps the price.



                              Anyway, here is some DSL 50. Just 10 watts more made in the UK though:






                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hGw2vCFiv8





                              Those go for really low used.



                              All the new DSL videos sound congested vs the older ones a bit...
                              <div class="signaturecontainer">&quot;is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!<br />

                              short answer: no...<br />
                              <br />
                              long answer: no way...&quot;</div>
