  • blackstar ht100 vs marshall TSL

                   Im just trying to get everyone elses opinion on tone between the blackstar ht100, which I just ordered to get rid of my Marshall TSL 122. I thought it  to be garbage I loved it when I first bought the thing but the longer I had it the more pain it became. I'm playing through a Gibson les Paul studio 91' with tom Anderson HT+1 humbuckers in it I have a pretty unique sound that I go for.

                 Although I do like classic Marshall here and there for covers I like the British tone with a tight low end I play everything from led zeppelin , 80's hair metal and some current hard rock like three days grace and such. So in all what does everyone think would be the best option for me I just don't think the TSL had enough gain for pinch harmonics and other songs open to all opinions and amp suggestions thanks everyone.

    Most modern sounds are boosted. At least they are when I play them on my JCM800. The Blackstar's I've heard have more gain on tap, so it will probably be a more versatile amp for your situation.

      I would say get a DSL, then the TSL.

      I like blackstar amps but Marshalls sound just a bit better and the mid range is more intune with the stuff you want to do. 

      Blackstars just sound too modern to be honest.


      Edit I just noticed it's the combo, sell it the combo's suck get the head. we have gone there, please follow!!!Rememberhttp://www.guitarampboard.comYes that's right^_^ ^_^

        I've never tried the HT100 and can only speak for the Blackstar HT-5, but I liked it with a boost, and it sounds like that's what would help the TSL, as well.
