  • Marshall DSL for Metal/Hardcore??

    Your thoughts?

    This was a discussion in another post. I just wanted to see what most people think. And I am not taking about a boosted DSL. I'm talking bare bones DSL tone. Of course you can make just about any amp sound more metal/hardcore with a boost.

    Imo I don't think they are good for metal/hardcore. Even with a boost I still think they sound crappy.

      I think the DSL would work great for that. It excels at heavy music. One of Marshall's best amps, IMO.

        Well really, playing a certain style doesn't dictate that you have to sound exactly like everyone else. I sure don't try to. In that respect, yes I would use a plain ol' DSL for that kind of music. You might possibly even be able to pull it off trying to sound like somebody else. But I don't believe they get as over-the-top as something like a 5150 though.

            The answer is yes, a DSL will work for Metal/Hardcore.....I used it for a Metal band i was in and it worked just fine. IMO it's not the ideal amp for Metal, but it can definitely do it.

              Yes you can do it. I had to run my mids on 10 to get the grind I wanted, but it pulled it off just fine.

                  If DSLs sound crappy for just about anything, you're doing it wrong.

                    DSL's are great amps for HC/Punk/Metal. Why the no boosting constraint? I boost every amp I own (gain off, level maxed) except the CCV. IMO, boosting adds a little tightness, etc but doesn't really alter the tone of the amp too much.

                        Our rhythm player/singer uses a DSL and 1960A cab w/v30's and it does a GREAT brit/thrash thing but it's a VERY different beast than the 5150. I think teh DSL CAN do metal but it'll just sound different. Not worse, just different.

                          Same here and still own it. Easy to dial, cuts throught the mix very well. Need a bit more gain, easy, just use your favorite OD. BTW, DSL likes to be crancked!!!

                          Go ahead and rock out!!!

                            I don't feel like the Marshall has enough gain on its own to do metal. I feel like with my DSL no matter how I use my settings it always has a certain sound to it that just not metal enough for me. If I play this thing next to my bro who is using my 6505+ the Marshall gets blown out of the water. I guess I gotta agee to some extent that the Marshall can do metal...But it's not ideal.

                            The reason I said specifically no boosts is because people on another thread were naming metal bands who use the DSL for metal. Someone mentioned Hatebreed. And I'm thinking how much does a band like that boost though? You can make any amp sound metal if you boost.

                              hatebreed uses tsl's and they dont boost at all
