    Awaiting a barrage of comments saying its a crap amp...

    Seriously, I owned one for a year. It was thin and trebly, had a noisy high gain channel and gets really, really hot. There are better amps for the money.

      I was wondering why anybody would want one too, but didn't say anything.

          I was really disappointed in the DSL-401 I had. Now that they've double the price on them, they're even less attractive.


          I'm looking for a hi gain amplifier with decent cleans...
          I have tried the F Series Mesas, and thought the distortion was ****************ty, but had good cleans.

          I was also thinking 5150 Combo, they'll probably go up a ****************load in price.

              I just bought a Fender Super Sonic. It's the first Fender amp I've ever heard with really good distortion. Excellent Fender clean and really good hot Marshall gain.

                Also, my budget is $700 MAX with shipping. I don't have a choice, I've been saving my checks from work, not spending a cent, and will barely have enough in about a month.

                  Can that B-52 get a hi-gain tone?

                    Here's an exerpt from a local ad I saw today:

                    Marshall DSL401 Tube Combo Amp for sale - 7/27/06
                    Selling my favorite combo amp to finance a new bass. 40 watts of all tube Marshall power. 4 EL84's and three 12AX7's -- don't let its size fool you, this one has a lot of muscle and will compete with ANY drummer. Clean channel has plenty of blues-y crunch when you turn up the gain and overdrive channel is JCM900 on steroids, especially when you turn up to eleven with the optional distortion boost (on top of turning up gain to 10). Recently serviced at J Gravity Strings, replaced all of the power tubes with matched Groove Tubes -- just to enhance the sound. With a fine tuning, this amp went from being good to freakin' incredible. Still have included footswitch. These sell for over 1000.00 new online, will sell for $600/obo.

                      So would you guys think I'd be better off with a 5150 Combo rather than a JCM2000 DSL401?

                        Almost anything is better than a DSL401. I haven't heard on, but in that price range I've heard very good things about the Traynor YCV50.

                            There's a Mesa F-30 sitting on ebay right now at $499 with 8 hours to go.

                              if your intrested in the 201 (20W) let me know. they don't seem to have the reliability/overheating issues that the 401's have. i've never had any trouble with it. i'm dumping it b/c i just don't have any need for it anymore - it was my first tube amp. i now have a marshall head/cab set up and i want to get a combo wth a different flavor.

                              i replaced the stock speaker with v30. this solved the "thin & trebly" thing that everyone talks about with these. if you liked it in the store you'll like this even more.

                              i'll give you a good deal. pm me if interested.

                              later.
