      EDIT: One other amp I will consider is a VHT 50CL w/ EQ

        No response from Rho, I guess he may be having more trouble than he thought getting the mark IV to sound like a marshall.

          Were you going to trade your IV for a DSL? *cringe* I can see a DSL for sale in 2 weeks if you do that. I played one yesterday. I think it's a cool amp but IMHO a MarkIV is better everywhere.

            I've always liked them and I'm surprised I ahven't owned one yet. If somebody put some cash on top I'd proabaly go for it.

              Sorry bro... I hooked it up yesterday... without messing with the Graphic EQ it was kinda close.. I'll record a clip soon, promise.. I just don't have good rec equipment, $10 Shure mic going into a Zoom PS-2....

              I'll plan on messing with it tomorrow...

                Ok.. I spent some time trying to dial in the MkIV to get the SD-1 JCM800 sound.... A/Bing both amps thru the same cabinet I got close.

                Although, when I setup and recorded a few measures the recorded version sounded as different as you could imagine... either my ears are f'd up and I am tone deaf or similar sounding tones to the ear never sound the same when mic'd.....

                  Dude...I think I remember that clip. That was one of the reasons I said '**************** it...I'm getting a mark IV'.

                  As I recall it had a hella VH brown sound going on.

                  Unbelievable.

                      Well I have a brand spanking new DSL50 and I'd love to have a Mark IV, but I'm not sure I'd trade, PLUS I wouldn't have the extra cash to throw in.

                        I am not sure you would like the mark IV since you are such a marshall guy. I bought a marshall 2553 silver jubilee to cover the sounds that I couldn't get with the mark IV. Have you tried a Silver Jubilee yet, I think you would love it. It is a total 80's rock amp.....

                        Anyway I love the mark IV, its a great amp and covers alot of ground.

                          Hey Brian! Nah, I still have yet to sit down and spend some quality time with a Jubilee. That's a Marshall I still haven't owned. lol

                            Here is a clip Gainfreak did with his MarkIV which sounds like it could be in the Marshall ballpark.

                            And is one i did a while back with my IIC+ that sounds a little Marshally to me. I did mine totally dry, just a touch of verb from Sonar.

                            Of course a Boogie isn't exactly a Marshall but i just wanted to show that you can get tones that some might mistake for a Marshall.

                              Yeah, I remember Ralph's clip. I have crap for ears but yeah I would guess Marshall.

                                Both clips sound fantastic! I "think" I would be able to tell that's not a Marshall, but who knows... I can hear some low mid stuff going on that sounds great, but different to me.

                                Then again, I might only hear that because I know what amp was used. LOL!
