    I want to try out a DSL-100 or a DLS-50 or a TSL-100, because I've just now saved up enough money to buy one, but I don't live near anywhere that has one. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] I want to buy somthing used but I want to try one out first. I'm just wondering if any one uses or owns one and can give me an honest review (or sound clips) of it. Don't mean to steal you thread or anything dude, I just have a similar question that I didn't really think deserved its own thread.

    I don't have the opportunity to try alot of Marshalls out thats why I like opinions so I can narrow my amps down! I am not going to mess with looking for a modded marshall head to try and reproduce Ed's 1st album sound or anything. Just wondering which Marshall head will produce Ed's 80s tone the best--Fair Warning, 5150, OU812 tone! I understand that nothing is going to get Ed's sound perfect but thats OK.

    I would play my new Marshall head though
    a Wolfgang SP, Marshall 4x12 cab. w/ Vintage 30s
    and various effects

    Well if you're going to get a Marshall, the closest you'll get without spending a fortune is to get an early 70's metal panel Marshall. A four input non master Super Lead or 50 watter. You could also get decently close with a late 70's master volume JMP 2203 or 2204.

    Something else to consider are Budda amps. These amps are very close to that Eddie Marshall sound. The great thing about the Budda's is that while they sound better cranked up a bit they still sound great at low volumes, plus they have channel switching and effects loops that the old Marshalls don't have. I have the Budda Superdrive 30. It's the most Eddie sounding amp I have and that's up against a 1971 Marshall JMP50. These amps are also in about the same price range as new Marshalls. Can't recommend them enough if you want an Eddie Marshall vibe with modern features.
