So... theres this DSL100 chilling round here for 900 AUD. am just wondering how versitile is the Hard Rock-Metal genres it is. I was listening to some clips on youtube and it sounded pretty farty, reckon thats just the 13 year old's EQing abilities? I play everything from zz top through to bullet for my valentine, But i have my bassman to cover my cleans

so, am asking, how will this go at giving me all the hard rock/metal tones between Uriah Heep and Stone Sour?

It's great for cleans and high gain stuff, not so for that Marshall crunch type tone. It's cover Stone Sour/BFMV, maybe not the ZZ Top side of the ledger.

I disagree, I think the JCM2000 DSL100 is a great sounding head for your typical Marshall-ish crunch, the classic crunch channel is very dynamic and very well voiced to more vintage tones. It's really quite the underrated amp, really does everything decently well. Very jack of all trades kind of amp.

I agree. If one can't get a wide array of classic rock tones from a JCM2000, it's operator error

not very burly though if you want tight metal, like most Marshalls it gets pretty fizzy when you turn the gain up. that might only be with EMGs though.

Disagree... YMMV, but I have been able to get great high gain results from JCM2000's, w/ passive pickups.
