I would personally go with a DSL100 if you are going to go JCM 2000 series. The DSLs are more reliable than the TSLs and are generally considered to have better tone. It suits plenty of genres from almost jazzy on the clean channel to pretty heavy. I would recommend a booster depending on how heavy you want to get though.

+1. with marshall, more stuff = more stuff to f*ck up on you. the DSL is a solid amp. my buddy has one that i get to play when i hang out, and it sounds great.

If you are looking for a great cab for metal you should get a 1960 A. its a 300 watt cab with killer speakers.

Or for less money get an Avatar and you get to pick your speakers. Besides you don't need 4x12, 2x12 is just as good and much lighter.

I liked the DSL100 a bit more than the TSL, thought honestly, they're not worlds apart. I still prefer an Engl Blackmore over both though, it's got a fuller, ballsier tone. The Marshalls, while being fine amps, sounded a little bland next to it imo. Seeing as the Blackmore is in the same price range as the JCM2000 amps, it's probably worth a look.

EDIT: Where are you located?

I have a TSL 100 and I actually prefer it over the DSL.

To me the DSL is a little warmer sounding. Which some people prefer, but I liked the tonal characteristics of the TSL better.

I never had any problems with the amp and its very reliable. The footswitch is another story. That thing sucks.

As far as tones you can get real nice clean tones all the way up to black label society metal tones.

Best advice is to jam the **** out of it and see if it sounds good and feels right to you.

Also it's worth looking into different companies for speaker cabs. Orange makes GREAT cabs, as does Mesa, but if you want something custom check out Avatar, Vader or (on a higher-end budget) Mills Acoustics.
