I am hoping to sell the following gear for around $1100 and use the proceeds toward a new amp.

Blackheart Handsome Devil Amp Head w/Blackheart 1x12 cab - $500
Epiphone Les Paul Studio Ebony - $275
BC Rich Warlock Platinum Series - $100
Jackson DK2 Eerie Dess Swirl - $300


I play in a band that will be gigging so I need something with enough power to play small to medium venues.

We play Classic Rock, 80's rock, and Modern Rock. I am the rhythm guitar player.

My budget is around $1500 total for head and cab.

I have been looking at the Marshall DSL series 100w amps. Would these be a good choice or are there any others out there for that price range that would suit my needs?

Also, do the asking prices for the above items seem reasonable?

Thanks.

Edit: I will be using a Boss ME-70 effects unit if needed, but not always.
Gear:
Fender Strat
Epi Joe Pass Signature
Epi LP Plus Top
Jackson Dinky
Fender Hot Rod Deville 212

unless you buy use you wont find any dsl 100 that cheap. i just bought a jcm dsl 100 used at guitar center for $900 and i love it! running it through a B52 cab that i bought new for $250 and i couldn't be any happier. i have played everything from jazz, to metal, to blues with it and it has done more than i could have ever asked for. good luck with your search for one!


a little side-note: it has the ability to be EXTREMELY LOUD so it might be too big of an amp for you to use without an attenuator. those run about $400. i run mine without one and to get the tone that i love i have to turn it up to 4 on the lead volume and it is close to being painfully loud so i would def recommend getting the attenuator when you can afford it.

Looks like a nice deal IMO.

However, go to a store and try it out as well as some other amps, maybe you'll like one better than the DSL.

the JCM2000 DSL is a nice amp, but pretty pricey. but if you can find one cheap enuff, grab it up, there awesome amps.

A suitable alternative would be the combo JCM 2000 DSL401, really nice amp, enough power for gigs as well.

No, the DSL combos don't sound as good as the head versions.
