Hey ya'll

I am in search of a new amp. I currently use a peavey 5150 100 watt head
and i am interested in a Marshall DSL 100 JCM2000 head.
What are some thoughts/opinions on that specific marshall?

I play mostly From Autumn To Ashes, Here I Come Falling, A skylit drive and emarosa styled music. Would the marshall do the job for that or should i just stick with the peavey?

Thanks!

firstly post in GGA

secondly peavey has a US gain setting(punchy), marshall is more brit sounding (crunchy)

i`ll get the mods to move it to the right forum

Two different voicings... I wont comment on the voicings as that's all simply personal preference.

I will tell you, the DSL doesn't have as much gain on tap, but still more than any respectable metal guitarist should ever need for rhythm, and if you're not using an overdrive or a midrange heavy boost as a lead boost, you're never gonna cut the mix anyway.

The clean channel is useable, But has the same flaw, it shares it's clean channel with the crunch channel, you cant switch between them with the footswitch.

I assume you play metalcore/hardcore/post-hardcore by your influences... either amp will do those genre's more than adequately. Hardcore/Metalcore bands are starting to get into JCM800's (A7x, Atreyu, Underoath, SOTY, Shadows Fall are the ones I can think of off the top of my head), and the DSL's I've played have all been able to do reasonable impressions of a JCM800.

But on the flipside, a lot of metalcore artists are using 6505/5150's, just check Peavey's page to see who's using them.

Anyway... thats just my $0.02

woops sorry mods for posting in wrong forum =X

yea I basically play a lot of post hardcore/ hard rock.

The style I'm really getting into is based off of the from autumn to ashes album "abandon your friends" and lighter screamo. I can't really nail the specifics cuz the list can go on for days haha.

thanks guys!

It's odd how they don't sound too different mixed together..

I'm gonna go for 5150 left, JCM right.

you are correct

also the jcm was played a better guitarist so that doesn't help haha

Ah, who got it right? Don't leave us in suspense!

On a side note, there was a bit of a volume difference too.
