Hi, iv been looking at getting an all tube head, and iv come across two i like the look of - a Marshall jcm2000 dsl50, and a laney gh50l. I play in a progressive metal band, so i need a fair amount of hi gain, but im on quite a tight budget (so dual recs etc are out of the question)

Any help greatly appreciated! thanks

since they are both respected brands, asking online would not be a very good idea to decide which one is better for YOU. what you need to do is try them both out and see which suits your style and taste more.

Try them out and see.
I've played a few DSL's, they're very nice sounding amps.

Fender Strat/Tokai LS80>few pedals>Orange Rocker 30

I love my GH50L whilst I hate all DSL's I have heard.

Decide for yourself, and listen to artists who use the amps in question.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.


Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.
