So I just discovered the Fireball is a little less than the JCM2000, but here's the catch: I'm possibly getting the DSL50 for dirt cheap because the lead guitarist in my band works at the GC and on top of that, I only have to pay half for my stack since my mom is willing to pay the other half and let me pay her back at a later time. I'm thinking about just going with a 1960 cab so I can get a quick rig. Would this be a good idea?

what kinda music do you play mate? name some bands maybe? and your getting an ENGL stack CHEAPER than a DSL stack? or did i read that wrong.?

I'd get the DSL cheaper than the ENGL. I'm going to be playing in a post-hardcore/alternative band (http://myspace.com/enamour for reference) and I would like a stack. I really like the tones of bands like Chiodos, The Fall of Troy, At the Drive-In, the Mars Volta and Circa Survive. A majority of those bands use Oranges, minus Circa Survive, whose guitarists use Soldano (Not sure what model. Not very familiar with Soldanos.) and a Marshall DSL100. I know Jason from Chiodos uses an ENGL Powerball, but I'm not sure how close a Fireball comes to his tone.

i dont know about u but, the engl is solely made for metal. if you raise it up more for a powerball you can have super high access gain.... Since you get everything cheaper it wouldnt matter if you bought the dsl for example same price for a powerball/fireball....

Fireball and Powerball are the same except powerball has more versatilities....

a DSL 50 should be fine for you and especially if your getting it very cheap

i can assure you that the powerball isn't a fireball with more versatility and features. the powerball sounds more proccessed, wheras the fireball is more raw sounding.

after hearing what bands you play, + for the dsl. even though i cant stand mine at the moment. by the way, playing through something like a marshall is guaranteed to make you a better player. theres no gobs of distortion to cover your ass, and it almost forces you to be a better player and learn techniques better. then when you step up to something more forgiving like an ENGL or a mesa for example, with more gain, you will not only be a better player but sound amazing, as your playing techniques will be alot cleaner. in short, learn to play well through a marshall and you will sound good. play well through an engl and you will sound amazing.

lol you know mesas sound cant even compare as good as marshalls supreme clean sound.... and unique distortion. Get yourself the jcm2000 or jcm series it will rock your socks off lol.

from what I hear (still haven't tried a fireball, lol) the fireball is more like a savage than a powerball...

it's really up to you, and it depends what you want to play. The marshall is more hard rock/80's metal tones, the fireball is more modern sounding.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The DSL is probably voiced more towards what you want to play. Although, you might want a boost depending on how much gain you want. Or you could save up for a TSL in your buddy can get you a discount.
