Which Marshall head would you prefer to have:

DSL 100
DSL 50

just wondering personal opinions and dont have anything like DSL 100 so i could sell it and get loads of money and buy another amp!

i want to know which to get for Gigs and band practises and home play

the marshall jubilee head *druels*

but out of them the 50 would be better for home practicing

50 definetely. A valve amp over 50 watts is capable of killing every horse in the county. And this is a MARSHALL we're dealing with. Marshall = bloody loud. 100 watts is only for huge arenas. Seriously.

Those things iz well loud, isn't they?

+1 again for the DSL50 cause I can drive it more earlier than the DSL100
because of the headroom...
#6
Ef' em both.

Get a MG!

Kidding.. My god. I'm kidding.

DSL 100, if you're going to be gigging and stuff.

I'm not sure

but I think it's the limit of how high you can have your clean channel
well.... clean or somthing about the power tube saturation...

about people saying the 100 is for big gigs...

it should all be going through the P.A anyway so would be all ok

alrite thanks lads DSL 50 is for the win by looks
#10
Those are the same amps. Both sound the exact same. The 100 is just more power. Get the 100. Get the 50 and the first gig you'll play, trust me, you'll want the 100.

I would prefer the 50W version.

50w would be plenty loud but might not give you the headroom you'd be needing at large gigs. If you play a lot of clean stuff, go for the 100w, if not, go for the 50. Or even better, get a 100w and a 1/2-Power switch installed. I have it on my 50w JCM 800 head, and when I'm at home I can change it so i have a 25w amp instead.

The big gigs my band play we always go through the P.A so its fine!

-Infact pretty much all are gigs are through the P.A these days

DSL100 all the way
Thats what i play

Great for live having that extra 50 watts when your really need to cracnk it up mega stlye

Not too practical in the house though

BTW, what is headroom? I understand that lower-wattage amps are easier to drive (seems logical) but what does "headroom" mean?


You pretty much explained it. Headroom refers to amount you can drive an amp before it starts to break up.
