I want to get a marshall amp. I have looked at the TSL 602 combo and herd good read good reviews about them.

But when i see any bands perform i have always seen them play with seperate head and cab. I take it they are better but more expensive to get the same quality as a combo?

Does anyone know the difference between a TSL 601 and TSL 602.

Are the TSL range better than the DSL?

If anyone knows their onions about marshall amps id appreciate their help

Thanks

Advantages over a hed & cab over a combo is:

1, You can get a 4x12 cab and it'll displace more air, you'll also be able to hear the difference in size, such as an increase to the bottom end.

2, You can expand on a cab, buy a mesa cab and marshall head, a ampeg cab & marshall head, to get that tone valhalla your looking for.

TSL > DSL

One because it has one extra channel I believe?
Someone care to clarify?

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Can you get the TSL 601 to go quite enough to play in a bedroom. Or is their a minimum volume of loudness. I dont want to buy one and find its to loud to play at home but good for gigs?

you never NEED a halfstack- they're just nice to have

DSL>TSL

DSL has more gain, and is less muddy- i tried them head to head for a while as i was considering buying one of them a couple of months ago.

The 601 will be quiet if you turn it down, it wont sound brilliant but yeah, you can play it at any volume you like!

Also - the 601 has one 12 inch speaker and the 602 has two 12 inch speakers

yes, it gives it a "bigger" sound, as more air is being pushed- it's the same advantage as "Kingyem0c0re" said with a 4x12 over a combo

also think about whether or not you will be moving your amp around? most people say its easy to move a 2x12 combo but its not. its pretty heavy and it just takes more space (kind of)

for example its easier to move a head by itself and then a 2x12 cab (maybe 4x12) separately than a big 2x12 combo

generally... but now that a think about it a 4x12 is pretty big.... oh well

I say just go with a combo for now. Worst comes to worst, you just hook it up to an external cab, anyways. They'll mic you for gigs, and as said before, with 4 speakers pushing more sound at you, it'll be even louder for bedroom practice.

Keep that in mind. Put your ego aside, too.
