hey wuts shakin

ive been wanting a marshall dsl for a good while now and i now have the money for it. but, out of almost nowhere, my bandmate bought one.... i'm now unsure if i should still get the dsl or get something different for a more versitile sound.

would having 2 of the same amp in a band take away from that "big" sound that everyone loves? maybe it will add a tightness to the sound that would be cool stuff, i dont know, would someone please share their know-how?

thanks much

It;s fine - you might have two identical amps but you've got two different guitarists with different EQ settings, different styles and different guitars playing different parts.

6L6 amps compliment EL34 amps pretty well, maybe consider something with 6L6s?

Radiohead all use Vox AC30s most of the time, but think of the variety of sounds the different guitars produce. You will probably have to work on the EQs a bit though, if you have similar pedals, pickups and EQs, the sounds might blend too much.

can't he just get the dsl anyway and switch to tubes [to 6l6] or is it only with some amps like the windsor studio that can be compatible with difrnt kinds of tubes?

Yeah, if you're both generic guitarists bashing power chords it'll sound like ****, but if you both are good players with developed styles it should be fine.
