Orange Rocker
ENGL fireball/powerball
Framus Cobra/Dragon

and I've been wondering if the Line 6 Vetta II is worth the cash.

I am fond of my Bugera for what it does, but since we are dreaming I'll take a Soldono SLO. So far, that has been the best sounding amp I've ever heard.

My favourite amp is my main gigging amp ! A Marshall DSL401 pimped with a Celestion Vintage 30 speaker, JJ pre-amp valves and EHX power amp valves, and to get my rhythm tone its on OD2 driven with a Ibanez Turbo Tubescreamer. Gain about 6, bass 7, mids 4-5, treble 7.

Gets me a powerful, unique overdriven metal tone that cuts right through the mix.

Guitars played through are PRS SE Singlecut with EMG's & Epiphone Les Paul Custom with SD Blackouts for my band who play metal/hard rock.

I get excellent bluesy tones out of it when I jam on my Epiphone 335 on OD1 low gain, and get pretty good cleans out of it too. Classic rock is obviously easy to dial a tone in, its a Marshall !

Very versatile amp and if tweaked right gets just about any tone at a quality level, considering how much I payed for it it has been a bargain. The speaker change and valve change certainly made a big difference may I add.

Soldano SLO-100 or a Mesa Boogie Mark IV - I've had both.

But, my Mesa Boogie Rectoverb combo gets 97% of what I'd need both of those for in normal practice, recording, gigging situations anyway. The other two have just a little more icing on the cake though

hm sweet ill have to check that out


The DSL is a good sounding amp, and pretty versatile. Marshall makes pretty brittle boards that rattle loose and cause problems pretty easily, and I've know that to happen to a number of DSLs that many friends have gigged with. You don't want to bounce that thing much at all, and make sure you send in your warranty card if you buy one.

Mesa and other upper brands give you longer warranties, and have hand wired floating leads on the boards, giving a lot of cushion to connection points, and making it more sturdy for gigging musicians, lessening the chance of any connection problems inside. Just a note...

whats the difference betweeen the dual rectifiers and the triple rectifiers?


At least 50 watts more power (and I guess one more recrtifier tube?). I believe there are some tonal differences caused by the extra muscle too.

It's tough.

I love the Super Reverb for its beautiful cleans and luscious reverb.
I love the AC30 for its breakup tones and British jangly light OD
I love the Plexi for its hard rock tones and British Crunch.

At the end of the day, I will probably end up building one of each
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

I thought the Triple Recto had a Solid State Rectifier.


I believe at least the dual and triple rectifiers can be switched between solid state or tube rectifiers. Not sure about the single, I think it has SS only.

Scott,

I've just bought the DSL401 & i love it. What difference would a tubescreamer, or say a badmonkey overdrive make to the amp?

Thanks mate

Oh and I forgot the Bogner XTC, still not as good as the Diezel though imo.
