Into hard, classic, melodic rock and I play loud

Im looking at buying either a Marshall DSL 100 or and TSL 100

What would you guys think?

All help is greatly appreciated, I look forward to hearing from you.

DSL50

more classically voiced than the TSL...
not much point in going for the 100 over the 50, to be honest.
Gibson LP w/SD59+PRS Dragon II
Fender 52RI Hotrod Tele
PRS Tremonti SE w/Bulldog Extremist/Black Label

take a look into vox amps...maybe apply a boost to an AC30 head..or try an ac50 head or combo...i know people who swear by the ac50 (some say better than an ac30....but you cant pull me away from my handwired head)

for the marshall side id look into a used vintage modern

DSL50 will do the trick.

Unless you REALLY need the extra headroom of a 100 watter....

If you want loud get a 65 watt Fender Frontman, they're pretty cheap as well.

I'm in a similar situation. I'd like a TSL60 or a DSL50 though, not sure which yet. I think I'm more liking the tones from the TSL atm, but will have to try them both. Won't be getting either for a good while anyway, bt i like looking for them XD

Nothing compliments a Gibson Les Paul Custom quite like a Fender Frontman 15R

The dsl will do the trick its a versatile amp that covers a big spectrum. Not much diff in the 50's and 100's. Its all about preference, with the 100 you'll get a lil more headroom, and with the 50 itll break up a little quicker.

From those 2 TSL100 for sure. Why? Because it has a power switch that lets you change it down to 25watts from 100. Should be good dude. Great amp and wit hthat switch you can really do some damage even at smaller gigs.

25 watts is still too much to crank at a smaller gig.

The DSL line sounds better than the TSL line, imo.

As other have said you dont need 100 watts.

Try a DSL50 or TSL60 head or combo

I don't like the sound of the DSL's unless they are cranked enough. I personally think they sound like ass at low volumes.

Look for used amps, a JCM 900/800 should fit the bill.

Actually, look used and look for other amps too. You can get great deals and different selection.

^this. best marshall i played when i was checking out amps.
have you played one?

agreed, cranked they sound great, but even at lower volumes they sound beastly too, not too hard to get a good tone outta them either, despite what most ppl here say

Yngwie Malmsteen and Duane Allman use(d) 50 watt Marshalls live.

Do they have any issue with volume?

not when they run through multiple 50 watt heads. i dont no if they did or didnt
i just think its funny when people say that.sometimes there are advantageous
with more watts.
#27
I mean, if you're playing a huge gig and need a lot of clean headroom then yeah, you'll probably need a 100 watter.

Otherwise, they're not particularly necessary.
#29
I disagree with the Vintage Modern. I've only tried out two Marshalls that weren't MG's (I did once play a combo for a band thing that I loved, but I don't remember the model), the JVM and the Vintage Modern. The Vintage Modern was meh for me, but the JVM was awesome.

I'll only make a suggestion as the final say is yours. But as someone who has played extensively on most of the marshalls that are being mentioned here I must discourage you from them. As you'll see in my signature I have a Fargen Olde 800. This amp beats the pants off of every marshall I've ever played, especially the JCM 800 2204's (the 'good' ones) that it's modeled after. If you can find a used one of these I think you'll be in tonal heaven my friend.
