I'm looking into getting a metal marshall amp (dsl/tsl 2000)

Is the only difference between the DSL and TSL that the TSL has an extra channel? No Tone Difference?

Also, how different are the DSL 50, and the DSL 100 tone wise?

yes im sorry to say that i have. it sounds like an mg with its mids scooped.

if you want a good marshall for metal try and find a jcm 800 on ebay (out of production but still floating around.) they are much better than the kerry kings and the ts/ds l's.
damnsight cheaper too.

which is weird since it's a jcm800 with it's mids boosted and a bit more gain on tap.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

you know the kerry king head is a jcm 800 with a boost switch and a noise gate right?

OK OK!

I'm In here now.

Why do you want a DSL when you have a 6505?

You do understand that Marshalls are not really the best for metal?

TS What styles are you playing?
Are you willing to go used?

Ya, I'm willing to go used.. and I don't play UB3R BRU7AL metal, I play more hardrock/metal like He Is Legend. I want a high gain amp with a creamy smooth sound, that isn't so god dang harsh at high volumes. (I'm thinking I'm gonna either change the tubes on my 6505+ or get a Marshall)

Even though I like the DSL, I would suggest selling the 6505 and getting a JCM 800 or 900 if you want more gain.

id say get a jcm800 then run it and the peavey together. ive heard this combo before and it sounds amazing

That's sounds like a speaker difference.. I would be running it through a Marshall 1960 slant cab

The second guitarist for my band uses a Peavey Valveking 212 with G12T-75 speakers (for clairity) if that's what you mean, then yeah.

I don't need more gain though, I only turn the pre up to 5 or 6 in my 6505+. I just want a smoother tone.

That's what my friend does, except he has a 5150. It's amazing. So huge sounding.

It's hard for me to make a decision on an amp w/o playing it.. from what I'm hearing, it sounds nice for classic rock... (the F-50 that is) Like.. if I were to play a palm muted break down, It wouldn't feel harsh like my 6505+, but frail and under distorted.

Never heard of that... playing with 2 amps at once?

It's a popular tactic, especially if you have two that compliment each other. In your case you would have really high gain + a smoother tone.
