Marshall DSL 2000 50watt

Do these have El34 or EL84 tubes? I know the 100watt has 34 but I thought I read something about the 50watt having 84's?

I haven't liked the bottom end of EL84 amps.

Re: Marshall DSL 2000 50watt

Nah, I'm 98% sure they have a pair instead of a quartet of EL34's. Typically, most 50 watt amps come with a pair instead of a quartet of whatever you'd use in a 100-watt amp (6L6's, EL34's, KT77's), whereas you only see EL84's in 45-watt amps or less.

Odds are if you haven't liked the bottom end of EL84's vs. 34's, it's more that particular amp than the tubes - they often get described as a more "pushed," hotter-sounding 34. EL34's really aren't that deep anyway, compared to a 6L6.

Re: Marshall DSL 2000 50watt

Has anyone played both the 100 and 50 watt. Is the tone the same or is the 100watt more aggressive?

Also, I've heard the TSL doesn't sound as good as the DSL. Is this true?

It certainly has less gain than the DSL - "better" is subjective.
