Re: Marshall Jcm 2000 DSL vs. 5150 II
I tested out the DSL and TSL before and have the 5150 combo. For raw metal and rock, nothing really beats the 5150, it is the Scandinavian Metal sound afterall.
That said, the 5150 is not only limited to high gain stuff. It can do classic rock stuff pretty good. Cleans on the 5150 II should be pretty good too.
The rhythm channel sounds so much like a hotrodded marshall it's not funny. It's very aggressive and punchy and has loads of gain. The lead channel is tighter, smoother, brighter, and has way more than enough gain for anything metal and beyond.
The difference between a 5150 and 5150II would be the 5150II is slightly brighter and has less gain(which isn't saying much since it's still way too much gain)
The DSL and TSL in comparision have farty and buzzy gain and they do not sound like a Marshall at all to me.
