It doesn't sound the same at stage volume as it does at home. At low volume, that exacerbates the treble issue. When you crank it up, things get smoother and deeper. It definitely sounds best at full power and at least halfway on the masters, but that is very loud and not usable in many situations. In a choice between the AC30 and the DSL, the DSL is a no brainer, especially for home use. You can't use an AC30 at home, no matter what you're told. Those things are monstrous.
Do you use yours set to 20W for playing at home?

I thought the 15W version might be better, but it doesn't have the effects loop and it's got less headroom, so the 40W would probably be more useful for when/if I start playing gigs again.

there's always the option to use your preferred overdrive/distortion pedal into the green (clean/crunch) channel, and the red (high gain) channel for more MB
I'd probably use both channels a bit actually, I use pedals for drive just now cause my solid state Vox doesn't give much gain for chuggz, but the Marshall's gain sounds great. I take it MB used/uses the red channel mostly, so it sounds like 2001 new born riffage?

I do usually set it to "half power", but that doesn't drop the level that much.
I actually use the dsl15c at home more. They're very similar, but you're right, the 15 doesn't have enough headroom, that's exactly why I got the 40c. I really like the 6v6 output tubes they just can't compete with my drummer. Perfect for home use though. My 15c is still for sale by the way I really should get my Arden in gear and advertise it.

Yeah red channel, but before that he used the crunch mode on the green channel.



Pretty sure it stays on green throughout this gig. He switches channels on the soldano though, because there are just so many tones to choose from on that amp.

Also, won the bid for the 4x10 solid state with added QOTSA mojos. Didn't really increase that much - I don't think anyone else wanted to bid, since they probably don't know what it is either.

Yeah I did, based on real life experience. I guess tone is in the fingers after all

I actually really like the AC15 when I tried it out at GC. The Master Volume makes it so manageable. I wish it wasn't such a huge amp though. Why don't more small tube amps have master volumes

Because power tube distortion? Isn't that why you use small tube Amps?


Also, anyone want to pay 20,000 for a smashed up Wolfgang?

I just checked to see what you meant.

Fucks sake. It has to be worth less than that to begin with, but also because it's been repaired, so it isn't exactly in the same state that it was when it left MB

Makes Frenchsockman8000euros look like a bargain.

I could see it making a couple of grand, but 20? GTFO.

Especially since he lowered the price to 4900 euros at one point.

Jaicen. Are you familiar with the plek? I've only had one setup done on it several years ago, but I'm considering doing it again. Not sure if it's worth it though... close to $300...

I'm not really, sorry. I understand the process and stuff but I think a quality luthier will do as good, if not better to be honest.

I think the only advantage with Plek is that it's consistent and cost effective for production.

A good luthier will cost $150-200 though?

Hmm not sure then. I had one done several years ago, and it plays pretty well, but whether or not it's better than a good luthier setup I'm not sure

If you're including fret and nut work, then that sounds about right. A standard setup is usually in the $75 range, but I usually just do that myself.
