I bought a small Marshall amp yesterday like the one on the right shelf. Except mine has the settings or dials on the top of the back. It has 3 letters, CO and a backwards C and just found it was a 50

Excellent choice with the DSL-1.  No compromises, but won't break the bank too badly.  👍👍

Yeah cheers...  I am happy with it too, it kind of sounds like a mini JCM 800.. The idea of the modelling amp is much better than the reality. And while there is no doubt they are getting better I know what my ears tell me and the experience of trying 3 digital amps in a row and the feeling of pleasure I got when I then tried the tube amp it just became very obvious to me which one I liked the sound of the most.

It was completely instant too. The second I heard it I knew. And I am not even that fussy when it comes to sound, I had an MG15fx for many many years that was the only amp I had. It did for me what I needed it for I never really used to think much past that.

I just bought a original 59 Princeton 5f2-a along with a 60 Fender steel guitar from a estate.   Both originally bought at the same time in 60.

Its bloody great... Totally happy with my choice. Just does exactly what I want without any fuss and even at the 1w setting its loud enough with the volume on 1-2 in my tiny flat, to pump the gain a bit needed to be in half watt mode  [lol]  Very good indeed ..  Really is like a mini JCM 800. The reverb isnt great but itll do pig...

The newer MIC DSLs don't have great reverbs.

I have the 40CR, it's passable and that's being gracious.  I like the amp tho, so I don't fret about it  🙂

 

My JVM502H has an AWESOME reverb.  So Marshall can do good reverb, they missed the mark IMHO with DSLs.
