Hey all. I just signed up to the forum, having read so many useful posts from this board over the years. I guess I should have signed up sooner. At the moment I have a silverface twin reverb (74 if I remember correctly) and a 90's Marshall DSL50. I'm not crazy about either amp, and what I really want is something in the neighborhood of a Vibrolux and a JTM50, but $$$. I have been working on other projects for some months and haven't been playing much, but I'm getting back to it lately and trying to figure out my amps situation. The twin of course is a loud and clean beast, but I think that maybe not too many people know that it can really crunch up (like an old Marshall) at higher volume settings. And I bet that with the channels in phase and jumpered, it could really get crunchy. Anyway, I use an attenuator with 2 of the power tubes removed, master all the way up, and preamp around 6 or higher to get it up to that point when the mood hits, but it's still a loud amp. The speakers in this amp are pretty much shot and have been since I got it, and I think they aren't worth reconing (Utahs). I have ran it through a Weber 1230 which sounds alot better, but this amp really needs a pair of 12's to get into just breaking up territory. I'm considering putting a pair of Weber Signature 12B's in it to warm it up, and I think I have read that the Signature speakers are considerably less efficient, which might help with bringing the volume down a notch when brought up to higher settings. So I could do that, along with a few mods to get the amp more to my liking, or sell it and move on. I have played a silverface twin that was 'blackfaced' by a very reputable amp tech that had a pair of Weber's in it that really sounded great and wasn't too loud when nearly dimed, although the low end was definitely on the mushy side, which wasn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm not sure which model Weber's were in it, but they must have been inefficient. The combination of the speakers and 2 power tubes dropped made the volume level about perfect. The overall sound was smooth and great for blues and general soulful playing. Anyway, I know that my twin could be a cool amp that I would love playing after some tweaks are made. The DSL50 also sounds good when with the master all the way up and preamp around 6 or so with the attenuator just knocking off a bit of the volume. It's a rocker for sure and can also do some nice blues tones, although it's not a particularly classic flavor of Marshall. How I tend to use it is as a single channel non-master amp, same as the twin but for very different types of playing. I have only played the DSL50 through a single Weber 1230, and I know that a pair of greenback type speakers with more mids would better suit the amp. So I guess I'm looking at either going down the rabbit hole with these amps (speakers and some mods) or selling them and finding something in the neighborhood of an old Vibrolux first and a JTM50 later. Working with what I have already would definitely be the least expensive route. I did take a look at the newer 68 Vibrolux Custom, but I think I would prefer one that has a tube rectifier and isn't a pcb amp. Looking at the construction of the DSL50 makes my head spin, and those DSL amps (and many other pcb amps) are prone to some common pcb/heat failures. With the way that I tend to run my amps (cranked into the sweet spot), that is probably going to come sooner rather than later. Anyway, apologies for being a bit longwinded on a first post. But if anyone reads this dribble, thoughtful recommendations are appreciated.
