I don't care for Marshalls. It seems they only "do their thing" at volume levels I simply cannot tolerate, and otherwise sound brash and tubby to me. I've always supposed that their reputation stems from rockers who can actually stand the necessary volume levels. I cannot. I use a '65 DR, but simply cannot bear to crank it up - it's overwhelming at gigs once turned up past 4. I usually like a very clean sound, and the DR stays clean up to and over any level I want to be around. It sounds fabulous that way. Come to think of it, I've never used a cranked amp at a gig, no matter what it was. Too loud, too dirty, no dynamics. I know that's how a lot of folks get their sound but I can't do that. So: cranked up amps are overrated.
