borrow a completely different amp/setup and play everything through that, or have someone else dial in your amp for a little bit, just gives perspective on everything.

+1

You had something working before. If it works don't fuck with it! Add the Helix and you also have some of the best clean tones you can imagine!

Yeah. Keep the Marshall's or the favorite ones....Helix LT slave the Marshall's and your good to go.

You keep the core of what you fell in love with and if you ever get tired of it the Helix LT is there ready to give you anything you want.

If the Helix had a dual 12ax7 preamp or three of them in there that would be the shit....why?!?! Because they can. :lol: :lol: But no real need to go there as it doesn't really make you miss preamp tubes if your running it through a good tube power section.

Lol, it's just that you picked up another DSL for the umpteenth time, which triggered your reflex to get rid of it again. Only this time it encompassed all your other gear, too. :lol:

I am ready to toss my Fender out on the street. My Ibanez 15w smokes it tonally. It's like a blanket over the sound...going to try my G12-70's in it.

I am not sold on the new DSL. I've been noticing a few difference from the previous ones and I think I like the regular "H" version better.

I've been using my JCA50H for the last few days and I am happier with it than I am with the DSL.

The thing is Billy can make anything sound awesome. Whatever amp he decides on, he is sure to coax the best tone out of it. One of my absolute favorite tones Billy has displayed was a lead clip with a Peavey Classic 50. It sounded a amazing! Whatever he decides on, I am sure to my ears it will be excellent. That said, Billy has OCD with his gear. It must be a curse sometimes :lol:

It's too bad I didn't live closer to you Billy, I would totally let you use my Mark III. Maybe you could show me how to dial that sucker in better.

Was just thinking Billy, you might totally dig the Duotone. It has a parallel loop, so you would need to use the dry kill effect on your G Major, but it has killer tone!

Yeah I wish I could track one down to try it out. It's hard to find H&K amps at stores though. :(

I used to dread recording bass because I could never get a consistent tone. I went thru a few plugins, a sansamp type pedal and straight into the interface without much luck. One day I was in a hurry to get a bass line done so I loaded up my ignite bass plugin and didn't touch anything other than the level control on my interface. Prior to that I was always tweaking the plugin but apparently they have a default setting for a reason: ignite knows what they are doing and I don't.

But I really didn't get along with it at all. The H version was perfect for me when it comes to what made the DSL tone so attractive

Was the H version made in UK?

No.

I believe the H version was more or less a reissue of the original DSL, except with an upgraded resonance control vs the originals "deep" switch. Which ime, was always a bit too thin with it off and a bit too fat with it pushed. The resonance control let you dial it in just right. That's what made it just about the perfect Marshall for me

I'm 100% happy with my rig... Just a Mesa Mark IV, a Mesa 4x12, a couple LTD deluxes and a Gibson SG. plus some beater guitars that I don't use anymore. Thing is... I'm a guitar player first and foremost and as long as I get a good gain, a useable clean and a guitar that stays in tune I'm happy and the Mark IV more than delivers that. They are just tools. I don't dwell too much on the idiosyncrasies of tone, and If I did i'd probably go from amp to amp every month or WEEK!

Stick with the DSL and call it a day/week/year.... whatever. It seems to have made you happiest of all the amps you've owned.
