Great amp & tone
Simply said, best of both worlds. You get the great Marshall sound from the DSL40CST, and a great speaker, too. I have heard these combos with the regular Celestion and the Celestion Creamback 65. Night and day, Creamback wins! Plenty of headroom for most outings. Does the bedroom levels really well, thanks to the 1/2 power switch. Built like a tank, and I feel comfortable knowing I will not need a backup at the show. I believe the tubes are Marshall branded "JJ's", which are fantastic for this amp. Give this combo sometime to break in well, and the Creamback 65, too. The character of this amp gets better and better with time after the break in period. I have read reviews of people saying this amp has too much treble, but I am sure they did not give it time to breakin, and they don't have the Creamback. I have not experienced this, and I play a single coiled Stratocaster and a Les Paul. No issues!
I would like to mention the Sweetwater team, and my sales engineer, Patrick Weaver. In my humble opinion, Patrick has been there for me with all my purchases, from point A to point B, and I would strongly urge anyone reading this, and considering this pedal to deal with Patrick. Very professional minded and is product smart to answer any questions.
I am very pleased with making my purchase of this product through Sweetwater, and will continue to make more purchases in the not so distant future. Thank you Sweetwater!
