So - maaaaaaybe with the help of some beer, I bought a Marshall DSL40 when they dropped the prices by something like 60% as part of a closeout. Despite playing guitar for 30+ years, I have never owned (or played through!) a Marshall before (I dunno how I did it either...), so I was anxiously anticipating it.

The "Classic clean/crunch" channel is amazing. It's like everything I have ever wanted out of an amp, where the picking dynamics define whether I get chimey cleans or broken up chunky rhythm. The gain channels.... not so much.

(Also, if you're looking for more business, a mod/footswitch that lets you switch between the clean/crunch and drive1/drive2 channels is something DSL owners are clamoring for...)

I was super bummed - I thought about returning the amp, but as it turns out the EQ controls on the Crown Jewel are infinitely more responsive than the controls on the amp itself. I can hang out on the "classic gain" channel on the amp, and between the mid controls and boost on the pedal, I can get more Marshall-y sounds than the amp can make itself, and can save the overdrive on the CJ (and the super fizzy "modern" distortion channel of the amp) for solos and when I need to cut through.

So - thanks! I already liked the pedal immensely, but as it turns out, the pedal you designed makes my less-than-perfect amp sing!
