    I had a Marshall DSL 40C that never hit my sweet spot, with or without the C-19 mod. She was a wonderful amp, but just not a wonderful amp for me.
    Today, I took her in and traded her for a new Vox VT40X. I had enough money on the trade to get the amp, a 5 button foot switch (on order), some warranties on the amp and switch, a $20 dollar gift card, and $6 cash. Sweet.

    I played around with the amp for a good 45 minutes in the store, and have a lot to figure out about it's capabilities. It certainly has a range of sounds, from dark and muddy to bright, so I'm sure I'll be able to leverage a lot of good noises out of it.

    I went with the Vox over a Fender Mustang because I already have a beastly huge Fender Deville (that I got used for $345...) that blasts the paint off the walls.

    More to follow as I play around with it. Gonna crack a bottle of red and read the manual.

    As my kids would say, "Apparently this is a thing."

    Mea culpa.

    This is the correct sub-forum for this! OP I don't know if you were aware but posting a Modelling amp NAD, where in the process you sold a tube amp to do it, in the Squawkbox, was pretty ballsy!
    Congrats on the new amp!

    Oh, man am I glad I saw that in time! :eek2:

    I posted a whole rant in here about all the replies from other members and myself being gone and even tagged the members to alert them! :run:

    If that wasn't bad enough I tagged the forum admin to take a look to see if there had been a meltdown behind the scenes! :run::shock:

    Wow! I could'a ended up with a serious pie in the face over that! :wow:

    Don't DO that to me! I'm too easy! :rofl:

    Sorry for the confusion. I posted in the main amp section and no-one had replied when I edited the thread and moved it here. I couldn't figure out how to delete it.

    I had already posted over in the Backstage, but figured this was a better place.

    Again, pardon the confusion.
