Jcm 2000 DSL silver anniversary ???? Just got offered one of these on a trade deal, know nothing about them and can't find a lot of info apron research, I was chasing a 2525h and cab to complement my Mesa 5-25 and I've been offered one of these. Any advice on how they perform or sound?? I'm thinking that 100 w may be a bit too much for my needs , but I must admit that the thought off 100 wasps done give me a bit of a chubby!!!!

I'd imagine it being the same as the other JCM 2k models. If it's a 100 watter it will be able to switch to 50w. Love my DSL 50

Thanks guys, I'll have to press this bloke for more info I think ,I'm gunna go and have a look at it on Monday , I'm a it weary of it because he said if you crank it up over 2.5 on the volume it peals paint!!! I've had the cops around here enough with a 25 watter lol. Kind of convinced myself on the mini jube but this is mighty tempting. Thanks again, I'll get back to you. Staffy.

I owned and gigged a DSL50 for many years. I owned one of the early british made ones. They're versatile and loud. Mine sounded fantastic, however, volume 1-2 at home was loud enough... 3-4 was practice room level, 5+ was getting silly. 7+ doesn't really get much louder at that volume (adding another 4x12 would do the job) but the power tube saturation would increase adding at bit more roar.

The 2525 is a gift from the gods. There is no other next to the sound of this gem.
Thanks Frozen, I was hoping that you would chime in on this given your opinion on the 2525 , you must have had that amp for a good while now, sounds like you are suitably impressed. I can't seem to justify having a big behemoth and not being able to crank it, I love my 5-25 and I think that a 2525 would compliment it well

It's my favorite amp of all time and my favorite Marshall. It's not voiced for modern metal; instead it's a very classic sounding amp and very chimey. It's got the old twang sound rather than a general high-gain/overdrive sound. The distortion DOES get up there at higher gain settings but overall the tone is a bold reminder that Marshall doesn't make them like they used to. It's worth checking out if you're into true vintage tones.
