Struggled dialing in marshall amps for years. When they’re on, they sound great. That being said, my Soldano SLO 100 is everything I love about Marshall with all the bad stuff already dialed out.
I need to dive into the Marshall's, but I've been happily stuck on the D-30 also (my main/desert island amp for the past 8 years has been a Matchless HC30 - head/cab version of the DC30). The D-30 model in the Axe III is the first time I've ever entertained selling my desert island HC30. It's that good, and that accurate. Just an amazing amp model.And for me, I grew up playing Marshalls.
Now I'm hooked on the Matchless D-30 Just CRAZY good!!!
