I just played a gig with another band. One of the guitarist in the other band asked if He could use my JVM, I usually don't let anyone use my head but I noticed the 2nd guitarist in the band had a TSL100.

the inner geek in me couldn't resist a face off with the TSL,
"sure", I said. "knock you socks off, dial in any tone you want". He replied "I usually use the same settings as my friends TSL, because mine is being repaired." so they went on and done the sound check, the TSL first. It sounded pretty cool, a little fizzy for my taste. but then it went on to my JVM. Well well there was that awesome no Sh*t tone that I love it was mind blowing good, it just blew the tsl away, same settings but it was like comparing chalk and cheese they we're "that" different.

Anyway any one who asks "how do get a TSL tone from a JVM" you can't because a JVM a tone can't suck that much.

True. I own a TSL. The JVM owns it in every way imaginable. except the reverb, I like the the TSL's spring reverb better

I would agree. There is no comparison. I sold my TSL because I never played it in my studio. It was just easier to fire up the the smaller Marshall or run my GT-8 into Pro Tools. Now with the JVM it doesn't matter if I'm playing for 20 minutes or an 1hr plus. I fire it up. I have to have that sound!

The TSL concept was great. That and the 3 channel Mesa Dual Rectifier were like a Godsend because it was the first time you could (theoretically) achieve clean/dirty/solo for live use without using pedals. In the end the TSL was not for me. Too scooped, too bright, etc. To me, Marshalls, the Mesa Rectifier and a number of Fender amps, defined every genre of music from the 50's to today. If you have one of these three (along with some good guitars), you can make just about any sound.

I sold my Marshall TSL602 combo to buy the JVM(not bad, just too 'spikey' for my liking). That being said, I loved the luxury of three channels.

Problem is if I ever move on from the JVM (which history says will eventually happen), how can I go from 12 channels/modes back to three or four??

Currently I am using a total of six combinations of channel/mode and that is stripped back so I can do all the changes with the JVM pedal.

The more you get , the more you want.
